Deere Reports Plunge in Earnings: Deere & Co., the world's biggest farm equipment maker, reported a 71% drop in third-quarter profit.

The company said earnings fell to $9.1 million, or 12 cents a share, for the three months ended July 31, from $31.3 million, or 41 cents, a year earlier.

Samsung Electronics Co., the world's biggest smartphone maker, posted second-quarter earnings that missed analyst estimates as sales of its flagship Galaxy S 4 handset fell short of analyst expectations. Operating profit rose to about 9.5 trillion won ($8.3 billion) in the three months that ended in June from 6.5 trillion won a year earlier, South Korea-based Samsung said in a preliminary earnings release. That compares with the 10-trillion-won average of 34 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg.

RICHMOND -- Kyle Larson's meteoric rise in the Sprint Cup Series continued Friday with an assist from Mother Nature. When qualifying for the Toyota Owners 400 was canceled because of rain, Larson earned the first pole of his Cup career because he had posted the fastest lap in the first practice on the three-quarters of a mile oval at Richmond International Raceway: 126.880 mph. He will start on the front row with Brad Keselowski, whose fastest lap...

Amazon.com Inc., the largest Internet retailer, posted second-quarter profit that missed analysts' estimates as some consumers curbed online spending and falling European currencies may have eroded overseas sales. Net income rose to $207 million, or 45 cents a share, from $142 million, or 32 cents a share, a year ago, the Seattle-based company said today in a statement. Analysts surveyed by Bloomberg expected 54 cents, on average. Shares fell in extended trading. Amazon.com suffered as some consumers, concerned that the economy isn't rebounding as fast as economists predicted, curtailed online purchases.

The Dow got shellacked Tuesday as a number of companies reported disappointing earnings. We took a look at the market action during today's KTLA-TV Channel 5 Consumer Confidential segment. We also looked at the growing number of U.S. workers who say they expect to remain on the job into their 80s, and the eerily accurate use of Halloween masks to determine the outcome of the presidential election.

The NBC broadcast network, after trailing in the ratings for nearly a decade, could finish the TV season in first place among viewers prized by advertisers. Comcast Corp. executives Tuesday lauded the peacock network's performance, which helped power the Philadelphia cable giant's earnings for the quarter ended March 31. This season, NBC has increased its prime-time audience among viewers ages 18 to 49 - the audience that advertisers pay a premium to reach. "The Blacklist" with James Spader and the singing competition show "The Voice" have been reliable performers.

Boosted by strong sales, Boeing Co. beat analysts' estimates for its first quarter largely because of faster production of commercial jetliners. The Chicago aerospace giant reported a profit of $965 million, or $1.28 a share. That's down 12.7% from $1.11 billion, or $1.44 a share, a year earlier. Boeing attributed the fall to a $330-million write-off related to changes in its pension plans and a one-time tax credit in 2013. The company's core earnings - excluding retirement costs and the write-off - rose to $1.76 a share, up from $1.73 a share a year earlier.

Three months ago, when Apple reported its holiday earnings, the company posted record revenues thanks to refreshed lines of iPads and iPhones that had launched in the fall.  But instead of basking in a big win, Apple got pounded by Wall Street because of what the company said would happen in this current quarter. Apple projected a range of revenue expectations that raised the possibility of its first revenue decline in more than a decade. Apple is scheduled to report second-quarter earnings after the markets close Wednesday, and most analysts think the company will actually squeak out a slight revenue gain.

Some Coachella sets are about finding an audience. Others are about proving just how substantial a rising band's is. The latter is the best scenario to describe the absolute hordes of fans stacked cheek-to-jowl at Chvrches' afternoon Outdoor Stage set. The Scottish electro-pop trio has made big strides since their album "The Bones of What You Believe" last fall. But the turnout at their Coachella set suggested that much bigger things are in store. The band played great, with a mix of self-effacing charm from singer Lauren Mayberry and perfectly calibrated pop bullets from her bandmates and producers.

Phyllis Frelich, a deaf actress who received a Tony award in 1980 for her performance in "Children of a Lesser God," has died at her Temple City home. She was 70. The cause of her death Thursday was progressive supranuclear palsy, her husband, Robert Steinberg, said. PSP is a rare neurological condition that also took the life of actor Dudley Moore in 2002. Born Feb. 29, 1944, in Devils Lake, N.D., Frelich was one of nine deaf children. Her parents were deaf as well. Credited with paving the way for other deaf performers, she never dreamed of acting until attending Gallaudet College, a school for the deaf in Washington, D.C. "The dream was to get out of wherever you were and meet and mingle with the cream of the deaf world, all together in one place," she told The Times in 2001.
