Mo-mo is back! Momentum names lead Nasdaq rally

After a rough patch last week where investors sold some of the market's hottest stocks, momentum names led a sharp rally in the Nasdaq on Tuesday.

The Nasdaq-100 rose 1.3 percent, led in part by recently battered biotech stocks like Celgene and Gilead.

The index is now within 2.6 percent of its most recent high of 3738.32, hit on March 6.
