Here's why they think that AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), Exelixis (NASDAQ: EXEL), and Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: VRTX) are stocks to buy hand over fist in December.

The number 12 is tightly linked with December. It's the 12th month, of course. There are 12 days of Christmas, according to the traditional carol. Allow me to add one more connection with 12 to the list.
