U.S. Stocks End 'Down' Week on an 'Up' Note

Relateret indhold

By Matt Jarzemsky

NEW YORK--A rebound by banks and health-care shares helped push the blue chips higher--but not enough to help them avoid a losing week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 67.21 points, or 0.5%, to 12640.78, on Friday. The benchmark trimmed a weekly decline caused by Thursday's sharp selloff, which was fueled by a cascade of bearish global data.

J.P. Morgan Chase, up 1.4%, was among the Dow's biggest advancers. Bank of America, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo also gained, up 1.5%, 1.3% and 1.5%, respectively.

The Standard & Poor's 500-stock index tacked on 9.51 points, or 0.7%, to 1335.02. All 10 of the index's sectors traded higher, though consumer staples and utilities lagged behind. The Nasdaq Composite added 33.33 points, or 1.2%, to 2892.42.

Uri Landesman, president of New York hedge fund Platinum Partners, called it a "relief rally" for stocks--"a little bit of buying on the bad news."

Late Thursday, Moody's Investors Service downgraded numerous global banks, citing significant exposure to volatility and the risk of large losses from capital markets activities.

But analysts largely took a positive view, saying the decisions were on the whole slightly less negative than many investors had feared. Only one company, Credit Suisse Group, had its rating cut by three notches. Two others, Morgan Stanley and UBS, had faced three-notch reductions but were downgraded only two levels.

The immediate effect was to dispel concerns that had hung over the market since February. "It appears that a headwind has been removed," Keefe, Bruyette & Woods analyst David Konrad wrote in a note to clients.

The U.S.-listed shares of Credit Suisse rose 1.2%, and UBS's added 2.1%.

In Europe, markets were mostly lower, with the Stoxx Europe 600 falling 0.7%, as more downbeat economic data weighed on sentiment. June data showed Germany's Ifo index of business confidence fell more than expected. Benchmark indexes in the U.K., Germany and France all rose for the third week in a row.

Meanwhile, Spain's IBEX 35 index bucked the trend by rallying 1.5%, after an external audit said the country's banks will need to increase capital by up to 62 billion euros ($77.75 billion) to survive a worst-case scenario. That number was a lot lower than many had feared.

The European Central Bank said it would offer loans to euro-zone banks in exchange for a wider range of collateral, accepting securities such as car loans and certain mortgage-backed securities, in a move seen as an attempt to provide liquidity to Spanish banks.

Asian markets were broadly lower on the back of U.S. weakness Thursday, with Japan's Nikkei Stock Average losing 0.3% but rising 2.7% on the week, its third weekly gain in a row. Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index slumped 1.4%, down 1.2% on the week and six of the past seven.

Crude-oil futures added $1.56 a barrel, or 2%, to $79.76. Gold rose $1.50 a troy ounce, or 0.1%, to $1,566.

The dollar rose against the yen but lost ground to the euro.

In corporate news, Ryder System slid 13%, the biggest decline among the S&P 500 components. The truck-rental company lowered its second-quarter and full-year earnings outlooks, citing lower-than-expected demand.

Facebook rose 3.8%, extending its more-than-20% rally from its early June lows, which followed concerns about the social network's valuation and botched initial public offering.

Harvest Natural Resources soared 87% after the energy company agreed to sell its Venezuela assets to Indonesia's PT Pertamina for $752 million.

Darden Restaurants declined 0.7% after the operator of Olive Garden and Red Lobster projected continued weak growth for its major brands, citing expectations of a "frustratingly slow" economic recovery.

Associated Estates Realty dropped 2.1% after the real-estate investment trust said it planned a public offering of 5.5 million shares of its common stock.

Møller-Mærsks salg af Maersk Oil.Olie- og gasdivisionen sælges til franske Total for 7,45 mia. dollar, eller 47 mia. kr., og det var mere, end de fleste analytikere havde forudset.
