Pfizer is attempting to create a scalable COVID-19 vaccine. It has been in the news lately for this effort, saying that it could be ready by late November.

Even as one of the top companies, the stock has room to grow, given the explosion of online sales. This is only expected to continue through the holiday season. Online shopping, in general, is likely to become the de-facto method of operating in the future. This is largely because of the cost avoidance in not requiring physical stores.
Besides its online shopping service, Amazon has other large revenue-generating streams, most notably its AWS cloud service. Apps like Robinhood helps you buy fractional shares of Amazon — meaning you don’t have to shell out the entire $3,272 for it.
