How major US stock indexes fared Friday

February 01, 2019 - 1:51 PM

Major U.S. stock indexes closed mostly higher Friday after an up-and-down day of trading on Wall Street.

The tiny gains, which extended the S&P 500's winning streak to a third day, came as investors applauded the latest burst of hiring by U.S. employers. That enthusiasm was tempered by a disappointing revenue outlook from Amazon.

On Friday:

The S&P 500 index rose 2.43 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 2,706.53.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 64.22 points, or 0.3 per cent, to 25,063.89.

The Nasdaq composite dropped 17.87 points, or 0.2 per cent, to 7,263.87.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies picked up 2.64 points, or 0.2 per cent, to 1,502.05.

For the week:

The S&P 500 gained 41.77 points, or 1.6 per cent.

The Dow rose 326.69 points, or 1.3 per cent.

The Nasdaq added 99.01 points, or 1.4 per cent.

The Russell 2000 picked up 19.20 points, or 1.3 per cent.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is up 199.68 points, or 8 per cent.

The Dow is up 1,736.43 points, or 7.4 per cent.

The Nasdaq is up 628.59 points, or 9.5 per cent.

The Russell 2000 is up 153.50 points, or 11.4 per cent.
