Stock rise; fed feeds dow’s triple-digit moves: Marketwatch

YEREVAN, June 18. /ARKA/. U.S. stocks surged Monday, with the Dow industrials extending their triple-digit moves into a fifth session, as investors latched onto any clues ahead of Wednesday’s monetary-policy decision by the Federal Open Market Committee.

“I’m a little surprised investors are willing to get this much in front of the FOMC meeting, just on the off chance the Fed says something meaningful,” Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott.

The S&P 500 SPX +0.76%  added 12.31 points, or 0.8%, to 1,639.04, with energy and technology pacing sector gains that included all but one of its 10 industry groups.

Netflix Inc. NFLX +7.12%  surged 7.1% after the video-streaming service inked a multi-year accord with DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. for original programming. Micron Technology Inc. MU +3.76%   jumped 3.8% after Citigroup raised its price target for the memory-chip manufacturer.
