NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks ended a holiday-shortened session mostly flat on Friday as a massive decline in the energy sector offset strength in consumer names.

The Dow Jones industrial average (.DJI) rose 2.28 points, or 0.01 percent, to 17,830.03, the S&P 500 (.SPX) lost 4.98 points, or 0.24 percent, to 2,067.85 and the Nasdaq Composite (.IXIC) added 4.31 points, or 0.09 percent, to 4,791.63.

For the week, the Dow rose 0.1 percent, the S&P rose 0.2 percent and the Nasdaq rose 1.7 percent.

It was the sixth straight weekly gain for all three. For the month of November, the Dow was up 2.5 percent, the S&P was up 2.5 percent and the Nasdaq up 3.5 percent.
