NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market had its best day in a month, shaking off a three-day slump.

The Dow Jones industrial average gained 154 points, or 0.9 percent, to 17,210 Wednesday.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 15 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,998. The Nasdaq composite rose 46 points, or 1 percent, to 4,555.

Bed Bath & Beyond jumped 7 percent. The home goods retailer reported earnings and revenue for its latest quarter that were better than Wall Street analysts were expecting.

Bond prices fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.56 percent.
