The stock market has been on a wild ride this year and December has shown no difference. When it comes down to it, making money in the stock market is simple. But it isn’t easy; let me explain.
For instance, if a sector is on the upward trajectory then it makes complete sense to have a look at some of the stocks in that arena. But then again, even if the sector is hot, it doesn’t mean every stock within it is.
Regardless, among the sectors that have shown impressive growth over the past few years biotech remains positive. and many investors have managed to make handsome returns. Here is a look at two biotech stocks that are worth considering at this point.
Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding
The first biotech stock that could be out into the watch list is that of Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp (NASDAQ:TNXP) after the company made an important announcement. Tonix announced that it has been granted a patent by the European Patent Office for “Eutectic Formulations of Cyclobenzaprine Hydrochloride and Mannitol”.
The patent gives Tonix access to as many as 14 claims and also gives the company exclusive rights up until 2034. The development is a significant one and could have far-reaching implications for Tonix’s business in the years to come.The news was well-received by the markets as well and the stock rallied by as much as 23% on Thursday.
The other stock that could be taken under consideration is the VBI Vaccines Inc (NASDAQ:VBIV). The company made a major announcement with regards to the Phase 1/2A study of its cancer vaccine immunotherapeutic In recurrent glioblastoma (GBM) patients medicine VB1-1901.
The company announced that it presented the data regarding the medicine at the 24th Annual Scientific Meeting and Education Day of the Society for Neuro-Oncology. The event in question is an influential one and is a substantial achievement for VBI. The stock rallied by as much as 50%.
