By Kuldip K. Ambastha

Novavax, Inc. (NVAX), a clinical-stage vaccine company, had its stock price fall by -17.2% per share on Thursday, June 9, 2022. (See past coverage if needed: “What Caught Our Attention in the Investment World? – Week of December 27-31, 2021; By Kuldip K. Ambastha.”) In 1Q2022, earnings per share plus total revenues did not surpass Wall Street’s consensus estimates, and furthermore Wall Street has now adjusted its future expectations downwards. In the USA, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has voted to give emergency-use authorization (EUA) to Novavax’s COVID-19 vaccine NVX-CoV2373. However, the FDA has also stated that changes in Novavax’s production processes need to be reviewed further, and this negative regulatory news dominated anything positive seen for Novavax in the past trading week.
