U.S. stocks rose on Friday, as investors displayed a little risk appetite, thinking a new page in the calendar might push the market past the issues that drove it down earlier in the week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average—which snapped a five-quarter winning streak Thursday—rose 482.54 points, or 1.4%, to 34326.46. The S&P 500 rose 49.50 points, or 1.1%, to 4357.04 after the broad stocks index closed out its biggest monthly loss since March last year. The technology-focused Nasdaq Composite Index rose 118.12 points, or 0.8%, to 14566.70.
