Emergent BioSolutions Inc. is an American biopharmaceutical company. It develops vaccines and antibody therapeutics for infectious diseases and opioid overdoses, and it provides medical devices for biodefense purposes. Check out its next big move with our EBS stock history chart!

Among the company's notable products are BioThrax (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed), the only anthrax vaccine licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Narcan (naloxone) for the emergency treatment of opioid overdose. The company also manufactures pharmaceuticals for infectious diseases like cholera and typhoid. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Emergent BioSolutions also produced Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines at one of its plants. However, this was marked by contamination and other production issues, and millions of doses of vaccine had to be discarded.

What drives the EBS stock price?

Emergent BioSolutions has had a rough go from March to May 2021, resulting from a cross-contamination mishap at their Baltimore facility. Due to the cross-contamination, the company had to toss millions of Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Consequently, the FDA put a halt to vaccine production at that facility. Because of that, last months weren’t easy for the company and therefore EBS stock price dropped significantly.


Another negative headline comes from Emergent's CEO Kramer, who allegedly sold $7.6M worth of EBS in February and March before the COVID vaccine blunder news hit the wire. Apparently, these transactions were scheduled back in November, so it is difficult to say that this was insider trading. Nevertheless, it is another negative headline for the company to add to the pile.

Nevertheless, on May 03, the EBS earnings date, the company pointed at record revenues in 2021. The market will find it hard to ignore double-digit growth over the rest of 2021. Check out day trading strategies earnings announcements to learn how to trade on earnings season.
