Here are some of the big movers in the stock market on Monday:

1. Hasbro | Increase 12%

Hasbro  (HAS)  surged after the toymaker posted stronger-than-expected second-quarter earnings as its recent focus on digital gaming and entertainment continues to add to the top and bottom lines. 

Revenue rose 53% to $1.32 billion.

2. Aon | Increase 8.2%

Aon  (AON)  shares climbed after the insurance broker and Willis Towers Watson  (WLTW)  agreed to terminate their merger agreement.

3. Riot Blockchain | Increase 21%

Riot Blockchain  (RIOT)  shares rose as Bitcoin prices climbed amid speculation that Amazon  (AMZN)  could be entering the cryptocurrency sector. 

Amazon, the internet retail giant, recently posted a position for a digital currency and blockchain product lead on its site, hinting at a potential crypto integration in the future.

4. SPX Flow | Increase 8.7%

Shares of SPX Flow  (FLOW)  climbed after the industrial-equipment producer said it was reviewing strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of the company. 

The company recently rejected a takeover proposal from pumps and compressors manufacturer Ingersoll Rand  (IR) .

5. RBC Bearings | Increase 16%

RBC Bearings  (ROLL) shares climbed after the engineered precision bearings and components company agreed to acquire ABB's Dodge power transmission unit in a $2.9 billion deal. 

The all-cash deal to sell Dodge is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
