These stocks rose the most as Washington (apparently) averted another shutdown

U.S. stocks rallied Tuesday after Democratic and Republican leaders reached an agreement to prevent another government shutdown and partially fund President Trump’s plan for new barriers on the southern border.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average
DJIA, +1.49%
 shot up 372 points (1.5%) to close at 25,425.76, while the S&P 500
SPX, +1.29%
 added 1.3% and the Nasdaq Composite Index
COMP, +1.46%
 climbed 1.5%.

Trump said he wasn’t “thrilled” with the agreement. However, investors expected a new spending bill to be passed by Congress and signed by the president in time to avoid a Feb. 15 deadline.
