US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Wall St opens higher after jobs data

Sept 1 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks opened higher on Friday after data showed job growth slowed more than expected in August and wage growth remained anemic, which could make the Federal Reserve cautious about raising interest rates again this year.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 35.26 points, or 0.16 percent, to 21,983.36. The S&P 500 gained 4.77 points, or 0.19 percent, to 2,476.42. The Nasdaq Composite added 14.93 points, or 0.23 percent, to 6,443.59. (Reporting by Sruthi Shankar in Bengaluru; Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
