NUDGED: An encouraging manufacturing report helped turn the stock market higher Friday, reversing a morning drop. That gave it a slight gain for the week, even as a deadline for avoiding sweeping government spending cuts loomed.
OIL DROP: Oil and gas companies fell as crude oil prices sank to a low for the year. Halliburton and Peabody Energy were among the biggest losers in the S&P 500.
