1. Pfizer (PFE)

Pfizer is trading at $53.73, with a 52 week low of $33.36 and a 52 week high of $54.46. With a Market Cap of $301.58 billion, PFE pays a dividend of 2.98%.

Pfizer expects a minimum of $65 billion sales of the Covid vaccine in 2022. The corporate has also been showing promising results from their new antiviral Covid pill, Paxlovid. Pfizer’s pill gives hospitals and doctors another weapon to battle the virus. CEO Albert Bourla said the study news “is a true game-changer within the global efforts to halt the devastation of this pandemic.” While the severity of the pandemic has ended, the pandemic is not yet over. What’s worse, there is a new variant of the virus called Omicron that has begun to instigate fear among people in the world again. By the looks of it, the virus will linger in communities for at least the next few years or so.

Pfizer’s vaccine results against the coronavirus appear effective so far, but it will be interesting to see how the company deals with the growing prevalence of the Omicron variant. Pfizer expects to collect billions in revenue within the next few months and the years to come. Having said that, there is no doubt that this company will make investors wealthy at the top of the road.

3. Trullieve Cannabis Corporation (TCNNF)

Trullieve is now the largest and most profitable as medical cannabis multi-state operator or MSO after having recently acquired Harvest Health & Recreation Acquisition. The majority of Trullieve’s operations are still based in Florida (being the only state where cannabis is legalized) but with the acquisition, they now operate in 11 different states, having 149 dispensaries nationwide. TCNNF is currently trading at $26.45, with a 52 week low of $23.38 and 52 week high of $53.73, and a market cap of $4.9 billion. Despite the legal restrictions on cannabis, the US cannabis industry is expected to double by 2025 to $41.5 Billion with the annual growth rate of 21%.

There are a few catalysts that could affect Trullieve’s growth. The first major potential would be federal legalization, which would allow cannabis decriminalization. This means cannabis could be used and sold anywhere in the country. Another one is 280E tax code revocation, which would highly increase their profitability. The third one would be the approval of Safe Approval Act that allows cannabis companies to do business with major banking institutions. If everything goes well for cannabis companies, TCNNF is likely to be a profit making machine.
