The S&P 500 snapped a four-day losing streak and the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose for the first day in three as gains in industrials and information technology stocks renewed a buying tone on the benchmark U.S. averages.

Almost all 11 sectors were in the green in late trading, with only consumer staples and utilities on the weaker side. General Electric's ( GE ) gain after announcing job cuts at its GE Power unit and advances in Boeing ( BA ) and Caterpillar ( CAT ) aided the Dow and lifted industrials as investors awaited Friday's non-farm payrolls report.
