Among gainers was Anthem (ANTM), which rose over 5% after reporting better-than-expected profit.

Northrop Grumman (NOC) jumped about 4% before backing off that high after the defense contractor raised full-year profit forecast and reported higher quarterly profit and revenue, boosted by strength in its aerospace business.
