After-Hours Recap: Indexes Up Friday, But Still Down For The Week

Share:

After posting some losses in the morning, U.S. stock indexes rebounded on Friday afternoon, after investors had time to digest April’s jobs data.

Among the day’s biggest gainers were materials, industrials and consumer discretionary companies, along with oil and gold, which were up roughly 0.62 percent and 1.44 percent, respectively. On the other hand, drugmakers, airlines and software stocks plunged.

The S&P 500 Index delivered a 0.32 percent surge, to end the week down 0.39 percent. The largest returns on Friday were posted by Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), PerkinElmer, Inc. (NYSE: PKI) and Transocean LTD (NYSE: RIG).

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.45 percent, closing the week down 0.19 percent. Among the biggest winners were Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT) and Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO).

Finally, the Nasdaq 100 Index rose 0.48 percent, taking the weeks losses to 0.26 percent. Friday’s surge was partly driven by spikes in Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) and DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ: DISH).

Opposite was the case of Endo International plc - Ordinary Shares (NASDAQ: ENDP), which lost 39.19 percent during the day despite a first quarter earnings and revenue beat. What was driving the stock down was the management’s guidance for 2016. The company now expects full-year non-GAAP EPS of $4.50 to $4.80 on revenues of $3.87 billion to $4.03 billion, down from a previous guidance of $5.85 to $6.20 and $4.32 billion to $4.52 billion.
