# [5 things to know before the stock market opens Thursday](https://www.cnbc.com/2021/02/25/5-things-to-know-before-the-stock-market-opens-feb-25-2021.html)

*****

> # 1. Stocks set for mixed open after another major comeback

> * Dow futures hold on to slim gains Thursday, one day after the 30-stock average wiped out a 110-point loss and climbed 424 points, or 1.4%, to a record closing high. S&P and Nasdaq futures dropped in the premarket. The tech-heavy Nasdaq on Wednesday erased a 1.3% drop and closed 1% higher. The S&P 500 finished 1.1% higher after recovering from a 0.6% decline. Two days of reassuring words on interest rates and inflation from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell helped push stocks higher and tempered bond yield gains Wednesday. The 10-year Treasury yield on Thursday rose to 1.45%, around the highest levels in a year. Bitcoin rose 2% early Thursday, back above $50,000.

*****

> # 2. Jobless, GDP, durable goods data all out before the bell

> * The government is set to release weekly jobless claims, revised fourth quarter gross domestic product and January durable goods orders at 8:30 a.m. ET. Economists expect a drop in new filings for unemployment benefits to 845,000. GDP in Q4 is seen rising slightly from the initial estimate to a 4.2% annual growth rate. Forecasts call for a 1% rise in durable goods orders last month, double December’s increase.

*****

> # 3. GameStop shares surge again as Reddit favorites rally again

> * GameStop climbed more than 70% in Thursday’s premarket trading as heavily-shorted stocks favored by Reddit traders surged again. Shares of the video game retailer doubled Wednesday to nearly $92 each after Chief Financial Officer Jim Bell resigned. The GameStop frenzy last month sent shares skyrocketing, causing a short-squeeze on a number of Wall Street hedge funds. GameStop traded below $20 per share in early January, before soaring to an intraday high of $483 on Jan. 28, a surge of more than 2,300%. The stock crashed below $50 by mid-February before Wednesday’s spike higher.

*****

> # 4. Pfizer, Moderna work on shots against strain first discovered in South Africa

> * Pfizer and BioNTech said on Thursday they’re testing a third dose of their Covid-19 vaccine to better understand the immune response against new variants of the coronavirus. They are also in talks with regulatory authorities about testing a vaccine modified to protect specifically against the new variant originally found in South Africa.

> * Moderna has shipped to the National Institutes of Health doses of a new Covid-19 vaccine designed to provide better protection against the variant spreading in South Africa. The new vaccine is ready to be tested in an early stage clinical trial to determine if it can be used as a booster shot against the highly transmissible strain.

*****

> # 5. GOP rallies against Democrats’ Covid relief package

> * Republicans rallied solidly against Democrats’ proposed $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill as lawmakers awaited a decision by the Senate’s parliamentarian that could bolster or potentially kill a pivotal provision hiking the federal minimum wage. Despite narrow majorities on Capitol Hill, Democratic leaders were poised to push the sweeping package through the House on Friday. They were hoping the Senate, where changes seem likely, would follow quickly enough to have legislation on President Joe Biden’s desk by mid-March.
