Shares of U.K.-based drugmaker AstraZeneca were climbing 5.5% Wednesday morning on an anonymously sourced report from a prominent British journalist claiming the medical journal the Lancet will publish “positive news soon” on the Covid-19 vaccine the company is developing with Oxford University.

AstraZeneca (ticker: AZN) declined to comment on the report through an external spokesman.

The brief article, which appeared early Wednesday on the website of the British television network ITV, was by Robert Peston, ITV News’ political editor. Peston writes that the Lancet will publish positive news on the Oxford vaccine, and that the paper will show that the vaccine elicited both antibody and T-cell responses in study participants.

The article has few details, and the source isn’t identified or described. Still, investors appear to be taking the bait. AstraZeneca’s American depositary receipts, which closed Tuesday at $53.98, were trading at $56.92 by midmorning Wednesday.
