About the author

All signs point to success

BioNTech and Valeo Pharma are addressing the issue of the corona pandemic in two different ways. BioNTech is investing a lot of money in research, development, and testing to get a vaccine against Covid-19 ready for the market. The company is also simultaneously building up production capacities to be able to market the highest possible number of vaccine doses as quickly as possible. In the race for a vaccine, different interests come to the fore.

Of national interest

Whoever first brings a vaccine against Covid-19 onto the market will not only have demonstrated competence but will also pave a responsible way out of the restrictions for politicians and industry. Once a vaccine is available to the general public, it is the individual responsibility of citizens to ensure that the protective measure is implemented. The state has thus fulfilled its duty. Those who do not follow the advice and the solution are likely to be more or less left to their own devices, with the consequences.

Much upside, little downside

Valeo Pharma takes a different approach, as it does not carry out its research and development, but focuses on the marketing of drugs that have already been proven to be effective. Valeo Pharma usually works with smaller biotech companies whose focus and expertise is in research and development. With a portfolio of nine different compounds, the company can now generate revenues without being exposed to research risks. From the investors' perspective, this approach means diversified and steady growth.

Investors position themselves

In response to Covid-19, Valeo Pharma has recently launched the commercialisation of Hesperco. According to experts, the active ingredient contained in Hesperco strengthens the immune system and can therefore be used to prevent Covid-19. The product is particularly suitable for the target group that does not want to opt for vaccination and is considering alternative options as a replacement. The share price can gain 13.8% to CAD 1.32 in the run-up to the quarterly results. Operating results were announced today after the close of trading in Canada. The company has been invited to a conference call tomorrow, Wednesday 30 September 2020.

Waiting for the upturn

The Bayer Group, on the other hand, could not attract any attention for a specific active ingredient in the context of the Corona pandemic. However, the company is broadly positioned in the agricultural and pharmaceutical sectors and is expected to benefit in connection with an economic recovery in the coming year. Historically, the company's share is valued at around EUR 55.00, which is low and currently demands a great deal of patience and understanding from investors.

Q & M Dental, Moderna, AstraZeneca: Serving people!

  • Health

Rarely has the stock market been so focused on people as it has been during the pandemic. People are thinking about which companies offer the best service package for all the problems associated with infections, vaccinations and even the psychological effects of isolation and loneliness. Humans are "social animals" with multiple social needs. Curtailing these needs works temporarily, but at some point, the arguments have to be genuinely purposeful so that certain restrictions continue to be accepted. At the peak of the contagion curve, we would like to see possible remedies that quickly turn the overall situation into a positive end - this is possible for the medium-term future. Still, in the short term, we have to stick together.

Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, EXMceuticals - Research in competition

  • Health

By the end of 2020, the drug market is expected to more than double to USD 1.3 trillion, with the E7 countries - Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia and Turkey - accounting for about one-fifth of global drug sales. Also, the incidence of chronic diseases in developing countries will increasingly resemble that in industrialized countries. The evidence is abundant that the pharmaceutical industry business model is both economically unsustainable and operationally lethargic to produce the types of innovative treatments demanded by global markets. The industry must fundamentally change the way it operates to take full advantage of future growth opportunities. PwC's management consultants expect the industry to shift its focus from treatment to prevention. The traditional blockbuster sales model will disappear, and sophisticated direct sales channels will diminish the role of wholesalers. Let's take a closer look!

BioNTech, Eastman Kodak, EXMceuticals - investors have the chance to profit

  • Health

The importance of health has not been as clear for a long time as it was in 2020. Detached from the discussion about the specifics of COVID-19 on mortality compared to other viruses, the need for protection is great and helplessness without a medical response is harmful to the common good. For this reason, experts around the globe are working to find active ingredients and reduce dependence on China for care. Investors have the opportunity to profit from this development.
