Gilead Sciences gained 2% after saying its leading coronavirus treatment candidate showed a 62% reduction in mortality risk compared with standard care.

Tesla keeps momentum going
Shares of the EV maker jumped nearly 25% in just over a week to top $1,400, causing fresh pain for bearish investors. Elon Musk teased the shorts by selling pairs of ‘Short Shorts,’ while the stock received some love and PT boosts from the Street. “I remain confident that we will have the basic functionality for level 5 autonomy complete this year,” Musk added, as the company competes against Google’s Waymo (GOOG, GOOGL), GM’s Cruise (NYSE:GM), Amazon’s Zoox (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Uber (UBER) in the self-driving arena. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) also appears on the verge of joining the S&P 500, a move that would unleash a flood of new demand.
Organizers of the “Stop Hate for Profit” campaign said they weren’t impressed following meeting with Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) executives on Tuesday. “We had 10 demands and literally we went through the 10 and we didn’t get commitments or timeframes or clear outcomes. We expected specifics, and that’s not what we heard,” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt declared. The gathering also included leaders from the NAACP, Color of Change and Free Press. Prior to the meeting, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said the company is “making changes – not for financial reasons or advertiser pressure, but because it is the right thing to do.”
