* Market wrap: Immovable Japan, dropping Apple weigh on U.S. stocks. U.S. stock markets lost steam towards the end of last week, as investors reacted to weak first-quarter U.S. GDP numbers, a major earnings miss at Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), and a decision by the Bank of Japan not to increase monetary stimulus. The S&P 500 Composite dropped off the table late in the week, posting a -1.3% loss on the week overall, edging down 0.3% on the month. In Canada, the S&P/TSX Composite Index played the contrarian, gaining 0.6% on the week for a respectable 3.4% advance on the month. Commodity prices rallied, led by a resurgent materials sector piggybacking on the rising price of crude oil, which closed Friday at US$46 per barrel, for a weekly advance of 5.0% and a monthly gain of 20.4%.
