Energy companies led the stock market higher as the price of oil had its biggest jump since April, the AP reports. Big technology stocks, which have been mostly left out of a post-election rally, turned sharply higher Tuesday. Microsoft, Facebook, and Google's parent company, Alphabet, all posted solid gains. Bank stocks, which had soared over the past week, gave back some of those gains. Bond prices edged higher after falling sharply since the election over worries that President-elect Donald Trump's spending plans would lead to higher inflation. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 54 points, or 0.3%, to 18,922. The Standard & Poor's 500 index climbed 16 points, or 0.8%, to 2,180. The Nasdaq composite gained 57 points, or 1.1%, to 5,275.
