By MARLEY JAYNEW YORK (AP) — Major U.S. stock indexes are slightly lower Friday as investors take a pause following a steady climb since last week's presidential election. Drugmakers and other health care companies are taking the largest losses. Small-company stocks are at record highs and still rising. Bond yields are rising further and the dollar also continues to climb. KEEPING SCORE: The Dow Jones industrial average slid 18 points, or 0.1 percent, to 18,886 as of 3:23 p.m. Eastern time. The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 3 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,183. The Nasdaq composite touched a record high, but turned lower and gave up 8 points, or 0.2 percent, to 5,325. Despite those losses, stocks are substantially higher this week after their big gains the week before. SMALL CAPS GO BIG: Small-company stocks continued to gain and the Russell 2000 index bucked the overall downward trend in the market. That index has risen for 11 days in a row, a streak that dates to before the election. It's up 13 percent over that time and is trading at all-time highs. Among small-company stocks, mortgage lending service company LendingTree added $6.85, or 7.3 percent, to $100.05 and coal miner Cloud Peak Energy rose 80 cents, or 16.1 percent, to $5.80. THE QUOTE: "Some of the proposals that Trump has promoted, specifically deregulation and also some of his trade proposals, are better for small companies than potentially they are for large ones," said Katie Nixon, chief investment officer for Northern Trust. QUEASY FEELING: Losses for drug companies weighed down health care stocks. Botox maker Allergan retreated $6.53, or 3.3 percent, to $193.45 and biotech giant Amgen fell $1.80, or 1.2 percent, to $145.57. Hepatitis C drugmaker Gilead Sciences shed 97 cents, or 1.3 percent, to $74.61. HOME GOODS GO BAD: Companies that sell common household products are also moving lower. Procter & Gamble gave up 87 cents, or 1.1 percent, to $82.20 and drugstore operator Walgreens Boots Alliance slumped 65 cents to $83.33.
