At a price of EUR 157.15, the share is trading 6.21% lower than the previous day, continuing its downward trend.

    Long-Covid share: Cardiol develops therapies for heart problems

    The shares of Cardiol Therapeutics continue the price increase of the past days since the opening on the home exchange in Toronto. At CAD 2.91, the stock is trading up 3.2%. The company focuses on the therapy of heart disease and relies on natural active ingredients from the cannabis plant. Clinical trials are expected to confirm the success.

    In recent months, reports of heart problems in athletes have increased. According to media reports, the cause of these problems is often related to a Covid-19 infection. Names such as Alphonso Davies (FC Bayern Munich), Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Axel Méyé (IR Tangier) and Mario Lemina (OGC Nice) have had to take a break since last week due to heart problems following a Corona infection.

    The mentioned top athletes are certainly only the tip of the iceberg and the potential of Long-Covid shares is accordingly high. The experts at GBC Research recommend Cardiol's stock as a buy with a price target of CAD 17.49. Additional analysts recommend the shares. Canaccord with rating 'Buy' and Cantor Fitzgerald with 'Overweight' independently see a price target of USD 8.00 ≈ CAD 10.00.

    Up to 200% share price potential: Kion, BioNTech, Aspermont in analyst check

    The profit warning was a shock for Kion shareholders. Accordingly, the share price halved to EUR 20 in September alone. Now analysts are also slashing their estimates. The price targets for the forklift manufacturer are falling accordingly. Berenberg surprises with a high price target for the BioNTech share. At the same time, the analysts emphasize their hope for a continued generous dividend. Shareholders could thus be kept in good spirits until the next blockbuster. The roadshow of Aspermont in Germany has probably also created a good mood. At least the share price has jumped. The current consolidation could be an entry opportunity. Analysts see a price potential of over 200%.

Recent examples include battery manufacturer Varta and real estate financier Hypoport, which had to withdraw their annual targets.
