There’s no question that stocks in the Nasdaq composite index have seen massive gains over the last year and a half. Even after taking a back seat to cyclicals late last year, the index continues to hit new heights. That’s why investors should focus on Nasdaq stocks that offer the best long-term prospects. Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM), Amgen Inc. (AMGN), and Workday, Inc. (WDAY) are three that are certainly worth a look.
With all three of the major indexes continuing to break records, it may seem like most stocks are trading at very high prices. But there are still plenty of low-priced stocks that would make great additions to your portfolio. Stocks such as Sirius XM Holdings Inc., Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Nokia Corp. ADR are all trading below $10 but have the potential for higher gains in the months ahead.
