Wall Street ends higher; Nvidia surge offsets Nordstrom, Gap slide

(Reuters) - Wall Street ended higher on Wednesday, lifted by gains in Nvidia and other tech stocks, while Gap and Nordstrom shares tumbled following weak quarterly reports.

Nordstrom tumbled 29% and Gap slid 24%, after the two retailers reported weak quarterly results and warned of supply chain problems ahead of the crucial U.S. holiday shopping season.

Nvidia rallied 2.9% as it bounced back from a selloff in Big Tech stocks early this week. The graphics chipmaker is now up about 150% in 2021.

The S&P 500 spent much of the session near flat before climbing just before the close.

The S&P 500 consumer discretionary sector index rose 0.2% after data showed U.S. consumer spending increased more than expected in October.

The so-called core PCE price index, the Federal Reserve's preferred inflation measure, also accelerated in October.

Various Federal Reserve policymakers said they would be open to speeding up elimination of their bond-buying program and move more quickly to raise interest rates if high inflation held, minutes of the U.S. central bank's last policy meeting showed.

Other data showed weekly jobless claims fell and third-quarter GDP was revised higher, while a University of Michigan survey showed consumer sentiment improved in November.

Coronavirus infections broke records in parts of Europe on Wednesday, with investors worried the continent was again the epicenter of a pandemic that has prompted new curbs on movement.

So far this week, the Nasdaq is down about 1.3%, with investors worried that higher interest rates could hurt the valuations of tech and other growth stocks.

"Equities are under pressure from a combination of rising interest rates, more cautionary news on the earnings front, and also from COVID developments in Europe," said Greg Bassuk, chief executive at AXS Investments in Port Chester, New York.

The U.S. stock market will be closed on Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday, and it will have a shortened session on Friday.

Real estate led among 11 S&P 500 sector indexes with a gain of 1.3% for most of the session.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.03% to end at 35,804.38 points, while the S&P 500 gained 0.23% to 4,701.46.

The Nasdaq Composite climbed 0.44% to 15,845.23.

Volume on U.S. exchanges was 8.9 billion shares, light compared to the 11 billion average over the last 20 trading days.

Tesla Inc rose as much as 0.6%. In his latest of several recent share sales, CEO Elon Musk sold 934,091 shares of the electric vehicle maker worth $1.05 billion after exercising options to buy 2.15 million shares.

PC makers HP Inc and Dell Technologies jumped 10% and 4.8%, respectively, after they logged a more than four-fold rise in quarterly profits amid increasing demand for personal computers.

Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.15-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.47-to-1 ratio favored advancers.

The S&P 500 posted 27 new 52-week highs and 4 new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 55 new highs and 234 new lows.
