Several 100% upside potential? BioNTech, Bayer, Cardiol Therapeutics and Evotec in analyst check

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

We take a look at analysts' opinions on biotech and pharmaceutical stocks. Jefferies recently renewed its "Buy" recommendation for Evotec with a target price of EUR 34. The latest partnerships confirm that the Company's unique business model is working. The situation at Bayer is quite different. While the CEO is announcing radical changes, analysts are slashing their price targets, in some cases significantly. In contrast, analysts believe that Cardiol Therapeutics could achieve several 100% gains. The cash register is full to bursting, and an exciting news flow can be expected in 2024. At BioNTech, only the cash position is currently convincing. However, this is not enough for a buy recommendation.

BioNTech, Defence Therapeutics, Bayer - Golden times for the biotech and pharma industry?

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma
  • Covid19

With the arrival of winter, people are increasingly worried about illnesses such as coronavirus and influenza. The current wave of diseases and the new coronavirus variant are increasing the demand for medicines, which could positively impact the shares of pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Biotech's success in drug development for COVID-19 vaccines has allowed the industry to flourish over the past two years. But after the boom came the crash. However, the stock market always moves in cycles. The current challenges in the healthcare sector, such as the rising number of cancer cases, could, therefore, mean golden times for pharmaceutical and biotech companies, as they not only contribute to improving global health but also offer attractive returns for investors.

Which stocks are leading the fight against cancer and chronic diseases? Defence Therapeutics, Merck and BioNTech

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

The pharmaceutical industry is facing complex developments in the fight against cancer, with Defence Therapeutics making significant progress with the successful FDA filing for its drug for the targeted treatment of tumors. The growing market opportunities in oncology until 2032 underline the potential of this breakthrough. In contrast, Merck KGaA is experiencing a severe setback with an 11% share price decline following the failure of evobrutinib for the relief of MS in late-stage clinical trials. According to analysts, this also impacts the Company's valuation. Despite promising cancer-fighting approaches, BioNTech faces uncertainties due to a reduced revenue forecast for 2023 and an 'Underweight' rating from JP Morgan. Despite these challenges, the sector remains dynamic. Find out which shares could be worthwhile in the long term here.

  • Healthcare

Cardiol Therapeutics, a clinical-stage life sciences company focusing on therapies for heart inflammation, has secured a renowned clinic to advance its Phase II MAvERIC-Pilot study. This study, focused on combating recurrent pericarditis, promises to provide sound approaches to improve the quality of life of affected patients. Amazon has been dabbling in the healthcare sector since 2015 and is gradually conquering the telemedicine market. The path to telemedicine for Prime members, through the acquisition of companies such as "One Medical" and "PillPack", poses challenges. In contrast, Bayer is once again caught in the crossfire of legal disputes. The recent glyphosate trial loss before a jury in Philadelphia calls for a strategic realignment. At the same time, Bayer is attempting to provide new impetus in the area of women's health through a partnership in the field of hormonal contraception. Find out which development holds promise here.

  • Biotechnology

Morphosys is not for the faint-hearted. After unclear study results, the stock gave up its annual gains within a few days. Analysts are also divided on what the future holds. On December 10, the study details will be released, hopefully shedding light on the situation. Bayer shareholders are currently seeing dark clouds. The stock plummeted from EUR 40 to EUR 30 in a short time. Is the dividend now at risk, or is the entire company in jeopardy? There is a slew of positive news for Defence Therapeutics. Can the stock break out of its sideways trend? A potential partner for the Canadians could be BioNTech. The German biotech favourite is working with full coffers on cancer vaccines. However, analysts remain cautious.

  • Biotechnology

What do renewable energies, biotech and gold have in common? Shares from these sectors have predominantly experienced significant losses in 2023. Morphosys, Siemens Energy and Desert Gold are examples of this. However, the underperformers in the current year are often among the top performers in the upcoming year. Can this apply to these three shares? In the case of Morphosys, the latest study data has been confusing, and the share has given back its gains of the year. Analysts are now expressing their views. Siemens Energy has lost over 30% of its value due to operational problems, and the price targets of the experts vary widely. Explorer Desert Gold has been quiet recently. Is it the calm before a price jump? In any case, the share is anything but expensive.

Novo Nordisk, Defence Therapeutics, Morphosys - The biotechs are coming

  • Biotechnology

The capital-intensive biotech sector was hit particularly hard when the US Federal Reserve began the massive interest rate hikes from zero to 5.5% in the first quarter of 2022. Since then, the broad-based Nasdaq Biotech Index has lost around 20% of its value. With the end of the strict monetary policy, this sector is now likely to experience a revival on the stock market. There is significant catching-up potential, especially among second-tier stocks.
