NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks edged higher in early trading Tuesday following several positive earnings reports from U.S. companies, holding the S&P 500 above 3,000 and within range of its all-time high set on July 26.

The latest earnings were surprisingly good, though a few large companies gave investors disappointing results and tempered the market's gains.
