The Incannex Healthcare Ltd (ASX: IHL) share price has been on a roll lately.

It has rocketed 21.4% over the last fortnight despite no price-sensitive news having been released by the clinical stage developer of medicinal cannabinoid pharmaceuticals.

At the time of writing, the Incannex share price is trading at 34 cents, 1.49% higher than its previous close.

For context, the broader market is also in the green. The All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) has lifted 1.1% right now.

So, what might be driving the ASX healthcare share higher lately? Let’s take a look.

What’s been going right for Incannex lately?

The Incannex share price has rallied in recent weeks as the company prepares to be included in the S&P/ASX 300 Index (ASX: XKO).

The healthcare stock was added to the index as part of its September rebalance alongside 15 other shares. Monday marked its first day on the ASX 300.

Its addition likely bolstered demand for its stock as funds tracking the ASX 300 were forced to buy in.

Its intended inclusion was announced on 2 September. The company’s CEO Joel Latham responded to the news on 6 September, saying:

We’re delighted to be recognized for inclusion in the ASX 300 index to be listed among the largest and most recognizable companies in Australia.

Being listed in the index is a precursor investment condition for many domestic and international investment institutions so we are excited for the possibilities this recognition may bring.

Thus, its new home on the ASX 300 might explain some of the Incannex share price’s recent gains.

Incannex is also likely in the front of investors’ minds after the company released its annual report this morning.

The report details the company’s financial year 2022, a year that Incannex chair Troy Valentine said brought “significant advancements in clinical development across [its] entire portfolio”. Valentine continued:

Our strong financial position and having strong investor visibility in Australia and the United States gives us the necessary comfort to conduct our research programs unimpeded and at pace as we focus on delivering our novel pharmaceutical products and therapies to patients in need.

Incannex currently boasts 28 projects for which proof of concept has been established.

While the last fortnight has been good for the Incannex share price, its longer-term performance has been less positive.

For comparison, the ASX 300 has fallen 11% year to date and 6% over the last 12 months.
