The guru adds another new health care company to portfolio

Andreas Halvorsen (Trades, Portfolio) revealed he established a new position in PMV Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:PMVP) on Sept. 25, according to GuruFocus' Real-Time Picks.

Halvorsen, a "Tiger Cub," learned under Julian Robertson (Trades, Portfolio) of Tiger Management prior to founding Viking Global Investors in 1999. The firm considers fundamentals and management to be some of the most important aspects when identifying investment opportunities, but it also considers cyclical and industry trends.

The guru purchased 2.64 million shares during the first day of public trading for the company. The purchase had a 0.43% impact on the equity portfolio. The stock opened at $35 and spiked as high as $40.97 during its first day of trading.
