Stocks Finish Mixed in Slow Session
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Stocks ran in place Friday, lacking direction in the absence of any new economic news. Although earnings reports continued to beat expectations, investors saw little reason to act during the sluggish session.
The major indices locked in marginal weekly gains, marking the third consecutive week that the Dow Jones Industrial Average has advanced. During Friday's session, the Dow lost 14 points, or 0.1%, to 11,133 but gained 0.6% on the week. The S&P 500 closed 3 points higher at 1183 and also saw a weekly increase of 0.6%. Meanwhile, strength across the tech sector helped the Nasdaq finish 20 points, or 0.8% higher at 2479 with a weekly gain of 0.4%.
