The Weekly Bull Report – July 19th, 2020 ?

Welcome to the 112th edition of The Weekly Bull Report.

COVID-19, the 2nd wave is coming and hard unfortunately. Just as things were looking a bit better and seemed to be heading in the right direction, the virus is rearing its very ugly head. Please wash your hands, wear a mask and practice safe distancing. ?

? Noteworthy Stocks & Assets:

  • Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA) jumped 17% after the closing bell on Tuesday after the company released data that showed its potential coronavirus vaccine producing a “robust” immune response in all 45 patients in its early human trial. London’s Telegraph also reported that results from a Phase 1 clinical trial evaluating Oxford University’s COVID-19 vaccine – backed by AstraZeneca (NYSE:AZN) – generated an antibody and T-cells (killer cell). The response, if confirmed, has significant implications for sustained immunity since antibodies may fade away within months while T-cells remain in circulation for years.
  • Netflix shares plunged over 9% AH on Thursday, wiping out nearly all the gains from the last month, after earnings fell below a lofty profit consensus and weak guidance was given for Q3. While the streamer logged another 10.1M new paid subscribers last quarter, it sees “growth slowing as consumers get through the initial shock of COVID and social restrictions.” There were also big changes in the C-suite: Ted Sarandos, who has led original content efforts, was named co-CEO along with founder Reed Hastings, while chief product officer Greg Peters added COO to his title. Looking ahead, some are asking how much new content Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) will be able to upload during the COVID-19 pandemic and whether the resumption of professional sports will eat into its market share.
