NEW YORK (AP) - Stocks are mixed on Wall Street. They opened higher after first-quarter corporate earnings reports started off on a strong note.
Aluminum maker Alcoa reported earnings late Monday that came in ahead of analysts' forecasts. The stock rose half a percent in early trading Tuesday.
Alcoa beat Wall Street's earnings forecasts thanks to strong demand from plane and auto builders. The company is forecasting a 7 percent increase in aluminum demand.
J.C. Penney plunged 9 percent to $14.45 after ousting its CEO Ron Johnson late Monday.
