NEW YORK, July 13 (Xinhua) -- U.S. stocks closed higher on Friday as investors digested a slew of quarterly corporate earnings reports.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 94.52 points, or 0.38 percent, to 25,019.41. The S&P 500 rose 3.02 points, or 0.11 percent, to 2,801.31. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 2.06 points, or 0.03 percent, to 7,825.98.
