Cannabis expertise for German brewing

XPhyto Therapeutics is not yet as well known in Germany as the renowned partners and institutions with which the Canadian cannabis company cooperates in this country. The renowned and world-famous German brewery Oettinger has recently agreed to cooperate with XPhyto. As a common goal the cooperation in the field of development as well as production and distribution of new cannabis spiked beverages and products has been agreed. XPhyto's expertise is in the formulation and clinical validation of cannabis products in the growing European market.

Through a wholly owned subsidiary in Germany, the company has obtained a unique license for the cultivation and extraction of cannabis for research purposes from the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices. In addition, XPhyto, through its subsidiary, has two R&D collaboration agreements with the Faculty of Chemistry and the Chair of Beverage and Brewing Technology at the Technical University of Munich. With a share price of CAD 3.25, the company is valued at CAD 176 million and is not far from its high of CAD 3.55.

Individual cancer therapies to cure

BioNTech's stock is also on the rise, and yesterday closed with a gain of EUR 1.53 or 3.3% at a price of EUR 48.40. The market value of the German biotech company already exceeds EUR 10 billion. At its annual high, the share was already trading at over EUR 60.00. BioNTech is focused on new and individual cancer therapies and is currently working with renowned partners on the development of a vaccine for Covid-19. In connection with the Corona Pandemic and possible test results, the company is expected to remain in the focus of reporting in the coming months.

Product research and development

MorphoSys, Sativa Wellness Group, CureVac: Healthcare investments of tomorrow

  • Healthcare

The healthcare sector is facing a reassessment. For years, especially in Germany, health care has been "fiddled with" - a reform here, a change there, but in basic terms, little has changed in the system in recent years. With the new federal government, things could start to move. Regardless of ideological trench warfare, observers can state, especially under the impression of the pandemic, that innovative treatment methods and preventive care are the most important trends for the future, along with the digitization of the healthcare system. In this context, we present three companies and highlight their opportunities.

But the discussion about extremely rare side effects also shows: Vaccines and drugs are subject to strict regulations and the healthcare system is strictly regulated. While pharmaceutical companies must always expect setbacks, especially in accelerated approval procedures, the situation is different for suppliers of medical technology or consumables. We present three stocks that are benefiting from rising healthcare spending.

Pfizer, Q&M Dental Group, Johnson & Johnson: Where do profiteers of the pandemic lurk?

We all know that one's health is the most important thing. But from time to time, this truism slips out of focus. The pandemic has shown that neither fame nor money can protect you from getting sick. A big step toward being healthy, however, can be made by trusting in research. The development of vaccines in record time has shown how great the potential is in science and the pharmaceutical industry. New test methods are continually coming onto the market. Three shares show that there is money to be made on the stock market from these developments.
