Stock Market Today: Investors Buy Stimulus Hopes, But Not With Both Hands
If Thursday's modest gains are any indication, investors are growing more optimistic about the chances of some sort of COVID stimulus package before the end of the year, but they're not counting their chickens, either.

But Pfizer (PFE, -1.7%) announced in the late afternoon that it expected to ship half as many COVID-19 vaccine doses in 2021 as originally planned. While that's still more than a billion doses, the news cut into the market's gains.

The Dow was yet again led by Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA, 7.5%) and Boeing (BA, 6.0%), the latter rising on a Ryanair purchase of 75 Boeing 737 Max aircraft.
