Market recap: Stocks reversed their two-day slide but all three major averages still logged their worst weekly drop this year. The Dow was held down by notable weakness from IBM, McDonald's and GE - -8.3%, -1.9% and -4% respectively - after earnings results; IBM surrendered all its YTD gains. Google and Microsoft helped boost techs. Gold and silver prices continued to stabilize but ended the week with big losses.
