NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stocks ended higher on Wednesday, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both hitting record closings after the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting showed U.S. central bank officials were divided over the pace of the economy’s recovery.

According to the minutes of the June 15-16 meeting, Fed officials said they believed there had not yet been much further progress in the economic recovery, but agreed that they should be ready to act if inflation or other risks materialized.
