    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%).
