Stocks drifted to a mixed finish on Wall Street as losses for banks and consumer products makers outweighed gains elsewhere in the market, the AP reports. A small loss for the S&P 500 Thursday broke a four-day winning streak for the benchmark index. The market started lower after the government reported a surprise drop in retail sales in December, then clawed back much of those losses and drifted the rest of the day. Coca-Cola dropped 8.4% after saying the strong dollar could slow its sales. Cisco rose 1.9% after announcing a big stock buyback. The S&P 500 fell 7 points, or 0.3%, to 2,745. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 103 points, or 0.4%, to 25,439. The Nasdaq edged up 6 points, or 0.1%, to 7,426. (Read more stock market stories.)
