Wall Street has known its share of legends, but few of them have made as big a splash as “the Man Who Broke the Bank of England.” That nickname belongs to George Soros who earned the tag after famously betting against the British Pound in 1992; following the Black Wednesday crash, the hedge fund manager pocketed a $1 billion in a single day. This is the stuff that Wall Street legends are made of. By then Soros was already incredibly successful and in the midst of steering his Quantum Fund to dec
The technology powering virtual reality (VR) experiences has significantly improved in recent years. This technology is powering real-world applications like virtual walkthroughs of buildings and products still on the drawing board, or collaborations with colleagues in a virtual meeting room.

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) recently became a hot topic after CEO Satya Nadella sold more than half of his shares for about $285 million on Nov. 22 and 23. When Nadella took over as Microsoft's third CEO in 2014, the tech giant was in serious trouble.

Although it's been a dud of a performer in 2021, telehealth platform Teladoc Health (NYSE: TDOC) is a holding I fully expect to deliver 10X (or greater) returns by the time I'm ready to enjoy retirement. While some folks would opine that Teladoc was lucky to be in the right place at the right time when the pandemic struck, I'd contend that they're not looking at the bigger picture.

(Reuters) -Three U.S. House Democrats on Monday asked the head of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to provide more details of the agency's oversight of Boeing's 737 MAX and questioned whether the planemaker had been held fully accountable.

The letter said these included Boeing's apparent violation of its approved 737 MAX type design, as well as evidence of an internal plan to downplay the significance of a key safety system called MCAS tied to both fatal crashes.
