Silicon Valley stocks rebounded Friday, with the region's biggest tech companies all making gains at the end of one of the most volatile weeks in stock market history. Silicon Valley stocks were led by chipmaker Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), which Thursday reported better-than-expected earnings fueled by higher sales of its gaming and server chips. The stock is one of Silicon Valley's best-performing, having gained more than 85 percent over the past 12 months.
