(Newser) – Stocks eked out some narrow gains on Wall Street, enough to give the S&P 500 index its second weekly gain in a row. The market shook off an early stumble Friday thanks largely to gains in health care stocks and makers of consumer products. The S&P 500 rose 2 points, or 0.1%, to 2,978, and it rose 1.8% for the week, per the AP. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 69 points, or 0.3%, to 26,797, and the Nasdaq slipped 13 points, or 0.2%, to 8,103. Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury fell to 1.55%.
