Valneva, Cardiol Therapeutics, BioNTech - Recurring businesses

  • Biotechnology

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.

Bayer, Sativa Wellness Group, MorphoSys - Can the pharmaceutical industry benefit from the new German government?

  • Biotechnology

The federal election is over, and the pharmaceutical industry has to adjust to the new political constellation. The industry is facing change. Digitization is an important topic. To not lose even more researchers to foreign countries, approval processes must be accelerated and bureaucracy reduced. If we always acted as decisively as we did during the pandemic, much more could be achieved. The new federal government is flirting with the legalization of cannabis. If this were to happen, the market would probably be huge. The next four years promise to be exciting.

The pandemic is drawing to a close. Vaccination rates are high, and a new wave is - fortunately - not picking up speed. But in this environment, what is happening to many highly acclaimed pandemic stocks? Are vaccine manufacturers still interesting at the moment?

BioNTech, Cardiol Therapeutics, CureVac: A decade's worth of ideas!

  • Biotechnology

Biotechnology remains a hotly contested industry. In the fight against a wide range of diseases, biopharmaceuticals are the first port of call. It studies the relationship between drugs and excipients' chemical and physical properties and their form of administration in a living organism. By directly applying findings from biology and biochemistry, technically functional elements are identified. The central objectives are to research, improve and develop processes for the production of relevant substances. Often research goes nowhere; we take a look at the sector.
