    These are the best technology stocks of 2021

    Traders work on the floor at the New York Stock Exchange. Brendan McDermid | Reuters Technology stocks have been far from a sure bet since 2021 began its stretch run in mid-November.

    Have you heard about the September exodus? More than four million Americans quit their jobs that month, shattering the record for resignations previously set the month before.

TalentLMS and Workable reported recently that 72% of US-based tech employees are thinking of quitting their job in the next 12 months. It’s not just the US. The Great Resignation is a global phenomenon. Pundits point to many causes for the trend, from government stimulus checks to
