US: S&P, Nasdaq up on strong tech earnings, GDP data

[NEW YORK] The S&P and the Nasdaq opened higher on Friday as strong earnings from technology giants and a better-than-expected quarterly gross domestic product (GDP) growth lifted investor sentiment. The Dow was little changed, weighed down by Chevron.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 25.2 points, or 0.11 per cent, to 23,375.66. The S&P 500 gained 8.13 points, or 0.31 per cent, to 2,568.53. The Nasdaq Composite added 75.03 points, or 1.14 per cent, to 6,631.80.
