On average, the Danish biotech and healthcare stocks delivered a negative share price performance of the past week of 4.1%. Fluoguide did well after they entered into a collaboration with Intuitive Surgical, a USD 140 billion company working with robot-assisted surgeries, where the goal is to develop FG001 for tutor imaging and more. It is highly positive for the company to be associated with Intuitive Surgical, and it is interesting what the collaboration can bring.

Members of the management and board of directors in Biosergen chose to participate in the ongoing rights issue, while Curasight announced not to proceed with the rights issue due to low participation. Curasight now seeks other financing alternatives. Finally, Y-mAbs Therapeutics’ CFO resigned, there was an insider buy in Acarix and Genmab initiated a new buyback program.

The best stocks year-to-date are Y-mAbs Therapeutics, Zealand Pharma, and Gubra with 87-116% increases after ten weeks of trading. Overall the Danish biotech and healthcare stocks are in positive territory this year with a year-to-date return of 3.8%. 2cureX AB is currently dropping 76% on its financial and operational update. The drop in the share price is not a part of the table below as it only counts last week’s performance.
