Wharton’s Jeremy Siegel told CNBC on Tuesday that he doesn’t think many tech names including Apple will outperform the broader market next year.

The professor of finance said that he is not remaining bullish on high-flying stocks in the Nasdaq. He said soaring tech stocks including Tesla, Zoom, and Docusign got “crazy,” while FAANG names are more solid, but still won’t beat the market in 2021.

“I think among the Apples and all the rest, they’re high. I don’t think they’re going to outperform in 2021 as the economy reopens and we get out of COVID, but they’re not as crazy,” Siegel said.

Siegel added that investors in the broader market do not need to worry about the large moves downward in tech stocks.

“If you’re in the S&P, I wouldn’t worry. But if you have all your assets in those high fliers, I would be very careful right now,” he said.
