(CNN) - The first half of 2014 on Wall Street is officially in the books and performance was solid despite a lackluster finale on Monday.
Both the Dow Jones and S&P 500 lost ground slightly on Monday after flirting with previous record highs.
But the S&P has already logged 22 record highs this year alone, ending the first half up 6 percent.
While that first-half rally trailed last year's performance, it still easily bested the Dow's narrow gain of just 1.5 percent.
The NASDAQ landed safely in the green on Monday, leaving it up a healthy 5.5 percent so far this year.
