Stocks rose on Wall Street and solid earnings helped jolt a mix of retailers higher ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. The S&P 500 rose 53.64 points, or 1.4%, to 4,003.58 Tuesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 397.82 points, or 1.2%, to 34,098.10, and the Nasdaq gained 149.90 points, or 1.4%, to close at 11,174.41 %. Best Buy soared 12.7% after the Minneapolis-based consumer electronics chain did better than analysts expected and said a decline in sales for the year will not be as bad as it had projected earlier, the AP reports. All the company sectors in the S&P 500 headed higher, with technology and financial stocks driving much of the rally.

Chipmaker Nvidia rose 4.7% and Charles Schwab rose 1.6%. Energy stocks moved higher along with a 0.4% rise in US crude oil prices. Chevron rose 2.6%. Bond yields mostly fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury, which influences mortgage rates, slipped to 3.76% from 3.84% late Monday.

Several retailers made particularly strong gains following solid financial results. Abercrombie & Fitch surged 21.7% and American Eagle jumped 17.9%.

Nearly every company in the S&P 500 has reported their latest financial results, according to FactSet, and the results have been mixed.
