Stock picks to buy, cheap alternatives to big tech: Morgan Stanley

  • Strategist Adam Virgadamo says the pandemic will speed up that change, and investors don’t have to buy tech stocks to reap the rewards. 
  • He’s compiled a list of innovators that have been outperforming and look like they will continue to do based on their strategies and investments in their businesses.
