It was a mixed week for the Internet Retailer Online Retail Index in advance of the Memorial Day holiday, with only 11 of the 25 index stocks advancing for the week.

Nonetheless, the index of online retailer and e-commerce technology provider stocks ended the week up 0.21%, in a week when the Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 0.56% and the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index lost 0.16%.

The top five stocks in the index last week were all online retailers: 1800Flowers.com, Netflix, Overstock.com, Shutterfly and American Greetings. The biggest loser was eBay, whose PayPal unit sued Google last week over the search engine company’s new mobile payments service.

Here are the best-performing stocks last week in the Online Retail Index and the percentage gain in stock price for each:

• 1800Flowers.com, 9.3%

• Netflix, 7.6%

• Overstock, 4.7%
