(Newser) – Stocks powered to another gain as the market makes up more of the ground it lost in a sharp tumble earlier this month, the AP reports. As of Monday the Standard & Poor's 500 index has regained two-thirds of its 10% loss in early February. It closed at an all-time high a month ago. Treasury yields, which have been at the center of worries for stock investors, eased further below the four-year highs they set a week earlier. Berkshire Hathaway jumped 4% after reporting a strong quarter. Dean Foods dropped 13% after its results missed forecasts. The S&P 500 rose 32 points, or 1.2%, to 2,779. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 399 points, or 1.6%, to 25,709. The Nasdaq increased 84 points, or 1.1%, to 7,421.
