Key Focus

  • And we might even have a vaccine.
    Vaccine investors, hold the Champagne
    Early approval of vaccines before the elections probably wouldn't help investors in the companies developing them, including Moderna, AstraZeneca, Pfizer PFE, +0.54%, Johnson & Johnson JNJ, +0.29%, Sanofi SNY, +1.73%, Inovio Pharmaceuticals INO, -0.48%, Novavax NVAX, +9.24% and Arcturus Therapeutics ARCT, +2.92%, among others.
    That's because many of the stocks have already risen a lot, especially those closer to being pure plays because they are smaller.
    Next, it would be bad PR for vaccine producers to be seen making a lot of profits off a global pandemic health crisis
  • As fears of a second wave of Covid-19 weigh on stocks, here's some potentially good news: A vaccine may be approved before the November election, according to a major biotechnology investing research firm.
    The prediction is a big deal for investors for three reasons.
  • For investors, early vaccine approval would be bullish for biotech stocks, cyclical stocks, travel stocks, the economy and the market overall.
  • They have been plagued for years by worries the government will regulate drug prices.
    "In the end, a vaccine likely does more for the sector as whole from a sentiment standpoint," says Jefferies'Holz.
    Vaccine approval would also help cyclical and travel stocks because it would lower the odds of another full lockdown.
