U.S. stocks rise at the open, helped by flash PMI
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- U.S. stocks edged up at the open on Thursday, as an encouraging reading on U.S. manufacturing offset downbeat economic reports from China and Europe. U.S. stock futures had started to rally after U.S. labor and inflation data that largely matched expectations, then gained further after Markit's U.S. flash purchasing managers' index jumped to its highest level in almost four years. The S&P 500 was last up 3 point to 1,832, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 18 points to 16,058. The Nasdaq Composite rose 11 points to 4,249.
