AT&T - The telecommunications giant earned
UPS - The delivery company earned
DuPont - The chemical producer earned
Whirlpool - The world's largest appliance maker earned $1.55 per share, excluding certain items, for the second quarter, nine cents short of estimates. Revenue was on the light side, and Whirlpool was yet another company to cite Europe and a strong dollar as negative factors.
Altria - The tobacco producer earned $0.59 per share for the second quarter, beating estimates by two cents. Revenue was also better than estimates, as higher prices helped offset flat cigarette volumes.
Lexmark - The printer maker fell four cents short of consensus with second-quarter earnings of $0.89 per share, excluding certain items. Revenue was short of the mark as well, as soft sales gave Lexmark a third straight quarter of revenue declines.

The chipmaker earned $0.44 per share for the second quarter, three cents above estimates.
