Several stocks were moving on earnings news. Trucking company Ryder System rose 6% after reporting results that were better than analysts had expected. Chemicals maker DuPont rose 2%. Appliance maker Whirlpool sank 4% after saying its results were hurt by a stronger dollar. The Dow Jones industrial average added 13 points, or 0.1%, to 17,990.
