The S&P 500 rose 1.6 percent, passing a high reached earlier in the month.

Stocks have been buoyed this month by a number of factors. President-elect Joe Biden’s clear victory and the Trump campaign’s failed efforts to undermine that result, mean the political uncertainty that once concerned investors is largely gone. And promising developments in the race for a coronavirus vaccine have investors focusing on the prospect of a return to normal.
