Healthcare Stocks Outlook

In July, a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee vote in favor of Dynavax Technologies Corporation’s (NASDAQ:DVAX) experimental hepatitis B vaccine. Previous concerns about vaccine safety had been pressuring the stock. The approval is not guaranteed, but the possibility is enough to skyrocket the stock towards the end of June 2017.

Shares of Dynavax Technologies lifted 71% after the biotech company’s stock started trading again. The previous week, Dynavax received a favorable ruling from an advisory panel at the FDA. Some investors had been nervous about the prospects for a favourable recommendation for Heplisav, due largely to some adverse safety issues that came up in the data that the advisory panel reviewed last Friday.

Yet those concerns apparently weren’t important enough to outweigh the potential benefits of the vaccine. And the vote in favour of recommending approval sends Heplisav-B to the full FDA for consideration. Investors are now optimistic that the vaccine will succeed through the vote.

Furthermore, the FDA is going to issue a decision no later than Aug. 10. Hence, the agency tends to follow the positive guidance provided by independent advisory committees.

If approved, safety concerns will hound Heplisav-B’s commercial launch, but it would have a big advantage over the competition. A huge number of people never come back for their last dose of currently available treatments. Usually six months after the first. Dynavax’s vaccine schedule takes just four weeks to administer, which has most analysts predicting peak annual sales of about $700-800 million.
