Stocks pared losses but still closed lower on Friday to end an ugly week on a down note, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average booking its biggest monthly drop since March as investors reacted to rising COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and Europe.

The Dow fell around 157 points, or 0.6%, to end near 26,502, according to preliminary figures, while the S&P 500 lost around 40 points, or 1.2%, to finish near 3,270 and the Nasdaq Composite gave up arou.

Square Inc. shares are off 9% in Friday trading after a Wall Street Journal report said that the company was in talks with Credit Karma Inc. about acquiring the company's tax-preparation business. For Credit Karma, the move would be an attempt to stave off antitrust concerns as the company is in the process of merging with Intuit Inc. , which offers TurboTax, the WSJ report said.
