RE: AZN: First quarter 2021 results30 Apr 2021 11:11
The main thing from today is that we see the vaccine and COVID itself did not negatively impact the EPS as some people feared, and it shows it is being done none profit.
Also growth in its oncology lines and in China is promising, and following full year guidance. The market seems to like the results and quelled some fears! Next hurdle is how the company will present the Alexion takeover as a positive. I think it is but not all are convinced, that will be the next step to get the share price above 80 again.
RE: Will this latest disaster harm AZN SP?04 Apr 2021 11:30
Yep as fleecy correctly said its to prevent another mix up with the J&J production error. AZN will find another plant and it is political as Fauci already has laid out that they have enough of the Moderna, Pfizer and J&J vacs (all American of course). AZN will find another plant as they will still use that to produce for other North American countries (such as Mexico). Its weird how the SP gets affected by a non profit vaccine but it gives a good buy point!
Yeah saw that. Not surprised as the US would want to protect profits from Pfizer, Moderna, etc. Also we do know the efficacy of Pfizer and Moderna is slightly better But they can afford to and have the capability unlike Europe and the rest of the world! They can give their doses to Covax and the UK.
I hope so too, real data in the UK should show Europe what needs to be done. Unless you are the US where you can provide/manufacture enough mRNA doses they should stop treating AZN like a political football.
RE: UK regulator identifies 30 cases of blood clot events after AstraZeneca jab02 Apr 2021 18:49
SpikeyJ agree. Most of Europe are a tad strange. Considering the raging 3rd wave over there, the unproven casuality and rarity, its a no brainer to continue the roll out. As I am in the NHS and medical field it astounds me that compared to the side effects of so many medicines, so much attention is being drawn to something statistically low. Medicine is always about risk benefit, and in this case I'm baffled how AZN has become a political football with the benefits far outweighig any risk, which is causing more deaths in Europe. I'm not so fussed about the effect it has on my investment (as I know the oncology and growth prospect of AZN, which this is conversely has made a good buy point compared to last year!), but more on the effect on public health/confidence in vaccines. Often people post with not the full context which is irritating to say the least!

30 divided by 18.1 million that's the most important figure. 1. Link still unproven as of yet. 2. Statistically even if proven medically the benefit far outweigh risk. Find out the rate of GI bleeding for ibuprofen, everyone still uses it. 3. MHRA , EMA and WHO all approves and encourage the AZN jab.
Its good they are being transparent but the pharmacovigilance on this is to the extreme and never seen before. At the end of the day no link proven yet and statistically it is a life saving treatment unless you want to get COVID and the AZN jab is doing the donkey work as most countries in the world can't afford the Pfizer (and storage conditions). 30/18.1 million with an unproven link compared to covid most people choose the jab.
RE: Germany stop AstraZeneca jab again31 Mar 2021 13:06
I love how allah4uk still peddle the thrombosis link. 2 weeks after. So I ate bread 2 weeks before. Was it the bread? With no knowledge of her medical history, or indeed if she was taking other medicines, still making incorrect assumptions. What if she had an underlying thrombotic disease? Unknown cancer? Taking the pill? Until someone proves the link its all speculation.
He still does not understand statistics and how benefits outweigh any unproven risks even if eventually a link is proven. Probably wants a world without medicine or pregnancy.
RE: Germany stop AstraZeneca jab again30 Mar 2021 20:43
Its definitely not good but the pill has more chance of causing clots. Highly doubt its the vaccine. Its funny how Europe is all divided about how to use the vaccine and its become a political football underservedly.
He's a troll. He also doesn't realise all vaccine companies (including Pfizer and Moderna) aren't quite meeting their quota because the process is actually quite complicated. Also the EU contract with AZN is a best effort so it's their procurement fault, different to the UK contract. Probably too complicated for him...
Also your story is totally irrelevant. You don't even know the details in the case. Can you guarentee the person involved didn't take any other substance in the days apart? And guess what how many people have thrombosis and had bread for breakfast. Blame the bread? Oh wait you don't understand statistics.
Prove there is a link. Do you know if the person in question was taking any other medicines? Any other genetics or medical conditions?
And you are still ignoring statistics. It is statistically lower than having a clot in normal life. And you think you know better than clinical trials (including the one in the US), the EMA, WHO and MHRA?
Stop spreading your anti vaxer values, it's an insult to health care workers like me when you spout unproven links and fear.
