The vaccination rate is stalling. Around 4 million out of 24 million people over the age of 60 are still unvaccinated. Politicians led by Health Minister Jens Spahn have now launched a vaccination campaign week to get more people immunized against the coronavirus. The proportion of vaccinated people in Germany is still too low to prevent a new Corona wave and a possible resulting overload of the healthcare system. Meanwhile, vaccine producers are already working on the approval of booster shots. Profits should continue to bubble up for a long time.

    Cardiol Therapeutics - Milestone

    The new Nasdaq-listed biotech Company Cardiol Therapeutics is currently accompanied by consistently positive news. And since the emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the research work of the Canadians has been more important than ever. Cardiol Therapeutics focuses on producing pharmaceutical cannabidiol (CBD) products and developing innovative therapies for heart disease, including acute myocarditis and other causes of heart failure. Concerning vaccinations, inflammation of the heart muscle and pericardium occurred in the aftermath of vaccinations with mRNA vaccines, particularly in younger people.

    The blockbuster product CardiolRx, a highly purified and concentrated oral cannabidiol formulation, has now recently received clearance from the FDA for an IND (Investigational New Drug) application for a Phase II clinical trial in acute myocarditis. The study is expected to enroll 100 patients in clinical centers in the United States and Europe. The IND approval represents another important milestone in pursuing new treatment options for patients with inflammatory heart disease. Results from the Phase II trial are expected to be announced as early as the first quarter of 2023. If the trial goes through smoothly, valuations, currently at a market cap of EUR 159.16 million, are expected to skyrocket.

    The Nasdaq listing should already result in greater attention to the stock. The share price is quoted at CAD 5.40 on the home exchange in Toronto. The analysts of GBC Research already assign a price target of CAD 17.49.

    Valneva - Battle for customers

    Good tolerability, few, at least known, side effects and long-term studies carried out show the advantages of a classic inactivated vaccine over novel mRNA gene therapeutics. With these advantages, Valneva wanted to enter the market with its vaccine called VLA2001, which is currently in the third phase, and lure more vaccine skeptics in front of the stove. Here, Valneva plans to release more clinical trial data in October.

    However, the French received a bitter blow with the withdrawal of their only customer, the British government. Now hopes rest on talks with the European Union. Unlike the British, the EU is showing further interest in the vaccine. At the level in the area around EUR 11, the horror news now seems to be slowly digested. Interested investors aware of the risk should the EU also lose interest in the inactivated vaccine are offered an entry opportunity at this level. If a customer is acquired, the stock market value is currently EUR 1.05 billion, providing a multiplication opportunity.

    BioNTech - Ahead of the competition

    The sparrows were already whistling it from the rooftops. The vaccine Comirnaty of the German Company BioNTech and its US partner Pfizer was able to achieve partial success at the advisory committee of the regulatory authority and, at least for a short time, to distance itself from its most significant competitor Moderna. After an advisory meeting on booster vaccinations, the latter announced that the application to recommend booster vaccinations for all persons 16 years of age and older would not be endorsed.

    On the other hand, nothing stands in the way of booster vaccinations for people 65 and older and those with pre-existing conditions. These people should receive a booster vaccination with Comirnaty at an interval of six months after the last vaccination. A booster has also been made available for healthcare workers and other professions with an increased risk of contact. The FDA now plans to make a final decision soon. However, it can be assumed that the regulatory authority will follow the view of the advisory committee.

    The share corrected by around 3% in trading after the announcement was published. Due to positive news flow, which is expected to remain, a breakout above the sideways trend formed early August at around USD 375 seems likely.


    The topic of vaccines will continue to occupy society and the capital market for a long time to come. While BioNTech is likely to continue its winning streak, Valneva is a top or bottom play. Cardiol Therapeutics offers high long-term potential in the field of heart disease.

    Share price shock at Siemens Energy! What are BioNTech and Cardiol Therapeutics doing?

    The Siemens Energy share has been one of the surprises of recent months. It has more than doubled since the beginning of the year. Is a crash now imminent? Yes, if you believe Bernstein. Their analysts are shocking us with a horror price target. The Cardiol Therapeutics share performed even better than Siemens Energy in 2024. Despite the 150% rally, analysts see upside potential for the cardiovascular disease specialist. Things will get really exciting at the beginning of June when new study results are due. BioNTech, on the other hand, is currently failing to convince analysts. Reactions to the latest quarterly figures were modest.

    Bayer, Defence Therapeutics, Novavax - Major events

    • Biotechnology
    • Pharma

    The biotechnology sector is still on the move and is currently characterized by a high degree of volatility. For instance, BioNTech, a former star during the pandemic, reported a net loss of EUR 315 million in the first quarter. The Mainz-based biotech now wants to focus more on the development of its cancer drugs due to the slump in demand for COVID-19 vaccines. However, for years, innovative, undiscovered companies have existed in this billion-dollar market that could, with their technologies, become the new high-flyers in the biotech industry.

    Biotech and pharma stocks finally follow suit! Novo Nordisk, Bayer, BioNTech, Vidac Pharma and Evotec on the buy list

    • Biotechnology
    • Pharma

    Things looked very different at the beginning of the year. After a brilliant rally in the Nasdaq Biotech Index at the end of last year, investors thought the upswing could continue in 2024. So far, this hope has not been confirmed. The main focus for the industry is the refinancing conditions. These have gradually deteriorated, as stubborn inflation is keeping central bank interest rates high. And judging by the wording of central bankers, the next interest rate cut does not seem to be penciled in yet. However, if it happens in the summer, things will likely move quickly for the life sciences sector. Then a quick sector rotation is the order of the day! Here is our buy list for the upcoming event.
