CureVac, BioNTech, Novavax, XPhyto Therapeutics - The Covid giants and the sellout!

  • Biotechnology

How quickly the tide can turn in the environment of the Corona pandemic can be seen in the vaccine manufacturers and test providers. BioNTech's share price has been rising steadily since the start of the vaccination campaign in Germany, and minor reports of potential side effects are hardly disturbing. In the case of test provider NanoRepro, the bull market of recent months is turning into a total sell-off, with the share losing over 70%. And then there is the Tübingen-based biotech Company CureVac. Delays in approval and a shock on efficacy send the share down by a whole 50% in one day. We take a closer look at the situation.

CureVac, Cardiol Therapeutics, Bayer: Healthcare for the portfolio

  • Biotechnology

Biotechnology and pharmacology offer us great opportunities. For decades, the world has suffered from a few serious diseases: cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes and others. Where previously only symptoms were treated, there is now the prospect of a cure thanks to new processes. Even if it still takes a little time to reach market maturity: the innovative companies are already on the market, investors can invest.

Bayer, Defence Therapeutics, MorphoSys - A paradigm shift in biotechnology

  • Biotechnology

The search for a vaccine against the Coronavirus brought biotechnology back into the focus of investors last year. Companies such as BioNTech or CureVac were able to multiply in this regard. In 2020, the biotech sector in Germany raised a record sum of EUR 3 billion, and the trend is rising sharply. The fight against incurable diseases and the development of important innovations such as vaccines, cancer therapies, or sustainable products lift the segment into higher realms and offer attractive investment opportunities.

CureVac, Cardiol Therapeutics, Formycon, NanoRepro - Pharma stocks with potential!

  • Biotechnology

In Germany, around 231,000 people died as a result of cancer in 2019. As reported by the Federal Statistical Office, cancer was the cause of a quarter of all deaths. This proportion has hardly changed within 20 years, even though the number of cancer deaths has increased by around 10% since 1999. The precise number 1 cause of widespread disease in Germany is cardiovascular disease, such as heart failure, coronary heart disease and myocardial infarction. With 18.2 million deaths, they represented the most common cause of death worldwide in 2019. In Europe, more than 4 million people die each year due to such a disease, 1.4 million of whom are younger than 75. So research continues to be in demand. We look at interesting representatives of the industry.

Defence Therapeutics, CureVac, BioNTech: Vaccine against cancer makes progress

  • Biotechnology

Biotechnology is the map to the holy grail that needs to be found as quickly as possible for many sick people. When the pandemic broke out last year, it accelerated some developments. For example, mRNA technology, which BioNTech and CureVac had already been researching, was successfully launched as a vaccine technology. It is well known that this can be used to develop effective vaccines against coronaviruses and target diseases such as cancer. BioNTech has this option in mind and holds good cards to succeed with it. The young biotech startup Defence Therapeutics has also recently reported its first successes in the fight against cancer.

BioNTech, PsyBio, Bayer: The opportunities of tomorrow

  • Biotech

Even after the pandemic, there will be no "business as usual" in the healthcare system, as shown by a survey conducted a few months ago by the Barmer Institute for Health Research. The scientists surveyed called for far-reaching reforms. In addition to billing and uniform rules, digitization could also be a key to meaningful reforms. Innovative drugs also play a role when it comes to treating Covid-19 and concomitant diseases.

CureVac, Cardiol, MorphoSys - Huge sensation in the fight against Corona!

  • Biotechnology

The biotechnology sector gained tremendous attention since the start of the Corona pandemic. With vaccine makers such as BioNTech or Moderna, investors have achieved returns beyond 1000% since the end of 2019. Currently, drug research against Sars-CoV-2 is in full swing. More effective and safe drugs along with vaccination and testing strategies are critical to managing the pandemic. For investors, this meant a second chance at the next tenbagger.

SYNLAB, PsyBio Therapeutics, BioNTech - A newcomer, an up-and-comer and a high-flyer in the big world of pharmaceuticals

  • Biotech

Last Friday, laboratory services provider SYNLAB made its stock market debut but had difficulty convincing investors of the sustainability of its current order boom. It is not known whether the issue price led to depressive moods among existing shareholders. If it has, they could be helped by the LSD-related psychoactive ingredients of the American biotech pioneer PsyBio, which are expected to expand and improve treatment options for depression, anxiety and drug addiction in the future. For the BioNTech board members, there should be no risk of depression at present. Instead, one can assume that they are thinking about laying a direct line to a champagne producer. It would at least be deserved.

BioNTech, CureVac, Cardiol Therapeutics: In on the next blockbuster from the start

  • Biotech

The two German companies BioNTech and CureVac, have been causing quite a stir since the outbreak of the pandemic. At first, the biotech newcomers were known only to hard-nosed investors who are used to seizing long-term opportunities and accepting initial uncertainty to do so. Even during the first months of the pandemic, it was far from clear whether BioNTech and CureVac would be successful. Only a few insiders had the right instinct early on thanks to the necessary background knowledge and are pleased with BioNTech's annual performance of 260%. But what characterizes the success of innovative biotech companies? And where are the next opportunities lurking? We outline some exciting investment stories.

CureVac, PsyBio, Evotec - Revolution in the billion-dollar market!

  • Biotechnology

The anxiety and limitations associated with the coronavirus pose major challenges for people suffering from depression. Officially, around 350 million people worldwide live with depression, but the number of unreported cases is significantly higher. At the moment, the number one cause of the disease is only combated with antidepressants; there are hardly any alternative treatment methods without severe side effects. A completely new field is currently emerging that could completely eclipse existing drugs, with incredible potential for the young companies.
