Moderna, Coinbase, Occidental, Royal Caribbean: What to Watch in the Stock Market Today

  • Cruise lines Carnival and Royal Caribbean were also recovering from some of their big declines last week.
  • Crude prices were also clawing back some of last week’s drop, and energy producers were climbing. Occidental Petroleum , Devon Energy and Diamondback Energy rose, as did oil-services company Halliburton .
