NEW YORK (AP) - There are no major economic reports expected Friday, but investors can chew over corporate financial results issued after markets closed yesterday.
A weak set of economic data released Thursday sent stocks lower on Wall Street. The government said more people applied for unemployment benefits last week, while a survey of European business executives suggested the continent's economy continues to slow.
The Dow lost 47 points to close at 13,881, while the S&P fell more than nine points to 1,502, and the Nasdaq lost 33 to 3,131.
