Stocks are closing slightly higher on Wall Street, helped by corporate deal news, the AP reports. Physician services provider Envision Healthcare rose 2.3% Monday after KKR agreed to buy it for about $10 billion. Household goods makers continued their recent rally. General Mills rose 3.5%. The market had little reaction to the Group of Seven meeting, which ended Saturday with President Donald Trump withdrawing from a group statement on trade and criticizing Canada's prime minister. Trump is now in Singapore and will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore Monday night. The S&P 500 index rose 3 points, or 0.1%, to 2,782 The Dow Jones industrial average rose 5 points to 25,322. The Nasdaq composite edged up 14 points, or 0.1%, to 7,659. (More stock market stories.)
