Energy companies led US stock indexes mostly higher as crude oil prices rose, the AP reports. Banks and other financial stocks fell Wednesday as bond yields headed lower, which will mean lower interest rates on loans and lower profits for banks. US Bancorp lost 1.3%. Depomed dropped 3% after the drugmaker replaced its CEO late Tuesday and shook up its board. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 2 points, or 0.1%, to 2,361. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 42 points, or 0.2%, to 20,659. The Nasdaq composite increased 22 points, or 0.4%, to 5,897. Two stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange. (Read more stock market stories.)
