NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- U.S. stocks soared Tuesday as global worries subsided and first-quarter earnings season continued to exceed expectations.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 194 points, or 1.5%, to close at 13,115 on Tuesday. The S&P 500 increased 1.6% to 1391 and the Nasdaq Composite gained 1.8% to 3043.

Breadth within the Dow was positive with all 30 of the index's components posting gains.

The biggest percentage gainers among the blue chips were Walt Disney (DIS), Kraft Foods (KFT) and IBM (IBM).

TheStreet Ratings gives IBM an A+ grade with a buy rating and $266.87 price target.

Dow component Intel (INTC) topped Wall Street's earnings view for the first quarter but the company forecast a sequential decline in non-GAAP gross margins in the second quarter.

Shares of the world's biggest chip maker rose 6 cents, or 0.23%, in regular trading on Tuesday to $28.47 but dropped 2% in the extended session.

Though not among the largest percentage gainers, Coca-Cola (KO) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) also rose following their first-quarter earnings reports.

Shares of Coca-Cola rose 2.08% to $73.95. The beverage company reported first-quarter net income of $2.05 billion, or 89 cents a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $1.9 billion, or 82 cents.
