(Newser) – Stocks indexes gave up much of an early rally ended with meager gains on Wall Street, the AP reports. Large-company stocks did better than smaller ones Monday. The Dow Jones industrial average and the S&P 500 indexes ended higher, but smaller-company stocks lagged behind. Technology companies and banks rose more than the rest of the market. Apple and Google's parent company, Alphabet, each rose 1%. The S&P 500 rose 8 points, or 0.3%, to 2,613. The Dow average increased 46 points, or 0.2%, to 23,979. It had been up as much as 440 earlier. The Nasdaq composite added 35 points, or 0.5%, to 6,950. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks ended little changed.
