Third quarter earnings season is winding down, but there is still plenty of trading news to get your teeth into at the start of another week of stock market action.
In general news, US stock futures were flying high on Monday. Meanwhile, oil prices had dipped on reports that the Biden administration is likely to offer access to strategic reserves. Below is some of the hottest equities news:
Electric car manufacturer Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) found itself in the news once again. The company’s stock price fell by almost 3% on Friday and was down in pre-market trading today. The dip comes after founder Elon Musk sold $6.9bn worth of stock last week.
Gores Guggenheim Inc (NASDAQ:GGPI) was on the rise after Polestar, which the special purpose acquisition company announced a reverse merger with in September, said it would go public with an enterprise value of $20bn.
Altamira Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CYTO) shares rocketed on Friday. This followed positive testing results for the company’s new nasal spray, which may be effective against COVID.
Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ:RIOT) saw its share price jump by over 11% on Friday and was up in pre-market trading. This comes after major cryptos Bitcoin and Ethereum, which the fate of the business is closely tied to, traded strongly over the weekend.
