Stocks are ending little changed on Wall Street as gains for banks are offset by losses in industrial companies and other sectors, the AP reports. Banks rose Monday as bond yields moved sharply higher. JPMorgan Chase added 1.9%. Industrial companies were broadly lower. Illinois Tool Works slumped 7.2% after forecasting earnings that were well below what analysts were expecting. Fiat Chrysler fell 1.8% after announcing the early departure of CEO Sergio Marchionne due to health issues. The S&P 500 index rose 5 points, or 0.2%, to 2,806. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 13 points, less than 0.1%, to 25,044. The Nasdaq composite climbed 21 points, or 0.3%, to 7,841. (More stock market stories.)
