The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Coinbase (COIN)

With Bitcoin (BTC) breaking through $50,000 again and Ether (ETH) making a run at its all-time high, crypto exchange Coinbase (COIN) saw a reasonable +7.46% pop this week which was enough to earn it the spot of the Week’s Biggest Winner.

Dow Chemical (DOW)

The Delta variant of Covid-19 continues to smack the economy around. Combine the virus with an infrastructure bill whose future is still relatively uncertain, and you’ve got mediocre news for any construction play, Dow Chemical (DOW) included. DOW dropped -4.99% this week which was enough to land it as the Week’s Biggest Loser.

This Week’s Moves

IDEXX Laboratories (IDXX): Added to Position

I added a small amount back into my IDEXX Laboratories (IDXX) position when it pulled back on Wednesday this week with a buy order filling at $667.42. Since that only represents a discount of -3.423% off the sale that went through on
July 28 at $691.11, I only replaced about 7.23% of the shares I sold.

The buy still keeps the position very much playing with the house’s money with a per-share “cost” of -$132.83 (each share in the position adds $132.83 to the portfolio’s bottom line in addition to the current value of the share). From here, my next buy target is slightly lower around $631.90 and I have no current sell targets at this time.

IDXX closed the week at $688.06, up +3.09% from where I added Wednesday.
