100 Best Stocks Of 2021: See Who Joins Moderna And BioNTech

 100 Best Stocks Of 2021: See Who Joins Moderna And BioNTech

The top 100 companies in 2021 reflect the gains in diverse sectors as the economy recovered from Covid-19’s initial jolt. Among the best stocks of the year, biotech and medical companies feature prominently, but so do financial, energy, retail, software and chip stocks.

Names like BioNTech (BTNX), Moderna (MRNA), Callon Petroleum (CPE), Upstart (UPST), and Boot Barn (BOOT) all made the cut. And despite the collapse of several meme stocks later in the year, GameStop (GME) and Roblox (RBLX) still made the list.

All companies featured have an average daily trading volume of 100,000 shares or more and were priced at $12 or higher at the start of the year. Closed-end funds excluded. Prices and other data shown are as of Dec. 31, 2021.
