How the Dow Jones industrial average fared on Friday

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks skidded Friday in a wave of selling that wiped out most of the market’s gains from earlier this week. A drop in oil prices took energy companies sharply lower. Investors were also troubled by a poll showing Britain may be more likely to leave the European Union.

The Nasdaq composite slid 64.07 points, or 1.3 percent, to 4,894.55.

For the week:

The Dow rose 58.28 points, or 0.3 percent.

The S&P 500 dipped 3.06 points, or 0.1 percent.
