(Newser) – The stock market shook off a wobbly start and ended broadly higher on hopes that China and the US were making progress on resolving their trade dispute. Industrial and health care companies also posted some of the biggest gains Friday. Despite some weakness in chip companies, the technology sector managed to end higher, thanks in part to a 1.9% rise in Apple. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 110 points, or 0.4%, to 25,669, per the AP. The Nasdaq composite edged up 9 points to 7,816, and the S&P rose 9 to 2,850.
