Vaxart, Devon Energy, Coinbase, Tesla: What to Watch When the Stock Market Opens Today

Date:

Stock futures wavered and the 10-year Treasury yield climbed above 1.6% for the first time since June ahead of jobs data that is expected to show a drop in the unemployment rate. Here’s what we’re watching ahead of Friday’s open. 

  • Vaxart shares jumped 8% premarket after the company said its oral Covid-19 vaccine candidate has shown it could reduce the airborne transmission of the virus in an animal model.
  • Fellow vaccine makers Moderna and Novavax , that have suffered price stumbles recently, were also on the rise premarket, by about 1% each.
  • Crude prices are climbing, and shares of energy producers are following them higher. Occidental Petroleum added 1.3% premarket, Devon Energy gained 1.8% and oil-services company Halliburton rose 1.1%.
  • Bitcoin rose 2.4% from its price at 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, and stocks in the crypto world were also gaining. Coinbase was up 1.1% premarket, and bitcoin miner Marathon Digital gained 2.2%.
  • Tesla shares didn’t drive into a ditch, though they did nudge down 0.3% after the electric-car maker said it is moving its headquarters to Austin, Texas, adding to a handful of Silicon Valley companies that have relocated there.
  • Chubb shares slipped 3.4% off hours in New York. The Switzerland-based insurer agreed to buy some of Cigna ‘s Asia-Pacific operations as part of its strategy to expand in the region. 
  • Accolade shares dropped 7.9% during the extended session after the employee health benefits company reported a loss for the recent quarter.
Chart of the Day
  • China Evergrande Group ‘s path to the brink of default was littered with financial red flags. The property giant carried heavy debt loads, grew at breakneck pace and made it hard for outsiders to understand the company’s financial situation.
