The Dow Jones industrial average closed at 13,825, up 46 points. The Nasdaq gained 19 points to 3,149.

Procter & Gamble, the world’s largest consumer products maker, rose 4 percent after reporting that its quarterly income more than doubled. Starbucks also rose 4 percent after reporting higher profits.

Rising stocks outnumbered falling ones 3 to 2 on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was about average at 3.4 billion shares.
