NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks closed out a big week with minor gains as markets stage a comeback after a swoon following Britain's historic vote to leave the European Union.

The U.S. market ended the week up 3 percent Friday, its biggest weekly gain since November. British stocks have regained all the ground they lost since the vote last week, and U.S. stocks have come close.

Consumer-focused stocks rose more than the rest of the market. Netflix jumped 5.7 percent.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 19 points, or 0.1 percent, to 17,949.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index gained 4 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,102. The Nasdaq composite climbed 19 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,862.

Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 1.44 percent.
