Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Novavax stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NOVAVAX INC is a specialty biopharmaceutical company engaged in the research, development and commercialization of proprietary products focused on women's health and infectious diseases. Their technology platforms involve the use of proprietary, microscopic, organized, non-phospholipid structures as vehicles for the delivery of a wide variety of drugs and other therapeutic products, including certain hormones, anti-bacterial and anti-viral products and vaccine adjuvants. " (5/15/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "NanoFlu seasonal flu vaccine could be just what the Dr. ordered. The mismatch of commercially available (egg-production-based) seasonal flu vaccines in the current season underscores the theoretical utility of NVAX’s vaccine production technology. Avoiding influenza virus propagation in eggs could reduce the need for egg adaptation and possible generation of virus particles that do not faithfully resemble the wild type viruses recommended by health organizations for inclusion in flu vaccines. Particularly when prevailing strains are highly pathogenic, e.g., H3N2, having a better matched flu vaccine would seem to be desirable, in our view." (3/15/2018)
