Wall Street stocks rallied Tuesday, with tech giant Apple hitting an all-time high and investors applauding encouraging earnings from Coca-Cola and other upbeat company news.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 139.55 points (0.79 percent) to 17,868.76.
The broad-based S&P 500 gained 21.85 (1.07 percent) at 2,068.59, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index surged 61.63 (1.30 percent) to 4,787.64.
Apple, the largest US company by market capitalization, leaped to a record high close on the US tech giant's gains in the smartphone market, expansion of its mobile payments and its soon-to-arrive smartwatch.
Shares rose 1.9 percent to close at $122.02, lifting Apple's market value to $710 billion, the first company to hit the $700 billion milestone close.
JetBlue Airways announced it would be the first major domestic carrier in the US to accept Apple Pay, Apple's mobile payment tool, in-flight. JetBlue rose 2.1 percent.
First Solar jumped 4.8 percent after announcing that Apple agreed to commit $848 million for solar energy to power its data centers.
Dow member Coca-Cola rose 2.8 percent as fourth-quarter earnings translated into 44 cents per share, two cents above analyst estimates.
Starwood Hotels and Resorts added 6.6 percent as fourth-quarter earnings soared 82.8 percent to $234 million. Starwood also announced it would spin off its time-share business into a separate publicly traded company.
Chipmaker Qualcomm rose 4.7 percent following news it will settle an antitrust probe in China. Qualcomm will  pay $975 million and modify its business practices in the country. A note from Deutsche Bank said the agreement removes a major overhang from the stock.
General Motors added 4.2 percent as it disclosed that it received notice from a consortium of hedge funds seeking $8 billion in share repurchases. The shareholders also put forward Harry Wilson as a nominee to the GM board. GM said it would evaluate the candidacy of Wilson, who worked on the Obama administration's auto task force that helped with the automaker's bankruptcy restructuring.
