Monday, March 25, 2013 4:44 PM

Industrials fell 0.73%, while Transportation sector fell 0.67% lower. Apollo Group Inc.

(NYSE: DG) shares also edged higher after the company reported better than expected quarterly profit. The stock rose to an intra-day high of $52.91 before paring some of the gains to finish the day 2.02% higher at $51.08. Other major movers on Monday included Dell Inc.
