All 10 groups in the S&P 500 rose as industrial, technology and commodity shares had the biggest gains. Caterpillar Inc., Apple Inc. and Bank of America Corp. climbed at least 2.6 percent to pace rallies among the biggest companies. Exxon Mobil Corp. jumped 3 percent as oil surged 9.4 percent, the most in more than three years as commodities surged. KB Home climbed 13 percent after the homebuilder reported a narrower loss.
