    The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 230.39 points, or 1.12 percent, to 20,778.15, the S&P 500 gained 26.95 points, or 1.15 percent, to 2,375.64 and the Nasdaq Composite added 77.50 points, or 1.31 percent, to 5,988.02. U.S. investors are also gearing up for the busiest earnings week in at least a decade, with over 190 S&P 500 members, including heavyweights Alphabet (Xetra: ABEA.DE - news) and Microsoft (Euronext: MSF.NX - news) due to report results this week. Of the 100 S&P 500 companies that have reported results so far, 77 percent have beaten profit expectations, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. This has helped lift the blended profit growth estimates to 11 percent from 10 percent at the start of the earnings season.
