Keeping this in mind let’s take a look at the best stocks to buy and hold for 5 years:
5. CRISPR Therapeutics AG (NASDAQ:CRSP)
Cathie Wood had more than $700 million in CRSP at the end of September. That position is now worth more than $1.3 billion as CRSP shares skyrocketed in Q4. Renowned biotech investor billionaire Joe Edelman is also a huge CRSP fan with a $112 million position at the end of September.
CRSP is one of those stocks you have to buy and hold for the long-term as the stock didn’t do anything for investors since the middle of 2018 until the summer of 2020. Patient investors were rewarded as CRSP shares tripled in 2020. We believe there is still time to get into CRSP shares as this is a long-term play and the stock skyrocketed in 2020. Cathie Wood herself said that whenever things have gone this well for her, usually there’s a correction waiting around the bend. So, maybe investors should wait for a better entry point.
