Stocks Stumble as Investors Balk at Banks

Stocks in this article: INTC JPM BAC

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Stocks closed lower Friday, as investors didn't like what JPMorgan Chase's (JPM) rising credit costs may mean for the rest of the financial sector as it heads into earnings season.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 101 points, or 0.9% to 10,610. The S&P 500 was dow 12 points, or 1.1%, to 1136, and the Nasdaq shed 29 points, or 1.2%, to 2288.

Each of the major averages also lost ground for the week. The Dow fell about 0.1%, while the S&P 500 declined by 0.8%. The Nasdaq tumbled 1.3% since last Friday.

"I'm seeing a lot of market tiredness today," said Andrew Neale, portfolio manager for wealth management and advisory firm Fogel Neale Partners. "We've had a tremendous run over the past few weeks; there have been a lot of new highs made; and now we're seeing a bit of a correction.

"Next week, we expect the market to sell off a little more," Neale said, adding that the market could correct several percentage points more. "We were a little cautious heading into this week, and it looks like that's played out."

Although JPMorgan's fourth-quarter earnings rose to $3.3 billion, or 74 cents a share, beating analysts' expectations for a profit of 61 cents a share, revenue of $25.2 billion missed estimates for $27.02 billion. The company added $1.9 billion to reserves for consumer loan losses and said it wrote off loans at a 9.3% annualized rate during the fourth quarter.
