After-Hours Recap: April In Review, Friday Index Movers & After-Hours Runners


Stocks tumbled on Friday, driven by disappointing earnings in the tech and healthcare sectors. The S&P 500 and Dow managed to post some gains for the month of April; the Nasdaq, on the other hand, lost almost 2 percent of its value. Oil fell slightly as well, but still ended the month very strongly.

The S&P 500 Index delivered a 0.51 percent decline, with Stericycle Inc (NASDAQ: SRCL), Seagate Technology PLC (NASDAQ: STX) and Western Digital Corp (NASDAQ: WDC) having posted the largest decays.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.32 percent. Among the biggest decliners were Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT) and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC).

The Nasdaq 100 Index slipped 0.62 percent, partly driven by losses at Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) and Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MU).

A few stocks in these indexes posted large gains on Friday. Among them, investors can count Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ: MNST)., Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Freeport-McMoRan Inc (NYSE: FCX).
