NEW YORK — Buying just may be coming back into fashion.
Apparel retailers and manufacturers were part of the markets’ stampede Monday, even though Wal-Mart and Target reported below-plan sales for last week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, posting the third-largest point gain in its history, shot up 447.49 points, or 5.4 percent, to 8.711.88. Last Wednesday the Dow jumped 488.95 points, or 6.4 percent. Since last Tuesday’s close of 7,702.34, the Blue Chips have rebounded 13.1 percent. Still, the index is off 5.7 percent so far this month.
