Stocks narrowly miss having worst week in a year

By DANIEL WAGNER - AP Business Writers,DAVID K. RANDALL - AP Business Writers | AP – 37 mins ago, 15 July 2011

A late rally Friday prevented the stock market from having its worst week in nearly a year.

Investors seemed to largely ignore the ongoing debate in Washington over raising the country's borrowing limit. Troubling questions over Europe's financial health and manufacturing in the U.S. weighed down stock prices for much of the day, overwhelming a very strong earnings report from Google Inc.

Google jumped nearly 13 percent, the most of any stock in the Standard and Poor's 500 index, after the company said its revenue hit a record last quarter. Google's earnings pushed tech stocks in the S&P index broadly higher. Microsoft Corp. and Cisco Systems Inc. each gained 1 percent.

Worries about Europe and weak factory output in the U.S. have kept traders' expectations and stock prices relatively low since early this spring, said Ryan Detrick, senior technical strategist Schaeffer's Investment Research. If corporate earnings remain strong and Europe stabilizes, he said, stocks might rally in the second half of the year. That happened last year, after fears about Europe held the stock market back all summer.

"With all the talk about European debt and the U.S. issues, the fact that earnings are coming in pretty strong is a good sign," Detrick said. "Once those issues work their way through the system, long-term growth is going to come from earnings."
