NEW YORK -- U.S. stocks are rising as investors take the opportunity to buy back into the market a day after it suffered its biggest loss in more than seven months.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 81 points, or 0.5 percent, to 15,453 at 11:53 a.m. today. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index climbed 12 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,754. The Nasdaq composite gained 38 points, or 1 percent, to 4,035.

The market is creeping back from a 326-point drop in the Dow on Monday after disappointing news about U.S. manufacturing.

Michael Kors jumped $14.08, or 18 percent, to $90.75 after the fashion retailer reported stronger earnings. Microsoft rose 14 cents, or 0.4 percent, to $36.62 after it named Satya Nadella as its new CEO.
