Wall St subdued after soft jobs data; Big Tech bounces

* Nonfarm payrolls rise by 199,000 in December

* GameStop jumps after report of foray into NFT, crypto markets

* Indexes: Dow -0.06%, S&P -0.01%, Nasdaq +0.07%

Jan 7 (Reuters) - Wall Street's main indexes were muted on Friday after data pointed to weaker-than-expected job growth last month, while banking shares extended gains and battered technology stocks bounced from sharp declines suffered this week.

Seven of the 11 major S&P sectors advanced in early trading. Defensive sectors were the sole losers, while energy, financials and industrials outperformed. The banking index added 0.9%.

Beaten-down megacaps including Apple Inc, Microsoft Corp, Meta Platforms Inc, Inc and Tesla Inc rose between 0.5% and 0.9%, lifting the S&P 500 and Nasdaq indexes.

Meanwhile, the Labor Department's report showed nonfarm payrolls increased by 199,000 jobs in December, although the unemployment rate dropped to 3.9% from 4.2% in November, underscoring tightening labor market conditions.

Economists surveyed by Reuters expected nonfarm payrolls to increase by 400,000 jobs in December. The average hourly earnings rose by 0.6% against expectations of 0.4%.

"This employment report continues to underscore the idea that the Fed will have to tackle inflation in a tight labor market," said Michael Arone, chief investment strategist at State Street Global Advisors in Boston.

"Investors are anticipating that the Fed will raise rates and continue to quantitative tightening. Investors are concerned the Fed will be more aggressive than expected."

Fed funds futures imply a 90% chance of a 25-basis point tightening at the March Fed meeting, and at least three interest rate hikes by the end of the year.

The data comes after the minutes from the Federal Reserve's December meeting signaled the central bank may have to raise interest rates sooner than expected amid a "very tight" job market and unabated inflation.

The hawkish tone spurred a rally in U.S. Treasury yields, prompting investors to swap technology-heavy growth shares with more cyclical parts of the market that tend to do better in a high interest-rate environment.

The S&P 500 energy sector, which has gained 9.2% so far this week, was set for its best weekly rise in ten months. The broader value index added 0.9% this week, outperforming its growth counterpart, which is eyeing its worst week since late February 2021.

At 10:07 a.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 20.30 points, or 0.06%, at 36,216.17, the S&P 500 was down 0.65 points, or 0.01%, at 4,695.40, and the Nasdaq Composite was up 11.18 points, or 0.07%, at 15,092.04.

All the three major Wall Street indexes are set for a weekly fall.

"Meme stock" GameStop Corp jumped 11.1% after the video game retailer said it is launching a division to develop a marketplace for nonfungible tokens and establish cryptocurrency partnerships.

Starbucks Corp fell 1.6% after RBC downgraded the specialty coffee retailer's stock to "sector perform" from "outperform" on valuation and margin outlook.

Discovery Inc added 12.6% after Bank of America upgraded the media company's stock to "buy" from "neutral".

Advancing issues outnumbered decliners by a 1.44-to-1 ratio on the NYSE and a 1.40-to-1 ratio on the Nasdaq.

The S&P index recorded 22 new 52-week highs and one new low, while the Nasdaq recorded 43 new highs and 67 new lows. (Reporting by Devik Jain in Bengaluru and Sinead Carew; Editing by Maju Samuel)
