Stocks rose Friday, with Wall Street headed to a fourth week of gains ahead of the long holiday weekend.
Some of Friday's midday movers:
Stocks fell on Thursday, pulling the S&P 500 below 2,000, as concerns about Ukraine overtook upbeat reports on the economy and labor.
Stocks were little moved Wednesday as Wall Street caught its breath, a day after the S&P 500's first close above 2,000.
Stocks rose on Tuesday after a report had orders for durable goods jumping far more than expected in July.
Stocks rose on Monday as investors welcomed M&A and looked to the European Central Bank for further monetary easing moves.
