LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Stocks ended up mixed after the unemployment rate fell last week.
The Dow and the S&P were seeking out gains on Friday after the Labor Department reported that the unemployment rate fell in October.
The monthly jobs report showed the economy added 214,000 jobs last month, the ninth straight month of growth but still less than what Wall Street was looking for.
For the week, the Dow ended up 1.1 percent. The S&P was up 0.7 percent, and the Nasdaq was flat.
Here in Arkansas, Entergy broke ground on Monday for a new 25,000 square foot, $23 million transmission operations center in Little Rock.
The center, located on Vimy Ridge Road, will be one of two in the Entergy's four-state service area.
The other will be located at Entergy's campus in Jackson, Mississippi.
