NEW YORK (AP) - Wall Street returns from a three-day holiday weekend.

The Dow gained 53.68 points to end Friday at 13,649.70.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 5.04 points to 1,485.98, while the Nasdaq composite fell 1.30 points to 3,134.70.

With fourth-quarter earnings season hitting its stride, investors are returning to the familiar comfort of cold, hard numbers that provide a real view of corporate America's performance.

This week will bring answers to questions that have hung over the market for months: Will slower growth in China put a dent in big U.S. companies' income? Will new housing numbers come in strong enough to keep homebuilders flying high? How much did Superstorm Sandy cost big insurers?
