CureVac, BioNTech, Valeo Pharma: Where is there still potential?

The race for vaccines against Covid-19 is fierce. Every day there are new water level reports - from setbacks to breakthroughs, everything is there. The Tübingen-based Company CureVac recently started its phase study IIa in Peru and Panama. Around 700 people are taking part in it. The study aims to find suitable dosages for the vaccine. To this end, test persons are vaccinated twice within 28 days. Other competitors, such as BioNTech, are already testing their vaccine on more volunteers. BioNTech recently started its phase III study in South Africa and is testing the vaccine on more than 40,000 people worldwide.

CureVac and BioNTech: There will be losers

That the race for a vaccine is fierce is also shown by the share prices. All vaccine shares received advanced praise in the first half of the year, and some shares rose significantly. However, CureVac has been running into sand for a few days now - the stock lost around 4% within five days. Although the share price development is of little relevance, as the Company only went public during the pandemic and is therefore ambitiously valued, there are increasing signs of weakness.

The BioNTech share has not got off the ground lately. This performance may be bearable given the 540% increase in value within one year, but investors are rightly asking themselves how things will continue with vaccination shares. The foreign competition seems to have managed - also thanks to laxer approval procedures - to overtake German companies. According to Russia, it has already developed a second vaccine. The Chinese supplier Sinopharm now offers students an experimental vaccine free of charge. Almost 500,000 test persons have already been vaccinated. The measures aim to increase confidence in the vaccine.

There will be several vaccines in the future, and the preparations from Russia and China, which are being fast-tracked, will not render competition for established biotech companies in Europe and the USA. There will also be losers in the race for the best vaccines, especially for stocks like CureVac and also BioNTech, as the drop could be from a high level. For investors, it may make sense to step out of the race for the vaccine and think about alternatives.

A healthy immune system not only helps with Covid-19

The pandemic proves that a functioning immune system can not only make the difference between life and death in the worst-case scenario but also helps to ward off diseases completely. The Canadian Company Valeo Pharma is focused on the commercialization of Hesperco™, a dietary supplement containing a highly effective antioxidant intended to support the immune system. It was approved by the Canadian authorities a few weeks ago, and three days ago, Valeo Pharma announced that it had begun shipping the product. The capsules will be available at all major retailers in Canada in early November.

Valeo Pharma is at the beginning of its investment story

Valeo Pharma is working with Ingenew Pharma in the development, production, and distribution of the new dietary supplement, which provides all the necessary scientific data on the new product. In addition to Hesperco™, Valeo Pharma offers prescription drugs and focuses on neurodegenerative diseases, oncological products, and special hospital needs. Although Valeo Pharma's share price has also recently had to give up its feathers, the Company is still at the beginning of its investment story. The small Canadian Company has not yet received any advance praise from the market, such as CureVac or BioNTech. Nevertheless, the stock could benefit indirectly from the pandemic.

InnoCan Pharma, Cardiol Therapeutics, BevCanna - Watch out: undiscovered cannabis price rockets!

  • Biotechnology

Whether French explorer Jacques Cartier, who first named the region around present-day Quebec "Canada" in 1535, was acting on a hunch, or simply "Frenching" the word "Kanata" from the language of the Saint Lawrence Iroquois, can unfortunately no longer be determined with certainty today. However, what is certain is that today's "Canada" is the current stronghold of medical "cannabis." Thanks to liberal laws, hemp startups are sprouting up worldwide, and even established companies want a piece of the pie. Here are three interesting candidates for the portfolio, with current news and powerful price potential!

BioNTech, Formycon, Psybio Therapeutics: A chance for normality?

  • Biotechnology

It is a matter of course: The desire for normality! Things have not been normal over the last 12 months, which everyone is now feeling. Our society has had a lot to shoulder since the turn of the millennium. The extreme increase in radicalism, the emergence of dangerous dictators and incompetent politicians, the polarization of beliefs, the explosive development of wealth in shares and real estate owners with simultaneous global impoverishment, the excessive indebtedness of the states, and now, a worldwide pandemic of unimagined proportions. It takes a good deal of imagination to believe in a "normalization" and then a more philosophical question quickly arises: What does an economic reality with and after the pandemic look like?
