The Nasdaq was the clear winner on markets Friday. The tech-heavy index spiked into record territory as Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT) and Google (GOOGL) rallied after reporting earnings. Starbucks (SBUX) was also helping to boost the Nasdaq. The coffee chain generated sales nearly 20% higher than a year earlier as store traffic increased worldwide. Juniper Networks (JNPR) was the second-best performer on the S&P 500, trailing Amazon. Shares rose as the company beat estimates in its first quarter and provided an upbeat outlook for its current quarter. Xerox (XRX) was the worst performer on the S&P 500.
