Investing.com -- Pfizer Inc (NYSE:PFE)r shares jumped 2% in after-hours trading after an advisory panel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended approval of the pharma's Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use.

The recommendation isn't binding, but it clears the way for the FDA to approve the drug and get vaccinations underway for millions of Americans, after the U.K. and Canada regulators cleared the vaccine. FDA approval could come as early as Friday.

Pfizer developed the vaccine with BioNTech SE (NASDAQ:BNTX). In trials, it proved to be 95% effective, though it requires storage in extremely cold environments and may not be suitable for those with severe allergies. Another vaccine developed by Moderna Inc (NASDAQ:MRNA) is still awaiting emergency authorization.

The good news comes as Covid-19 cases spike in the U.S., recording daily records for new infections and deaths.

0.0025% of the world population have tested positive  for COVID. 0.000136% are in serious condition. C19study.com shows effective cures. Then come the fanatics: “Let’s lockdown countries and vaccinate the whole world or god save us all!!!” - And the most insane part is that this is the main stream narrative. God save the awakened, the ones who battle through these dark times of psy/info warfare declared upon the citizens of the world. Anyone reporting the flu is being diagnosed as Covid on a massive scale?

I have been buying on each dip as I could afford it. I have several options out to the summer of 2021. You don't need to an insider just have patience. basic formula for most trending stocks. you may have missed this play but look I to airlines, cruse lines, hotels, etc.. and don't sell but BUY on the dips.

Don't get too excited. The U.S. has not purchased millions of Pfizer's vaccines and has not purchased enough vaccines to vaccinate all health care providers and high risk patients. This furthermore leaves workers in high risk environments at the same elevated risk since the start of the pandemic.
