Stock market news

“Stocks pointed sharply lower Monday as new data showed a jump in COVID-19 cases in both the U.S. and Europe. Restrictions tightened across major countries overseas, raising the specter of a further pullback in business operations and deeper anchor on global economic activity.

Losses accelerated around 11 a.m. ET, with the Dow dropping more than 650 points, or 2%. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq each also retreated sharply.

Shares of companies set to benefit from a broader economic reopening including airlines like American Airlines (AAL), cruise lines including Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) and hotels like Wynn Resorts (WYNN) sank. Shares of AstraZeneca (AZN), on the other hand, outperformed after the Financial Times reported that its COVID-19 vaccine candidate developed with the University of Oxford produced a robust immune response in elderly individuals.

The U.S. posted back-to-back days of record-high new virus cases over the weekend, with new virus cases topping 80,000 for each of Friday and Saturday. States in the West and Midwest have been hardest hit by the latest jump in cases.

France endured its own record-high day for new coronavirus cases on Sunday, when the country reported more than 52,000 positive cases over a 24-hour period. Two-thirds of the country became subject to a previously announced 9 p.m. curfew starting Friday night. In Italy, which hit a record-high for new cases last week, new business restrictions came into effect Sunday. Spain declared a state of emergency over the weekend, which also included a country-wide curfew.

“Markets ultimately care about the economic impact of pandemic news,” UBS economist Paul Donovan said in a note Monday morning. “Italy and Spain have followed France in adopting the ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ approach (it is not safe to be out of doors after dark). This is obviously bad news for bars and restaurants, but more positive for supermarkets and home entertainment.”

Elsewhere, shares of Boeing (BA), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Raytheon Technologies (RTX) came under pressure in early trading after China said it would impose sanctions on the defense units of both companies, following the U.S. approval of a $1.8 billion arms sale to Taiwan last week. China, which considers Taiwan to be part of its territory, has not yet specified the sanctions that will be put into place.”

Stock market news

“Stocks reversed earlier gains and ended mixed on Friday, as investors continued to eye commentary from officials around stimulus talks and considered the final presidential debate.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq ended the day slightly higher, although the blue-chip index still logged its first weekly loss in a month after declining early in the week.

The Dow ended in the red as a couple of components declined after posting disappointing quarterly results. Shares of Intel (INTC) sold off more than 10% after the company unexpectedly posted a quarterly decline in data center chip sales, driven by a near-halving of revenue from enterprise and government clients during to the pandemic. Shares of peer Dow component American Express (AXP) also declined, after the company reported third-quarter profit that missed consensus expectations.

Meanwhile, Gilead’s stock (GILD) rose but then pared gains after the company’s COVID-19 antiviral treatment remdesivir became the first to receive formal approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The drug was used as part of President Donald Trump’s treatment following his COVID-19 diagnosis this month.”
