Vaxart is a small, clinical-stage biotechnology company primarily focused on the development of oral recombinant vaccines based on its proprietary oral vaccine platform. In early 2020, Vaxart purportedly began to develop a Covid-19 vaccine.

In late June 2020, Vaxart made a couple of announcements regarding its Covid-19 vaccine and the stock price increased dramatically.

Soon after these announcements, Vaxart’s largest shareholder, Armistice Capital LLP, sold massive amounts of its Vaxart shares for a huge profit.

Then, on July 25, 2020, The New York Times published an article entitled Corporate Insiders Pocket $1 Billion in Rush for Coronavirus Vaccine. The article clarified one of Vaxart’s announcements and reported that, “Vaxart is not among the companies selected to receive significant financial support from [the U.S. Government’s Operation] Warp Speed.”

On this news, the price of Vaxart shares dropped and the Company’s stock price has continued to decline.
