The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday afternoon was on track for its best point and percentage gain in more than a year, as investors bought a recent dip in stocks that has been at least partly precipitated by fears of the COVID omicron variant and worries about Federal Reserve policy. Monday's gains saw the Dow /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA -0.32% rise 2.1%, or 713 points, which would mark the sharpest percentage gain for the 30-stock index since Nov. 9, 2020 when it gained 834 points, or 2.95%, FactSet data show. The session's gain was being powered primarily by advances in UnitedHealth Group Inc. /zigman2/quotes/210453738/composite UNH +0.34% , Goldman Sachs Group Inc. /zigman2/quotes/209237603/composite GS -1.17% , Home Depot /zigman2/quotes/208081807/composite HD -0.75% and Visa Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203660239/composite V +0.34% . Only shares of Nike Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203439053/composite NKE -0.18% , salesforce.com /zigman2/quotes/200515854/composite CRM +0.90% and Verizon Communications Inc. /zigman2/quotes/204980236/composite VZ -0.04% were trading in negative territory among the Dow's components in afternoon trade.
