The stock market capped a quiet week of trading on a down note on Friday. Major indexes fell from the start as oil drillers and other energy-related companies followed oil prices lower. Stocks spent much of the rest of the day drifting between losses and gains as investors considered a mixed bag corporate earnings and a slight increase in inflation.

On Friday:

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 53.72 points, or 0.3 percent, to 18,232.02.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index closed down 4.76 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,126.06.

The Nasdaq composite edged down 1.43 points to 5,089.36.
