Moderna Stock Jumps Nearly 6% After Vaccine Sales More Than Triple From Last Year

Shares of Moderna rallied on Wednesday after the biotech company reported higher-than-expected revenue and profits in the first quarter, with results boosted by soaring coronavirus vaccine sales, which have more than tripled from a year ago.

Moderna’s stock rose 5.8% to over $155 per share on Wednesday after the vaccine maker reported first-quarter earnings that beat Wall Street expectations, as revenue and profits surged from a year ago.

Shares initially jumped by as much as 5% in premarket trading following the strong earnings results.

Moderna’s quarterly revenue came in at more than $6 billion—compared to the $4.6 billion expected by Wall Street analysts, while net income of nearly $3.7 billion more than tripled from the first quarter of 2021.

The company reported $5.9 billion in coronavirus vaccine sales during the first quarter, a more than threefold increase from the $1.7 billion in sales a year ago.

Moderna predicts $21 billion in total vaccine sales for 2022, with a boost in the second half of the year thanks to increased vaccination campaigns in the fall season, management said.

The company expects to receive regulatory approval for a redesigned vaccine that targets the omicron variant by this summer and its coronavirus vaccines for children will be reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration in June.
