NEW YORK – Stocks had their worst day of the year Friday after Greece hit a roadblock on its way to a critical bailout.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 89.23 points, or 0.7 percent, at 12,801.23. The broader Standard & Poor's 500 finished down 9.31 points to 1,342.64. It was the first losing week for S&P this year.
