Times during the pandemic felt hopeless.
There was uncertainty that things would go back to normal.
Then came the vaccine research. Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson got to work.
Celebrities were coming out of the woodwork to help fund the research.
Even Dolly Parton announced she was a significant funder of the Moderna research for the vaccine.
Things aren’t quite back to normal yet, but it looks a lot less bleak because of the vaccines.
Especially for Moderna’s stock.
Moderna Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA) rates a “Bullish” 65 out of 100 on our proprietary Stock Power Ratings system.
Moderna’s Future of Vaccines
While Pfizer plans to raise its prices as coronavirus vaccine demand slows down, Moderna is preparing for the next biological threat.
Moderna is close to finalizing a deal with the U.S. Department of Defense to produce vaccines to target diseases such as Ebola.
After the deadly virus spawned an outbreak in Uganda in September, Moderna didn’t waste a moment before getting into action.
Moderna targets the virus with the same mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid) technology used to develop the COVID-19 vaccine.
However, multiple sources state that it is doubtful that an Ebola vaccine will be ready in time to address the cases in Uganda.
On top of its work on Ebola, company executives announced its commitment to advancing the clinical studies of 15 vaccine programs to target neglected infectious diseases by 2025.
Moderna’s future looks bright regarding finding vaccines for biological threats thrown our way.
But it has some shining moments now as a “Bullish” stock.
