U.S. stocks ended higher on Thursday in another day of broad swings as investors showed nervousness ahead of next week’s much-anticipated Federal Reserve meeting, but gains in Apple and biotech shares supported the day’s advance. Apple’s shares rose 2.2 percent to $112.57, rebounding from losses the day before when the iPhone and iPad maker unveiled new offerings. Biotech also boosted the market, with Gilead up 3.3 percent at $107.25, giving the second-biggest boost to the S&P 500 and Nasdaq after Apple.
