Stocks tanking to end the week as jobs Friday doesn't give the market boost. We break down all the late-day trading action, as well as the week that was with Yahoo Finance columnist Rick Newman, Cathie Wood of Ark Invest, and Michael Regan, columnist for Bloomberg Gadfly.

Winners and losers

Let's take a look at some of today's winners and losers. Stocks ending the week on a bad note include LinkedIn, beaten down after earnings. It's the same story for Lionsgate and Hanesbrands—the underwear and activewear maker sliding after issuing a weak sales outlook for 2016.

Stocks that pushed higher in Friday's session include the insurer Aon, Tyson Foods on earnings, and Symantec—the security and backup solutions firm popping after reporting an earnings and revenue beat, plus Symantec revealed strategic investments from Silver Lake Partners and activist hedge fund Elliott Management.

Looking Ahead

And now a look ahead at what will be making headlines on Monday. Earnings season continues next week with big reports from media giant 21st Century Fox, toymaker Hasbro on its holiday quarter, and review site Yelp.

Monday also marks the beginning of the new year in China. Its financial markets will be closed on Monday in celebration of the new year, and many businesses and factories will be idle for nearly 3 weeks as workers head home in what's called the largest annual human migration on Earth. 

And in case you forgot, it's Super Bowl weekend. On Monday, the winning coach of Super Bowl 50 - either Ron Rivera of the Carolina Panthers or Gary Kubiak of the Denver Broncos - will hold a press conference where he will receive the special gold-plated '50' edition of the Vince Lombardi trophy.
