Stocks to Watch: Caterpillar, JetBlue and More ...
Stocks turned modestly lower after fluctuating in a narrow range earlier Friday as investors considered a surprisingly small jobs gain in January amid a slew of stronger economic reports out earlier this week.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 20 points on Friday, a day after the market closed moderately higher on Thursday, although the Dow ended at another 2 1/2-year high, after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke indicated the central bank would continue to stimulate the economy.
