The Associated Press

Among the earnings stories for Thursday, May 9, from AP Business News:

— Orbitz Worldwide Inc. posted first-quarter net income of $146.2 million as a hefty tax benefit and higher revenue from hotel and vacation package bookings helped it rebound from a loss in the year-ago period.

— The satellite TV broadcaster Dish Network Corp. fell short of Wall Street expectations for the first quarter and its shares slid.

— The Carlyle Group LP, one of the country's largest private-equity firms, reported a slight rise in quarterly profits, mostly because of a 7 percent gain in the value of its investments.
