Stocks Reverse Early Losses on Strong Consumer Confidence, Chicago-Area Manufacturing Data


Stocks were climbing back into positive territory Friday in very thin volume after better-than-expected data on consumer sentiment and regional manufacturing helped erase early losses resulting from downbeat consumer spending data and a heightened terror threat in London. The S&P 500 inched back over 2,000 while the Nasdaq Composite Index touched another 14-year high thanks to gains by Tesla ( TSLA ) and Apple ( AAPL ). The Dow Jones Industrial Average, however, is lagging the broader market with losses for component companies Wal-Mart ( WMT ) and McDonalds ( MCD ).
