Stocks closed broadly lower Friday, extending the market's modest losses from a day earlier. A slump in big technology stocks, consumer goods and health care companies weighed on the market. Banks eked out gains, getting a boost from rising bond yields.

The Dow Jones industrial average slid 201.95 points, or 0.8 percent, to 24,462.94.

The Nasdaq composite lost 91.93 points, or 1.3 percent, to 7,146.13.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks gave up 9.69 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,564.12.

For the week:

The S&P 500 is up 13.84 points, or 0.5 percent.
