*Stock Advisor returns as of February 24, 2021


Corinne Cardina: Let's do a quick little high-level summary. Of the COVID vaccine stocks that we are talking about today, which one would you say is the most undervalued at today's price?

Adria Cimino: The most undervalued, I would say is Pfizer (PFE 1.59%). The stock price is little changed last year, down 8% so far this year. It trades at 10 times forward earnings, which is the lowest in about a year. So I'd say Pfizer.

Corinne Cardina: Awesome. What would you say is the most overrated COVID vaccine stock?

Adria Cimino: I'd have to say Ocugen (OCGN 2.98%), because as we mentioned, we really don't know what's going to happen with Covaxin, and the shares are up 300% since the start of the year. It's little bit too much too soon for me.

Corinne Cardina: Totally. The most promising COVID vaccine stock for long-term investors.

Adria Cimino: I'd say Novavax (NVAX -1.89%). I think Novavax always seems to stay ahead of the game. They're always the first to announce. They announced last year they were going to investigate a combined flu and COVID vaccine, and they really have the expertise to do so. Now they're moving quickly into the strain-specific booster, investigating that. So I think Novavax.

Corinne Cardina: Awesome. My last one for this lightning round is: What would you say is the dark horse COVID vaccine stock for investors to watch?

Adria Cimino: I think it's maybe Vaxart (VXRT 30.16%). People have lost faith because of the whole neutralizing antibodies thing. But I think it's possible they could surprise us if the T-cells turn out to be able to handle coronavirus alone or if they figure out their booster shot -- I should say booster dose, because it's an oral vaccine -- works. That could be something that could definitely be the dark horse. But still, again, remain cautious. It's a risky stock.
