The CDC and FDA are recommending a pause in the use of the one-shot, Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Latest COVID-19 news.
A choppy day of trading on Wall Street ended with indexes mixed Tuesday as a drop in bond yields hurt bank stocks but helped big technology companies. The S&P 500 rose 0.3% after briefly slipping into the red in the early going. The modest gain nudged the benchmark index to an all-time high. Technology stocks and companies that rely on consumer spending helped lift the broad market index. The gains were tempered by a pullback in banks, industrial companies and other stocks. Johnson & Johnson fell 1.3% after U.S. regulators recommended a pause in using its single-dose COVID-19 vaccine to investigate reports of possibly dangerous blood clots. Moderna, which also makes a COVID-19 vaccine, climbed 7.4%. Worries about the potential loss of a vaccine option also pulled down companies that are counting on pandemic restrictions easing, though the losses eased by the end of the day. American Airlines slipped 1.5% and Delta Air Lines fell 1.1%. The broader market has been mostly notching gains this month, reflecting cautious optimism among investors that the economy will strengthen and corporate profits will improve as the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine paves the way for businesses to more fully reopen. A pause in the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine isn't going to derail that, analysts said. “The response today has been very muted and isolated,” said, Scott Knapp, chief market strategist at CUNA Mutual Group. “Markets don't expect lockdowns. The recovery may be delayed, but not a return to pandemic conditions.” The market's initial sell-off on the J&J news was “a bit of an overreaction,” said Jay Hatfield, CEO of Infrastructure Capital Management. “We had a dress rehearsal for this last week because there was a huge disruption to the J&J supply and nobody seemed to care," Hatfield said. "Clearly, the recovery is not dependent on J&J significantly.” The S&P 500 rose 13.60 points to 4,141.59. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 68.13 points, or 0.2%, to 33,677.27. The Nasdaq gained 146.10 points, or 1.1%, to 13,996.10. The divergence between the Dow and Nasdaq was largely due to the fact the Dow has more bank stocks and also includes Johnson & Johnson, while the Nasdaq is heavily weighted with technology companies. Small company stocks also lost ground. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies gave up 4.86 points, or 0.2%, to 2,228.92. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury fell to to 1.62% from 1.67% the day before. JPMorgan Chase fell 1.2% and Wells Fargo lost 2.4%. Investors will get a chance to look over the books of the big banks starting Wednesday, when JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo report their quarterly results. Bank of America and Citigroup report their results on Thursday. Big technology stocks, which have fallen when bond yields have risen, closed solidly higher. Apple rose 2.4% and Microsoft gained 1%. Technology stocks rose sharply in 2020 as investors bet that stay-at-home Americans would shift even more to online buying and electronic entertainment to keep themselves busy in the pandemic. Investors had little reaction to a report that showed U.S. consumer prices increased a sharp 0.6% in March, the most since 2012, while inflation over the past year rose a sizable 2.6%. The big gains are expected to be a temporary blip and not a sign that long dormant inflation pressures were emerging. The index rose 0.4% in February. The Fed has been trying to reassure markets that any increase in inflation would be temporary as the economy recovers. “It looks like the market is starting to internalize that point of view,” Knapp said. Traders in cryptocurrencies pushed up the price of Bitcoin above $63,000 for the first time Tuesday. It rose 5.3% to $63,179.98, according to the tracking site CoinDesk. The rally comes as cryptocurrency exchange and digital wallet operator Coinbase is set to make its stock market debut Wednesday. Damian J. Troise And Alex Veiga, The Associated Press
I got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Now what? Don't panic. U.S. health officials on Tuesday recommended pausing vaccinations with J&J's shot as they look into reports of six clots out of nearly 7 million doses given in the country. Health officials say to be vigilant, but to remember that reports of blood clots that may be associated with J&J’s single-dose vaccine are exceedingly rare. “It’s less than one in a million," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious disease specialist. Common side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine can include arm pain and normal flu-like symptoms for a couple days afterward. Those aren't pleasant, but they aren't what officials are concerned about. Instead, be on the lookout for different, more severe symptoms associated with the clots, particularly between one and three weeks after the shot. Those include severe headache, backache, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, leg swelling, tiny red spots on the skin or bruising. If those symptoms show up, seek medical treatment right away. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued advice to help doctors spot these rare clots and safely treat them. ___ The AP is answering your questions about the coronavirus in this series.

