“Stock futures surged Monday morning as traders took in promising data on a leading COVID-19 vaccine candidate as well as President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the U.S. presidential election, ending a days-long nail-biter over which candidate would prevail in winning the White House.
Contracts on the Dow jumped more than 1,400 points, or about 5%, setting the index up to extend its sharp gains from last week. Contracts on the S&P 500 jumped more than 3%, while those on the Nasdaq lagged as traders turned away from the software stocks and other tech names that had comprised the “stay-at-home” trade.”
Shares of Pfizer (PFE) jumped more than 12% in pre-market trading after the company announced that their clinical trial showed that their vaccine candidate was more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 in participants with no evidence of a previous coronavirus infection. Shares of BioNTech (BNTX), which is working on the vaccine alongside Pfizer, jumped more than 14% higher during the early session.”
