US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-S&P 500 slips as interest rate, trade concerns weigh

NEW YORK, Oct 19 (Reuters) - The benchmark S&P 500 stock index slipped on Friday as strong earnings from Procter & Gamble Co were offset by ongoing concerns about rising interest rates and geopolitical tensions denting U.S. economic growth.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 64.89 points, or 0.26 percent, to 25,444.34, the S&P 500 lost 1 point, or 0.04 percent, to 2,767.78 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 36.11 points, or 0.48 percent, to 7,449.03. (Reporting by April Joyner Editing by James Dalgleish)