(TSX:BNS). Health care. Up $1.08, or 6.18 per cent, to $18.55 on 5.8 million shares. Companies in the news: George Weston Ltd. (TSX: WN). Down 39 cents, or 0.35 per cent, to $112.21. George Weston Ltd. says W. Galen Weston has died at age 80. The Toronto-based company says Weston died peacefully at home Monday after a long illness. Weston previously held executive and senior roles at food, retail and real estate giants his family founded or led including Loblaw Companies Ltd., Choice Properties, Selfridges Group and Weston Foods. He retired as chairman of George Weston Ltd. in 2016 to make room for his son Galen G. Weston, a tradition set by his father, W. Garfield Weston, who also stepped down at the age of 75. Since his retirement, Weston remained a part of his family's philanthropic endeavours including the Weston Family Foundation and the Weston Brain Institute. Weston was married to wife and former Ontario lieutenant-governor Hilary for 55 years and together they raised Alannah Weston, who is chair of the Selfridges Group, and Galen Weston Jr., the chief executive at George Weston Ltd. Air Canada (TSX:AC). Air Canada has revised its COVID-19 refund policy to cover eligible customers who bought non-refundable airline tickets or vacation packages between Feb. 1, 2020, and April 13, 2021, the company said Tuesday. Customers who have already accepted a travel voucher or Aeroplan points instead cash will also have the option to exchange these for a refund, it said. The refunds follow a deal between the airline and federal government which will provide a total of $5.9 billion in aid to Canada's largest airline, including up to $1.4 billion to support the new refunds. The airline said it has already provided $1.2 billion to customers with refundable tickets. The airline will accept online refund requests until June 12 at aircanada.com/refund. Air Canada has also revised booking policies for all future travel, starting Tuesday, to provide more certainty if a flight is cancelled or rescheduled by more than three hours. All customers will have the choice of receiving a refund, an Air Canada Travel Voucher or the equivalent value in Aeroplan Points with a 65 per cent bonus, the company said in a statement. Air Canada has committed to resume service at 13 regional airports as well as seven others through agreements with regional carriers. As part of the package, Air Canada has also agreed to cap executive compensation, maintain staffing levels and complete previously planned aircraft purchases. Bank of Nova Scotia (TSX:BNS). Down 98 cents, or 1.25 per cent, to $77.51. The head of the Bank of Nova Scotia is urging Ottawa to adopt a series of policy changes. Scotiabank CEO Brian Porter said Tuesday that he wants to see a top-up to the annual Canada Child Benefit and child-care expense deductions, the introduction of a grant for businesses to make capital investments and the elimination of interprovincial trade barriers. Speaking at the bank's annual general meeting, which was held virtually for the second time because of the pandemic, he positioned his pitches as an opportunity to learn from the health crisis. Porter's ideas come ahead of the April 19 federal budget. He said they would help grow the economy, increase the number of working Canadians and make the country stronger and more prosperous. Porter called for the Canada Child Benefit to be topped up by $5,000 per child. In July, the maximum annual Canada Child Benefit reached up to $6,765 per child under age six and up to $5,708 for kids aged six to 17. Families already receiving the Canada Child Benefit also got a one-time $300 boost per child last year. Porter is also advocating for a significant increase to child-care expense deductions to allow parents to fully deduct the cost of preschool child care. Under the current rules, parents and guardians can claim up to $8,000 per child for kids under the age of seven and $5,000 per child for children aged seven to 16. While child-care costs vary across the country, Porter said increasing the amount to $20,000 per child per year should cover the cost of daycare in every Canadian city. Fortis Inc. (TSX:FTS). Up 54 cents, or 0.99 per cent, to $55.28. The Canada Infrastructure Bank and ITC Investment Holdings have signed a deal to invest $1.7 billion in an underwater transmission line connecting Ontario to Pennsylvania under Lake Erie. Under terms of the agreement in principle, the bank will invest up to $655 million or 40 per cent of the project cost. ITC, a subsidiary of Fortis Inc., and private sector lenders will invest up to $1.05 billion. The Lake Erie Connector is a proposed 117-kilometre underwater transmission line connecting Ontario with the PJM Interconnection on the U.S. side of the lake. ITC acquired the project in August 2014 and has received all necessary regulatory and permitting approvals. The bank expects the deal to close later this year, pending final project transmission agreements, with construction to start soon after. Magna International Inc. (TSX:MG). Up $4.93, or 4.39 per cent, to $117.32. Magna International is planning to expand its global manufacturing capacity to North America as it focuses on electric vehicle production. In an investor presentation, Magna executives said the Aurora, Ont.