(Bloomberg) -- Snowflake Inc. and Palantir Technologies Inc., two of the best performing technology stocks to debut in 2020, ended the year with a whimper as investors locked in profits.
The stocks both fell more than 6% Thursday, wrapping up the worst week on record for both companies since listing in September. Cloud-computing company Snowflake declined 13% this week. Palantir, which makes data-mining software, shed 15%.
