Down for the Day, Up for the Week

( At 5:50 p.m. EDT)

The Dow Jones Industrial Average pulled back in the final session of the week, but the index still managed to tack on 54.40 points, or a little more than 0.7%, in the past five days. That's the first time the industrials have climbed in consecutive weeks since last spring.

On Friday, only six of the 30 components rose, and that left the Dow lower by 122.42 points, or 1.7%, at 7278.38.

The best percentage gainer was General Motors ( GM), up 10.8% at $3.18. Johnson & Johnson ( JNJ) came in second with a 3.2% increase to $51.67.

Most financial stocks were sluggish, though Citigroup ( C) managed to tack on 2 cents to $2.62. Bank of America ( BAC) had the steepest fall, giving back 10.7% to $6.19. JPMorgan Chase ( JPM) lost 7.2% to $23.15, and American Express ( JPM) slid 6.2% to $12.26.

Because of the way the Dow is weighted, the biggest drag was actually the oil companies, Exxon Mobil and Chevron ( CVX), who together accounted for roughly 37 points of the overall decrease.

Since hitting the 12-year low of 6547.05 on March 9, the Dow has rallied 11.2%, and so far this month, it's up almost 3.1%. Still on track for its first winning month of 2009, but a lot can happen in a short period of time. Updated from 12:05 p.m. EDT

Sellers Pressing the Issue

( At 1:50 p.m. EDT)

Starting to see a little selling as the afternoon progresses, and the Dow was recently at its session low, off 96 points at 7305.

A few more stocks have been added to the decliners' column, and now 19 of the 30 index components are in the red. Bank of America ( BAC) and GE ( GE) remain the leaders on the downside. BofA was losing 10.4% at $6.21, and GE was decreasing 8% to $9.32.
