However, it is also important to consider that the market can be highly volatile, and there are always risks involved when investing in stocks. The ongoing pandemic and the associated economic uncertainty, as well as potential policy changes under the new administration, are some of the factors that can impact the market.
Additionally, it’s worth noting that the technology sector has been performing particularly well in recent months. Companies such as Netflix, Alphabet, and PagerDuty, all operate in the technology sector and have been benefiting from the increased adoption of digital services and technologies during the pandemic.
