Stocks rebounded slightly Tuesday after a rough fall the day before, with the Dow Jones industrial average up about half a percentage point and the S&P 500 up 0.76 percent at closing.

Fear over a slackening global recovery and soft U.S. manufacturing data brought stocks down sharply Monday, with the S&P 500 dropping 2.3 percent to 1741.89 and the Dow Jones Industrial average dropping 325.92 points to 15,372.93 by closing Monday.

The exchanges landed softly up Tuesday at 15,444.79 and 1,755.20 for the Dow Jones and S&P 500, respectively.
