NEW YORK (AP) -- Retail stocks are leading the market higher in midday trading after several of those companies turned in better sales reports for March.

The Dow Jones industrial average was up 56 points, or 0.4 percent, to 14,859 at midday. It jumped 128 points the day before.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index was up six points, or 0.4 percent, at 1,593.
The technology-heavy Nasdaq composite index inched up one point, just 0.05 percent, to 3,298.
