Welcome to the May 2021 edition of the Sharesight20USA monthly trading snapshot, where we look at Sharesight users’ top 20 trades in US stocks on the Nasdaq, NYSE and NYSE American market (AMEX) over the month.

In this Sharesight20USA snapshot, buy and sell trades were strongly led by Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), which saw a steep decline in its stock price throughout May, particularly following the announcement that the company will no longer accept Bitcoin payments. The month’s top trades were followed by Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), which has also seen its stock price decline in May despite announcing record-breaking quarterly results at the end of April. Overall, it was a month of losses for some of the big names in tech, propelled by inflation fears and a mass crypto sell-off.
