How the major US stock indexes fared Thursday


Major U.S. indexes managed small gains Thursday, though not enough to prevent a losing week for the S&P 500 following three weeks of gains.

Industrial stocks led the way higher on strong company earnings. Financial and energy stocks fell. Pinterest and Zoom Video Communications soared in on their first day of trading.
