Vaccine Approved, Mining Stocks Fall
On December 12th, the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer was approved for launch in the United States. This comes just about two weeks after this candidate was announced to be 95% effective. Now on December 14th, the vaccine is being shipped already. FedEx and UPS are both shipping out 2.9 million initial doses of the vaccine from Pfizer plants to various hospitals, clinics, and more.
Vaccine shipments have priority access at airports among other special treatment in order to arrive as quick as possible. On December 14th, the first dose of the vaccine was given in the United States in New York. On the day of this, the price of gold has fallen, as well as silver. This is not a surprise because if the vaccine continues to propel at this rate it can result in a faster recovering economy. But there is one thing that is in the way of that happening. Let’s look at the other primary factor that is impacting the price of mining stocks.
Latest Stimulus Update Could Affect Mining Stocks
The next factor that is impacting mining stocks is government stimulus. There has been a bipartisan government stimulus bill in talks with Senate negotiators. Now the deal will likely include enhanced federal unemployment benefits among other things. But it will not distribute additional $1,200 stimulus checks. The new $908 billion bipartisan proposal essentially needs to get support from both parties. This bill would also put $6 billion into vaccine distribution.
While it seems like progress is being made, there is still nothing that has been approved. So as this bill continues to not go through and the vaccine gets distributed, it has caused some pull back from precious metal investors. Now Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader, D-N.Y. has stated that his party is “100% committed” to approving more relief this week with the bill. So we will see when this comes into effect and how it changes the price of precious metals which could create some interesting mining stocks to watch.[Read More] Gold Stocks For Your December 2020 Watch List