-based auto parts company plans to become an industry leader in North America while aiming for carbon neutrality by 2030. CEO Seetarama (Swamy) Kotagiri says the company will partner with more overseas startups, including the recently announced collaboration with Innoviz Technologies, in its move toward electric vehicles. The comments come a day after Israeli electric mobility startup REE announced its partnership with Magna to develop modular electric vehicles. Last year, the auto supplier signed a deal with LG Electronics to create a joint venture called LG and Magna e-Powertrain JV to build components for electric cars. The company says it expects its sales to grow to between US$43 billion and US$45.5 billion in 2023. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 13, 2021. The Canadian Press

CALGARY — Canada's world champions in beach volleyball are amping up preparations for the Summer Olympics coming over the horizon. The COVID-19 pandemic kept Sarah Pavan of Kitchener, Ont., and Toronto's Melissa Humana-Paredes apart and docked from competition for much of 2020. The Canadian duo plans to compete in at least five tournaments over the next two months starting Thursday in Cancun, Mexico. The world governing body of volleyball, FIVB, created a hub of three straight World Tour events in Cancun to afford teams the chance to qualify for the Tokyo Summer Games opening July 23. Pavan and Humana-Paredes booked their Tokyo berth when they won the women's world title in 2019. The upcoming tournaments, however, are crucial game reps for a duo that's short on them. "I think Cancun will be a real test for us against every team because it is such a lengthy event, to see where we're really at," Pavan told The Canadian Press. "Other teams are scrambling to accumulate points. Obviously we want to win every tournament we play . . . but to be able to take a very objective approach and just see it as information gathering for Tokyo is definitely a luxury. "We are able to use all of these events to gather information both on ourselves and the things we need to get better at, but also on tactics teams are using against us, or improvements or changes they may have made during COVID." Toronto's Heather Bansley and Brandie Wilkerson also in the Cancun women's field have essentially qualified for Tokyo based on their FIVB Olympic provisional ranking of sixth. Canada can send a maximum of two teams in each gender, but the men have some work to do this spring. Samuel Pedlow of Barrie, Ont., and Sam Schachter of Richmond Hill, Ont., rank just outside the top 18 in the provisional rankings. Calgary's Ben Saxton and Toronto's Grant O'Gorman are also trying to qualify. Pavan, 34, and Humana-Paredes, 28, aren't facing qualification pressure, but they want to recover their game form in the upcoming tournaments. "Do I think we're playing at the level that we need to be in July? Absolutely not," Pavan said. "I don't think we're performing at a gold-medal level right now, but fortunately we still have a few months to be able to hit our stride." The duo intends to compete in World Tour events in Sochi, Russia in May and Ostrava, Czech Republic in early June. They're also contemplating another tournament in Gstaad, Switzerland in early July to avoid six weeks without a match heading into Tokyo. Pavan lives in Hermosa Beach, Calif. Canada's requirement of a 14-day quarantine for travellers arriving outside the country was a barrier to the teammates crossing the border to practise together. Neither woman felt she could afford the deconditioning that happens during two weeks of isolation too many times. Humana-Paredes headed to California on Jan. 2 to join her teammate and stayed there. She doesn't expect to return to Canada until after the Olympic Games conclude Aug. 8. "I won't be able to go home until after Tokyo," Humana-Paredes said. "That's the mindset I've had to come to terms with. For the majority of the time, I'm in a good head space and happy to be able to train and be with my team and continue to get better. "Sometimes I miss by people back home and than can weigh on me a little sometimes. Last summer was so difficult because there was so much uncertainty. We do have a schedule to look forward to, a routine and things we can plan for and the Olympics are still on." Her boyfriend, Connor Braid of Victoria, is a member of Canada's rugby sevens team bound for Tokyo. Pavan and Humana-Paredes finished second in the Katara Beach World Cup in Doha, Qatar on March 12 in their first major international competition in 18 months. The field didn't include all of the world's best teams, said Pavan, but the result was important for the Canadians' confidence. "We had signed up for the event, but we didn't feel ready and we actually made the final decision to go a week before the event," Pavan said. "We were unsure, but we decided to just use it as a measuring stick. There were some teams that weren't there, but to be able to fight through that event while not being as crisp as we're used to was good."
