Stocks rose and benchmark Treasury yields retreated for a second day amid optimism the economy will continue to benefit from government support.

Technology shares led gains, with the Nasdaq 100 outperforming the benchmark S&P 500. Intel Corp. jumped 7% after the chipmaker named a new chief executive. Treasury received strong demand for a second consecutive day at a government debt sale, helping to send yields down from the highest levels since March.
