The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials rose .99 to 1,288.87 in the first hour. But losers held a slight lead over gainers in the early tally of New York Stock Exchange-listed issues. Heading into a three-day weekend, the market had plenty of favorable economic news going for it. The Labor Department reported this morning that the producer price index of finished goods was unchanged in January after posting increases of 0.3 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December. The latest figure provided support for hopes that inflation would remain at low levels in the months ahead despite continued growth of the economy. Separately, the Federal Reserve Board said that industrial production rose a seasonally adjusted 0.4 percent last month. Bond prices rose and interest rates fell in the credit markets Thursday. But analysts said uncertainty persisted about the longer-term outlook for interest rates and the Fed’s credit policy. The central bank issued revised statistics late Thursday that showed faster growth in the money supply last year than had previously been reported. Furthermore, brokers said many traders opted to cash in some profits from the market’s recent rally after it failed Wednesday and again Thursday to hold above the 1,300 level in the Dow Jones industrial average. Among actively traded blue chips, International Business Machines rose % to 132Mi.
