US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Wall St rises on earnings optimism, lira rebound

Aug 14 (Reuters) - Wall Street’s three major indexes rose on Tuesday with the S&P 500 posting its strongest gain in three weeks as a string of healthy earnings boosted investor optimism and a rebound in the Turkish lira eased contagion fears.

The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended four-day losing streaks with broadbased gains across industry groups.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 112.22 points, or 0.45 percent, to 25,299.92, the S&P 500 gained 18.03 points, or 0.64 percent, to 2,839.96 and the Nasdaq Composite added 51.19 points, or 0.65 percent, to 7,870.89. (Reporting by Stephen Culp Editing by Susan Thomas)
