It has been a disappointing day of trade for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) on Thursday. At the time of writing, the benchmark index is down 1% to 5,869.3 points.

Four shares that have not let that hold them back are listed below. Here's why they are pushing higher today:

The Iron Road Limited (ASX: IRD) share price has rocketed 59% higher to 17.5 cents. This morning the iron ore company announced that it has entered into a joint development agreement with Macquarie Capital and Eyre Peninsula Co-operative Bulk Handling. The agreement provides the framework to advance development and financing plans for the proposed $250 million Cape Hardy Stage I multi-user, multi-commodity port facility.

The Nuchev Ltd (ASX: NUC) share price is up 7% to $1.99. This morning the junior infant formula company announced a strategic partnership with Blue Ocean International. Blue Ocean is a top tier distributor and will manage the sales and distribution of Nuchev's premium Oli6 goat infant formula brand across a number of key platforms and territories in China.

The Telix Pharmaceuticals Ltd (ASX: TLX) share price is up 3% to $1.83. Investors have been buying the biopharmaceutical company's shares after it provided an update on its TLX591-CDx product. According to the release, Telix has submitted a New Drug Application to the United States Food and Drug Administration for the prostate cancer imaging product.

The Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE) share price has climbed 1.5% to $9.04. The catalyst for this gain appears to be a broker note out of Credit Suisse. According to the note, the broker has upgraded the wine company's shares to an outperform rating with a $12.30 price target. It made the move largely on valuation grounds but also on the belief that the Penfolds brand image has been unaffected by anti-dumping investigations in China.
