US Futures Higher as Positive Pfizer Vaccine News Ease Omicron Fears

8:28AM ET 12/08/2021 MT Newswires
US stock futures were modestly higher Wednesday, rising for a third consecutive day on easing concerns about the COVID-19 omicron as Pfizer (PFE) and BioNTech (BNTX) said their vaccine can nullify the coronavirus variant.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures rose 0.2%, S&P 500 futures gained 0.2%, and Nasdaq futures increased 0.2%.

Equities have recovered from last week's fallout after White House chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci, downplayed the variant's severity, saying signs are "a bit encouraging."

Meanwhile, Pfizer and BioNTech said Wednesday preliminary results from a laboratory study showed that their coronavirus vaccine can neutralize omicron after three doses.

Oil prices were little changed, with front-month global benchmarks Brent crude up 0.3% and US West Texas Intermediate crude down 0.1%, stabilizing after industry data showed a weekly fall in US crude stockpiles.

At 10 am ET, data are expected to show job openings based on the Labor Department's JOLTS report coming in at 10.469 million for October versus September's 10.438 million, according to Bloomberg data.
