Indices closed in the green zone on Wednesday. Stocks stepped up on a variety of economic news. In earnings, CVS dipped 8.10% in the wake of quarterly details. Earnings hit $2.14 per share versus estimates of $2.05 while revenue of $54.42 billion was shy of the $54.58 billion expected. On another note, comments from the January FOMC meeting, released today, showed solid economic growth but Fed officials plan to be patient on any future interest-rate increases.
