Blue-chip stocks in the U.K. dropped Friday, wrapping up the week with a fall in travel-related stocks after terrorists launched attacks in Spain.
NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks are slightly higher Friday after they wiped away an early loss. Energy companies are rising with oil prices and banks are up in tandem with bond yields and interest rates. Technology companies are up as well, but sporting goods makers and retailers continue to take sharp losses after investors did not like what they heard from Foot Locker and Hibbett Sports. Stocks are coming off their biggest loss in three months.
Europe finished Friday's session on a negative note, as the worst terror attack seen in Spain for more than 13 years added jitters to market sentiment.
