U.S. stocks ended moderately higher Wednesday, boosted after upbeat bank earnings that saw shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. rally more than 9%.

The S&P 500 rose 0.2% to end near 2,616, according to preliminary figures, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced around 139 points, or 0.6%, to around 24,205. The Nasdaq Composite was up 0.2% to finish near 7,035.

Financials led the way higher, with the sector rising 2.2% as Goldman shares, which took a beating in 2018, jumped 9.5% after the investment banking giant topped Wall Street expectations with its fourth-quarter results. Goldman was the top gainer for both the S&P 500 and the Dow.
