Rochester — Stocks in the U.S. rebounded from losses earlier this week as investors continue to weigh in the potential impact of COVID-19 on the global impact. The Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 rose to record highs thanks to outperforming tech shares.

Apple shares also rose 1.6%, rebounding from Tuesday’s losses following its revenue warning about the coronavirus impact in Chinese markets, a move which resulted in a losing session for the U.S. stock market on Tuesday.
