U.S. stocks rose Monday as banks continued to climb along with interest rates, and energy companies rallied again with oil prices. Better-than-expected auto sales and a strong report on U.S. factories also boosted stocks.

The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 129.64 points, or 0.6 percent, to 21,479.27.

The Nasdaq composite sank 30.36 points, or 0.5 percent, to 6,110.06.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks advanced 11.32 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,426.68.
