Stocks closed mostly higher, with blue chips and the broader S&P 500 index posting moderate gains Wednesday following another batch of mostly positive corporate earning offset by a steep drop in worker productivity during the first three months of 2014. Shares of consumer staple companies posted some of the day's best gains, followed closely by energy and industry stocks.
