NEW YORK (AP) - Investors are hoping the stock market will continue to rally this week.
Although last week was Wall Street's worst in five months, the market did manage to recover some of its losses Friday,
The Dow rose 10 points to 14,547 and the S&P 500 index rose 13 1/2 points to 1,555. The Nasdaq composite index also climbed, gaining 39 1/2 points to 3,206.
Friday's slight gains couldn't overcome a tough week for the market, when both the S&P 500 and the Dow lost 2.1 percent. That's their biggest weekly drop since last November.
This is another big week for earnings announcements as 10 members of the Dow and 181 companies in the S&P 500 report results.
