Wall Street eröffnet nach US-Daten erholt
New York, 26. Mai (Reuters) - Erholt hat der Aktienmarkt in New York am Freitag nach Veröffentlichung der US-Konjunkturdaten eröffnet. Der 30 Werte umfassende Dow-Jones-Index notierte nach rund 15 Handelsminuten 0,60 Prozent höher auf 10.386 Punkten. Auch bei den Hochtechnologiewerten ging es wieder bergauf. Der Nasdaq-Composite-Index stieg um 1,40 Prozent auf 3250 Zähler. Der marktbreite S&P-500-Index zog um 0,70 Prozent auf 1390 Punkte an.
Von insgesamt 2362 gehandelten Aktien zeigten sich 1143 mit Aufschlägen und 677 mit Abschlägen bei 542 unveränderten Papieren. Im frühen Geschäft wechselten rund 42 Millionen Aktien ihren Besitzer. Händler begründeten die Aufwärtsbewegung mit einer technischen Erholung und günstigen Konjunkturzahlen.

Das US-Handelsministerium hatte vor Börsenbeginn die Zahlen zur Entwicklung der Auftragseingänge für langlebige Güter im April veröffentlicht. Demnach ging der Auftragseingang um 6,4 Prozent zurück. Das ist der größte Rückgang seit Dezember 1991. Volkswirte hatten mit einem Anstieg der Auftragseingänge für langlebige Güter um 0,3 Prozent gerechnet.

Stocks Slip Shortly After the Opening

By Eric Wahlgren

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks slipped early on Friday as Wall Street reckoned the latest economic data did not show
the economy's growth is letting up enough to appease inflation-fighters at the Federal Reserve.

The U.S. Commerce Department reported that orders for big ticket items dropped in April while an increase had been
expected, but personal spending rose by a larger-than-forecast amount.

``There were some bright spots in these numbers, but today is getaway day and I wouldn't put too much credence into any
moves,'' said Peter Cardillo, director of research at Westfalia Investments. ``The question is will the bears get the grip later in
the session?''

The Dow Jones industrial average (.DJI) lost 14.05 points, or 0.14 percent, at 10,309.87 after dropping 211.43 points in the
previous session. The Dow's financial services components were weak with Citigroup Inc. (C.N) off 1 at 57-9/16 and J.P.
Morgan & Co. (JPM.N) down 1-9/16 at 127-7/16.

The Nasdaq composite (.IXIC) fell 15.26 points, or 0.48 percent, to 3,190.09, after falling 65.26 points on Thursday.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index (.SPX) eased 3.07 points, or 0.22 percent, at 1,378.45.

Personal spending, viewed as Friday's most looked-at figure by Wall Street since consumption is the main driver of the
economy, rose by 0.4 percent in April. Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected only a 0.3 percent rise.

The same report said personal income was up 0.7 percent compared with the 0.6 percent gain that was expected.

But suggesting some slowdown in activity was the surprising 6.4 percent drop in April durable goods orders, while economists

polled had forecast a 0.3 percent rise.

``What the numbers say is that there are faint glimmers of hope,'' said Hugh Johnson, chief investment officer at First Albany
Corp. ``But they are very faint and are not likely to be major market movers.''

Analysts said the fact that a brokerage house's bearish comments Thursday on one company -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
(GS.N) -- managed to set off a broad sell-off did not bode well for Friday's trading activity.

``That tells you something about the sickness this market is going under,'' said Bill Meehan, chief market analyst at Cantor
Fitzgerald in Darien, Conn. ``Volume is going to be very thin this afternoon.''

The stock market will be closed Monday for the U.S. Memorial Day holiday.

The bond market will close early Friday at 2 p.m. EDT (1800 GMT) ahead of the holiday weekend, which dealers said should
quickly rid trading desks of staff.

The 10-year U.S. Treasury note rose 1/32 with the yield matching Thursday's close of 6.40 percent. The 30-year bond was
unchanged with the yield flat with Thursday's close of 6.11 percent.

Among stocks in the news, Knight Ridder Inc. (KRI.N), the second-largest U.S. newspaper publisher, rose 1-13/16 to 53-5/8
after saying it was ``comfortable'' with fiscal 2000 earnings of $3.65 to $3.70 a share, which would be above Wall Street
expectations. Its stock finished at 51-13/16.

But office supplies retailer Office Depot Inc. (ODP.N) fell 2-13/16 to 7-5/8 after saying it expects to miss current Wall Street
earnings estimates by 4 to 6 cents per share.

On the New York Stock Exchange, advancers were edging out decliners 1075 to 1007 with 94 million shares changing hands.
There were 14 stocks hitting new highs and 34 hitting new lows. Reut10:26 05-26-00
