US stocks rose on Wednesday, led by gains in health care and technology companies and giving the market its third straight gain.

Boeing briefly dipped, but finished slightly higher, after the US said it was joining other countries in grounding the company's 737 Max 8 airplane following a fatal crash of an Ethiopian airliner over the weekend.

The market has been rebounding this week following its worst week since December.

The S&P 500 rose 0.7 percent to 2,810. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.6 percent to 25,702. The Nasdaq rose 0.7 percent to 7,643.
