The days’ stock news:

  • Shares of AstraZeneca increased 2% after the European Union said it would grant partial immunity from any potential liability related to its Covid-19 vaccine candidate. The drug maker received this backing due to asking a lower price for the treatment and would only pay legal costs up to a certain threshold.
  • Cruise lines all moved over 7% higher after receiving an upgrade from Barclays, which said that although the call may be early, the risk/reward profile is attractive and anticipating that the CDC may make positive comments about the return to cruising.
  • Boeing supplier, Impresa, filed for bankruptcy protection, stemming from the grounding of Boeing’s 737 Max jet. The Max jet was a key source of revenue for the privately held company.
