The Covid vaccine financial victors and casualties, from Novavax to Pfizer

It has been four years since the outbreak of Covid-19, which resulted in a global pandemic that took millions of lives and brought the world to a halt. One of the key factors in controlling the spread of the virus has been the development of effective vaccines, which have played a vital role in saving countless lives.

The successful creation of vaccines by companies such as Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna was a significant milestone in the fight against Covid-19. These vaccines generated enormous revenues, with total sales exceeding $80 billion and hundreds of millions of doses administered worldwide. Despite their financial success, investors have not been as impressed with these pharmaceutical companies’ stock prices.

Pfizer and BioNTech’s stock prices fell by 32% over the past five years, despite their enormous sales of their vaccine. In contrast, AstraZeneca, which has not booked sales from its vaccine since last April, saw a 64% increase in its share price. Even Merck, whose vaccine efforts failed twice, has seen a 56% increase in its stock price.

It is surprising to see that the financial success of these vaccines has not translated into positive gains for the companies producing them. Investors seem to be focusing on other factors when evaluating these pharmaceutical companies’ performance relative to their Covid-19 vaccine sales.
