NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are rising broadly on Wall Street as investors prepare for a busy week of updates on inflation. The S&P 500 rose 0.8% in morning trading Monday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq also gained ground. Small-company stocks outpaced the broader market’s gains in a sign of investors’ confidence in the economy. Retailers and technology stocks were among the biggest winners. Clean energy companies, including First Solar, are rising following Senate approval of Democrats’ big election-year economic package. The government will release its July report for consumer prices and wholesale prices later this week.
