In the days’ stock news:

 

  • Dunkin’ Brands closed up more than 16% after the company said it held preliminary talks regarding its potential acquisition by Inspire Brands, although the company said there’s “no certainty that any agreement will be reached.” The New York Times reported that the deal could value the restaurant chain at nearly $9 billion.
  • The major U.S. airlines sold off today amid a surge in Covid-19 cases and little hope of a fiscal stimulus deal. American and Delta closed down more than 6% a piece. United fell 7% and Southwest was down almost 4%.
