Aussie shares are likely to lift 0.6% to kick off the week, hopefully erasing Friday’s 0.6% fall.

80,000 Pfizer vaccine doses arrive in Australia this week to be stored at -70 degrees with DHL ready to despatch.

What to watch today:

  • In the wake of restrictions, we could see further earnings squeezes in travel stocks like Transurban Group (ASX:TCL), Webjet (ASX:WEB), Flight Centre (ASX:FLT) and Qantas (ASX:QAN).
  • Crown Resorts (ASX:CWN) shares look likely to continue their slide.
