Stocks clung to modest gains on Wall Street, enough to edge the S&P 500 index to another record high and its sixth winning week in the last seven.

Weakness in some technology companies including Apple nudged the Nasdaq composite slightly lower. A pullback by travel-related companies also checked gains elsewhere in the market.

Intuitive Machines, the company that made the first U.S. lunar landing in more than 50 years, rose sharply.

On Friday:

The S&P 500 rose 1.77 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 5,088.80.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 62.42 points, or 0.2 percent, to 39,131.53.

The Nasdaq composite fell 44.80 points, or 0.3 percent, to 15,996.82.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies rose 2.85 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,016.69.

For the week:
