Moderna Ignites Emerging Markets

“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” – Henry David Thoreau

Dear Trader,

Welcome to today’s edition of Wall Street Connected.

Similar to last week, markets are showing optimism to start the week as a result of Moderna (MRNA) announcing its COVID-19 vaccine is 94.5% effective.

This announcement boosted the S&P 500 and Emerging Markets about 1% higher upon its release.

With Amazon (AMZN) set to kick off Black Friday deals on November 20th, it’s interesting to see the internet retail giant ranking #9 in financial professional searches over the course of the past week…

While last week’s domestic and emerging market rally lost steam as the week progressed (last week in review), electric vehicle stocks remained strong.

And through this past week, Electrameccanica Vehicles (SOLO) ranked #20 in searches by financial professionals with $1B+ in assets under management.

While Electrameccanica Vehicles (SOLO) may not be a household name in the electric vehicle space today, the company continues to grow their revenues as they replicate marketing techniques used by the electric vehicle behemoth, Tesla Inc (TSLA).
