The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 65 points, or 0.5%, to close at 13,029 after rising to as high as 13,082 earlier Friday. The S&P 500 added 1 point, or 0.1%, at 1378. The Nasdaq finished in the red, down 7 points or 0.2% at 3000, with shares of Apple ( AAPL) hitting a one-month low. The Dow gained 1.4% this week, while the S&P 500 edged up 0.6% and the Nasdaq lost 0.6%. Stocks began Friday on a strong note, as investors cheered strong quarterly reports from Dow companies on Thursday and Friday, and good economic data out of Europe. Markets lost steam by the end of the session as investors looked ahead to the earnings reports scheduled for next week. "Next week there's just a tremendous number of earnings coming out and it's more of a reflection of what we've seen so far, which has been very mediocre earnings with not a lot of positive guidance going forward," says Jeffrey Sica, president and chief investment officer of SICA Wealth Management.
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Blue-chip stocks posted their first weekly gain in three as a wave of strong earnings reports offset worries about Europe and the global economy.
