Updated: Nov 25, 2020

  • Ending the week lower by 0.8%, the S&P 500 declined by 0.7% today. Small-Cap and Mid-Cap stocks delivered another week of gains amid an ongoing post-vaccine "sector rotation" pattern.

  • Today's modest declines came despite additional progress in the vaccine race as Pfizer (PFE) filed for emergency use authorization for their COVID-19 vaccine with FDA approval expected within weeks.
