Risk-on trades flourished in the early part of the week. Several states announced plans to ease restrictions imposed to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Gilead Sciences’ (GILD) remdesivir offered hope of becoming an approved cure for COVID-19. This rally, however, started to unravel by the end of the week.
For the week ending 5/1, the S&P 500 (SPY) lost 0.1%.
Energy (XLE), communication services (XLC), and materials (XLB) outperformed the S&P 500. Defensive sectors utilities (XLU) and health care (XLV) declined.
