US close: Stocks mixed amid rising new Covid-19 cases

(Sharecast News) - Wall Street stocks put on a mixed performance on Friday amid fears regarding a resurgence of Covid-19 cases across Europe.
At the close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 0.75% at 35,601.98, while the S&P 500 was 0.14% weaker at 4,697.96 and the Nasdaq Composite saw out the session 0.40% stronger at 16,057.44.

The Dow Jones closed 268.97 points lower on Friday, extending losses recorded in the previous session after the Labor Department revealed initial jobless claims were little changed in the week ended 13 November.

Covid-19 was firmly in focus on Friday after Austria announced a full national lockdown will start on Monday, with Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg stating it would last no more than 20 days but warning it will be a legal requirement to receive a vaccination from 1 February.

Several other European nations will impose restrictions amid rising cases, with Germany agreeing to introduce restrictions on unvaccinated citizens and the Czech government limiting access to a variety of services for those who haven't received a jab.

In the corporate space, Intuit shares were up after the group raised full-year revenue guidance and its quarterly earnings smashed estimates, while Nvidia was also in the green again thanks to its earnings beat earlier in the week.

Elsewhere, footwear retailer Foot Locker posted a solid set of third-quarter earnings on Friday, with quarterly profits coming to $158.0m in the three months ended 30 October, or $1.52 on a per share basis, beating analysts' estimates for EPS of $1.36.
