Stocks on Wall Street were lower for much of the morning before recovering significantly near midday.

In Europe, Spainís bank restructuring was approved, paving the way for euro zone aid to be disbursed...

Several apparel retailers reported better than expected results and saw their shares advance, including Express (EXPR), American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) and Ann Inc. (ANN).
