In the Q1 2021 Investor Letter, the fund highlighted a few stocks and Karuna Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:KRTX) is one of them. Karuna Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:KRTX) is a biotechnology company. In the last three months, Karuna Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:KRTX) stock lost 14%. Here is what the fund said:

“Karuna Therapeutics is a biotech company we got to know through our holding in PureTech Health, which founded Karuna. Karuna is unique in that the main asset it has developed is largely de-risked since it’s a reformulated drug where there’s ample historical data. The company has a Phase 3 trial in schizophrenia psychosis. This indication has a large unmet need, with about two-thirds of patients either inadequately treated. We think the company has the potential to be worth about double where the stock is trading ($117).”
