Stocks are edging higher in the early going on Wall Street Tuesday as the market’s momentum cools off following the second record high in a row for the S&P 500. The benchmark index was up 0.2% in morning trading. Banks and health care stocks were doing better than other sectors, while technology shares were lagging the field after leading it a day earlier. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was up 0.1%, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.5%. European and Asian markets were modestly higher, and crude oil prices were up a little less than 1%.
