Thursday, January 31, 2013 5:51 PM

For the month, the Dow Jones rose 5.15%, the S&P 500 rose 4.80%, and the Nasdaq 4.44% higher. Consumer Non-Cyclical sector led the losses in the S&P 500 in trading today, ending the day 0.93% lower. Energy sector also fell sharply, ending the day 0.63% lower. Industrials ended the day 0.40% lower, while Conglomerates ended the day 0.33% lower. Utilities were the best performers in the S&P 500 today, ending the day 0.30% higher. Among the major movers in trading today were Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), which ended the day 0.83% lower at $30.98, Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), which ended the day 6.96% lower at $32.20, United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS), which ended the day 2.39% lower at $79.29, Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ: RIMM), which ended the day 5.81% lower at $12.98, JDS Uniphase Corp.

(NYSE: LVS), which ended the day 7.16% higher at $55.25. European markets ended mostly lower earlier in the day, with the EURO STOXX 50 Index closing 1.07% lower. Asian markets ended on a mixed note overnight, with the Nikkei 225 Index in Japan gaining 0.22%, and the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong falling 0.39%.
