Pot stocks ETF tumbles 20% and faces its worst daily drop in its history as Cannabis trade flames outOne of the most popular ways to gain exposure to the cannabis industry was facing the worst single-day decline since it was created back in 2015, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF on Thursday was down more than 20% and on track to snap a three-day win streak as it heads to its worst day since inception, Dec. 3 of 2015. Stunningly, the ETF was still nursing an 11% gain for the week and an 81% gain in the year to date, highlighting the nearly unfettered appetite for pot stocks that has gripped the market in recent days. The decline for the popular ETF comes as Cannabis shares were tumbling sharply across the board Thursday, with many of the sector's best performers a day earlier surrendering all those gains. Tilray Inc. , a recent market darling, was last down 42%, while Aphria Inc. , with which it is merging, was down over 30%. Pot stocks have been reignited on bullish bets for positive political developments and a better legal landscape under President Joe Biden. Meanwhile, the broader market was seeing tepid gains, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average was off 0.2%, the S&P 500 index trading flat and the Nasdaq Composite Index gaining a modest 0.3% on the session.

Allergic reaction to COVID-19 vaccine reported in AlaskaHealth officials in Alaska said Wednesday that a health care worker who had received one dose of BioNTech and Pfizer Inc.'s COVID-19 vaccine had a "presumed allergic reaction." The individual, who did not have a history of allergies, reported flushing and shortness of breath within 10 minutes of receiving the vaccine and is currently hospitalized. U.K. officials last week said there had been two among the first group of people to start receiving the shots there. Hospitals in Alaska began administering doses of the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine on Tuesday, four days after the Food and Drug Administration granted emergency authorization to the vaccine, making it the first coronavirus vaccine to be made available to people in the U.S. "We expected that a side effect like this could occur," Dr. Anne Zink, chief medical officer for the state, said in a news release. "All sites that are approved to provide vaccinations in Alaska must have medications on hand to deal with an allergic reaction."

S&P 500, Nasdaq book best postelection rally in history as Biden-Trump presidential contest remains undecidedThe S&P 500 and the Nasdaq on Wednesday produced the best postelection gain on record, as investors focus on the possibility that the race for the White House between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden might yield a split government. Biden was seen edging Trump for the presidency after Tuesday's Election Day results, which were still being tallied but the expectations for a Democratic sweep appeared dashed, making it more likely that Republicans and Democrats would lock horns over the next four years--viewed as the type of political gridlock that is felicitous for financial markets. Crucial battleground states like Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania continued to be counted, with Biden holding a 248 electoral college lead, compared against Trump's 214. A total of 270 votes are required to determine a winner for the White House. Technology-related stocks led the way on Wednesday on the belief that a Biden victory and a split Congress would make the Democratic challenger's hope of raising taxes and enacting stricter regulation on tech companies less likely. The Nasdaq Composite Index gained 430 points, or 3.9%, to reach 11,591, the S&P 500 index climbed 74.45 points, or 2.2%, to 3,443, with both indexes registering their best returns in the trading day after an election on record, according to Dow Jones Market Data. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished up 1.3% higher at 27,848, but finished the session well off its best levels at 28,302, which would have resulted in the best day for the benchmark since 1900. In corporate news, shares of Biogen surged after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration offered a positive assessment of the company's experimental Alzheimer's disease drug. Meanwhile, health-care shares [s; XLV] gained 4.5% on the day, leading the S&P 500's 11 sectors, perhaps, on the belief that a Biden presidency would maintain Obamacare. The focus on politics comes also as the Federal Reserve commenced its two-day policy meeting which will conclude on Thursday and could signal that the central bank will reiterate its support for financial markets amid the economic uncertainty wrought by the pandemic.

Dow posts 440-point gain and Nasdaq notches 2.7% rise to recover a chunk of losses from Tuesday's tech routU.S. stocks finished sharply higher Wednesday, snapping a three-day selloff that a day earlier drove the Nasdaq Composite into a correction at the fastest pace in history following its record high last week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 440 points, or 1.6%, at 27,940, boosted by gains in Microsoft Corp. , Apple and salesforce.com . The S&P 500 index rose 2% to 3,399, powered by gains in technology , up 3.4%, and materials , rising 2.6%; and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index rose 2.7% to 11,142, after falling into a correction with Tuesday's 4.1% selloff.

S&P 500 logs first record close in 6 months and marks fastest recovery in history amid coronavirus: 'record breaking and heartbreaking' U.S.stocks finished mostly higher Tuesday, with the S&P 500 index notching its first record close since Feb. 19 and marking the quickest recovery from bear-market territory in its history, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The S&P 500 finished up a modest 8 points, or 0.2%, at 3,390 (on a preliminary basis, rounded). It has taken the broad-market benchmark 126 trading sessions to finish at a new record after falling by at least 20%, which defines a bear market. Gains on Tuesday were driven by a surge in consumer-discretionary shares, up 1.5%, and communication services, rising 1.1%. The record for the S&P 500 came as the Nasdaq Composite Index notched its own record close and its 34th for 2020. The Nasdaq closed up 0.7% at 11,210. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished the session off 0.2% at 27,777. All closing levels are on a preliminary basis. The records for the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq come, however, even as millions of Americans are out of work due to the coronavirus pandemic. "Many continue to wonder why stocks are at new highs with 10% unemployment and nearly a million people filing for initial unemployment claims. The truth is economic data is backward looking and stocks are looking ahead to a much brighter future," wrote Ryan Detrick, chief investment strategist at LPL Financial. "From a 34% bear market to new highs, 2020 is record breaking and heartbreaking all at the same time," he wrote.
