By DAMIAN J. TROISE and ALEX VEIGA AP Business Writers

Stocks fell broadly in afternoon trading on Wall Street Friday as the market heads for a feeble ending to an up-and-down week of trading. The S&P 500 index fell 1%.

The benchmark index is headed for its second straight weekly loss. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.6% and the Nasdaq fell 1.1%.

Roughly 80% of the stocks in the benchmark S&P 500 fell and every sector was in the red.

Technology and communications companies were the biggest drags on the market. Energy prices fell.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 1.37% from 1.33% a day earlier.
