US stocks pare gains but finish solidly higher

US stocks pared gains but closed solidly higher Tuesday, with action focused on Delta Airlines as it buys a stake in Virgin Atlantic and moves higher by Apple, Google and Intel pushing the Nasdaq up.

Also helping were gains in Europe's markets on the back of a surge in German investor sentiment, to a seven-month high.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 79.10 points (0.60 percent) at 13,248.98 in closing trade.

The broad-market S&P 500 added 9.33 (0.66 percent) at 1,427.88, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite rose 44.26 points (1.49 percent) to 3,022.30.
