Why You Should?

  1. Many investors heard about Donald Trump’s COVID diagnosis and the aftermath of the event. According to Trump and his physicians, he took an experimental COVID antibody treatment to improve the outcome of the diagnosis. This saw the stock price skyrocket and if this is one of the first COVID cures, it will cause the stock price to rise further.

Why You Should Not?

  1. The COVID-19 Pandemic has also negatively impacted the company’s sales of other drugs as customers stay at home and miss regular hospital visits. This shift in consumer trends might continue until people are comfortable to go return to hospitals and take drugs produced by Regeneron.

MY OPINION

In my opinion, I think that Regeneron is a great long term investment due to the wide variety of drugs that it offers hopes of a COVID treatment or vaccine. However, valuation and competition as well as a political background that wants to limit drug prices might hurt the company in the future.
