Weekly Market Wrap: May 2, 2014
Friday, May 2, 4:22 PM ET

The eighteenth trading week of 2014 comes to a close with US markets slightly lower, to flat in mid-afternoon trading.

Names such as World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE:WWE), Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX), The Manitowoc Company (NYSE:MTW) and Acorda Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ACOR) are leading the way lower this afternoon.

Hi. I'm Sayoko Murase. Welcome to the 'Weekly Market Wrap' for May 2, 2014.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and the NASDAQ are all higher for the week.

Crude oil futures are lower this week, trading at $99.84 per barrel on Friday afternoon.

And Gold futures are also lower, trading at $1299.83 an ounce on Friday afternoon.

In economic news, real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States -- increased at an annual rate of 0.1 percent in the first quarter (that is, from the fourth quarter of 2013 to the first quarter of 2014), according to the "advance" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the fourth quarter, real GDP increased 2.6 percent. The Bureau emphasized that the first-quarter advance estimate released today is based on source data that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency. The "second" estimate for the first quarter, based on more complete data, will be released on May 29, 2014.

The increase in real GDP in the first quarter primarily reflected a positive contribution from personal consumption expenditures that was partly offset by negative contributions from exports, private inventory investment, nonresidential fixed investment, residential fixed investment, and state and local government spending. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, decreased.

In the week ending April 26, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 344,000, an increase of 14,000 from the previous week's revised level. The previous week's level was revised up by 1,000 from 329,000 to 330,000. The 4-week moving average was 320,000, an increase of 3,000 from the previous week's revised average. The previous week's average was revised up by 250 from 316,750 to 317,000.

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 288,000, and the unemployment rate fell by 0.4 percentage point to 6.3 percent in April, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. Employment gains were widespread, led by job growth in professional and business services, retail trade, food services and drinking places, and construction.
