The S&P 500 .SPX gained 2.8%, the highest close since June 9. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite .IXIC added 3.1%, marking the biggest one-day percentage gain since June 24.
Shares of HalliburtonHAL.Nrose 2.1% after the oilfield services provider posted a 41% increase in quarterly adjusted profit. Toymaker Hasbro Inc HAS.Ogained 0.7% after reporting quarterly profit ahead of expectations.
Truist Financial Corp TFC.N also beat market estimates for quarterly profit, sending the bank's shares up 2.6%.
"Earnings have come in better than lowered expectations," said Paul Kim, CEO of Simplify Asset Management in New York.
"So we're not seeing the bite of tighter monetary policy and inflation impacting revenue as much as feared."
Johnson & Johnson shares lost 1.5%, reversing earlier gains. The healthcare giant reported profit and sales that exceeded expectations but cut its earnings outlook for the year due to a soaring U.S. currency.,
A strong dollar also weighed on shares of IT hardware and services company IBM Corp IBM.N, which beat quarterly revenue expectations on Monday but warned the hit from forex for the year could be about $3.5 billion.

The Dow Jones Industrial Averagerose 754.44 points, or 2.43%, to 31,827.05, the S&P 500 gained 105.84 points, or 2.76%, to 3,936.69 and the Nasdaq Composite added 353.10 points, or 3.11%, to 11,713.15.
"The macro picture hasn't changed," said Kim. "We still have falling earnings, high inflation pressures and a tightening Fed. So longer term, I don't think this type of rally has staying power."
In this earnings season, analysts expect aggregate year-on-year S&P 500 profit to grow 5.8%, down from the 6.8% estimate at the start of the quarter, according to Refinitiv data.
