Gains remain strong as stocks sit slightly beneath their session highs. Buying interest has also broadened, such that health care stocks and utilities stocks are up 0.6% after they had been mired near the neutral line for most of the session. Even telecom has pushed up to a 0.4% gain after it had been in the red for a couple of hours.
