Four years have passed since the outbreak of Covid-19, which triggered a global pandemic that resulted in millions of deaths and caused the world to come to a standstill. The development of effective vaccines has been a key factor in controlling the spread of the virus and saving countless lives.

The creation of vaccines by companies like Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna was a significant milestone in the fight against Covid-19. These vaccines generated enormous revenues, with total sales exceeding $80 billion and hundreds of millions of doses administered worldwide. However, despite their financial success, investors have not been as impressed with these companies’ stock performance.

Pfizer and BioNTech’s stock price fell by 32% over the past five years, while AstraZeneca, which has not reported any sales from its vaccine since last April, saw a 64% increase in its share price. Even Merck, a company whose vaccine efforts failed twice, saw a 56% increase in its stock price. It is surprising to see that the financial success of these vaccines has not translated into positive gains for their creators.

It seems that investors are looking beyond just revenue when evaluating these pharmaceutical companies’ performance in relation to their Covid-19 vaccine sales. Other factors such as drug development pipelines or clinical trial results may be more important factors for investors when making investment decisions.

Overall, while the successful creation of vaccines has played a crucial role in controlling the spread of Covid-19 and saving countless lives, it is clear that investors are still looking for more than just financial success when evaluating these companies’ performance.
