Why Novavax Stock Buckled Today

Shares of Novavax (NASDAQ: NVAX) had declined by nearly 11% as of 10:56 a.m. ET on Thursday amid the Nasdaq's broader decline of more than 3.8%. Its shares are likely falling due to the Federal Reserve's decision yesterday to hike interest rates, which disproportionately hurts growth stocks like Novavax. Plus, the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) nonbinding advisory committee also ruled yesterday that the coronavirus shots made by Moderna and Pfizer are likely to be safe and effective for infants, and both are major Novavax competitors in the vaccine market.
