U.S. stocks opened marginally higher Friday and the main indexes were on track to post solid weekly gains. Friday's modest opening gains follow days of global equity-market rallies, in part fueled by a sharp rebound in commodity prices. The S&P 500 opened 2 points, or 0.1%, higher at 2,015 and was on track to post its biggest weekly gain this year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 29 points, or 0.2% to 17,082.
