How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday
U.S. stocks are closing higher Tuesday after another wobbly day on Wall Street.
Investors shook off worries about the economy and rising interest rates to lift the S&P 500 almost 1%, after bouncing back from an early loss. Technology stocks were some of the biggest forces lifting the market thanks to a drop in Treasury yields.
Stocks of energy producers also rose along with oil prices. That helped overshadow trouble at Target, which warned of lower profit margins as it slashes prices to clear out inventory. J.M. Smucker soared on strong quarterly results.
The S&P 500 rose 39.25 points, or 1%, to 4,160.68.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 264.36 points, or 0.8%, to 33,180.14.
The Nasdaq rose 113.86 points, or 0.9%, to 12,175.23.
The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies rose 29.68 points, or 1.6%, to 1,919.56.
