Biotech blockbusters: BioNTech, XPhyto Therapeutics, Valneva, CureVac - What to expect from these stocks?

  • Biotechnology

Now that we have arrived in summer, the pandemic is weakening, and the media presence of the flu disease is also declining. That means less attention for pure-play vaccine makers, and now investors are asking how perhaps alternative money can be made. Is the pipeline of the protagonists strong enough to attract further investor capital, or will the whole industry go underground for the time being? We try our hand at being a truffle pig and dig beneath the surface. Which biotech stock has something up its sleeve?

Takeover fantasy: +50% in Valneva shares, and what are BioNTech and Defence Therapeutics doing?

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

Tension is rising in the biotech sector as the takeover merry-go-round spins faster and has now hit Valneva. Pfizer's entry caused the stock to explode 50% in three trading days. Earlier, Pfizer had announced it would acquire migraine specialist Biohaven for USD 11.6 billion. Other pharmaceutical giants are also active: Halozyme wants to swallow Antares Pharma, a specialist in urology and endocrinology, for USD 960 million. The acquisition of Sierra Oncology is costing GlaxoSmithKline around USD 1.9 billion. Like Valneva, Defence Therapeutics is about to start important trials and could attract a major partner. A takeover of BioNTech is unlikely, but the flagship German biotech should also benefit from improved sentiment in the industry. The coming week should be operationally exciting for shareholders.

Market-independent returns? This is how it's done! Valneva, NervGen, BioNTech

  • Biotechnology

When the stock market is in high gear, it is time for cool heads. Even if many managers are suspected of only having an eye on the next few quarters, there are still some decisions with far-reaching consequences, especially in the case of takeovers and mergers. Most recently, Pfizer acquired a stake in the vaccine manufacturer Valneva. The share price performance to date did not suggest such a step. Here is why the decision could still pay off for shareholders and what signal effect the deal will have.

BioNTech, NervGen Pharma, Valneva - Which stock will make the breakthrough in incurable diseases?

  • Biotechnology

The number of cancer patients increases every year, and only if the disease is detected at an early stage might a cure still be possible. With other diseases such as multiple sclerosis or Alzheimer's, there is no chance of a cure at all. The deterioration progresses slowly and unstoppably. COVID-19 has also shown us how vulnerable humanity is to a virus. But many biotech companies have taken up the fight against these diseases. Any drug that can stop the progression of these diseases would help those affected. Many biotech stocks have corrected significantly recently. Today we take a look at three companies and their existing potential against incurable diseases.

Valneva, Defence Therapeutics, Bayer - Blockbusters: Turbos for your share portfolio!

  • Biotechnology
  • Vaccination

Blockbusters are drugs with which companies generate sales of more than USD 1 billion per year. Corona vaccines are currently an integral part of the global hit list. But also many application areas in different cancer fields or cardiovascular diseases offer a large market worth billions. Like BioNTech, a company with the right pipeline and the resulting compounds can quickly evolve from a start-up into an established and profitable player.

Watch out: BioNTech, NervGen, MorphoSys, Valneva: Biotech shares in check!

  • Biotechnology
  • biopharma

The initial sell-off in biotech stocks seems to have been digested. With last week's NASDAQ turn, spring air is now moving through the stock markets again. That is because many investors realize that, in the face of a multitude of new diseases, a major research effort is needed to protect humanity from the burgeoning dangers. Financing via the stock market was correspondingly easy for the biotech giants during the last pandemic because investors sensed big profits in the event of success. This picture is likely to repeat itself in the next movement. Where are the current opportunities in the biopharma sector?

  • Biotechnology
  • Monkeypox

The Corona pandemic is not over yet, but we should already prepare for future viruses. The next pandemic will come. When it will come is uncertain, and so is which pathogen will we have to deal with. Monkeypox is now spreading globally, and there are already the first cases in Germany. We find out what is known so far, where the dangers lie and what opportunities there are for the biotechnology sector from Dr Moutih Rafei, a renowned pharmacologist and head of research and development at the innovative company Defence Therapeutics Inc.

Amazon, Edgemont Gold, Valneva - The real gold wins

  • Gold
  • Inflation
  • Biotech

Only 'cash is king' seems to be the motto of this stock market week. High inflation is bringing tech stocks to their knees, and heavy artillery is also being brought to bear on Valneva's dead vaccine development front. The EU Commission wants to cancel the preliminary contract if the vaccine is not finally delivered within a month. Depth is also to be expected at Edgemont Gold, only this time, good things are hidden there. The gold exploration company is getting promising results from its third drill hole.

Biotech stocks: BioNTech, XPhyto Therapeutics, Novavax, Valneva - Crashing, the choice remains difficult!

  • Biotechnology
  • Covid19

For pure play vaccine companies, the environment is getting tougher. On the one hand, the winter is over, and on the other, Corona has lost its horrors, especially as the Omicron variant presented like a cold for most infected people. 77.6% of the German population have received at least one vaccination dose so far. 63.1 million people have thus already received basic immunization, and 49.5 million people went for another shot. Only 4.6 million people, or 5.5%, have already received a second booster vaccination. 18.6 million people have not been vaccinated, or 22.4% of the population. With currently only 4,000 vaccinations per day, the many millions of vaccine doses ordered are likely to remain on the shelf. For vaccine manufacturers, future orders will plummet. Which Company has a plan B in place?

Alzheimer's share? Ask the CEO! Valneva, NervGen Pharma, Bayer

  • Biotech
  • Pharma

High blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and Alzheimer's disease are scourges of our time. As people in industrialized countries grow older, it becomes increasingly likely that they will also suffer from one of these diseases. While there is likely to be a genetic predisposition for all of the ailments mentioned, lifestyle also plays a role. Lack of exercise and obesity often leads first to high blood pressure, then to diabetes, and ultimately to even worse conditions. In the event of a pandemic, all people with such pre-existing conditions belong to a high-risk group. Reason enough to take a closer look at stocks related to these issues and ask how investors can profit.
