On Friday, stocks for the most part closed higher, marking the

fourth consecutive week of overall gains

. Not even the

worst unemployment number in 25 years

could keep the market down.

Banks enjoyed a

late-day rally

on Friday after falling earlier in the day, including

Bank of America

(BAC) - Get Report

, which closed up 5% to $7.60;

Citigroup

(C) - Get Report

, which closed up 4% at $2.85; and

JPMorgan

(JPM) - Get Report

, up 4% at $29.28.

In commodity news, oil and gold were down on Friday, but

agricultural commodities such as wheat and cocoa were generally higher

.

With this in mind, we thought we'd take a look at some of the stocks making headlines on Friday, including

Pepsi

(PEP) - Get Report

and

Wal-Mart

(WMT) - Get Report

, and see what

Jim Cramer's had to say about them lately
