Hello 2021

By Mon, Jan 4, 2021

Hey Scoopers,

The v-shaped recovery is what would 2020’s stock market be mostly remembered by. — More on that in the “Overall Market” section.

Beyond the overall market, guess which stocks were the best and worst of 2020? — More on that in the “What’s Up?” and “What’s Down?” sections.

Oh, by the way, from the list of companies announcing their earnings report this week, what are you watching? We’ve got two on our radar. — More on that in the “Water Cooler” section.

But, first, here is a recap of what happened in the market Thursday:

Market Recap

  • U.S. markets: All three indices finished the last trading day of the year in the green. Scroll down to the “Overall Market” section to read more.
  • Cryptocurrency: While stock market investors took a few days off, Bitcoin investors raged on. Bitcoin’s price sat above $32,000 per coin, an all-time high record that not too many people imagined it could have been achieved.

Welcome To 2021

The year 2020 finished with an iconic V-shaped recovery in the stock market price. We are now back to the same worries we wrapped last year: more than a decade of upward stock market rallies, overstretched prices, and the ever-growing importance of large technology companies dictating indices’ direction.

With that context, welcome to 2021!

 


More than 5000% Return

So what happened?

Shares of Bit Digital (Ticker: BTBT) were up by more than 5,389% in 2020. We looked at all the U.S.-listed stocks above $300 million in market cap and more than 10,000 in 30-day daily average trading volume. Bit Digital Inc, a company engaged in the bitcoin mining business, sat on the top of the best-performing stocks of 2020. While we would have intuitively called 2020 a year of COVID-19 vaccine stocks, Bitcoin mining took over the race in the last stretch of the year.

Gone To Zero

So what happened?

Shares of Apartment Investment & Management Co (Ticker: AIV) were down by more than 91.7% in 2020. This is the worst-performing stock of 2020 among the U.S.-listed companies, with a market cap of above $300 million and a 30-day trading average of more than 10,000. Of course, it is not surprising that a real estate investment and management company took the prize for the worst-performing stock in 2020.

Among the losers, you can see big names such as Renaissance Technologies and Ray Dalio’s fund. Both firms have been tremendously successful in the past. I guess there is still room for human intuition and judgment, and you can just trust the machines.
