The Dow Jones industrial average logged modest gains Tuesday as renewed worries about a U.S.-led attack on Syria dampened an early rally. The index was also held back by losses for Microsoft and Verizon, after the companies announced big acquisitions.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 23.65 points, or 0.2 percent, to close at 14,833.96.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index gained 6.80 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 1,639.77

The Nasdaq composite gained 22.74 points, or 0.6 percent, to 3,612.61.

For the year:

The Dow is up 1,729.82 points, or 13.2 percent.

The S&P 500 is up 213.58 points, or 15 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 593.10 points, or 19.6 percent.
