US stocks Wednesday finished mixed as investors continued to react cautiously to a series of uneven earnings reports.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 41.10 (0.25 percent) to 16,373.34.
The broad-based S&P 500 rose 1.06 (0.06 percent) to 1,844.86, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index added 17.24 (0.41 percent) at 4,243.00.
Companies are "not beating expectations by very much," said Michael Gayed, chief investment strategist at Pension Partners. The results are "not very satisfying," he said.
