He analyzed several stocks whose prices have increased significantly since November 2020. These include American Express, Caterpillar, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Chevron, Apple, JP Morgan, Travelers and United Health Group.

American Express (AXP): AXP benefited from the post-COVID travel and leisure boom, but also because CEO Steve Squeri made a strategic decision to target younger demographics.

Caterpillar (CAT): CAT has benefited from federal infrastructure spending and CEO Jim Umpleby’s efforts to make the company less cyclical by focusing on returning capital to shareholders and diversifying away from China.

Microsoft (MSFT): CEO Satya Nadella’s decision to focus on its cloud infrastructure business, Azure, has paid off well for MSFT.

Goldman Sachs (GS): CEO David Solomon refocused the company on its core business of investment banking and serving the wealthy, causing GS’s stock price to soar.

Morgan Stanley (MS): CEO James Gorman’s reputation as a strong banker who rarely makes mistakes has instilled confidence in MS.

Chevron (CVX): CEO Mike Wirth’s smart decision not to overpay for Anadarko in 2019 has helped strengthen CVX’s financial position.

Apple (AAPL): AAPL’s success can be attributed to its strong service revenue stream and loyal customer base.

JPMorgan (JPM): CEO Jamie Dimon’s reputation as a great banker with a strong team has increased investor confidence in JPM.

Travelers (TRV): This insurance company has benefited from higher interest rates, which has boosted TRV’s share price.
