** JPMorgan upgrades truckmaker Paccar Inc  PCAR.O ,
agricultural machinery maker AGCO Corp  AGCO.N  and construction
equipment maker Terex Corp  TEX.N  to "overweight" from
"neutral"
    ** Stocks rise between 1.4% and 2.3% in premarket trading 
    ** Brokerage says recent pullback provides buying
opportunity for long-term investors as leading construction
indicators continue to accelerate and U.S. agricultural
fundamentals remain strong

significant catalyst for the group as growth and additional
margins remain constrained by supply chain challenges
    ** Says would buyer stock of Caterpillar  CAT.N , Cummins
 CMI.N  and Illinois Tool Works  ITW.N  on any weakness
    ** "Stocks reflect the early-cycle nature of the industry
but we believe that the recent underperformance provides an
interesting entry point for long-term investors with a likely
reacceleration in orders into 2022 as a catalyst," a group of
JPMorgan analysts led by Ann Duignan wrote
    ** S&P 500 machinery index  .SPLRMAC  up ~18% YTD vs 16.7%
