Booster for the BioNTech share: BASF and Defense Metals with momentum?

  • RareEarths
  • Biotechnology

The swing market continues to keep investors on their toes. On Tuesday, encouraging economic data and the prospect of an imminent end to the lockdowns in China ensured a good mood and significantly rising prices. The speech by Fed Chairman Powell could not change this. Only one day later, the euphoria has already faded, and the statements of the central bank chief are being interpreted negatively. Powell had reiterated the Fed's determination to fight inflation. Therefore, operational impulses are needed for shares to rise again. BioNTech's stock got a small boost from the FDA's approval of its Corona vaccine as a booster shot for ages 5-11. But analysts are waiting for more. At Defense Metals, investors hope for more from today's CEO presentation after solid drilling results. At BASF, several analysts are reducing price targets at once and see possible additional costs in the billions.

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.

Big percentages thanks to platform strategy: Amazon.com, Defence Therapeutics, Nordex

  • Biotech

A central principle of the platform economy is to bring together different user groups and thus create synergies. What sounds a bit dry quickly becomes interesting, especially from an investor's point of view. For example, when different car models are based on one and the same platform, or when several diseases can be effectively combated thanks to one and the same technology. The unique aspect for investors: If these synergies come to fruition and a business succeeds in scaling, high returns are possible. We cite three stocks as examples.

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.

Cardiol Therapeutics, Tesla, Bayer AG - Instead of trading chronically overvalued shares, treat the chronically ill instead

  • Biotechnology

No sooner does the US government under Biden seek to influence the Supreme Court in the Monsanto case than the Bayer share slides 7%. But is this share price slide justified? Bayer AG has made provisions for the possible ruling in June and set aside reserves for chronic diseases. Chronic diseases are also a focus of Cardiol Therapeutics. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of chronic diseases increased by 57% worldwide by 2020. Cardiol focuses on heart health in this regard. The share stands at about EUR 1.12 and is seen by analysts at an average of about EUR 7. Meanwhile, Tesla investors are currently experiencing what overvalued shares can do to their portfolios. Their CEO is speculating that he will no longer accept new customers. Why? You can read about it here...

BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

  • Gold
  • Electromobility
  • Biotechnology

Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

Biotech stocks: Defence Therapeutics, BioNTech, BASF - Advantage through platform technology

  • Biotechnology

Large corporations such as BASF were previously considered safe portfolio investments. But the war in Ukraine is throwing a spanner in the works. Force majeure, such as war, can cause deals to fall through without the responsibility of the companies involved. How should investors react now? Which portfolio strategy can keep up with the high volatility of the markets? Newcomers like BioNTech face oversupply and have to accept shortages. A focus on emerging markets seems to be the solution for their growth strategy. But there are subtle differences in the vaccines business, as Defence Therapeutics proves.

Bayer, NervGen, Adler Group - Pharma and Real Estate, management in focus

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma
  • Investments

Corporate giant Bayer is collaborating with Charité Berlin to cure genetic diseases in the future. A paradox? Big Pharma thrives on alleviating symptoms but not curing diseases. Things will soon look different. The biotech company NervGen is also dedicated to curing diseases. The approach here: reverse degenerative nerve conditions through self-healing. Specifically, this means helping individuals with paraplegia who are wheelchair-bound reconnect their neural pathways. The Company is in the clinical trials phase and was started by a co-founder who witnessed a dramatic accident. One cannot speak of an accident at the real estate company Adler Group. Four board members have resigned after auditor KPMG refused to give its OK for the annual financial statements. Can management regain the confidence of shareholders?

Biotech-Investments also work conservatively: BioNTech, XPhyto, Valneva

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma
  • Covid19

Biotech stocks are often seen as all-or-nothing investments - either a bet works out, or the companies disappear into oblivion. But innovative companies in the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors do not always operate in just one area. They are not always spectacular projects that are dependent on approval procedures. We outline the investment opportunities around three well-known biotech stocks.
