American Tower jumped 5.3%. General Electric plunged 8.8% after slashing its dividend and disclosing a criminal probe into its accounting. The S&P 500 index rose 41 points, or 1.6%, to 2,682. It's still down 8% this month. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 431 points, or 1.8%, to 24,874. The Nasdaq added 111 points, or 1.6%, to 7,161. (Read more stock market stories.)
