(AP) The stock market is closing mixed after an uneven batch of corporate earnings news.


The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 22 points at 15,567. If not for a big gain in United Technologies, the Dow would have closed down a point. It was another all-time high for the index.


The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell three points to 1,692. The Nasdaq composite fell 21 points to 3,579.


Earnings news was mixed.


United Technologies rose 3 percent after beating Wall Street's profits estimates, citing brisk orders at its Otis elevator business in China.


Netflix fell 5 percent after its subscriber additions fell short of what investors were expecting.


Three stocks rose for every two that fell on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was light at 3 billion shares.
