COVID-19 vaccine stocks have easily been the hottest niche across the entire market since March. Developmental-stage companies like Inovio Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INO), Moderna (NASDAQ: MRNA), Novavax (NASDAQ: NVAX), Vaxart (NASDAQ: VXRT), and Heat Biologics (NASDAQ: HTBX) all saw their shares rise at a dizzying pace in 2020, thanks to their coronavirus vaccine candidates.
What happened Shares of the developmental biotech Heat Biologics (NASDAQ: HTBX) jumped by as much as 21% in pre-market trading Wednesday morning. The company's shares perked up in response to the release of a pre-print (a preliminary article that has yet to be peer-reviewed) discussing the animal data for its COVID-19 vaccine candidate.
Reports of an early approval for AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine are sending these three stocks lower today.
