Wall Street ends slightly up, helped by materials shares | Reuters

NEW YORK U.S. stocks eked out a second straight gain on Thursday as materials shares rose with commodities prices, but disappointing forecasts from retailers and anxiety ahead of Friday's monthly jobs report limited the advance.

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI rose 80.13 points, or 0.49 percent, to 16,416.79, the S&P 500 .SPX gained 2.89 points, or 0.15 percent, to 1,915.42 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC added 5.32 points, or 0.12 percent, to 4,509.56.
