Moderna Analysts Say COVID-19 Vaccine Contract Reflects Pricing Risk, Shows Ability To Scale
After hinting at ongoing negotiations for larger vaccine deals on its earnings call, Moderna Inc (NASDAQ: MRNA) said late Tuesday that it signed an agreement with the U.S. government to supply 100 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine candidate mRNA-1273 for $1.525 billion.The Moderna Analysts: SVB Leerink analyst Mani Foroohar maintained a Market Perform rating on Moderna shares and lowered the price target from $60 to $58. Chardan analyst Geulah Livshits maintained a Buy rating and $95 price target.Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Harrison maintained an Overweight rating and $90 price target.SVB Leerink Sees Long-Term Pricing Risk: The contract award from the U.S. government implies a price of $15.25 per dose, materially below the previously modeled $22 per dose, as well as the Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE)/BioNTech SE - ADR (NASDAQ: BNTX) combine's $19.50 per-dose pricing for the government contract, Foroohar said in a Wednesday note.Moderna's contract with the U.S. government includes incentive payments for timely delivery, with some portion of the pricing at risk if the company is not able to obtain emergency use authorization or BLA approval by Jan. 31, 2021, the analyst said. An EUA by this timeframe is likely, given the flexibility of regulatory agencies with respect to SARS-CoV-2 vaccine candidates, he said. Even this assumption carries a risk if Moderna experiences a delay in clinical trial execution or reports disappointing interim data from

Why Nio Has A Shot At Becoming The 'Tesla Of China'
Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer Nio Inc - ADR (NYSE: NIO) reported Tuesday with forecast-beating second-quarter results and issued a strong third-quarter outlook. The Nio Analysts: Piper Sandler analyst Alexander Potter reiterated a Neutral rating on Nio and increased the price target from $4 to $14.BofA Securities analyst Ming Hsun Lee reiterated a Buy rating and increased the price target from $17.40 to $18.Why Nio Shares Could Trade In Line With EV Peers: Nio's narrower-than-expected second-quarter loss is due to a higher gross margin, with the vehicle margin coming in at a historical high of 9.7% and several basis points higher than the 5% guidance, Potter said in a note.More importantly, the company guided to continued gross margin expansion in the third and fourth quarters thanks to lower battery costs, the analyst said.From skepticism concerning the company's ability to remain a going concern, Nio has come a long way from skepticism over whether it could stay in business, he said. The automaker boasts unique products and has a reliance on subsidies, which are two prerequisites for success, Potter said.With Nio raising capital in two funding rounds, including a secondary offering in June, there are no longer fears that the company may go out of business, the analyst said.
