The Airport Operator Stock Index surges over the week ending 13 Nov 2020 with positive news about a vaccine

Created by Airport Insights, the Airport Operator Stock Index is a customized market capitalization-weighted stock market index that tracks the performance of 26 airport operators listed in stock exchanges all over the world.

It tracks the total market capitalization of this group of airport operators on a weekly basis, with the 31 July 2020 being the base date and containing a value of 100 derived from the weighted average market capitalization as of the base date.

Over the past week, the Index surged by 17.9 points to settle at 126.6 points at the close of 13 Nov 2020. Compared to the start of the Index on 31 July 2020, the Index has increased by 26.6 points.

This has been the highest weekly increase since the launch of the Airport Operator Stock Index at the end of July 2020. The improvement in the Airport Operator Stock Index in the week ending 13 Nov 2020 has been largely due to the positive reaction of the global stock market with drug firm Pzifer's announcement that preliminary analysis indicated that its coronavirus vaccine was 90% effective.

The surge in global stock prices had also been on top of a rally driven by news of Joe Biden's victory in the United States Presidential elections in the previous week.

With the exception of Hainan Meilan International Airport Company (0357.HK), all of the airport operators saw positive growth in their market capitalization in the week ending on 13 Nov 2020.

TAV Airports (TAVHL.IS) saw the biggest increase in market capitalization by 30.7% over the week ending on 6 Nov 2020.
