NEW YORK, Jan 10 (Reuters) - The S&P 500 ended slightly
higher on Friday, led by gains in defensive names after a
weaker-than-expected payrolls report raised new questions about
both the strength of the economy and the aggressiveness of the
Federal Reserve's stimulus.
Based on the latest available data, the Dow Jones industrial
average fell 7.71 points or 0.05 percent, to end
unofficially at 16,437.05. The S&P 500 gained 4.24 points
or 0.23 percent, to close unofficially at 1,842.37. The Nasdaq
Composite added 18.471 points or 0.44 percent, to close
unofficially at 4,174.665.
