Delta Air Lines Inc. and Alaska Air Group Inc. said Tuesday that third-quarter profits fell on higher fuel costs, but Southwest Airlines Co. posted an earnings increase. Southwest and Delta, the third-largest U.S. carrier, were among airlines best protected against rising fuel costs by the use of hedges, analysts said. Low-fare carrier Southwest also gained business from America West Airlines, UAL Corp.'s United Airlines and Alaska, which all had delays or cancellations.

Wall Street largely cheered Washington's massive healthcare overhaul Monday, as shares of most healthcare companies rose modestly after Sunday's vote by the House. But investors were still trying to sort out winners and losers from the legislation. Shares of the nation's two largest health insurers, UnitedHealth Group Inc. and WellPoint Inc., lost ground, while some smaller insurers were sharply higher. Shares of many healthcare companies have rallied in recent weeks with the market as a whole, showing that investors weren't fleeing the sector in fear of the Obama administration's plans for the industry.
