How major US stock indexes fared Friday

February 08, 2019 - 2:01 PM

Major stock indexes ended unevenly Friday after a late-day recovery erased most of the market's early losses.

The burst of buying nudged the S&P 500 to its second weekly gain in a row. Gains in technology and consumer goods companies outweighed losses in financial stocks and retailers as investors continued to size up the latest batch of corporate quarterly snapshots.

On Friday:

The S&P 500 rose 1.83 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 2,707.88.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 63.20 points, or 0.3 per cent, to 25,106.33.

The Nasdaq composite added 9.85 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 7,298.20.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies picked up 0.77 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 1,506.39.

For the week:

The S&P 500 gained 1.35 points, or 0.1 per cent.

The Dow rose 42.44 points, or 0.2 per cent.

The Nasdaq added 34.33 points, or 0.5 per cent.

The Russell 2000 picked up 4.34 points, or 0.3 per cent.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is up 201.03 points, or 8 per cent.

The Dow is up 1,778.87 points, or 7.6 per cent.

The Nasdaq is up 662.92 points, or 10 per cent.

The Russell 2000 is up 157.84 points, or 11.7 per cent.
