Wall Street picked up right where it left off in November today, with the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq all kicking off December with solid wins. The blue-chip scored its fourth win in a row and closed at its highest level since January 2022, while the S&P 500 closed at 2023 highs. Thanks to renewed optimism that interest rate cuts are forthcoming in 2024, all three major indexes also clocked their fifth-straight weekly win. 

  • Retail stocks are head into a huge month.
  • 2 shipping stocks to avoid in December.
  • Plus, Pfizer's rough day; a gold stock to target; and the big winners of the week.
