    SLM Corp. (SLM +6.5%) is among the day's top gainers after Barron’s says shares of the student loan provider could climb as high as $20 in the next 18 months. Investors aren't giving Sallie Mae enough credit for its large government-backed loan portfolio, which is “virtually risk-free,” Andrew Bary writes. There’s also a possibility that a big bank could come calling, he says.

    Market recap: Stock indexes ended mixed in directionless trading, and NYSE advancers finished roughly even with decliners. "Given the sharp decline late Thursday [and] substantial rise of the last few weeks, investors may be trigger-happy to lock in gains at any sign of selling," one strategist says. Among individual stocks, the top percentage gainers in the S&P were RadioShack (RSH +8.6%) and SLM (SLM +4.5%).
