  • Healthcare

The healthcare sector is facing a reassessment. For years, especially in Germany, health care has been "fiddled with" - a reform here, a change there, but in basic terms, little has changed in the system in recent years. With the new federal government, things could start to move. Regardless of ideological trench warfare, observers can state, especially under the impression of the pandemic, that innovative treatment methods and preventive care are the most important trends for the future, along with the digitization of the healthcare system. In this context, we present three companies and highlight their opportunities.

    MorphoSys: Here's how investors can act

    When it comes to innovative treatment methods, many private investors think of MorphoSys. The Company has been accompanying German investors for years. Above all, MorphoSys impresses with its antibody library, which is the largest of its kind in the world. In addition to cancer, the Martinsried-based Company also focuses on Alzheimer's disease and rheumatism. MorphoSys caused a stir with lower revenues and a loss of just over EUR 20 million in the first half of the year. Despite - or perhaps because of - the weak figures, the Company decided to acquire in the summer: With Constellation Pharmaceuticals, the Company is strengthening its pipeline of potential cancer drugs.

    Having good cards in hand is vital for MorphoSys. The share price lost almost 60% last year, and over the previous three months alone, it fell by around 37%. Since the big breakthroughs have failed to materialize in recent months, one or the other investor may have switched to the new listed competitor of BioNTech. Although these shares are also volatile, there is always an upward trend in between the turbulence. MorphoSys lacks this dynamism completely. The stock is currently of little interest.

    Sativa Wellness Group: Turnaround stock stands on strong legs

    Sativa Wellness Group is more active in the field of self-therapy and wellness. The Company is built on the three pillars of cannabidiol (CBD), laboratory services related to the active ingredient from the hemp plant, and other wellness products. Studies by the Brightfield Group state that the British market for CBD products can grow at double-digit rates in the coming years. Since Sativa Wellness is already positioned in the market and scores with good quality at fair prices, the Company could secure a share of this market.

    The latest figures also show that Sativa Wellness is well received by customers. The first quarter was the best in terms of sales. In the second quarter, the Company even went one better and scored with a positive cash flow. This cash flow is intended to enable the Company to seize inorganic growth opportunities in the future. Most recently, Sativa Wellness announced plans to offer telemedicine consulting services through its wellness division. This area could also be promising given the growing awareness of health. The stock has been trading sideways for months, eking out an existence as a penny stock. However, speculative investors should put the stock on the watch list given the encouraging figures and the expansion into new business areas.

    A bitter pill for CureVac

    The fact that new active ingredients and processes in the biotech sector always carry a speculative element is demonstrated by the CureVac share. After failing to bring a vaccine against Covid-19 to market, the stock began to sell-off. Even the hope of future success is currently not priced in by the market. The share is currently trading around 18% lower than a year ago. The three short-term excursions above the EUR 100 mark are a warning to investors who expect too much from the share. Currently, the air is out, and even lower prices are possible below EUR 40.

    The fate of CureVac and the long dry spell of MorphoSys show that the development of new active substances is anything but easy. On the other hand, Sativa Wellness is well positioned with its CBD products and the mainstay of having one of the leading laboratories around the active ingredient in its portfolio. While the companies are hardly comparable, the recent turnaround at Sativa could soon appeal to more investors.

    Manuka Resources, Fresenius, Amazon - Gold to offset economic dismantling and restriction measures?

    For decades, the annual production of gold has been increasing. In 2020, a total of 3200 tonnes of gold was produced, with China as the largest gold producer in the world, followed by Australia and Russia. Manuka Resources is an explorer and gold producer in Australia. The Company has now developed a 3-year gold production plan to give its shareholders the most value possible. A solid precious metal like gold can provide balance in turbulent times. Fresenius, for example, is in the midst of a turnaround and is reporting its first results. Things can get tight for Amazon, Microsoft and Alphabet if the EU enforces its new cybersecurity directives - but this can also turn out to be an advantage.

    While WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus sees the end of the Corona pandemic within reach, companies like BioNTech have more products in the pipeline to bring successful drugs to market. In order to ensure that this happens thoroughly and more quickly, Canadian company Defence Therapeutics is stepping up to shorten development cycles with a unique platform technology in oncology. Cancer has still not been eradicated. An end, however, is in sight for Amazon's in-house healthcare division. Amazon Care is closing its doors at the end of the year, but the Seattle-based corporation still cannot let go of the lucrative healthcare business...

    BioNTech, NervGen, Sanofi - The rebound is on the way

    Uncertainties remain. Admittedly, infection figures are falling in the Corona pandemic and should ensure a quiet summer in this respect. In addition to inflation remaining at a high level, the Ukraine conflict moved to the front news pages. It has caused panic and strong sales on the stock markets in recent weeks. After the DAX marked another interim low at around 13,500 points yesterday, the stock market barometer turned around but is struggling with the psychologically important mark at 14,000 points. Now the quarterly season has begun, which could provide positive impetus. Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank started it off and were quite convincing.
