For the week, the Dow Jones fell 1.80%, the S&P 500 fell 2.10%, and the Nasdaq fell 1.94%. Telecom stocks led the gains in the S&P 500 on Friday, ending the day 0.94% higher. Consumer Non-Cyclical sector also rose sharply, ending the day 0.88% higher. Technology sector was the worst performer in the S&P 500, ending the day 0.79% lower. Among the major movers in trading on Friday were Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL), which ended the day 9.26% lower at $30.14, Zynga Inc. (NASDAQ: ZNGA), which ended the day 5.08% lower at $2.71, Theravance Inc. (NASDAQ: THRX), which ended the day 10.18% higher at $37.60, OSI Systems Inc.
