The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose on Friday on the back of strong earnings from Procter & Gamble as Wall Street tried to regain its footing after a sharp sell-off in the prior session.
The 30-stock index climbed 64.89 points to 25,444.34, led by a 8.8 percent surge in Procter & Gamble shares, their biggest since Oct. 28, 2008. The Dow also posted its first weekly gain in four, climbing 0.4 percent in that time. Procter surged after reporting better-than-expected earnings. The company said it got a boost from strong beauty-product sales.

"The underpinnings of the economy are still in place and earnings are still good," said Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial. "The market is not going to have an immediate recovery; it tends to bounce."
These moves follow a sell-off on in the previous session as investors worried about rising rates, geopolitical tensions and a potential slowdown in the global economy.
"The rising rates, rising volatility and the moves in currencies were a wake-up call" for investors, said Gibson Smith, founder of Smith Capital Investors. "Earnings should be supportive of stocks," but the market is entering a period where it is "realizing the economy is in stronger footing."
Overnight, China said its economy grew by 6.5 percent in the third quarter, missing expectations. Chinese equities surged, however, as officials took steps to support the market, and that was helping sentiment in the U.S.

"This whole thing started a few weeks ago when [Federal Reserve] Chairman Jerome Powell said we're a long way from neutral," said Brent Schutte, chief investment strategist for Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management. "What we're seeing here is a good old fashion valuation repricing."
Schutte added these recent pullback is a buying opportunity for investors.
