Shares of CVS Health Corp. gained 0.6% in premarket trading on Monday after the retail giant announced plans to hire 15,000 full-time and part-time workers in the fourth quarter as it prepares for rising cases of COVID-19 and flu season. Two-thirds of the jobs are for licensed pharmacy technicians, a group of professionals that CVS wants to be allowed to administer COVID-19 vaccines, if and when they become available. There are currently only three states - Idaho, Michigan, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Utah - that allow pharmacy technicians to administer vaccines, according to a CVS spokesperson. The company is also looking to fill jobs for pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants, and distribution center and customer-service workers. The Trump administration on Friday announced a deal with CVS and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. for the drugstore chains to administer COVID-19 vaccines to residents of long-term care facilities in the future. Shares of CVS are down 19.8% for the year, while the S&P 500 is up 7.8%.
Thus far, we've witnessed the quickest bear market decline of at least 30% in history, as well as the fastest rebound to new all-time highs from a bear market low -- it took less than five months for the broad-based S&P 500 to reach new highs. First up is edge cloud platform service provider Fastly (NYSE: FSLY), which was clobbered last week after revising its third-quarter revenue forecast modestly lower. The company cited demand weakness from its top customer, TikTok, as the primary reason behind its revenue revision.
The top five best-performing stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the past week included Caterpillar, Walgreens, Intel, McDonald's and Microsoft.
