NEW YORK —

Stocks edged higher on Wall Street, pushing the Dow toward 14,000, as investors digested the latest round of earnings and economic reports.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 57 points to 13,939 points. The Standard and Poor's 500 rose 4 points to 1,505 points. The Nasdaq composite dropped a fraction to 3,153.

Drugmaker Pfizer and homebuilder D.R. Horton both advanced after reporting strong earnings.
