Stocks rise as US manufacturing expands



Published: Thu, February 20, 2014 @ 3:22 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks rose today after a survey showed that U.S. manufacturing expanded at the fastest pace in almost four years. The report helped offset a weak survey on Chinese manufacturing.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 10 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,839 as of 2:43 p.m. Eastern time. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 102 points, or 0.6 percent, to 16,142. The Nasdaq composite climbed 24 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,262.

"...U.S. manufacturing expanded at the fastest pace in almost four years."

It was because of the policies that Bush put into place before Obama took office.

Fixed Noise Channel would be proclaiming that Romney had saved the world from economic peril had he been elected. I guess they'll have to stick with their highly intellectual chatter about ObamaCare and Santa being white. Megan Kelly is rumored to be attending a very formal Tea Party dinner where the dress code is black tie and white sheet.
