U.S. stocks rose Thursday, ending the S&P 500’s longest bear market since the 1940s and marking the start of a new bull run. The broad index powered higher over the past few months, in large part because of a handful of companies posting outsize gains.  Many of those same stocks, including, Tesla (TSLA) and chip maker Nvidia (NVDA), led the market’s advance Thursday.   That helped propel the S&P 500 up 0.6%, allowing the index to finish up 20% from its October low.  The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.5% to 33833.   Treasury yields retreated. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was at 3.714%, down from 3.782% Wednesday. Yields fall as bond prices rise.   (WSJ – edited by QPI)
