“The Dow and S&P 500 soared to record closing highs on Monday after Moderna (MRNA) became the latest major drug-maker to announce upbeat data for its COVID-19 vaccine candidate, building on hopes that an effective inoculation will soon be available.

The Dow rose more than 450 points, or 1.5%, to top both its former record closing and intraday high on Monday. The S&P 500 also increased to a record close. Shares of airlines, cruise lines, hotels, and restaurant companies surged anew as the latest vaccine data suggested consumers might return more enthusiastically to these businesses. Moderna’s stock jumped more than 9% to a record high of its own.

Moderna said Monday that preliminary data from its late-stage clinical trial showed its vaccine candidate was 94.5% effective in preventing COVID-19 in participants. That followed Pfizer’s (PFE) announcement last week that its own vaccine candidate, which uses similar new messenger RNA technology, had an efficacy rate of more than 90%, or well above what many public health officials had been expecting.”

Stock market news

Stocks were mixed Tuesday after a selloff on Wall Street pushed the Dow and S&P 500 to their biggest one-day drops in more than a month.

The Dow fell as components 3M and Caterpillar fell after reporting earnings results. A day earlier, the index dropped 650 points, or 2.3%, for its worst single-session decline since the beginning of September. The S&P 500 fell 1.9% for its worst drop since September 23, and the Nasdaq fell 1.6% for its worst decline in a week.

Airline, cruise line and resort stocks also extended losses after enduring a steep drop a day earlier, as traders fled from names most exposed to disruptions that could occur if a jump in virus cases further stems discretionary travel. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) shares sank after the company announced it agreed to purchase peer chipmaker Xilinx (XLNX) in a $35 billion all-stock deal, confirming rumors from earlier this month. Shares of Xilinx jumped more than 10%.

Concerns over elevated new case counts in the U.S. and abroad contributed heavily to traders’ jitters. Domestically, cases hit a record high of more than 80,000 on Friday and held above that threshold again on Saturday. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said during Yahoo Finance’s All Markets Summit on Monday that the U.S. is still in the “original first wave” of the pandemic, given that cases never stabilized to a more manageable level to begin with. Overseas, the Czech Republic on Monday joined France, Spain and Italy in imposing an evening curfew to try and curb the spread of the coronavirus, with cases again surging across Europe.

The virus resurgence compounded with ongoing uncertainty over the U.S. election results next week and discussions over another significant coronavirus relief package out of Washington.”

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.”
