Airline, hotel, and cruise stocks surged on Monday as Moderna's encouraging vaccine trial results spurred fresh optimism for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
The biotech company announced Monday morning that its experimental coronavirus vaccine was 94.5% effective at preventing COVID-19 in a preliminary analysis. The update comes one week after Pfizer and BioNTech revealed similarly positive results from early trials of their own vaccine. While both candidates still need to receive approval from the US Food and Drug Administration, their supposed effectiveness suggests a nationwide rollout could come in 2021.

The news boosted shares of companies hit hardest by the virus and stay-at-home restrictions. United Airlines leaped as much as 8.6%. American Airlines and Delta both jumped roughly 6% shortly after the vaccine news.
