The Dow ends with a 34-point gain. Crude oil tops $91. Gold and silver rise. Verizon will sell iPhones in February. Supervalu profit slumps on pressure from Wal-Mart and Target.
Earnings are up, but revenue is less than expected. European debt worries weigh on stocks. Nvidia settles a fight with Intel for $1.5 billion. Playboy will go private.
Large stocks left other sectors in the dust last week. Look for the reverse next week.
But stocks come back from a midday sell-off. December payrolls increased by 103,000 -- less than expected. Gold falls for the fourth day in a row. The dollar is up against the euro.
The Dow falls 26 ahead of Friday's jobs report. Target's and Macy's December sales are disappointing. AT&T and Verizon pull the Dow lower. Nvidia soars. A rising dollar hits oil.
The professionals return to Wall Street. Which way will they take the market?
