The Week Ahead In Biotech: Spotlight On Q1 Pre-Announcements As COVID-19 Continues To Disrupt Operations

Biotech stocks went along with the broader market flow in the week ended April 3, with the COVID-19 pandemic dictating sentiment. The week witnessed a host of clinical readouts and pre-announcements in light of the COVID-19 impact.

The stock that made headlines during the week was Amarin Corporation plc (NASDAQ: AMRN), which slumped on an adverse court ruling.

The following are catalysts that could impact biotech stocks in the unfolding week.

The focus is likely to stay on pre-clinical and clinical updates from companies developing therapies and/or vaccines for SARS-CoV-2. More companies are expected to update investors with preliminary first-quarter results that factor in the COVID-19 impact.
