The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq both hit fresh records on Thursday, as stocks continue their rally to start December. The gains come after the Dow climbed 12% in November for its best month since 1987. And Wall Street is finally casting a wider net outside of the pandemic high-flyers like Zoom Video (ZM Quick Quote ZM - Free Report), Target (TGT Quick Quote TGT - Free Report), and other companies that benefitted from the social distancing push.

The positive news on the vaccine front was clearly the catalyst for November’s wide-spread rally that saw over 450 stocks in the S&P 500 climb. This marked the largest share for any month since April, according to the Wall Street Journal, and crushed October’s 212 figure and September’s 153.

Investors are projecting that the hard-hit areas such as energy and travel will be able to bounce back in 2021 if a vaccine is rolled out. Meanwhile, the earnings outlook continues to improve for the fourth quarter and beyond and the U.S. economy remains in comeback mode.

But that is pretty straightforward these days, and let’s not forget that both are under heavy government scrutiny.
