NEW YORK (CBS.MW) - Blue chips posted a second straight triple-digit gain to end at a seven-week high Thursday and the Nasdaq surged to its best level in more than four months after oil prices fell 4 percent to end below $49 a barrel.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI - News) closed just off its high for the session, soaring 177.71 points, or 1.8 percent, to 10,314.76. In the last two sessions, the benchmark index has risen 279 points.

Within the benchmark index, Altria (NYSE:MO - News) was the biggest percentage gainer, shooting up 8.5 percent, after it said it was mulling alternatives to increase shareholder value, including the possible separation of the company into 2 or 3 entities. Shares of Kraft Foods (NYSE:KFT - News) , its food unit, climbed 3.3 percent.

Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT - News) rallied 3.3 percent on an upbeat third quarter earnings outlook.

Of the handful of Dow components moving lower, Pfizer (NYSE:PFE - News) fell 1.3 percent on concern Canadian health officials were investigating the safety of its Celebrex drug for arthritis pain.

Also, Goldman Sachs, in a note to clients, said the drug maker may have to delay the launch of Celebrex in Japan.

The Nasdaq Composite Index (NasdaqSC:^IXIC - News) gained 19.30 points, or 1 percent, to 2,023.63.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 Index (CBOE:^SPX - News) closed out the session at a more than a 2 1/2 year high, adding 18.47 points, or 1.6 percent, to 1,161.67.

Today's gains come on a combination of factors, said Joe Battipaglia, chief investment officer at Ryan, Beck & Co.

Battipaglia cited "more good news on energy prices with oil prices coming down further, an election that was over and out with a clear winner both in terms of the electoral and popular vote, decent numbers on the economy in terms of productivity suggesting labor is improving and a fall in jobless claims."

"You put it together and I think it gives the market an upward bias."

Crude tumbles to 5-week low
Crude-oil futures closed under $49 a barrel in New York for the first time in five weeks, pressured by the big increase in last week's U.S. crude supplies.

The conflicting reports on Yasser Arafat's condition contributed to the decline.

Crude for December delivery ended down $2.06, or 4.1 percent, at $48.82 on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Late morning stocks got a brief lift on reports suggesting Arafat had died in France, bolstering hopes among some investors that a new leader could broker a peace agreement with Israel.

"The market would probably interpret his passing as increasing the chance of peace in the Middle East," said Mark Bryan, senior vice-president at Brean Murray.

However, a French military spokesman has since denier that Arafat is dead. The Palestinian leader is hospitalized in a French military hospital.

Retail round-up
Turning back to stocks, retailers' latest same-store sales results showed that generally speaking, lower-income shoppers tightened their purse strings last month, while wealthier shoppers continued to spend feverishly.

All the same, the results outpaced expectations at the International Council of Shopping Centers, which earlier this week lowered its October forecast to a gain of 3 percent.

"There were pockets of real strength that lifted the overall picture," said ICSC chief economist Michael Niemira. With 71 retailers reporting, the October results racked up a 4 percent gain -- the best performance since May.

Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE:WMT - News) confirmed that October's sales results were at the low end of expectations, although the retail giant's third-quarter earnings are likely to come in ahead of forecasts, thanks to a tax rate change.

The company said that though total sales came in below expectations, gross margins were stronger and a change in its tax rate fueled earnings that will be at the "high end" of its per-share forecast range of 52 cents to 54 cents.

Target, (NYSE:TGT - News) , J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP - News) , Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN - News) , Federated Department Stores (NYSE:FD - News) and Talbots (NYSE:TLB - News) were some of the other retailers that experienced a solid month.

Turning in a poor October performance, Pier 1 Imports (NYSE:PIR - News) lowered its third-quarter outlook due to continued weak store traffic, pressure on margins, and expectations that consumers will postpone gift-related purchases until closer to the actual holidays. But Pier 1's stock erased early weakness to trade up 2 percent.

Sharper Image (NasdaqNM:SHRP - News) also warned of a larger-than-expected third quarter loss on declining margins and sales that it foresees as slightly lower than anticipated. The company's stock slumped 10.2 percent.

Also, shares of AnnTaylor Stores (NYSE:ANN - News) erased morning weakness sparked by a reduced third-quarter forecast on weak sales at its namesake division, and despite a good October in which the retailer posted a 6.7 percent rise in same-store sales. AnnTaylor ended up 4.1 percent.

On the economic front, the latest week's jobless claims offered some ammunition to those investors who believe economic growth in the U.S. is holding up well.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 19,000 to 332,000 last week, the Labor Department reported. The decline was larger than expected, with economists surveyed by.

A portion of the decline was due to fewer claims from Florida, an indication that the impact from the hurricanes that battered the state in August and September is lessening, a government official said.

Separately, the Labor Department said productivity growth in the American workplace slowed in the third quarter.

Currencies, gold, bonds
On the currency market, the dollar remained under pressure against its major European counterparts.

So-called "safe haven" currencies, chiefly the Swiss franc, picked up some strength amid earlier reports that Arafat had slipped into a coma.

Concern also resurfaced about the ability of the new Bush administration to rein in the trade deficit.

The euro struck an 8 1/2-month high vs. the dollar at $1.2870. Against the Swiss franc, the dollar fell 0.5 percent to 1.1869, an eight-year low.

The weak dollar sent gold futures above $430 an ounce, their highest level in seven months.

Gold for December delivery rose to a high of $434 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange before closing at $430.80, up $5.40 for the session.

Bonds pared gains as the stock market powered ahead in afternoon trading, with investors now looking ahead to Friday's job report amid expectations it may not prove as robust as some predictions.

The benchmark Treasury 10-year note was last up 3/32 at 101 14/32, with its yield (CBOE:^TNX - News) falling to 4.06 percent.

Turning back to the broader market for equities, advancers outpaced decliners by more than 3 to 1 on the New York Stock Exchange, while winners outpaced losers by an 18 to 12 margin.

Around 1.8 billion shares exchanged hands on both the Big Board and the Nasdaq.

Other stocks in focus
Shares of Alcoa (NYSE:AA - News) rose 3.4 percent after Canadian rival Alcan posted a 97 percent rise in third-quarter profit.

General Motors (NYSE:GM - News) climbed 3.1 percent, rebounding from a pullback in the prior session after the automaker reported a 5 percent drop in October sales.

Meanwhile, Credit Suisse First Boston cut its rating on Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA - News) to "neutral" from "outperform" and lowered its price target to $49 from $55.

The broker cited indications that AMR Corp (NYSE:AMR - News) , parent company of American Airlines, is renegotiating Boeing deliveries. Boeing shares ended down 1.1 percent.

In sharp contrast, European defense group EADS, which owns a majority stake in Boeing competitor Airbus, lifted its 2004 earnings outlook on expectations of higher aircraft sales.

In other news, shares of Qualcomm Inc (NasdaqNM:QCOM - News) fell 4.5 percent after the company offered a first-quarter outlook below current analyst expectations.

The wireless components maker also said fourth-quarter sales declined from the previous quarter due to fewer shipments of high-end chips for wireless phones.

Meanwhile, Banc of America analyst Mark Fitzgerald lowered his ratings on Applied Materials (NasdaqNM:AMAT - News) and KLA-Tencor (NasdaqNM:KLAC - News) to "sell" from "neutral," and cut Lam Research (NasdaqNM:LRCX - News) to "neutral" from "buy" due to concerns about excess inventories and what he characterized as overly high valuations.

Shares in KLA-Tencor and Lam Research ended lower, but Applied Materials eked out a gain, buoyed by the rebound in the broader market.
