Updated on

U.S. stocks rebounded after their worst week since an August selloff, paced by energy shares amid speculation that any fallout from Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris would have a limited economic impact.

Last week’s hardest-hit group led the rally, an echo of the snapback from the summer selloff, as Chevron Corp. and Exxon Mobil Corp. gained more than 3.5 percent. Procter & Gamble Co. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. led a surge among consumer staples, rising at least 1.8 percent. Defense companies drove gains among industrials, and thermal-imaging camera maker Flir Systems Inc. jumped 10 percent to lead the S&P 500.
