Emerging Leaders in BioTech and Pharmaceuticals
When the Nasdaq index tanked with massive layoffs announced, there were still emerging leaders who appeared. Therefore, keeping your eyes open and looking for investment opportunities is essential.
Obviously, it becomes much harder to pick the right stocks in the bear markets. But, focusing on emerging industries and groups should provide competitive edges because these stocks are already being noticed by smart investors who bought the uptrend.
More importantly, these emerging leaders need to be strong in the short-term (1 month), medium-term (3 months), and long-term (Year-To-Date) performance. In most cases, these stocks are making a fresh 52-week high now.
