The benchmark index notched its third consecutive gain after spending most of the day wavering between small gains and losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq composite also budged little, capping the day with miniscule drops.
The S&P 500 rose 2.59 points, or 0.1 percent, to 3,096.63. The Dow slipped 1.63 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 27,781.96. The index had briefly been down around 100 points.
The Nasdaq fell 3.08 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 8,479.02. The Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks dropped 0.39 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,588.79.
