US stocks advanced on Friday, as earnings from Microsoft and Procter & Gamble and easing concerns over the possible spread of Ebola in the United States helped put the S&P on track to snap a four-week losing skid. Microsoft was up 2 percent at $45.91, after it reported higher-than-expected quarterly revenue while keeping its profit margins largely intact.

Earnings from Caterpillar and 3M drove Wall Street higher on Thursday but stocks pared gains in late trading after reports that a New York hospital was running Ebola tests on a healthcare worker. The day's advance put the S&P 500 at its highest level in two weeks as results from industrial bellwethers reassured investors that corporations can generate strong profits despite concerns about global growth.
Japanese shares rose to a two-week high on Friday as the weaker yen lifted exporters, while renewed fears about the spread of the Ebola virus in the United States bolstered Ebola-related stocks such as Fujifilm Holdings Corp. The Nikkei share average ended 1.0 percent higher to 15,291.64, the best closing level since October 10. For the week, the index gained 5.2 percent.
Britain's top share index fell on Friday but posted its strongest week since August, with concerns about the global economy and the spread of Ebola taking the steam out of a recent rally. The FTSE 100 closed down 0.5 percent at 6,388.73 points. It was still up 1.2 percent for the week, extending a rebound from 15-month lows hit last week.
Shares in luxury goods group Kering and chemicals company BASF fell on Friday after business updates, while new worries about the Ebola virus weighed on European stock markets. Kering fell 4.6 percent, making it the worst-performing stock on the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index after sales fell at its Gucci brand.
Sri Lankan stocks gained on Friday for the second straight session as investors bought banking shares, but the turnover was moderate as the market awaited cues from 2015 budget announcement. Sri Lanka in 2015 will trim its value added tax and reduce its budget deficit to the lowest level since 1977, President Mahinda Rajapaksa told parliament on Friday while presenting the 2015 budget.
Taiwan stocks fell on Friday, following cues from overseas markets amid nervousness on reports of the first diagnosed case of Ebola in the world's financial hub of New York. A physician with Doctors Without Borders who returned to New York City after treating Ebola victims in West Africa has tested positive for the virus, the New York Times said on Thursday.
