How major US stock indexes fared Friday
Stocks closed mostly lower on Wall Street Friday following a weak jobs report, but gains for a handful of Big Tech companies allowed the Nasdaq composite to sneak in another record high.
The Dow ended the week lower but other major indexes posted weekly gains. The weakness Friday came after the Labor Department reported that U.S. employers created far fewer jobs than expected last month. Travel companies fell. Cruise operators Carnival Corp. and Royal Caribbean each lost 4%.
The S&P 500 fell 1.52 points, less than 0.1%, to 4,535.43.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 74.73 points, or 0.2%, to 35,369.09.
The Nasdaq rose 32.34 points, or 0.2%, to 15,363.52.
The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 11.97 points, or 0.5%, to 2,292.05.
