The Dow rose 89 points, or 0.6 percent, to close at 14,662.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose eight points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,570. The Nasdaq rose 15, or 0.5 percent, to 3,254.

Smaller stocks didn’t do as well. The Russell 2000 slipped four points, 0.5 percent, to 934.

Health insurers rose after the government released revised reimbursement rates for Medicare Advantage plans.

Airlines fell sharply. Delta Air Lines said revenue was hurt by government spending cuts and a technical glitch.

Rising and falling stocks were roughly matched on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was lighter than usual, 3.3 billion shares.
