Health is the highest good. Anyone who has ever experienced people having the "plug pulled" on them overnight can undoubtedly relate to this truism. Fortunately, medicine in this country is able to provide a quick remedy. A wide range of options are available for both diagnosis and therapy. In addition to laboratory analyses, imaging procedures also ensure that disease patterns can be narrowed down and, thus, treatments can be carried out in a targeted manner. Although our drugs are already powerful, new, more innovative approaches are emerging all the time. This development is also benefiting investors.

    Siemens Healthineers: Here is where Qatar comes in

    Siemens Healthineers is primarily responsible for imaging and other diagnostic equipment. The Company from the Siemens Group has been independently listed on the stock exchange since 2018. Since then, the development has been positive - the share has increased by around 50%. The trend at Siemens Healthineers is also pointing upward in the short term. Although the pandemic has caused many routine examinations to be postponed, which has also had a negative impact on Siemens Healthineers' figures, there should certainly be catch-up effects over the summer months, which are relatively quiet from an epidemiological point of view.

    With the Qatar sovereign wealth fund, Siemens Healthineers has a more than solid anchor shareholder. The emirate's investment vehicle recently participated in a capital increase that Siemens Healthineers launched to acquire cancer specialist Varian. The Company is thus realigning itself step by step and occupying promising markets. Siemens Healthineers also has its fingers in the pie when it comes to the rapid test business. With fall approaching, this business should pick up again. The stock is solid but not a high flyer.

    Cardiol Therapeutics: A matter of the heart for investors?

    An exceedingly exciting stock for any investor looking for momentum is Cardiol Therapeutics. The Company works with the active ingredient Cannabidiol (CBD) to address inflammatory heart disease in particular. In addition to the pharmacy-only CBD product Cortalex™, which has been available exclusively through the Canadian retail chain Shoppers' pharmacy portal since 2020, the Company is also researching cardiac medications. The elderly, in particular, get the extremely pure cannabidiol recommended by their doctors.

    The CardiolRx product is currently undergoing a Phase II/III FDA clinical program to evaluate the beneficial cardiovascular properties of cannabidiol in Covid-19 patients with pre-existing conditions. In addition to oral dosage forms, Cardiol is also working on subcutaneous administrations and plans to launch a study of its compound for acute myocarditis in the third quarter. This disease can sometimes affect young people or athletes who have not rested sufficiently after a simple infection. Although a diagnosed myocarditis usually heals without consequences in these patients and with sufficient rest, complications and secondary damage, such as heart failure, can also occur. At this point, the administration of CardiolRX could protect the vessels. Cardiol Therapeutics intends to investigate this effect. The stock has come back after soaring in the first quarter, also due to a capital increase that the Company recently carried out. Analysts at GBC Investment Research see the stock as promising, with a price target of CAD 15.77, and consider the stock a potential takeover target in the event of positive study results. The listing on the Nasdaq, which has already been applied for, should also bring Cardiol Therapeutics new attention. The stock is still speculative after its correction but also promising.

    CureVac: What comes after the crash?

    The CureVac share has also corrected significantly. The reason lies in unsatisfactory study results around the vaccine against Covid-19, which was less effective than comparable vaccines. To some extent, CureVac may also have been a victim of the study design and the new virus variants. Representatives of the Company still believe approval is possible. It is also undisputed among experts that CureVac has great competence around the innovative mRNA process. For this reason, the share was also considered a comeback candidate after its slump. But the comeback failed to materialize. Since the stock is more likely to move back towards the lows, there is no pressure to act here. The fantasy is gone.


    CureVac is now being viewed somewhat critically by the market, and Siemens Healthineers is more of a long-term, solid investment for investors such as Qatar's sovereign wealth fund. The shares of Cardiol Therapeutics could offer speculative potential within a narrowly defined timeframe. Its clinical trials are already underway, and it has applied for uplisting to Nasdaq. The capital increase is also through, and the share price has consolidated. The stock could have the potential for positive surprises by the end of the year.

    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?

    BrainChip and Palantir with strong rebound - How does BioNTech react?

    The correction on the stock markets has been going on for months. Technology stocks, in particular, have been hit hard. Due to the end of the ultra-loose monetary policy and possible larger interest rate steps, even market leaders lost more than 80% of their ground in some cases. Whether interest rate hikes can be implemented as planned in the coming months, on the other hand, appears more than questionable. After all, the spectre of recession is already hovering over the capital markets. Moreover, the historical debt levels of several countries are likely to rule out further interest rate hikes.

    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.
