The move by TikTok, which is owned by Chinese technology company ByteDance, came as Microsoft became the latest US tech group to push back against the new restrictions in the semi-autonomous territory. TikTok, whose decision to quit the Hong Kong market was first reported by Reuters, said in a statement that it had decided to stop operations “in light of recent events”.

Halfway through the year, those who invest in the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC) are still down on the year, but most are breathing a big sigh of relief after having suffered far larger losses earlier in the year. In some ways, it's questionable whether DexCom (NASDAQ: DXCM) truly deserves a place on this list. The company has been public for 15 years, but it just joined the S&P 500 Index in May.
When investors think about e-commerce stocks, they often overlook Visa (NYSE: V) and Mastercard (NYSE: MA). Many online purchases are made with credit and debit cards, and Visa and Mastercard operate the two largest card processing networks in the world. Like an online toll road, Visa and Mastercard collect a small fee each time someone uses one of their cards to make an online transaction -- and the number of times this happens is soaring.
Here is a sneak peek into four tech stocks, which hold promise for stellar performances in the upcoming earnings season despite the coronavirus crisis.

Zoom etiquette classes, digital job shadowing and online scavenger hunts await the thousands of students who begin Wall Street’s first year of virtual internships on Monday. Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase all welcome their summer cohorts this week and will seek to capture the essence of one of Wall Street’s oldest rites of passage — in a world where interns cannot step foot in their offices. The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the traditionally immersive — and highly-competitive — experience of banking internships, where eager twenty-somethings learn technical skills and get hands-on experience, all while trying to convince senior executives to hire them full-time.
Regardless of whether you're a longtime investor or someone who recently began putting their money to work in the stock market, there's nothing that could have prepared you for what 2020 has offered up. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has completely upended societal norms and pushed the U.S. unemployment rate to levels not seen in nearly nine decades. After all, every single stock market correction in history (excluding the COVID-19 bear market) has been erased by a bull market rally.

Shares of Slack Technologies (NYSE: WORK) climbed 38% in the first six months of the year, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, driven in part by the trend toward working from home. Although the COVID-19 crisis has had a devastating impact on countless businesses, it's boosting demand for Slack's technology. Slack's messaging platform -- which enables quick and seamless communication among distributed workforces -- has never been more needed than during this time of social distancing.
Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) recently announced that it will permanently close all of its brick-and-mortar Microsoft Stores worldwide. In a press release, Microsoft VP David Porter noted that the tech giant's "product portfolio has evolved to largely digital offerings, and our talented team has proven success serving customers beyond any physical location." Microsoft stated that it wouldn't lay off any staff as part of the reorganization, and that it would continue paying its retail employees as they transferred to remote sales, training, and support positions.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is likewise an important but oft-misunderstood technology. Last month, I talked up Alphabet, salesforce.com, and NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA). When talking about AI hardware, it's easy to default to NVIDIA.
After having plunged during the first three months of the year, the Dow Jones Industrials (DJINDICES: ^DJI) have bounced back sharply from their worst levels of the year. Amid a couple dozen losing stocks in the Dow, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is doing a lot to limit the average's losses. What's particularly impressive about the software giant's 31% rise so far this year is that it comes on the heels of an even sharper 55% climb for Microsoft in 2019.
