The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) The U.S. stock market is ending the week with meager gains, sending major indexes further into record territory.

The Labor Department said Friday that U.S. employers added 214,000 jobs in October. That was a solid number but still was less than what economists were looking for.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index edged up a fraction of a point to 2,031.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 19 points, or 0.1 percent, to 17,573.

The Nasdaq composite fell six points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,632.

Humana sank 7 percent after the health insurer reported earnings that didn't meet analysts' forecasts.

Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.30 percent.
