In the biotech sector, Crispr Therapeutics (CRSP) and Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) received positive reviews from an FDA advisory panel for their gene-therapy treatment for sickle cell disease. This news boosted both companies’ stocks.
In the electric vehicle market, Tesla’s Chinese rivals, Li Auto (LI), XPeng (XPEV), and Nio (NIO), reported October deliveries, further intensifying the competition for dominance in the EV industry.
Notably, ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) and ARK Genomics ETF (ARKG) rallied on Tuesday, indicating renewed investor interest in innovative companies across various sectors.
