17.08.2015 15:49 Wall Street. Major U.S. stock-indexes rose

Major U.S. stock-indexes slightly rose on Monday although data showed a surprise fall in manufacturing activity in the state of New York in August. The market was also weighed down by oil prices, which fell toward six-year lows as data showed Japan's economy, the world's third-biggest oil consumer, contracted in the second quarter. The New York Fed's Empire State general business conditions index tumbled from 3.86 in July to -14.92 in August due to steep drops in new orders and shipments. Economists polled by Reuters had expected the index to rise to 5 this month. A reading above zero indicates expansion.

Most of Dow stocks in positive area (21 of 30). Top looser - Chevron Corporation (CVX, -2.58%). Top gainer - The Walt Disney Company (DIS, 1.42).

S&P index sectors mixed. Top looser - Conglomerates (-0.8%). Top gainer - Healthcare ( 0,5%).
