Stocks notched their first gain of the week Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, after Spain announced severe budget cuts intended to convince the world that it can meet deficit-reduction targets. It was the best day for the U.S. market since Sept. 13, when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced further steps by the central bank to speed the economic recovery.
