Stocks were little changed Friday as a slowdown in retail sales and profit warnings from Lucent Technologies Inc. and Tyco International Ltd. kept investors from building on earlier gains. The major indexes finished the week with modest gains.


The Dow lost 2.49, or 0.02 percent, to 10,959.87. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index finished up 1.55, or 0.1 percent, at 1,287.61. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 0.35, or 0.02 percent, to 2,317.04.
