Top Tech Stocks To Invest In 2018

I recently bought shares of seven different companies. One of those companies was AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV). I had different reasons for buying each of the stocks. Some were in sectors in which I didn’t already have much exposure in my portfolio. That wasn’t the case with AbbVie, though. I already owned quite a few healthcare stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

AbbVie was unique. There wasn’t just one primary reason the stock caught my attention. Instead, multiple factors influenced my thinking. Here’s why I bought AbbVie stock — and why you might want to consider the biotech stock, too.
