Stocks ended higher on Wall Street Friday but not enough to erase the market's losses from earlier in the week.

The S&P 500 added 0.8% but still posted a weekly loss after two weeks of gains. The benchmark index set a record high on Monday.

Trading was mostly subdued with earnings reporting season winding down for U.S. companies and relatively few economic reports.

Ross Stores fell 2.7% after issuing a full-year forecast that fell short of Wall Street's expectations, while Foot Locker jumped 7.3% after blowing past analysts' forecasts.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 1.26%.
