Dow component Walt Disney (DIS) rose 1% after reporting quarterly earnings and revenue that beat analyst estimates. Among others reporting last night and this morning, Time Warner (TWX), Ralph Lauren (RL), Zynga (ZNGA) and Shutterfly (SFLY) advanced, while Aflac (AFL), C.H. Robinson (CHRW) and Colfax (CFX) declined.

Among the notable gainers were BIOLASE (BIOL), which rose 31% after receiving FDA clearance for a soft tissue laser device, and Metals USA (MUSA), which gained 13% after agreeing to be acquired by Reliance Steel (RS) for $20.65 per share.
 
Among the noteworthy losers was Elan (ELN), which fell 9% after agreeing to sell its 50% interest in the Tysabri MS drug to Biogen (BIIB) for $3.25 billion in cash and future royalty payments. Also lower were shares of GameStop (GME), which slid nearly 7% following a report suggesting the next version of Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox system will not allow used games to be resold.
