Cost pressure in the healthcare system - how you benefit: Bayer, BioNxt, BioNTech
What do you think of the German healthcare system? While doctors regularly grumble about bureaucracy and patients about long waiting times or other inconsistencies, a new divide is opening up between pharmaceutical companies. Research-based pharmaceutical companies favour long patent protection, while generics manufacturers want more lax rules. We explain the system and highlight opportunities for investors.Read

BioNxt Solutions, Bayer, BioNTech - These pharma stocks offer growth potential
The risk of cancer is increasing worldwide for people over the age of 50. The reasons for this are lack of sleep and exercise, pre-existing diseases and poor nutrition. It has now also been scientifically proven that permanent stress is a cause of Parkinson's disease. According to the WHO, disabilities and deaths due to Parkinson's are increasing faster worldwide than for any other neurological disease. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies are doing everything they can to improve the quality of life of those affected. The Canadian biotech company BioNxt is working on a comparative study to improve a therapy patch for treating Parkinson's and make accompanying drug products scalable. Bayer subsidiary Bluerock Therapeutics is using data from the Apple Watch to research Parkinson's symptoms. And CEO Uğur Şahin of BioNTech has closed a billion-dollar deal in cancer therapy.Read

Evotec, Defence Therapeutics, Morphosys - Movement in the biotech sector
Is a new wave of takeovers starting in the biotech sector? Already last year, acquisitions by Big Pharma were expected to increase, but these largely failed to materialize. However, this could accelerate in the current year. On the one hand, pharmaceutical companies, such as vaccine manufacturer Pfizer, have deep pockets and need new innovations for their product portfolio; on the other hand, second-tier stocks are attractive targets due to the strong correction.Read

Takeover speculation at Defence Therapeutics! What are BioNTech, Morphosys, and Evotec doing?
Defence Therapeutics is one of the biotech high flyers of the past months. The share has more than doubled since October. And this could be just the beginning. Operationally, things are going well, a strong partner has been acquired, and experts are speculating about a takeover. And what are the German biotechs doing? At BioNTech, it will be exciting at the end of March, because the Mainz-based company needs new blockbusters. At Morphosys, analysts recently saw further downside potential. Will a new management board bring about a turnaround? Evotec also had little positive to report. However, an AI investment in the hype surrounding ChatGPT is making headlines.Read

Bayer, BioNxt, BioNTech - Biotech is on the rise again, bring on the blockbusters!
The time of the vaccine producers is over because the willingness to vaccinate is declining worldwide. As a result, the entire biotech sector has entered a strong correction phase since the pandemic mode for COVID-19 ended. In the process, sector leader BioNTech suffered a loss of over 70% from its high. Complicating matters for companies is the significant increase in interest rates for long-term financing of their pipelines. When refinancing costs rise, this often leads to lower valuations. However, some companies are impressing with their innovations and have recently shown significant outperformance to the market. We evaluate the opportunities of some well-known biotech protagonists!Read

Defeat cancer! Defence Therapeutics, BioNTech, Morphosys, Bayer - These biotechs are close
The listed biotechnology sector has entered a strong correction phase since the COVID-19 pandemic mode ended. In the process, sector leader BioNTech suffered a loss of over 70% from its high. Compounding the problem for companies is the significant increase in interest rates for long-term financing. The segment relies on revolving investor capital, but the corresponding risk parameters have been adjusted upward, making some refinancings extremely expensive. Costs are rising, which is leading to renewed price markdowns. However, some companies are convincing through their innovative strength and have recently outperformed the market. We take a closer look at the blockbuster stocks.Read

BioNTech, Pfizer, Bayer and BioNxt Solutions on the biotech takeover merry-go-round
2023 could become the year of takeovers in the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors. This is what the experts at PwC expect. Thus, at the JP Morgan industry conference in San Francisco, not only were takeover candidates discussed but billion-dollar transactions were reported. One reason is the Inflation Reduction Act in the USA. This allows negotiations on drug prices. To prevent sales declines, Big Pharma must invest in new top sellers. And it is already doing so. The latest takeover rumor comes from BioNTech partner Pfizer. At BioNTech, the negative news currently outweighs the positive. Whether Bayer will take action with the boss or be taken over itself is not yet entirely clear. But there are also opportunities for investors in the smallcap sector. Take BioNxt Solutions, for example - the Canadian company with its operational focus in Germany recently secured new patents, and the share price has jumped.Read

BioNTech, BioNxt Solutions, Bayer - Turn of the tide
Just how fundamental biotechnology already is for humanity was demonstrated by the development of the various COVID vaccines, which was extremely rapid by historical standards. Previously unknown companies such as BioNTech, Valneva and CureVac came into the focus of the stock market and were able to multiply within a very short time. Even after the pandemic has ended, research in the biotech sector is running at full speed. This is giving rise to new, innovative growth companies that could follow a similar trajectory in the future.Read

Election winners in the fight against cancer! Bayer, Defence Therapeutics, Formycon, Valneva - 300% rises are possible!
In 2021, 18.7 million people received the shocking diagnosis of "cancer". Current trends, unfortunately, suggest that this number will continue to rise in the coming years.

It is a matter of developing suitable active substances or launching modern therapies. Recently, mRNA technology has also been making a name for itself in cancer prevention.

Takeover fever around biotechs - Bayer's reaction, purchase candidates BioNxt and Morphosys?
Something is happening in the biotech sector: several global players are looking for potential acquisition targets. Above all, pharmaceutical companies focusing on the US are seeing their chances of survival dwindle in light of the Inflation Reduction Act. If drug prices are to fall, new products must be developed or costs cut elsewhere. We take a look at the industry and do a takeover check.Read
