Stock market news
“Stocks rose on Wednesday, with each of the three major indexes climbing as tech shares shook off some recent losses.
The Dow added about 1.4%, or 425 points, led by a jump in shares of Boeing. The S&P 500 gained 1.1%, while the Nasdaq gained just under 1%.
A rotation into cyclical and value stocks and away from some of the high growth names that led markets higher last year has picked up steam over the past week. The energy, financials, materials and industrial sectors have outperformed strongly over the last five trading days, while the information technology and consumer discretionary sectors lagged.”
