  • Hundreds of flights in Chicago have been canceled as a winter storm bears down on the Midwest. Chicago aviation officials report delays and more than 350 flight cancellations at O'Hare and Midway international airports.
  • Discover Financial Services reports higher earnings for its fiscal fourth quarter. Users of its namesake credit card stepped up purchases and the company wrote off fewer unpaid balances.
  • Oil closed above $90 a barrel for the first time in two months as it tracked an upward move in U.S. stock markets. Benchmark crude for February delivery ended the day at $90.13 per barrel, up 15 cents, on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
