Israeli stocks were mostly lower but losses were modest early Monday as investors reacted cautiously to news that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was hospitalized overnight with a minor stroke. Eighteen of the TA-25's components were moving lower led by declines in Bank Leumi, Bezeq and Africa-Israel. Teva Pharmaceutical Industries and Bank Hapoalim were the best performers.
