Game Changer

Merck (MRK) has announced that its oral antiviral pill molnupiravir reduces the death risk from COVID by 50%.  7.3% of those who received the pill were either hospitalized or died through Day 29 compared with 14.1% of those who received the placebo.  The data was so positive that the study was stopped early.

Merck plans to seek Emergency Use Authorization.

Technicals

The first resistance zone for MRK is $81.75 to $84.   The second resistance zone is $86.47 to $88.41.   The resistance is likely to slow the move up in a normal market. However, if the momo crowd gets hold of this stock, they can quickly move it above $100.

Fundamentals

MRK is a very large company.  Although this drug will be meaningful, do not expect the stock to double or triple as small biotech stocks do on good news.  The probability is very high of something similar to Pfizer – PFE has had tremendous success with a vaccine against COVID but the stock has been slow to move.

MRK has a nice dividend of 3.46%.
