Among the notable gainers were Avon Product (AVP), which rose over 19% and Michael Kors (KORS), which advanced 10% after their earnings reports. 

Also higher were shares of Barclays (BCS), which gained more than 8% after the company also reported quarterly results but additionally said it expects to reduce its headcount by at least 3,700 in 2013. 

Among the noteworthy losers were Level 3 (LVLT), down nearly 11%, and Valspar (VAL), down over 7% after their earnings reports.
