(AP Photo/Richard Drew) (Newser) – Stocks posted gains today as some investors bought up bargains in the wake of last week's big losses—but volume was light as most remained cautious ahead of the State of the Union address, a hearing on AIG's bailout, and a Fed interest-rate decision, the Wall Street Journal reports. The Dow rose 23.88 points to close at 10,196.86. The Nasdaq added 5.51, settling at 2,210.80. The S&P 500 gained 5.02, closing at 1,096.78.
