Market recap: Stocks rebounded from yesterday's steep slide, driven by strong earnings reports from Coca-Cola and J&J and March housing starts which rose 7%. Consumer staples and materials - Monday's biggest laggard - led the advance. Gold prices pushed ahead by almost 2% following a two-session loss of more than $200/oz., but crude oil futures finished flat.
