How major US stock indexes fared Monday

Amazon and other big companies led stocks higher on Wall Street Monday, extending the market’s gains after a three-week winning streak.

Gains by technology and communication stocks, and companies that rely on consumer spending, outweighed losses elsewhere in the market.

Amazon jumped almost 8%. Noble Energy climbed after the company agreed to be acquired by Chevron for $5 billion.
