Frequently Asked Questions

There are multiple ways to look at any stock. It may include looking at fundamentals like dividends, earnings over the last few years, and ratios like price-to-earnings (P/E). The other way might be to look at what the future may hold. In the event of a large-scale demand in the future for a particular drug or vaccine that a company has produced or is likely to produce in the near term, the company's stock may find more backers. A look at what the company provides in the market, which can include hospital services, might be a good way to look at healthcare stocks.

There is a variety of choices available to the investor. Stocks represent companies that operate in sectors like healthcare, oil and gas, cannabis, and the list is long. The best stocks may relate to a particular industry, for example, the clean energy sector which has participants like Brookfield Renewable Partners, and Northland Power, or they can be a diversified mix of clean energy stocks and other sectors like oil and energy. In order to pick the best, the investor must study a little about the near-term market prospects for the related sector.

Considering the market environment at the time of writing this, Verde Agritech PLC (TSX: NPK) appears to be one of the fastest-growing stocks in Canada, with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 114.3. This crop nutrition and input stock has zoomed by over 450 per cent in the last 12 months. On the financial front, Verde Agritech expanded its 2021 net profit by 540 per cent year-on-year (YoY), and it expects 2022 revenue to reach C$ 72.26 million. However, investors should note that a stock’s performance can change depending on market conditions.

Healthcare stocks represent entities that provide arguably one of the most basic necessities to the wider world. They become even more crucial at the time of a pandemic or a large-scale disease outbreak in any particular region. Healthcare remains a growing sector as cures for all diseases have yet to be identified, and new ones like Covid-19 can crop up at any time. This makes healthcare stocks an interesting watch for a lot of investors.
