Stocks ended a wobbly day slightly lower on Wall Street as a weeklong rally fizzled out. The modest losses Friday came a day after the S&P 500 set a record closing high. On Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average also briefly traded above the all-time closing high it reached in October. The S&P 500 fell 3 points, or 0.1%, to 2,950, though it's up 7.2% so far in June. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 34 points, or 0.1%, to 26,719, and the Nasdaq dipped 19 points, or 0.2%, to 8,031, per the AP. Technology and industrial companies led the way lower: PayPal lost 2.2% and FedEx gave up 1.5%. The price of oil continued to climb and rose more than 9% for the week as tensions between the US and Iran increased.
