NEW YORK: US stocks rose on Thursday, boosted by a strong reading on quarterly economic growth and by another round of upbeat earnings reports including Visa, which accounted for nearly 140 points in the Dow industrials.

Expedia's third-quarter profit soars 50 percent

The world's largest online travel company by bookings posted net income of $257.1 million and earned $1.94 per diluted share, well ahead of Wall Street's average estimate of $1.74, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Despite heavy competition abroad and concern that the Ebola virus would discourage travelers from planning vacations, the volume of Expedia Inc's bookings grew by 29 percent to nearly $13.5 billion in the quarter. Revenue from hotel bookings, which accounts for 73 percent of Expedia's business, jumped by 21 percent to buoy these results. "These results were pretty encouraging," said S&P Capital IQ analyst Tuna Amobi, noting that the company reaffirmed its guidance for the year.

Starbucks Americas sales disappoint on softer traffic

But that result fell short of the 6.2 percent same-store sales gain expected by analysts polled by Consensus Metrix. The U.S.-dominated Americas region contributes the majority of Starbucks revenue. ...
