How long will vaccine shares benefit from the hype?
The share of the Mainz-based biotech company BioNTech leads the top of the most executed orders again today. On Tradegate, the share can show 3,137 orders so far. At a price of EUR 184.05, the share is trading 4.46% down. Valneva's stock last traded at EUR 16.61, down 2.92%.
Cannabis can prevent viral infection
Oregon State University researchers this week presented their research report titled "Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants." According to the report, researchers found that two cannabinoid acids, cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), found in cannabis, can bind to the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes covid-19.
Biotech company Cardiol Therapeutics is also relying on cannabidiol in its development of therapeutic options for heart problems. The company received a USD 50 million cash injection in November 2021, allowing it to move forward with clinical trials. Treatment of myocarditis may also be among the company's future therapies. In light of the fact that myocarditis is also one of the side effects of current vaccination campaigns around the globe, a successful completion of the clinical trial would be in the public interest. It is possible that investors will soon switch from vaccine shares. Cardiol's share was last quoted at EUR 1.58 and can gain 2.60%. The analysts at GBC Research recommend the share as a buy with a price target of CAD 17.49.
More information is expected from the company at the International Investment Forum (IIF), on Feb. 17, 2022. (Free to attend: ii-forum.com).
