“Dow posts best month since 1987 as vaccine news boosts stocks.

Stocks fell Monday as investors gave back some of last week’s gains, which sent the S&P 500 and Nasdaq to fresh record highs and the Dow above 30,000 for the first time ever.

However, the three major indices capped off November with major monthly gains. The Dow posted a monthly gain of nearly. 11.9% for its best month since early 1987. The S&P 500 tracked toward a rise of about 10.7%, and the Nasdaq posted an 11.9% advance in November, which were each the best gains since April this year.

Investors rode a wave of upbeat news about impending COVID-19 inoculations, with AstraZeneca (AZN) becoming the latest drug-maker to announce strong efficacy data about its vaccine candidate last week. Moderna (MRNA) said Monday it will file for emergency use authorization with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its vaccine candidate, joining Pfizer (PFE), which has already applied for an EUA.

Stocks set to benefit most from the lasting economic reopening that a vaccine might confer ticked lower after soaring last week, as traders extended November’s rotation into cyclical stocks and away from some of the high-flying tech names that had led earlier on during the pandemic. Shares of Carnival Corporation (CCL), Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH), American Airlines (AAL), and United Air Lines (UAL) jumped by double digit percentages last week alone, far outpacing the broader market’s 2.3% advance over that time frame. Boeing (BA), American Express (AXP) and Chevron (CVX) led last week’s gains in the Dow.”

stock market news

“Wall Street rose on Friday, with stocks posting marginal new highs in thin, post-Thanksgiving trading, as hopes for a COVID-19 vaccine momentarily counterbalance soaring infection rates.

The New York Stock Exchange closed early for the Thanksgiving holiday. Stocks are consolidated their gains after the Dow Jones Industrial Average was catapulted above 30,000 for the first time ever on Tuesday, with an increasing number of investors encouraged by expectations that a vaccine will be rolled out by early next year, if not sooner.

“In the US, we expect the first available doses to go to high-risk groups from mid-December onwards, leading to significant public health benefits from [the first quarter of 2021] onwards, followed by widespread vaccination commencing in April,” Goldman Sachs economists wrote in a research note on Friday.

“While the exact timeline remains quite uncertain, this analysis reinforces our baseline forecast that widespread immunization should drive a sharp pickup in global growth starting in Q2,” the bank added.

As an indication of how investors are pricing in the upside, the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) — the market’s “fear gauge” — briefly dipped below 20 on Friday, its lowest level in 9 months. The Dow (^DJI) closed below the critical 30,000 threshold, but is up more than 13% this month — more than 10,000 points higher than the multi-year low it breached in March, when panic over the virus’ spread cratered global markets.

Separately, the the S&P 500 (^GSPC), Nasdaq and the Russell 2000 (RUT) index also set fresh historic highs. Until recently, the technology-heavy Nasdaq has lagged other indexes as investors rotate out of “stay at home” stalwarts benefiting from coronavirus-related lockdowns.”
