ANOTHER UP DAY: Stocks rose for the second day in a row, helped by stronger-than-expected earnings from companies including Mattel and Goldman Sachs.

ECONOMIC NEWS: The government said September inflation was low, with most increases because of gasoline prices, which have come down since then. That leaves consumers with more money to spend.

WHAT'S NEXT: Quarterly reports due Wednesday include Bank of America, American Express, and eBay.
