Even before FD :D

No doubt not through going on insider trading information.

Patently not. This was three or four years back I think. A sensible move of a big fish taking a stake in a promising newcomer.

Britain’s most valuable public company is holding a stake worth more than $2 billion in Moderna after shares in the American biotechnology group soared amid hopes for its coronavirus vaccine.

Astrazeneca made an initial $240 million investment in Moderna in 2013, about five months after Pascal Soriot became chief executive of the pharmaceuticals group, and it raised its stake to 9 per cent in 2016 through a $140 million investment.

That is only true if you are betting; if you are investing then the advice from Warren Buffet is to buy a good stock and hold it. He seems to have done rather well from following that mantra.

That is for the long term - this forum flutter was never intended to be like that. If you are looking for quick gains you need to aim at those at the buzzing end of the economy ready to move quick and accepting that it may all end up falling to pieces.

Some recovery this week led by the airlines, whilst the plague ships are once again in contention. I suppose we could say they were buoyant?

The Whitbread rights issue will make the share look poorer value here than it is in reality.

Last week £26,833.39 / 27.8%

This week, just a few pence under the best ever total from two weeks ago.

I told you it was interesting.

Lots of movement at the top of the table with FD's drug dealers sliding downwards and IAG climbing like the proverbial bat out of Wuhan, with EasyJet ascending also. Plague ships are back as the chart toppers having more than doubled the original investment. Overall a near 12% gain for the portfolio over the previous week.

For the first time since we started, every share has positive growth.

Not a good week with some losses from last week's high.

tKF will, of course, have bought into the Whitbread rights issue and pocketed a worthwhile gain, not reflected here.
