With this morning’s announcement from Pfizer, theme park stock prices, among others, surged. According to a report on Variety, “Disney opened up [at] more than 14%.” Investors are now hoping for a bigger reopening of the company’s theme parks when the time is right.

The trial vaccine “was found to be more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 in participants without evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection…”
