Corinne Cardina: Last question. Any tips that you would give investors for investing in the coronavirus vaccine landscape? I ask you this every week. I just want to make sure that your advice hasn't changed given the new updates and developments that have happened.

Keith Speights: I am being steady-Eddy on this, Corinne.

If you are a conservative investor, risk-averse, go with a stock like a Johnson & Johnson (JNJ 0.87%). It's a Dividend Aristocrat, healthcare giant, been around for nearly forever.

Brian Orelli, who is a fellow Fool, has his Ph.D. in biology. Brian wrote a great article a few years ago that I still remember. He said, "Anytime is a great time to buy J&J if you hold on long enough." That is the kind of stock that a conservative investor would want to go with.

If you're more risk-tolerant, looking for more aggressive growth, a Moderna (MRNA -3.00%), perhaps. BioNTech (BNTX 0.43%), Novavax (NVAX 8.40%) is a possibility there.

If you're really aggressive, you could go with one of these earlier-stage companies like an Arcturus (ARCT -0.05%) or Vaxart (VXRT -9.29%), like we just mentioned.

If you're somewhere in the middle, I like Pfizer (PFE 0.76%). It is going to have a much better growth story going forward, and they also have a great dividend. Pfizer's kind of good middle-of-the-road pick.
