RPT-US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Wall Street falls as oil climbs

NEW YORK, April 8 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks fell late on
Friday as a spike in oil prices revived worries that inflation
would derail the recovery, jolting a market that had been
treading water ahead of earnings.

The Dow Jones industrial average (.DJI: Quote, Profile, Research) was down 29.59
points, or 0.24 percent, at 12,379.90. The Standard & Poor’s
500 Index (.SPX: Quote, Profile, Research) was down 5.36 points, or 0.40 percent, at
1,328.15. The Nasdaq Composite Index (.IXIC: Quote, Profile, Research) was down 15.73
points, or 0.56 percent, at 2,780.41.

For the week, the Dow rose 0.03 percent while the S&P 500
and Nasdaq each lost 0.3 percent.
