Stocks closed higher Monday, building on last week's gains ahead of the busiest week of the third-quarter earnings season thus far.

Roughly one-third of the S&P 500 companies are scheduled to unveil their quarterly results this week. The earnings calendar is jam-packed with several Big Tech names, including Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL, +1.4%) and iPhone maker Apple (AAPL, +1.5%). The technology sector (+1.4%) performed well ahead of the release of these updates, though healthcare (+1.9%) was the top gainer today.
