NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- U.S. stocks ended Monday mixed, as investors digested better-than-expected retail sales and Citigroup's (C) earnings, while Apple (AAPL) weakness led a technology sector selloff that pulled down the Nasdaq.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was responsible for most of the green on the trading chart, with the Dow rising 71.82 points, or 0.56%, to 12,921.41 on Monday. The S&P 500 dropped less than a point to 1,369.57 and the Nasdaq Composite fell 22.93 points to 2,988.40.
Breadth within the Dow was positive with 24 of the 30 components posting gains. Alcoa (AA) ended Monday flat.
