U.S. stocks couldn’t hang on to a big gain Wednesday, but they still finished broadly higher as technology and health care companies rose. That helped reverse some of the market’s big losses from the week before.
The S&P 500 index rose 14.29 points, or 0.5 percent, to 2,651.07.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 157.03 points, or 0.6 percent, to 24,527.27.
