The three stocks we are going to discuss today come from one of the hottest sectors.

This sector has made headlines since April as the coronavirus came into focus outside of China.

Now, the biotech sector is all the rage as companies scramble to find a suitable vaccine. Investors are searching for the vaccine stock that will beat all the others.

The S&P Biotech SPDR ETF (NYSE: XBI) — an exchange-traded fund (ETF) tracking some of the biggest biotech stocks — jumped more than 79% since reaching a low in March 2020.

It topped out at around $120 per share in July and has only pulled back slightly since.

The ETF holds companies like Sorrento Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: SRNE), OPKO Health Inc. (Nasdaq: OPK) and Moderna Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA). All of these companies could be classified as COVID-19 vaccine stocks.

It also includes one stock that Chief Investment Strategist Adam O’Dell recommended to his Green Zone Fortunes readers in May that’s up more than 100%.
