Bavarian Nordic A/S is having a bit of a meme-stock moment, with retail traders buying up shares in the monkeypox vaccine maker as cases of the virus steadily rise.

Shares in the Danish biotech, which makes the only monkeypox vaccine approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), have gained 69% since hitting a low in early May.
