Four shares that have not let that hold them back today are listed below. Here’s why they are ending the week with a bang:

The Bubs Australia Ltd (ASX: BUB) share price is up 9.5% to 86.5 cents after the goat milk infant formula company signed a binding heads of agreement with the Chemist Warehouse Retail Group to form a four year strategic alliance relating to the sale and promotion of its products in Chemist Warehouse stores. The agreement is due to commence on June 1 and will see Bubs products sold across Chemist Warehouse retail stores throughout Australia, including its domestic and Tmall online stores.
