    The Dow tumbled on Friday after a warning by computer maker Dell that companies worldwide are cutting back on technology spending spooked the tech sector.

  • Stocks declined Friday as Dell shook up techs and Gustav rattled the market. But, as the summer came to a close, some analysts are seeing a silver lining in the clouds.

  • For the week and month ending Friday, August 29, 2008,  the major U.S. Indices ended slightly lower for the week but up for the month.  The markets had a volatile week, sinking first on housing price drops and an up-tick in oil prices, then rallying on better-than-expected GDP numbers, and finally falling to end the week on worse-than-expected personal income and spending data.  The Dow hit a 200+ point rally on Thursday, its largest one day gain since 8/8.  The NASDAQ led the indices to the downside this week, down nearly 2%.  For the August close, the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P all finished up 1.5% or more, marking the best monthly gain since April for the Dow & S&P, and best month for the Nasdaq since May.

  • The Dow and S&P were down slightly this week, but there was a lot of good news: oil doesn't rally despite Gustav, Russia; economic news more positive; financials stabilize; dollar maintains strength. The bad news is what could be called the tech problem.

  • The market rallies on Friday with the Dow, NASDAQ and S&P all up 1% or more, on light volume, but Friday's gains are not enough to boost the market's weekly performance out of negative territory.  Energy stocks dominate.

  • Stocks declined Friday after weak results from Dell and a jump in oil prices.

  • Markets have headed lower late in the morning and into the afternoon, primarily on the Dell and Gustav news. Tech stocks have been struggling all day.
