NEW YORK Nov 2 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks added to their recent run with sharp gains on Monday, as the beaten-down energy group and the acquisition-driven healthcare industry led increases across all sectors.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 165.15 points, or 0.93 percent, to 17,828.69, the S&P 500 gained 24.68 points, or 1.19 percent, to 2,104.04 and the Nasdaq Composite added 73.40 points, or 1.45 percent, to 5,127.15.

The Nasdaq 100 closed at its highest level since March 2000 and was less than a point away from its record closing high. (Reporting by Lews Krauskopf; Editing by Chris Reese)
