We have seen a lot of wild things occur in 2021, but hey, shouldn’t we have expected that considering it’s the encore act to a truly unforgettable 2020?
With the way big technology stocks such as Apple (APPL), Roku (ROKU), Amazon (AMZN), and Alphabet (GOOG) performed in 2020, one may think these stocks would continue to be big winners during the early part of 2021.

Oh, and have I mentioned these marijuana ETFs are the best performing non-leveraged ETFs year-to-date? Let’s take a look at some of them and which ones I personally prefer as an investment option. Continue reading "This Sector Has The "HIGH-est" Performing ETFs"
