How the Biggest Tech Stock Winners From the Bull Market Are Doing Now
During the most recent bull market, the technology sector was perhaps the biggest winner. Tech stocks like Apple and Facebook saw massive gains and were more-or-less the tip of the spear for the markets shooting higher.
With the advent of this bear market, we’ve seen incredible losses across the board. Considering tech companies had some of the highest multiples and valuations going into this COVID-19 crisis, they were some of the first to give it back.
Going into February, Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) was an absolute market darling. The stock had more than doubled in the span of less than six months. The stock has been halved since February 19, when markets peaked.
