Why Virgin Galactic Stock Just Popped 7%

Virgin Galactic (NYSE: SPCE) stock took a tumble earlier this week after the company tweeted its disappointment: A key space test flight that investors had hoped might take off as early as tomorrow has now been delayed indefinitely.

This unexpected news -- necessitated by Virgin's need to abide by government efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus in New Mexico -- sliced 6% off of Virgin's stock price Monday.
