NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks showed signs of stabilizing on Thursday, but gains were kept in check by conflicting comments on trade talks from President Donald Trump and Beijing that reinforced concerns about a potentially lengthy battle harming global growth.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 44.15 points, or 0.18%, to 25,170.56, the S&P 500 gained 5.86 points, or 0.21%, to 2,788.88 and the Nasdaq Composite added 20.41 points, or 0.27%, to 7,567.72.
