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.

CureVac, Cardiol Therapeutics, Bayer - roaring profits!

  • Health

The race for the best and most effective vaccine is in full swing. After BioNTech and its partner Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca were approved in Europe, but there are always obstacles. Over the weekend, for example, South Africa announced that it is forgoing the AstraZeneca vaccine for the time being. The background to this is its supposedly lower efficacy with the B.1.351 virus mutation. Somewhat unnoticed, another vaccine manufacturer is moving into pole position through innovative collaborations.

Fresenius, Fresenius Medical Care, Q&M Dental: Healthy returns await here

  • Health

Healthcare stocks have been in demand not just since the pandemic, but the pandemic is a sure game-changer for the industry in the long term. Demand for consumables and tests will continue to rise because this much seems certain: the Coronavirus will remain with us and possibly return year after year like a wave of influenza. Companies in the industry can profit from this. We present three stocks.

Fresenius - Q&M Dental Group - IBU-tec: New price explosions every day!

  • Health

Rarely has the stock market been so volatile and exciting as in the last few days. Hedge fund Melvin Capital had to close out because of the GameStop share, and now the next wave is probably looming with AMC Entertainment. A full 270% went through the roof right at the opening; according to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) thousands of buy orders were already there at opening. Again, there had been a recommendation in a social media channel. On the Nasdaq, it jumped rapidly from USD 5 to USD 21 right at the opening - something you rarely see. And GameStop continues today after yesterday's debacle! After several trading suspensions, the value exploded further from USD 149 to USD 380 after a good hour of trading. That should have been the end of trading school for many new entrants!
