ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Wall Street minted its second straight session of solid gains on Tuesday (February 16), as investors snatched up beaten-down consumer discretionary, industrial and tech shares. All 10 S&P sectors closed higher following an extended holiday weekend. Financials, healthcare and materials also posted gains of more than 1.5 percent. Building on Friday's rally, the S&P 500 tallied its biggest two-day percentage gain since August. Slumping oil prices, fears of a China-led slowdown in global growth and uncertainty over central bank monetary policies have roiled the markets this year. The S&P 500 remains down 7.3 percent in 2016. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 222.57 points, or 1.39 percent, to 16,196.41, the S&P 500 gained 30.8 points, or 1.65 percent, to 1,895.58 and the Nasdaq Composite added 98.44 points, or 2.27 percent, to 4,435.96.
