Share Article

New pharma stocks in the EuropeFX asset index include drug companies close to the COVID-19 vaccine.



EuropeFX is clearly aware of this demand, having recently expanded its offering to include a basket of Pharma Stocks. The brokerage is now offering exposure to seven different pharmaceutical companies that are currently the frontrunners for a Covid-19 vaccine.

2020 has been defined by the outbreak of Covid-19, which, according to many health experts, has yet to even reach its peak. To date, a vaccine has not yet been created to combat the virus, though pharmaceutical companies worldwide are aggressively pursuing one.

This has made an investment in pharmaceutical stocks one of the most attractive options in 2020, given the substantial potential upside of rolling out the first vaccine for Covid-19.

"EuropeFX is clearly aware of this demand, having recently expanded its offering to include a basket of Pharma Stocks. The brokerage is now offering exposure to seven different pharmaceutical companies that are currently the frontrunners for a Covid-19 vaccine," said EuropeFX CEO Keith Ioakim.

According to EuropeFX CEO Keith Ioakim, "Hundreds of thousands have died worldwide, and the demand for a vaccine has never been higher. This has created an unprecedented demand, which could catapult a pharmaceutical's valuation through the roof overnight."

Traditionally, pharmaceutical companies face long roads to inventing vaccines. Long before these get to the market, a vaccine has to pass multiple stages of trials to ensure its safety. These are decreased, however, once the World Health Organization (WHO) has announced a pandemic, which is the case for Covid-19.

As a result, several pharmaceutical companies have seen an extraordinary level of speculative interest from investors during the trial stages of a vaccine.

EuropeFX now has on offered the seven pharmaceutical companies leading the race for a Covid-19 vaccine globally. This includes the following companies:

Gilead Sciences Inc.
