NEW YORK, Jan 11 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks ended higher on Wednesday after a day of choppy trading even as many investors fled drug stocks after President-elect Donald Trump said pharmaceutical companies were "getting away with murder" by charging high prices for drugs.

Based on the latest available data, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 96.32 points, or 0.49 percent, to 19,951.85, the S&P 500 gained 6.29 points, or 0.28 percent, to 2,275.19 and the Nasdaq Composite added 11.83 points, or 0.21 percent, to 5,563.65.
