My Top Health Stock for 2021

This biotech company generates billions in revenue, promises leadership in its key market for at least the coming 15 years, and is trading at only about 20 times forward earnings (in a sector where 30 is low to average). The top health stock I'm betting on this year is Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: VRTX), a biotech with four treatments for cystic fibrosis (CF) on the market. Vertex is also developing therapies for blood disorders, pain, and a lung and liver disorder known as alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD).
