(CNN) — Wall Street’s love affair with technology stocks shows no sign of stopping.
Investors have flocked to tech giants, such as Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google owner Alphabet, this year in hope that they will post strong sales and earnings growth — despite concerns about the Covid-19 outbreak crippling the global economy and US job market.
The United States is now officially in recession and worries about social and racial unrest have dominated the headlines since the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was arrested by police officers in Minneapolis, last month.
The broader market has rallied along with big tech stocks. The S&P 500 inched back into positive territory for the year Monday for the first time since February.
Companies in traditionally more value-oriented sectors like energy, retail, health care, and financial services have also enjoyed big rebounds since the bottom hit its low point of the year in March.
