(Newser) – Stocks rose broadly on Wall Street Friday, though the market ended a turbulent week of trading with its third straight weekly loss. Financial companies led the buying as the yield on the 10-year Treasury note reversed part of a steep slide a day earlier. Rising yields boost interest rates on loans, which makes lending more profitable. Technology stocks notched solid gains, reversing their sell-off a day earlier, per the AP. Health care companies also rose. The S&P 500 index rose 3.82, or 0.14%, to 2,826; the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 95, or 0.37% to 25,585; and the Nasdaq composite rose 8.7, or 0.11%, to 7,637.
