Bank of America led a rally in big-bank stocks in mostly quiet trading on Monday. Stock indexes ended little changed following a record-setting run last week.

News that Bank of America and MBIA, a bond-insurance company, had reached a settlement over a long-running dispute propelled both stocks higher.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 5.07 points, less than 0.1 percent, to close at 14,968.89.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 3.08 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,617.50.

The Nasdaq composite index rose 14.34 points, or 0.4 percent, to 3,392.97.

For the year:

The Dow is up 1,864.75 points, or 14.2 percent.

The S&P 500 is up 191.31 points, or 13.4 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 373.46 points, or 12.4 percent.
