Regeneron (REGN, $652.99) awarded $450 million contract by the U.S. government, for developing coronavirus treatment

Regeneron   shares climbed Tuesday, following news of the company being awarded a $450 million contract with the U.S. government, for developing coronavirus treatment.

The biotechnology company said that the contract will support it in boosting production of the REGN-COV2, conditional upon the success of clinical trials and Emergency Use Authorization or product approval from the Food and Drug Administration grants

REGN-COV2 is involved in two different clinical trials for both the treatment and prevention of the COVID-19.

Another biotech company Novavax  also received a government contract, worth $1.6 billion from the federal government, to complete late-stage development of its NVX‑CoV2373 Covid-19 vaccine candidate, and to begin large-scale manufacturing and delivery of the drug by next year.

Tickeron's Comparison of Novavax, Inc. (NVAX) vs Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (REGN) :

[NVAX & REGN] are closely correlated.

Both companies represent the Biotechnology industry

Market capitalization -- NVAX: $4.6B vs. REGN: $70.6B

Current volume relative to the 65-day Moving Average: NVAX: 37% vs. REGN: 68%

Brand notoriety: NVAX and REGN are both notable

Long term analysis

It is best to consider a long-term outlook for a ticker by using Fundamental Analysis (FA) ratings. The rating of 1 to 100, where 1 is best and 100 is worst, is divided into thirds. The first third (a green rating of 1-33) indicates that the ticker is undervalued; the second third (a grey number between 34 and 66) means that the ticker is valued fairly; and the last third (red number of 67 to 100) reflects that the ticker is undervalued. We use an FA Score to show how many ratings show the ticker to be undervalued (green) or overvalued (red).

NVAX’s FA Score shows that 1 FA rating(s) are green while REGN’s FA Score has 3’s green FA rating(s).

  • NVAX’s FA Score: 1 green, 4 red.
  • REGN’s FA Score: 3 green, 2 red.

Short-Term Analysis

It is best to consider a short-term outlook for a ticker by using Technical Analysis (TA) indicators.

NVAX’s TA Score shows that 3 TA rating(s) are bullish while REGN’s TA Score has 2’s bullish TA rating(s).

  • NVAX’s TA Score: 3 bullish, 3 bearish.
  • REGN’s TA Score: 2 bullish, 5 bearish.

REGN vs NVAX: Fundamental Ratings:

Tickeron ratings are formulated such that a rating of 1 designates the most successful stocks in a given industry, while a rating of 100 points to the least successful stocks for that industry.

NVAX's Valuation (1) in the Biotechnology industry is significantly better than the same rating for REGN (85). This means that NVAX’s stock grew significantly faster than REGN’s over the last 12 months.

REGN's Profit vs Risk Rating (60) in the Biotechnology industry is somewhat better than the same rating for NVAX (100). This means that REGN’s stock grew somewhat faster than NVAX’s over the last 12 months.

REGN's SMR Rating (18) in the Biotechnology industry is significantly better than the same rating for NVAX (100). This means that REGN’s stock grew significantly faster than NVAX’s over the last 12 months.

REGN's Price Growth Rating (4) in the Biotechnology industry is in the same range as NVAX (34). This means that REGN’s stock grew similarly to NVAX’s over the last 12 months.

REGN's P/E Growth Rating (8) in the Biotechnology industry is significantly better than the same rating for NVAX (100). This means that REGN’s stock grew significantly faster than NVAX’s over the last 12 months.

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

The U.S. economy’s employment fell by -20.5 million in April. The coronavirus crisis led to unemployment rate soaring to 14.7% in the U.S, the highest rate in the Bureau of Labor Statistics-tracked series history that goes back to 1948. However, the figures were better compared to several economists'/analysts' forecasts of 22 million job losses and 16% unemployment rate.  Another unemployment measure that includes those who have stopped looking for work as well as those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons also touched an all-time high of 22.8%.
