How did Wall Street Close Yesterday May 1, 2014? - by MarketWatch.

By Anora Mahmudova, MarketWatch 
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — The U.S. stock market ended Thursday’s choppy trade generally lower as traders stuck to the sidelines ahead of the key jobs report due Friday morning.
The benchmark S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average broke their three-day run as investors assessed a slew of mixed economic reports and earnings results. TheNasdaq Composite defied the trend and closed higher for the third straight day.
Consumer spending and ISM reports were better than expected, while jobless claims and construction spending missed forecasts.
The S&P 500 SPX -0.01%  ended the day less than a point lower at 1,883.68. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.13%  lost 21.97 points, or 0.1%, to 16,558.87, retreating from the record closing level reached on Wednesday. The Nasdaq CompositeCOMP +0.31%  added 12.9 points, or 0.3% to 4,127.45.

Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx Group, a global brokerage company based in New York, described the markets as ‘faith-based’.
“Markets are mirroring the economy and investors are putting a lot of faith in big improvements in the second half,” Colas said.

Spending, manufacturing improve

A hint of “spring snapback” was present in consumer spending data. Spending by American households accelerated in March, rising by the most since August 2009, the Commerce Department reported Thursday.
U.S. manufacturing companies expanded in April at the fastest pace since the end of last year, a survey from the Institute for Supply Management showed.
The number of people filing for state unemployment benefits rose for the second straight week, the Labor Department reported Thursday. Still, some economists dismissed it as seasonality.
“This report screams ‘Easter seasonal adjustments,’ so we are inclined to ignore it. What matters is where claims settle over the next few weeks, as the Easter hit fades,” wrote Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics.
Outlays for U.S. construction projects rose 0.2% in March to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $942.5 billion, led by private residential projects, the U.S. Commerce Department reported Thursday.

The jobs report, the most important measure of the U.S. economy, is scheduled to be released at 8:30 a.m. Eastern on Friday. Read: What to look for in April U.S. jobs report

Yelp rallies, Motorola falls

In earnings news, shares of Yelp Inc. YELP -0.34%  rallied 9.8% after the online-review company said after the closing bell on Wednesday that revenue jumped to $76.4 million in the first quarter, from $46.1 million.
Motorola Solutions Inc. MSI -1.46%  first-quarter net earnings came in slightly below expectations, as sales dropped. The company also projects revenue decline in the second quarter. Shares fell 1.5%.
Viacom Inc. VIAB +0.04%  reportedsecond-quarter profit ahead of expectations and said it would buy the U.K.’s Channel 5 Broadcasting Ltd. for 450 million pounds ($761 million). Shares slipped 1.7%.
ConocoPhillips COP +0.97%  said profitdropped in the first quarter, but revenue rose. Shares rose 1%.
Weight Watchers International Inc.WTW +19.75%  shares jumped 20% after the weight-loss company late Wednesday reported profit that topped expectations.
In other financial markets, trading in Asia and Europe was muted as most bourses were closed to observe the May Day holiday.
Gold prices fell GCM4 +0.12% , while oil prices CLM4 +0.45%  moved further below the $100-a-barrel level.
