    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.

    It Is hard to believe! The Tesla share is once again making a name for itself. Analysts went into the presentation of the annual figures with cautious expectations because there were many negative rumors surrounding Elon Musk's electronics company: Fewer sales? Cars on stockpile? Again, it came as no one had expected it. Elon Musk delivered and simultaneously mocked all the shorties who wanted to push his stock below USD 100 at the turn of the year. This gambit went badly wrong because Tesla was able to deliver even better figures than expected, and there was no stopping the share. With plus 70% in only 4 weeks, the Tesla share belongs to the shooting stars since the turn of the year - the short sellers must have lost their desire completely. But the variety of interesting shares is significant. Where are the opportunities for e-investors lurking?

    Who would have thought it? Since the beginning of the year, the stock markets have been jubilant despite difficult predictions about the economic trend in 2023. High inflation and rising interest rates are not a good breeding ground for the popular biotech stocks because they have to constantly refinance their research expenses. As the risk fee is readjusted as costs rise, investors demand higher premiums for providing money. However, some biotech stocks have taken off since the beginning of the year despite adverse conditions. What is their secret?
