Stocks open higher, on track for fifth gain of past six sessions

U.S. stocks opened higher on Thursday, rebounding from a broad decline in the previous session as the tense trading relationship between the U.S. and China once again appeared to ease. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.6%. The S&P 500 added 0.4%. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 0.5%. All three are on track for their fifth rise of the past six sessions.

Bloomberg reported late Wednesday that officials from both countries have raised the prospects of restarting a conversation at a high level. Investors are concerned that a full-on trade war could act as a major headwind to growth. Among the most active stocks on Thursday, Broadcom Inc. agreed to buy CA Inc. for more than $18 billion. Shares of CA spiked 18% while Broadcom lost 15%.
