stocks jumped sharply on Monday in a broad-based rally as stocks tied to the economic reopening jumped on vaccine optimism, while tech names rebounded from steep losses last week.

The 30-stock Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 600 points, or 2%, led by Boeing which climbed 5%. The S&P 500 gained as all 11 sectors traded in the green. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite, which shed last week, also popped on Monday.

Just about 40 stocks in the S&P 500 were lower on the day. And at the Big Board, advancers outnumbered decliners by Economic reopening plays like Carnival and American Airlines were higher by at least 3% amid optimism on vaccines. Meanwhile, high-growth tech shares outperformed as rates stabilized. Apple popped and Tesla rose 5%.

The 10-year Treasury note yield dipped slightly to on Monday, off by 2 basis points from Friday and down from its recent high of on Thursday. Yields appeared to be stable at these levels, which encouraged investors that the rapid rise in rates was at least slowing.

“Investors ask whether the level of rates is becoming a threat to equity valuations. Our answer is an emphatic ‘no,‘” David Kostin, Goldman Sachs’ chief equity strategist, said in a note to clients. “Our bullish US equity view has already embedded expectations of rising interest rates.”

Boosting sentiment on the vaccine front, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory panel voted unanimously Sunday to recommend the use of Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot Covid-19 vaccine for people 18 years of age and older. The company expects to ship four millions doses initially.

A sudden spike in the benchmark 10-year note rate rattled stocks last week as rising rates can threaten the relative appeal of equities and compress stock valuation by reducing the value of future cash flows. Last week, the blue-chip Dow and S&P 500 lost and , respectively. The technology-heavy Nasdaq suffered its worst one-day sell-off since October on Thursday and posted its worst week since then by Friday’s close.

“Equity investors are still looking at the rise in rates mostly as ‘a good thing’ and not yet as a threat notwithstanding some shaking of the tree in high multiple stocks and other parts of the market last week,” said Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group. “The benefits of the vaccines vs the challenge of higher rates will be the theme this year.”

On the stimulus front, the House passed a $ trillion Covid relief bill, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, early Saturday. The Senate will now consider the legislation.
