Shares of department stores sank again Friday, hurt by more evidence that shoppers are turning away from them. A drop in Treasury yields also put pressure on bank stocks, and the weakness helped pull the Standard & Poor’s 500 index to its first weekly loss in the last four.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 3.54 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,390.90.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 22.81 points, or 0.1 percent, to 20,896.61.
The Nasdaq composite rose 5.27 points, or 0.1 percent, to 6,121.23.
The Russell 2000 index of small-company stocks lost 7.43 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,382.77.
For the week:
The S&P 500 is down 8.39 points, or 0.3 percent.
The Dow is down 110.33 points, or 0.5 percent.
The Nasdaq is up 20.47 points, or 0.3 percent.
The Russell 2000 is down 14.23 points, or 1 percent.
For the year:
The S&P 500 is up 152.07 points, or 6.8 percent.
The Dow is up 1,134.01 points, or 5.7 percent.
