Shares of Novavax climbed 5% during premarket trading this morning after the biotech firm announced that its iteration of the pandemic vaccine was perfectly effective in preventing serious illness among patients. It was also over 90% effective overall, and the company will soon seek emergency-use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration.
The three major stock market benchmarks were relatively muted this morning, as investors hold their collective breath ahead of tomorrow’s big Fed meeting. The recent consumer price index reflected inflation that was even hotter than anticipated, and that data could ultimately lead the central bank to change some of its easy monetary policies.
And after Tesla CEO Elon Musk hinted that his company may ultimately accept the world’s largest digital currency as payment, the virtual asset soared above $39,000 again.

Fourteen people are hurt after a mass shooting this weekend in downtown Austin’s most popular area. Yesterday, one of the victims—25-year-old Douglas John Kantor—died from his wounds.
“[He] suffered from the time of the injury until [the] time of [his] death,” the man’s brother said. “It was the most gruesome thing I could think to wish on someone.”
The incident occurred just after 1 a.m. on Saturday morning after an apparent argument between two groups, authorities said. But all of the victims appear to have been bystanders.
A patron at a nearby bar said he mistook the gunfire for motorcycle backfire.
“We turned around and saw the chaos ensuing right behind us,” said Noah Ramirez. “We realized it was actually, in fact, gunshots. I just recall seeing a few bodies on the floor, police officers running with guns drawn, people running and fleeing the scene.”
