Concerns Aside

The stock market ended in the green zone on Wednesday.

For the second day in a row, investors calibrated expectations over a COVID-19 cases resurgence. Although alarming, the case number increase has happened only among the unvaccinated, along with a red-hot economic expansion that continues to show momentum. Taking advantage of investors putting aside the concerns, all the three indexes rose more than 0.8%.

Acquisition Squeeze

So, what happened?

Shares of Moneygram (Ticker: MGI) were up by more than 11% on Wednesday. The spike came after rumors that several parties are interested in acquiring the American money-transfer company. According to the report, the company received interest from a cross-border payments company and a private equity firm. If confirmed to be accurate, the acquisition could bring high profits to investors who bought the rumors.

Offerings Hit Hard

So what happened?

Shares of Orbital Energy (Ticker: OEG ) were down by more than 20% on Wednesday. The dip came after the green energy company announced a share offering. The company agreed to sell 10.4 million shares of stock to institutional investors. The company would sell each share for $3.65, way far from the value its stock was trading just before the announcement. Although previous investors had a losing day, new investors could buy the stock at a discount.

Moderna Joins the S&P 500

So what happened?

After its Covid-19 vaccines success, Moderna (Ticker: MRNA) joined the S&P 500 index. The “Club 500” membership gives a serious Wall Street credit for the companies that make part of it. With trillions of dollars invested in funds that mirror the companies in the S&P 500 index, it is a unique opportunity for Moderna to stay relevant and profitable after the pandemic. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Moderna has increased its market value by more than $110 billion. Moreover, Moderna revealed a whopping $1.2 billion profit on $1.7 billion in vax sales. Although it was Moderna’s first profit ever, it is enough to give confidence to new investors.
