Stocks in Google, Facebook and Amazon.com rose Tuesday, riding slight increases in the Nasdaq, which went up 0.8% to 4,112.99. The S&P 500 added 6.94 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,851.98, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 10.40 points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,256.27 by the time markets closed.
