US stocks open higher, again shrugging off protests

Wall Street stocks opened higher again Tuesday as investors focused on stimulus measures and the lift from a reopening economy more than mass protests in US cities and economic headwinds.

About five minutes into trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average stood at 25,615.35, up 0.6 percent.

The broad-based S&P 500 climbed 0.3 percent to 3,064.83, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index was flat at 9,551.91.
