Pharma stock investing: Biogen vs AstraZeneca

first_img Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Biogen. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. US pharma stock Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) recently made history having its Alzheimer’s drug Aduhelm approved. It’s the first Alzheimer’s therapy drug to be approved in over 20 years. So, does this mean Biogen is worth adding to my Stocks and Shares ISA? Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now!

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Enter Your Email Address So much promiseWhile Aduhelm doesn’t cure Alzheimer’s, it claims to halt it, which promises a better quality of life for millions of sufferers. But its fast-tracked approval is a controversial decision, and many health professionals are unimpressed.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…In fact, three FDA members have gone so far as to resign in response to the decision. That’s because it’s not completed all phases of trial that drugs usually have to go through. Accelerated approval appears to be triggered because those in need are desperately clinging to the hope it can bring.Biogen will continue to pursue efficacy trials, but the results are likely to take years, and in the meantime, it’s free to sell and profit from the drug.Unfortunately, like many new drugs, Aduhelm is expensive. But, at $56k a year, it’s eye-wateringly so. In fact, this is a new extreme for drug pricing and likely to receive extreme pushback from authorities in the future.Nevertheless, approval is set to mean at least some sales. And these are predicted to reach between a potential $7.5bn and $50bn a year.A boost to the Biogen share priceThe Biogen share price has already soared in response. At almost $385, it’s up 33% in a week, but down 18% since its peak on 10 June. A year ago it was $260.If the drug meets positive expectations, it could be a game-changer for Biogen and its stock price. But it remains under scrutiny, and if it doesn’t meet expectations, I think the share price is likely to take a hit.With the Aduhelm news cushioning the share price, other bad news seems to be flying under the radar. In the past week, Biogen reported failed trial results in three pipeline drugs; another potential Alzheimer’s drug, an eye treatment, and a drug for depression. While the share price seems buoyant for now, these failures remind us of biotech shares’ risk.It’s also a highly competitive industry, and other major players are lining up their versions of Alzheimer’s drugs for FDA approval.When investing in biotech/pharma stocks, I prefer big established companies over growth stocks. For that reason, I’d potentially allocate a small number of Biogen shares to my portfolio. But I also like AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) as a significant pharma player.AstraZeneca has a lot to offerAstraZeneca has seen its share price fluctuate in recent months. Today it’s trading around £83 a share, which is down 17% from its 52-week-high and up 24% from its 52-week-low. Its collaboration with Oxford University to bring a Covid-19 vaccine to market has not gone as smoothly as hoped, which has affected the AZN share price along the way. Nevertheless, the FTSE 100 company has more to offer.AstraZeneca has a highly revered division focused on developing cancer therapies. It also has a diabetes treatment, heart failure therapy, and respiratory drugs. Additionally, it’s in the process of acquiring Alexion, a company specialising in rare diseases.Q1 results showed signs of growth and rising revenues. I think both companies have potential. But I’d choose AstraZeneca over Biogen as it feels like a steadier long-term investment. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Most exercises are orientated around explosive power, which is understandable.However, his most recent video is one of his strangest and niche exercises he has shared to date. Most of his exercises are variations of common moves, but this one is very particular.“Direction of force is everything!” he explains.The USA 7s team will undoubtedly have some of the best and most innovative scientists and performance coaches on their team, and Isles’ name speaks for itself, so maybe this move is worth taking note of.ADVERTISEMENTAnd if his recent sprinting form is anything to go by, there’s definitely method to what looks – to most of us regular folk – like madness.How will you watch the next Rugby World Cup – Enter for a chance to win £100 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Training Related Articles 241 WEEKS AGO Box Jump Guide – Do Them Right To Develop… 242 WEEKS AGO Special Strength Training for Rugby – Why,… 243 WEEKS AGO Functional Gym Training for Rugby – Why It… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Michigan unions fight union-busting

first_imgLansing, Mich., Sept. 20.Lansing, Mich. — The scene was a sea of red outside the Capitol Commons building in Lansing, Mich., on Sept. 20. Wearing red for “Solidarity Wednesday,” members of United Auto Workers Local 6000 — the largest state worker union in Michigan — and other unions demonstrated outside a hearing of the Civil Service Commission. Inside, the hearing room was packed by workers angry about proposed rule changes that would impact collective bargaining rights when their contracts expire.State law allows the unelected commissioners, appointed by governors, to set limits on what state workers are allowed to bargain for in contract negotiations. The new rules, approved by three of the four commissioners in a vote held immediately after the hearing, include gutting seniority protections and changing how overtime is assigned.“Seniority is used in union contracts to promote fairness and efficiency. It is used as a way of avoiding individualized determinations that may say that they’re based on performance but may be based on other issues such as the kinds of nepotism, cronyism and political considerations that the Civil Service Commission was designed to protect against,” Ava Rose Barbour, associate general counsel for the UAW, explained. Unions fear the new rules will restore the old regime of nepotism and favoritism.Big win for teachersThe Eastern Michigan University Federation of Teachers recently pushed back outrageous management demands that included a 25 percent pay cut for 700 full- and part-time lecturers and library staff. The new contract actually includes a pay increase, class load limits, job security protections and is “completely free of concessions.”EMUFT President Daric Thorne believes the open bargaining strategy was what secured the win. “We had members coming out to meetings all summer long, but we had a critical amount of people show up in early August, both members and people from the community and from other unions.” Solidarity rallies drew many student supporters. Feeling the heat from the rank and file and their labor, student and community allies, management backed down.The union includes veteran instructors who have taught at EMU for as long as 20 years. Without the new agreement, “they could fire us at almost any moment and they didn’t have to hire us back,” according to Thorne.
