Wall Street's main indexes moved higher as a full US approval of a COVID-19 shot boosted shares of energy and travel-related companies. Drug delivery system developer N4 Pharma opened strong after announcing that it had made progress on two projects testing the applicability of its technology in the gene therapy and its COVID-19 vaccine spaces ... only to fall lower by close. Cruise operators including Carnival Corp rose about 1%, while online travel agencies and casino companies also rose. Gains in technology stocks pushed the Nasdaq to fresh highs. Economically sensitive cyclicals and smallcaps outperformed the broader market.
