    April was a mixed bag between economic strength, inflation scares, and corporate earnings, but on the whole, the stock market has behaved relatively well in 2021. And while there is always uncertainty in the market, a case for strong diversification has never been clearer. Whether “sell in May and go away” will come to fruition this month or not will remain to be seen, but with vaccinations rolling out across the country and states opening up, there is surely some pent-up demand for consumer spending, the largest part of the American economy. With that being said, if you need some help deciding on what stocks to buy our Artificial Intelligence ("AI") algorithms at Q.ai have identified some standout stocks to consider for this month to help you out. Our AI systems have picked Top Tech Stocks, Top Consumer Stocks, Top Quality Value Stocks, Top Growth Stocks, and Top Dividend Stocks to assist you.
