US stocks close mixed on lackluster earnings

A collection of lackluster earnings reports and in-line economic data capped US stock gains on Wednesday, with the markets gaining no bump -- or loss -- from President Barack Obama's key policy speech.

At the closing bell the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 36.10 points (0.26 percent) at 13,982.60.

The broad-based S&P 500 edged up 0.89 (0.06 percent) to 1,520.32, barely extending a five-year high reached Tuesday.

The tech-rich Nasdaq Composite climbed 10.39 points (0.33 percent) to 3,196.88.

Trade was strong in General Electric and Comcast, after Comcast agreed late Tuesday to buy the remaining 49 percent stake it does not own in media and entertainment giant NBCUniversal from GE for $18.1 billion.

Dow member GE shares added 3.7 percent while Comcast gained 3.0 percent.
