Astronics Corp., which makes lighting systems for commercial and military planes, gained $1.99 to $15.23.

Among decliners was drugstore chain Walgreen Co., which dropped $6.55 to $34.46 after it said fiscal third-quarter profit rose less than forecasts as consumers spend less on grills, sunglasses and other products.
