NEW YORK — The latest on developments in financial markets (all times local):

1 p.m.

An early rally on Wall Street has mostly evaporated in afternoon trading, leaving indexes with meager gains following a two-day rout.

Longtime investor favorites like Amazon and Apple were still higher Friday, but banks turned lower and energy stocks were also lagging.

Major indexes fell more than 5 percent over the previous two days as investors worried about rising interest rates.

The S&P 500 rose 12 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,740. It's heading for its worst week since March.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 60 points, or 0.2 percent, to 25,116. It was up more than 400 in early trading.

The Nasdaq rose 79 points, or 1.1 percent, to 7,407.

Small-company stocks were mostly lower, and more stocks fell than rose on the New York Stock Exchange.

Stocks are solidly higher on Wall Street as the market makes up a small bit of the ground it lost in a massive two-day rout.

Indexes are up about 1 percent, but they're still on track for their worst week since late March.

Citigroup jumped 1.4 percent after reporting higher earnings.

The S&P 500 index rose 25 points, or 0.9 percent, to 2,753.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 144 points, or 0.6 percent, to 25,197. The Nasdaq rose 115 points, or 1.5 percent, to 7,439.
