(Newser) – Stocks are ending mixed on Wall Street after an early gain on excitement over a new trade between the US and Canada faded, the AP reports. Larger stocks ended mostly higher Monday, but smaller and mid-sized companies fell. The price of US crude oil closed at a four-year high, which helped energy companies. Tesla soared 17.3% after Elon Musk reached a settlement with regulators that will cost him the chairman's title but will let him remain CEO. The S&P 500 rose 10 points, or 0.4%, to 2,924. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 192 points, or 0.7%, to 26,651. The Nasdaq fell 9 points, or 0.1%, to 8,037. (Read more stock market stories.)
