SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- U.S. stocks ended broadly higher Tuesday, recouping most of the prior session's losses, as Dell
Inc.'s planned leveraged buyout, at a steep premium, engendered talk of more rich buyouts. The Dow Jones
Industrial Average ended up 99.22 points, or 0.7%, at 13,979.30. The S&P 500 ended up 15.58 points, or 1%, to 1,511.29. Tech gained 1.4%, leading all 10 industry groups higher. The Nasdaq
Composite rose 40.41 points, or 1.3%, to 3,171.58.
