A bearish but relatively flat week ends Thursday with a handful of earning releases. Disappointing numbers from several major tech names combined with international worries sent shares sharply lower on the session. Positive news of Bernanke being reconfirmed failed to generate bullish sentiment. The DJIA fell 115.70, the Nasdaq dropped 42.41, and the S&P 500 gave back 12.97.
