Vaxart stock plummeted after The New York Times published an article stating that after Vaxart announced that it was selected by the government to be part of Operation Warp Speed, company insiders saw the value of their stock options soar, and a hedge fund that partly controlled the company gained nearly $200 million in instant profits. However, the article states that the company’s reality is "more complex" than the announcement may have stated.
While Vaxart’s vaccine has been selected for a trial being organized in conjunction with Operation Warp Speed, Vaxart is not one of the companies selected to receive significant funding from the operation to mass-produce vaccine doses, according to The New York Times.
The article explains that one senior government official even said that "some officials at the Department of Health and Human Services have grown concerned about whether companies including Vaxart are trying to inflate their stock prices by exaggerating their roles in Warp Speed."
Following this news, on Vaxart’s stock price dropped 9% in one day, causing significant harm to investors.
