Here’s What Going on in the Markets as Ballots Continue to Be Counted in the U.S.

By: Bullish

Markets continue to move as ballots continue to be counted in the election. Naturally, there are some big movers. Let’s take a closer look:

🍁 As of the market close today, Biden has picked up over 90% of the electoral votes needed to win the presidency. His current standing is sending shares of marijuana companies higher and higher. Shares of the cannabis ETF $MJ are up nearly 11% today. Some of its core components are also ripping, such as Aurora Cannabis and Tilray. $ACB is up nearly 42% and $TLRY is up 30%.

🏈 Weed isn’t the only industry getting love on markets. Sports betting is now legal in 25 states, and on the news, shares of DraftKings and Penn National Gaming took off. $DKNG jumped 9% and $PENN jumped nearly 10% on the news.

📝 Finally, digital solutions for work also had a hay-day on markets today. Software connecting companies with employees and freelancers has taken a more pronounced role in business as a result of COVID-19. Our biggest Ripper of the day, Upwork, made huge strides in the last two quarters because of its core freelance-centric business. Shares of Workiva, a cloud-based compliance company for companies, also saw a big bump today. $UPWK is up nearly 44% and $WK is up 20% today.

See you all back here Sunday! Maybe we’ll know who our president is by then 👀
