A sea of red engulfed the U.S. stock market Friday as non-farm payrolls data signaled continued strength in the labor market, weakening the case for the Federal Reserve to start cutting interest rates.
Decliners outnumbered gainers about 2.5-1, with utilities, materials, real estate leading losses. Financials advanced.   The tech-heavy $Nasdaq Composite Index(.IXIC.US)$ declined 0.2% to 17133.126, while the $S&P 500 Index(.SPX.US)$ slipped 0.1% to 5346.99. The $Dow Jones Industrial Average(.DJI.US)$ lost 0.2% to 38798.99.
$Apple(AAPL.US)$, which lost its place as the second-most valuable company to $NVIDIA(NVDA.US)$ earlier this week, regained that title just a day later and continued to maintain its dominance. Apple ended the day 1.2% higher, the only member of the Magnificent Seven to post a gain Friday.
Payrolls gained 272,000 in May, higher than the average monthly increase of 232,000 over the prior 12 months, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said in a report Friday morning. That's higher than the 190,000 additional jobs expected by economists polled by Wall Street Journal.
Average hourly earnings for all employees on private non-farm payrolls rose 0.4% to $34.91. Wage pressures, spurred by higher demand for labor has helped fan inflation, prompting the Fed to start raising interest rates in early 2022. While rates have stalled at a range of 5.25% to 5.55% since August, they remain at the highest since 2007.
