Stocks ended another bumpy day on Wall Street with solid gains Friday, but the market still finished with its worst week in nearly three months.

Stocks turned wobbly this week as investors re-evaluated their expectations for economic growth, which many skeptics have been saying were overly optimistic.

Small-company stocks and bond yields rose, meaning investors were a bit more willing to take on risk again a day after the heavy market rout.

The S&P 500 gained 39.21 points, or 1.3%, to 3,041.31.
