In the days’ stock news:

 

  • GameStop jumped another 11% today, following a 100% advance last week. The rally in the video game company was first triggered by news last week that Chewy co-founder and former CEO Ryan Cohen is joining the company’s board.
  • American Express jumped 3.8% today after JPMorgan issued an upbeat note on the payments company and advised investors to buy the stock. The brokerage said expectations for a rebound in consumer spending and better year-over-year revenues will likely bode well for American Express into the spring as Americans start to book travel plans and the Covid-19 vaccine is distributed.
