Stocks Climb but Oil Sinks After Rise in Supplies


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Stocks climbed on Thursday as investors digested a range of earnings reports from Citigroup (C - Get Report) to Netflix (NFLX - Get Report) .

The S&P 500 was up 0.44%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average added 0.23%, and the Nasdaq gained 0.64%.

Net income fell to $2.90 a share, down from $4.57 a share a year earlier, and missed estimates of $2.91. Revenue fell to $6.86 billion and fell short of forecasts of $7.13 million.

Netflix added 880,000 U.S. subscribers and 2.74 million international subscribers over the quarter.
