Stocks Waver as Bond Yields, Oil Drop

U.S. stocks were mixed Friday, and investors piled into the safety of the dollar and government bonds after fresh Covid-19 restrictions in Europe clouded prospects for the global economic recovery. 

The S&P 500 was up 0.1% after closing at an all-time high Thursday. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite, which also hit a record Thursday, climbed 0.7%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.5%.
