Stock markets in the UK are either heading into a recession or already are. Many investors are concerned about what the future holds for them.
There are reasons to be optimistic even right now. Inflation should fall throughout the year. Economic conditions will improve. Perhaps most important, dynamic business leaders will keep pushing forward, determined to deliver growth for investors.
New drugs can be expensive and time-consuming, as well as presenting logistical challenges.
New remedies must be safe first. Next, companies must prove their effectiveness. It is common to give the medicine to volunteers and send them off to get the disease. It can take many years to conduct trials, especially if you are testing for seasonal illnesses like the flu.
HVivo takes a different approach. HVivo recruits healthy volunteers to inject the drug it is testing. The treatment is tested by monitoring the recruits for up to three weeks.
Volunteers receive compensation for their time, and they spend the quarantine period at an hVivo treatment center. This is similar hotel to a smart hotel with all medical facilities.
These so-called “human challenge” trials are often cheaper and more efficient than traditional methods. Pfizer used the hVivo human trial in its research on the RSV virus, a flu-like disease that is one the most common causes of death among children under two years old.
Pfizer hopes that it will be approved for a new RSV vaccination this year. This move is likely to save the lives of thousands of young people.
HVivo also ran the 2021 first human challenge trial of Covid-19, which sent the shares up to 40p. They are currently 10p with investors claiming that hVivo stock is a Covid stock.
The group still conducts many trials every year. Revenues are growing quickly and there is a strong pipeline to 2023.
HVivo is an internationally recognized leader in the field. He also runs FluCamp East London, which tests new flu vaccines. The shares are valued at 10p.
Harland & Wolff
The construction of the Titanic began on March 31, 1909. It took three years and employed 3,000 workers to complete. Harland & Wolff was the company behind this massive project, and it went on to be one of the most famous shipbuilders in the world.
The group went bankrupt in 2018. People in Belfast believed that shipbuilding was dead at the time.
John Wood, a proud Scot, who began his career in the Merchant Navy, is determined to prove them wrong.
Infrastratra’s chief executive, Wood, bought Harland & Wolff off the administrators to establish a company that was worthy of its history. The group now has facilities at Appledore and Devon, Arnish, Methil and Methil in Scotland, Islandmagee and County Antrim, and the famous Belfast site.
It covers all aspects of design, development, construction, repair and maintenance. It also has a presence in many other sectors, including defense, energy, cruise and ferry, commercial vessels, and renewables such as barges for offshore turbines.
Recent wins have seen the award of several key contracts. The Queen Victoria cruise ship by Cunard, a Cunard subsidiary, received a major makeover in Belfast last summer. It was the largest ever UK-based cruise ship to have such work.
HMS Quorn is an ex-Royal Navy minehunter that the firm is restoring for the Lithuanian Navy. It is also the preferred bidder to a huge £1.6 billion Ministry of Defence contract for support ships for the Navy.
As part of its national shipbuilding strategy, the Government expects other contracts.
Harland & Wolff shares fell by 33% in three years. This was not the case when Harland & Wolff announced on Friday that several of its projects would be generating revenues in 2023, rather than the previous year.
Harland & Wolff has a long history dating back to the 1860s. Although the Titanic was lost, this company has risen from its ashes and can ride the waves again. The shares are 16p and could bring handsome rewards for the daring investor.
