Major indexes ended a wobbly day on Wall Street with mixed results Friday. The S&P 500 closed slightly lower to mark its first losing week in the last three.
Declines for several Big Tech stocks including Facebook and Amazon helped pull the index down even as other indexes rose.
Small-company stocks did far better than the rest of the market, as they have since the beginning of the year. Those companies would benefit the most from a pickup in the economy.
The S&P 500 fell 7.26 points, or 0.2%, to 3,906.71.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.98 point, less than 0.1%, to 31,494.32.
The Nasdaq rose 9.11 points, or 0.1%, to 13,874.46.
The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies rose 48.30 points, or 2.2%, to 2,266.69.
For the week:
The S&P 500 fell 28.12 points, or 0.7%.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 22.67 points, or 1%.
