Stocks rally, post weekly gains


Stocks finished the volatile week with modest gains, helped by a bounce on the main benchmarks Friday. Investors focused on earnings reports from companies such as Google and Huntington Bancshares and brushed aside implications of a Malaysia Airlines crash in Ukraine and Israel’s invasion of Gaza, which triggered a selloff Thursday. The S&P 500 rose 20.1 points, or 1%, to 1,978.22. The Dow added 123.37 points, or 0.7%, to 17,100.18. The Nasdaq jumped 68.70 points, or 1.6%, to 4,432.15.
