Even after Corona, the biotech sector remains an interesting investment sector because it is still important to keep an eye on the major widespread diseases. For many companies, this will probably mean a longer waiting game for investors. In addition to the promising research approaches and milestone plans, the cash reserves of these companies are also important. While having ample funding can lead to quick progress in the laboratory, it is crucial to have the necessary liquidity. In refinancing, however, things have become a little frostier since the rise in interest rates. Which companies should be put under the microscope?Read

Due to the stricter monetary policy of the central banks and inflation concerns, the capital-intensive biotech sector is also suffering. The NASDAQ Biotechnology Index has lost almost a quarter of its value since the beginning of the stock market year. In addition, the number of companies trading even below their cash levels is higher than ever. At the same time, as can be seen with vaccine manufacturers, the industry is becoming increasingly important in everyday life. Especially in cancer research, some companies have the opportunity to multiply in the coming years based on their product pipeline.Read

The stock markets are reeling, and uncertainties and tensions have increased in recent days. Thus, not only did the stock market corrected, but the DAX sank again significantly below the 13,000 mark due to the stop of gas deliveries via Nord Stream 1, and other asset classes such as precious metals, cryptocurrencies and even oil dropped significantly. Nevertheless, even in the bear market, there are companies that can shine with excellent reports and should be among the winners in a possible upward movement.Read

Finding the next BioNTech: MorphoSys, XPhyto Therapeutics, Formycon - Who will make the breakthrough?
The Mainz-based biotech Company BioNTech has shown the way with Cormirnaty®: stringent research and adherence to milestones ultimately lead to success. The main and founding investors Strüngmann are still on board as long-term investors with over 40% even after the price correction. The mRNA technology is now mutating into the basis for a whole new class of drugs, and BioNTech could thus become a new German pharmaceutical giant. The brothers from Tegernsee know what they are talking about. Their start-up capital came from the first major exit after they sold their generic drug manufacturer Hexal, founded in 1979, to Novartis for EUR 5.65 billion in 2005. Since then, they have continued to invest in biotechnology through their family office. The challenge is to find the next BioNTech.Read

A look at the NASDAQ Biotechnology Index shows that the big hype on biotech companies seems to be over for now. Since September 2021, the index has been falling, repeatedly marking new lows. However, this decline can also be seen as an opportunity because the long-term prospects for the industry are good. People are getting older, and with age comes the diseases that want to be fought. Today we look at three companies with a lot of potential for the future.Read

The pharmaceutical industry proved to be a key industry in the Corona pandemic, developing tests, vaccines and drugs at record speed and making them available in large quantities. In the process, biotechnology emerged as the innovative engine. The development of new compounds is particularly important for the pharmaceutical industry, as patent protection for many blockbuster drugs will expire in the future or has already expired. For this reason, the pharmaceutical industry is now entering biotechs much more frequently in the early development phases of a new drug. As a result, early-stage development companies already offer opportunities for multiplication.Read

Due to various public easing measures, the Corona pandemic is increasingly fading into the background. It has long been a hot ride for the stock market, especially for vaccine producers, but now investors are shifting their focus to other stocks in the biotech segment. After all, there are still many diseases that confront humanity with unresolved mysteries, and the field of human medical research seems endless. We focus on interesting stocks from the sector, which corrected strongly in the wake of the Ukraine downturn but are now trending north again. These trends are still in their infancy.Read
