Adding to three positions
These three stocks gave us a good place to add a few shares.
Coherus (CHRS): Bought 125 shares @ $19.11
This is a new holding. I was waiting for a lower price, but today we learned about a new drug that Coherus has licensed from Chinese Biotech Innovent. Once investors digest what this drug means for Coherus I suspect the share price will reflect the added value.
MarketAxess Holdings (MKTX): Bought 7 shares @ $365.98
This is an existing holding where we owned 3 shares. On todays pull back I added 7 shares. As a company that benefits from market volatility, I'm happy to own more of this company.
NVIDIA (NVDA): Bought 10 shares @ $247
This is an existing holding. I added 10 shares on today's pull back and will likely add again in the future. NVDA is a core holding that I'm not likely to ever sell. Todays pull back is based on perceived competition from AMD in a slice of Nvidia's business. I disagree with investors who are selling it off.
