Now that it is clear that Joe Biden will become president on Jan. 20, investors are thinking ahead -- with enthusiasm. The S&P 500 index was up 5% from the close on Election Day through Nov. 12.

Michael Brush listed 23 stocks and ETFs (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/these-23-stocks-and-etfs-will-benefit-from-the-6-most-important-changes-for-stock-market-investors-under-biden-11605051311) he expects to benefit from important trends during Biden's time as president.

Continuing her retirement planning series (https://www.marketwatch.com/column/help-me-retire), Alessandra Malito helps a 31-year-old engineer who expects to eventually switch to a job with a lower salary but wants to make sure he will still have enough money for retirement (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/im-a-31-year-old-engineer-who-wants-to-shift-to-a-lower-paying-job-one-day-what-rate-of-return-do-i-need-to-sustain-my-retirement-savings-11605116232) under various economic scenarios.

Many investors are interested in doing good while making money, focusing on environmental, social and governance criteria. But many 401(k), 403(b) and other employer-sponsored retirement plans don't include ESG funds. Debbie Carlson explains how to get around that (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/heres-how-you-can-add-sustainable-investments-to-your-401-k-holdings-even-if-your-plan-doesnt-include-esg-funds-11605224091).

BioNTech SE (BNTX) and Pfizer Inc. (PFE) had excellent news this week -- their COVID-19 vaccine was 90% effective in a Phase 3 trial (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/biontech-and-pfizer-say-their-covid-19-vaccine-candidate-is-90-effective-2020-11-09). Analysts expect similar successes from other major pharmaceutical developers, such as Moderna Inc. (MRNA) and AstraZeneca PLC (AZN.LN). But Michael Brush suggests looking beyond big pharma to a group of "public-space stocks (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/these-are-the-non-pharma-winners-and-losers-from-the-pfizer-vaccine-results-11604970629)" he believes will pop during an "economic melt-up" as vaccines are deployed.

Value stocks have outperformed growth stocks by a wide margin over the past two weeks. Mark Hulbert is skeptical that this will be sustained, writing that he is has "lost track of how many similar pronouncements have been made over the last 15 years, each of which turned out to fail." But based on history, he expects value stocks to rally during Joe Biden's first 100 days as president (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-the-biden-administrations-first-100-days-will-likely-see-a-rally-in-value-stocks-2020-11-13).

We are less than two weeks from Thanksgiving, and the U.S. count of new COVID-19 cases continues to hit new records, underscoring concerns that the holiday may be a superspreader event (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/coronavirus-update-us-again-shatters-daily-case-record-as-experts-worry-holidays-will-be-superspreader-event-2020-11-13).

The yield on 10-year U.S. Treasury bonds was 0.90% Friday afternoon. That is, of course, very low. Then again, the yield was much higher, relatively speaking, than a week earlier, when it was 0.77%. When interest rates rise, bond prices decline. Stocks can be forced down as well. William Watts explains the relationship between interest-rate movements and stock-market performance (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/heres-when-rising-yields-become-a-problem-for-the-stock-market-11605285084).

Shares of Zoom Video Communications Inc. (ZM) are up nearly fourfold this year, as so many business meetings have gone online. Bernstein analyst Zane Chrane makes the case that even from here, Zoom's revenue, and its stock, can rise exponentially (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/zoom-video-is-the-second-coming-analyst-says-11605197027).
