Shares of power-plant operators rose after the yield on the 10-Year Treasury note retreated from a four-year high. Joe Kinahan, chief market strategist at brokerage TD Ameritrade, said market jitters about the long-anticipated rise in rates were irrational because the increase isn't likely to have a major effect on corporate activity. Should the rate rise above 3% from its current level around 2.9%, however, it would bear watching, said Mr. Kinahan.
