Stocks under Consideration: Rio Tinto plc (ADR) (NYSE:RIO), Telefonica S.A. (ADR) (NYSE:TEF), NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR)

U.S. stocks rose Friday after a solid jobs report bolstered the case for the U.S. Federal Reserve to raise interest rates later this month.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 188 points, or 1.1%, to 17664. The S&P 500 gained 1% and the Nasdaq Composite rose 1%.

All sectors of the S&P 500 rose except for energy, which dropped 1.8%. Investors were awaiting news from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries meeting on Friday. U.S. crude oil fell 2% to $40.26 a barrel.

Should the Fed raise rates later this month, it would solidify a divergence in monetary policy with Europe, which is ramping up stimulus efforts.

The European Central Bank announced measures Thursday that were less aggressive than investors expected, rattling markets on both sides of the Atlantic. Asian stocks fell Friday. European shares were lower but pared earlier losses following the opening gains in the U.S.

Friday’s report is the last major piece of economic data that the Fed will consider before it meets in mid-December. The Labor Department said nonfarm payrolls increased a seasonally adjusted 211,000 in November, beating expectations for 200,000 jobs.
