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
-- in which its stock shed 3.6%, shares of semiconductors star Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) are bouncing back Monday morning, up 2.8% as of 11 a.m. ET. The reason: I suspect investors are shrugging off last week's bad coronavirus news and focusing on some good Nvidia news that got overlooked. Specifically, I mean the news that on Friday analysts at investment bank Bank of America doubled down on their buy rating on Nvidia stock.
Electric vehicle stocks are back to trading more on the progress in their business, and less on splashy IPO hype.

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. Microsoft's cloud business became its core growth engine, and the company's revenue surged from $86.8 billion in fiscal 2014 to $168.1 billion in fiscal 2021, which ended this June, as its earnings per share more than tripled.

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. For instance, in the six years leading up to the pandemic, Teladoc's average annual sales grew by 74%.

Hedge-fund luminary Bill Ackman over the weekend says the new omicron variant of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 could be bullish for stocks if it results in mild to moderate symptoms for those who contract it.
This week I see AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC), American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL), and Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK) as stocks that you may want to consider steering clear from this week. The stock's valuation is out of whack within the industry if we look ahead to next year, but betting against AMC has often proved painful in 2021. AMC shares surprisingly slipped just 3% on Friday as news of a fresh COVID-19 variant rattled the overall market.
