How the major stock indexes fared Friday

Stocks are closing at their lowest level so far in July on fresh fears that Europe's debt crisis will spread beyond Greece to much larger economies. Italy, Europe's third-largest economy, and Spain, its fourth-largest, could be sliding toward default.

The Dow Jones industrial average lost 151.44 points, or 1.2 percent, to close at 12,505.76.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 24.31, or 1.8 percent, to 1,319.49.

The Nasdaq composite fell 57.19, or 2 percent, to 2,802.62.

For the year to date:

The Dow is up 928.25, or 8 percent.

The S&P is up 61.85, or 4.9 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 149.75, or 5.6 percent.
