A new position and some additions

Today I started a long common stock position in Akcea Therapeutics, which was recently spun out of Ionis Pharmaceuticals (Ionis still owns the majority of Akcea).  I also added to existing long common stock positions in Arrowhead and Regulus, which are at depressed levels following clinical setbacks.

Closing out a winner

Today I made some trades, to close out a winning position, as well as add to existing positions and start a new one.  Specifically I closed my entire long call and common stock position in Ariad Pharmaceuticals, as the company was acquired by Takeda.  I used some of the proceeds to add to existing long common stock positions in Ionis Pharmaceuticals and Alnylam Pharmaceuticals.  In addition, I started a new long common stock position in Achaogen.  I also left some cash in reserve, which is now approximately 15% of the portfolio.

Some trades for the new year

Today I closed my long call position in the Financial Select Sector SPDR.  After a nice rally for financials since election day, it was time to close that position.  I used the proceeds to add to my existing long common stock positions in Ariad Pharmaceuticals and Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, which I hope will outperform in 2017.
