Stocks up at opening as earnings continue
Wall Street opened up this morning as key third-quarter earnings continue to roll out today.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up 18 points, or two-tenths of 1 percent.
The broader S&P 500 is up two-tenths of 1 percent while the tech-heavy Nasdaq is up slightly less.
Apple reports after the bell today. Regional bank BB&T was one penny short of estimates in its third-quarter earnings, reporting a 57 percent drop in profit before the bell. The big regional banks, such as BB&T and PNC, are worth watching this week, as they have a lot of exposure to failed consumer credit.
