Many companies got upgraded by analysts following better-than-expected results such as ON Semiconductor, Old Dominion, XPO Logistics and Watsco. Meggit has accepted Parker-Hannifin's purchase offer of £6.3bn, which is almost 70% higher than Friday’s share price. This sent Meggitt's shares up 56.7%. However, there are still some hurdles to overcome, since the UK government could try to block the deal. As a result, Berenberg cut its recommendation to Hold from Buy.
