Stocks closed out a big week with minor gains as markets stage a comeback after a swoon following Britain's historic vote to leave the European Union, the AP reports. The US market ended the week up 3% Friday, its biggest weekly gain since November. British stocks have regained all the ground they lost since the vote last week, and US stocks have come close. Consumer-focused stocks rose more than the rest of the market. Netflix jumped 5.7%. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 19 points, or 0.1%, to 17,949. The Standard & Poor's 500 index gained 4 points, or 0.2%, to 2,102. The Nasdaq composite climbed 19 points, or 0.4%, to 4,862. (More Dow Jones stories.)
