What Company Will Win the Race for a COVID-19 Cure?

In this Monday edition of Advisors In Focus, we open the work week by highlighting the tickers and groups your fellow advisors and colleagues were researching with keen interest over the past 30 days, according to TrackStarIQ data. For example, based on the latest rankings, biotechnology remains the most read among industry groups and eight companies—such as Sorrento Therapeutics (SRNE) and Inovio (INO)—are in the top 20 most researched single stocks. The interest in companies that could potentially create vaccines and treatments for COVID-19 is part of an ongoing theme on Wall Street since late-March. The trend will likely continue this week with the President and other key figures of the government testing positive for the virus.
