The Dow Jones Industrial Average's tentative afternoon gain on Friday was being almost entirely supported by a rise in shares of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Boeing Co. Combined, Wal-Mart and Boeing's share gains were adding about 16 points to the blue-chip index , which was aiming for a close in positive territory for the day and week. However, Goldman Sach Group's 0.7% decline was helping to drag the gauge lower, cutting about 10 points from the price-weighted benchmark. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index was up less than a point at 2,357, and the Nasdaq Composite Index was trading flat at 5,881. Cautious trading Friday comes as disappointing March employment data and President Donald Trump's late Thursday airstrike against Syria weigh heavily on investor sentiment.

Dow's run to 20K took biggest boost from Goldman, Boeing and IBM shares
With the Dow Jones Industrial Average's first-ever peek above 20,000 in intraday trade Wednesday, Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s stock has been the biggest contributor as the Dow achieved its latest 1,000-point milestone.

Goldman's stock has run up $25.55 since Nov. 22, which added about 175 points to the Dow's price. The second-biggest contributor has been Boeing Co. shares , which have gained $18.33 to add about 126 points to the Dow. Next, the $15.06 gain in International Business Machines Corp.'s stock has contributed 103 points, while the $10.47 gain in Walt Disney Co.'s stock added 72 points. The biggest drag on the Dow since Nov. 22 has been Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s stock , which fell $3.13 to shave off about 21 points from the Dow.
