The stock market indexes are at all-time highs now, even though the world is going crazy. The trade war tension grows each day, and a presidential impeachment inquiry is underway. The world is under serious pressure. However, usually, the stock market moves higher despite the macroeconomic and political concerns. Now is a good time to invest in high-quality stocks.
Here are three leaders in their representative markets, that might interest you: Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: VRTX), Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL) (NASDAQ: GOOG) and The Trade Desk (NASDAQ: TTD).
Vertex is a well-known American biopharmaceutical. Recently, Vertex won the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for the cystic fibrosis CF drug, Trikafta. This is a significant milestone for the company. There is a probability that the drug will reach peak annual sales of more than $10 billion.
