Stock market news
“Stocks ended mixed on Friday as the three major indices struggled to find their footing after a week of volatility. The S&P 500 and Dow eked out gains during the session, but each still logged losses on the week.
The Nasdaq sank 0.6% Friday, as the index was pressured by an ongoing rout in some of their most heavily weighed big tech shares. Apple (AAPL) and Amazon shares each dropped more than 1%.
The losses brought the Nasdaq’s weekly decline to 4% – its worst since March. The S&P 500 sank more than 2% on the week, and the Dow fell more than 1.5%.
Better than expected quarterly earnings results temporarily send some individual, smaller tech names higher before the selloff broadened out and dragged them lower. Shares of Peloton (PTON) jumped more than 13% in pre-market trading before erasing gains during the regular session and closing 4% lower, after the connected fitness company topped fourth-quarter expectations and grew revenue 170% over last year, as demand for the firm’s at-home fitness equipment exploded during the pandemic. Oracle (ORCL) also reported a solid top-line beat, with demand for its cloud-computing services seeing strong uptake as more individuals work and go to school from home.”
