Marketwatch, trending stocks and more

U.S. stocks rose Monday, as momentum from last week’s encouraging inflation data and solid earnings carried into the start of this week despite soft data out of China.

China’s economy grew just 0.8% in the second quarter compared with the first three months of the year, the latest sign that the world’s second-largest economy is sputtering. U.S. markets, though, have been largely immune to China’s problems as investors focus on signs of economic strength at home.
