How major US stock indexes fared Friday

Stocks closed broadly lower Friday as confirmed new coronavirus infections in the U.S. hit an all-time high, leading Texas and Florida to roll back the reopening of their economies. The developments undercut Wall Street's hopes that the reopening of businesses would deliver a relatively swift economic recovery.

The sell-off capped a choppy week of trading that erased the S&P 500's gains for the month. Technology, communications and financial stocks accounted for a big slice of the losses. Bond yields were mixed.

On Friday: The S&P 500 fell 74.71 points, or 2.4%, to 3,009.05. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 730.05 points, or 2.8%, to 25,015.55. The Nasdaq composite dropped 259.78 points, or 2.6%, to 9,757.22.

The Russell 2000 index of small company stocks slumped 34.53 points, or 2.4%, to 1,378.78. For the week: The S&P 500 fell 88.69 points, or 2.9%. The Dow dropped 855.91 points, or 3.3%. The Nasdaq slid 188.91 points, or 1.9%

The Russell 2000 lost 39.85 points, or 2.8%. For the year: The S&P 500 is down 221.73 points, 6.9%. The Dow is down 3,522.89 points, or 12.3%. The Nasdaq is up 784.61 points, or 8.7%. The Russell 2000 is down 289.69 points, or 17.4%.
