(Newser) – US stocks gave up large gains and finished barely higher Friday, the AP reports. Banks and technology companies traded higher, while stocks that pay large dividends fell thanks to a jump in bond yields. The Dow Jones industrial average inched up 39.44 points, or 0.2%, at 18,138.38. The Standard & Poor's 500 added 0.43 points to 2,132.98. The Nasdaq composite rose 0.83 points to 5,214.16.
