MIXED BAG: The government said the economy grew in the third quarter, but not fast enough to reduce unemployment. Earnings from many companies have disappointed, although not as much as some investors had feared.

INVESTOR REACTION: Stocks rose in the morning after the economic report, but then fell modestly in the afternoon. Major indexes ended little changed on the day.

WHAT'S NEXT: Ford and Pfizer report results Tuesday, with General Motors on Wednesday, ExxonMobil on Thursday and Chevron on Friday.
