US-based pharma company Moderna will apply for US and European emergency authorization of its COVID-19 vaccine, based on full results from a late-stage study showing its vaccine was 94.1% effective with no serious safety concerns. 

Finally, time to rejoice ?

The drug company also reported a 100% success rate in preventing severe Covid-19 cases. The filing sets Moderna's product up to be the second vaccine likely to receive US emergency use authorization after Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine, which is 95% effective.

Of the 196 volunteers who contracted COVID-19 in the more than 30,000-person trial, 185 had received a placebo versus 11 who got the vaccine. The company reported 30 severe cases - all in the placebo group - which means the vaccine was 100% effective at preventing severe cases. 

Its distribution of Moderna vaccine is expected to be easier than Pfizer's because while it needs to be stored in a freezer, it does not require the ultra-cold temperature needed by Pfizer's vaccine.

Bottom line: The world is happy; now it's time to watch which countries will get a share of the vaccine!

Yes, the vaccine is here. But things doesn't seem to be going well for Indian Banks as Moody's Investors Service warns of severe capital decline in Indians banks over the next 2 years.

Other details from the study..

The uncertain trajectory of asset quality is one of the biggest threats for emerging market banks, as operating conditions remain challenging amid the current COVID pandemic.

They also said that the 2021 outlook for banks in emerging markets is negative, while the outlook for insurers is stable.

As a reason for the decline, Moody's said that Non-performing loans (NPLs) will rise most for banks in India and Thailand because of the greater shock to their economies and historically poor performance of certain loan types.

In India, stress among non-bank financial institutions might also curtail their capacity to lend.

Bottom line: Quality financial institutions are neccessary to lead a bull run. Let's see who will outperform the markets !
