(AP) Encouraging news about the U.S. economy is extending the stock market's rally.


U.S. stock indexes rose for the fourth week in a row and are at record levels.


A gauge of future economic activity rose more than analysts had expected, as did a measure of consumer confidence.


The Dow Jones industrial average rose 121 points to close at 15,354 Friday, an increase of 0.8 percent.


The Standard & Poor's 500 rose 12 points to 1,662, or 0.7 percent.


The Nasdaq composite rose 33 points to 3,499, or 1 percent.


Defense contractor Northrop Grumman rose 4 percent after announcing a big stock buyback.


Two stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was lighter than usual at 3 billion shares.
