Description:

Making Monday's headlines was CIT Group (CIT, which) is still in talks with regulators regarding it's liquidity position. The company has applied for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program and is also exploring other options.

In earnings news, Fastenal (FAST) reported second-quarter profit of $43.5 million, or 29 cents a share, down 43% from the year-ago quarter and missing analyst expectations for 33 cents a share. Sales also fell, by 21% to $474.9 million.

Philips Electronics (PHG) also reported a drop in second-quarter earnings , which fell 94% to $61.4 million.

In analyst ratings news, Oppenheimer upgraded Best Buy (BBY) to outperform and raised the price target to $42; Meredith Whitney upgraded Goldman Sachs (GS) to buy with a $186 price target; and Thomas Weisel upgraded SanDisk (SNDK) to overweight and increased its price target on the stock to $20 from $15.
