The stock market rebounded Tuesday, logging its best day of the year. Gains were led by the technology sector, which got a lift from some positive comments from analysts. A report on retail sales also boosted investor confidence. Excluding spending on autos, gas and building supplies, retail sales rose more than forecast by economists.
