Stocks closed little changed on Wall Street as investors looked over a big batch of earnings reports from US companies, the AP reports. Ryder System, a truck leasing company, dropped 8% Thursday after reporting earnings that fell far short of what Wall Street analysts were expecting. Ralph Lauren plunged 12% after announcing that Stefan Larsson, who took over as CEO for Ralph Lauren less than two years ago, is leaving the company. The Standard & Poor's 500 index edged up 1 point, less than 0.1%, to 2,280. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 6 points, less than 0.1%, to 19,884. The Nasdaq composite gave up 6 points, or 0.1%, to 5,636. (Read more Dow Jones stories.)
