The Dow is up more than 200 points, or 0.8%, while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite are up 1.1% and 1.9%, respectively.

But it's not all that peachy. M&A announcements from the weekend and this morning are weighing on some shares.

United Technologies (UTX), which announced yesterday it would merge with defense business Raytheon (RTN), is the biggest loser in the Dow, down 1.4%.

Raytheon is up 2.3%.

Salesforce (CRM) is the weakest stock in the S&P, down more than 4%. The company announced it would acquire Tableau Software (DATA) earlier today. Shares of Tableau are up a whopping 35.8%.
