Minor win for the market majority 🥇

The local marketed moved with less conviction than Aussie voters over the weekend; while chewing over the Federal election outcome the S&P/ASX 200 closed up a measly 0.05% to 7148.9. Materials once again supported the broader market - adding 0.8%. Codan was the stock specific winner, ending the day up 14.5% after flagging its second half profits should match its record $50 million first half success. Imugene managed to escape its recent rut after telling investors its in a strong position to round out the financial year; it finished up 12.5%. Elders galloped ahead another 8.9% thanks to a 30-40% boost to its guidance and $0.28 per share dividend. On the other side of the ballot, Polynono and Novonix shed 7.5% and 4.3% respectively. The price action reflected a slow start to the week on the data front and concern about China and COVID, but then again markets may just be warming up before the FOMC meeting minutes on Wednesday. Our top three VODs: Moody Monday on the marketsSector picks for nervous investorsPosition your portfolio for tougher times ahead: Braitling Hosted on Acast.

Five out of five for energy ✋

Australia's dominance in the resources space in these volatile times saw the local market open up strongly. Energy and commodities more broadly were bid up at the open, with financials joining the blue-chip exuberance. At the top of the ladder, eight out of the top 10 were resources, including lithium plays AVZ Minerals, Allkem and Liontown. Old-school BHP and Whitehaven Coal also featured. Financials closed up 0.7% higher, with the big five and insurance all closing higher.In contrast, in the wake of FOMC Chair Powell hinting at 100bp of tightening across the next two meetings, growth stocks took a pounding, led by 4-5% declines in Block, Zip and Appen. Overall, the market defied gravity (though lost a touch of steam to the close) with S&P/ASX200 closing up 63 points or 0.9%.Top 3 VODs:Lithium stock picks taking you beyond the commodity super cycle A blockchain fun fact to blow your mindFive contrarian stocks to whet your appetite Hosted on Acast.

Just another meandering Monday ↘️

The market opened well and traded in a sea of green, but as the oil price rose and US futures fell (and no prime rate cut from China) the red started to creep back in across the screens. Tech led early gains as aggressive front-end rate hikes ironically drag down long-end yields, in turn boosting growth stocks. Block jumped 9%, and the info tech sector ended 2.5% higher. CSL dragged down the healthcare sector, while the entire gold complex closed lower. The wooden spoon went to De Grey Mining as gold lost its luster, closing down over 7%. Magellan Financial was hit as Hamish Douglass stepped away from the board. If investors love central bank-speak there are around 30 opportunities to tune in, otherwise it’s a quiet one for market leads. No wonder the S&P/ASX200 closed slightly lower on the day down 0.2%.Our top 3 VODS:Three lithium stocks as a rising tide lifts all boats"Closer to four than two"The jury's still out on China Hosted on Acast.

Red alert 🚨🚨🚨

No sugarcoating today; it was blood in the streets, falling knives hitting the pavement, baby out with the bathwater, choose your poison. The S&P/ASX200 posted its most significant two-day per cent decline since June 2020. Plenty of corporate news dropped early, but even good news was swamped in the negative sentiment. The sell-off gathered momentum after the shock inflation print, with core inflatoin at an eight-year high of 2.7% and rate hikes brought forward by even the dovish of doves. Takeover talk was confirmed by Zip and Sezzle, although only Sezzle closed higher +8%. Codan’s ripped higher +16% after flagging it will post a record first half result. Thinning trade ahead of tomorrow’s holiday likely didn’t help, and more wine is needed for Australia Day, that’s for sure. Let’s end there, the S&P/ASX200 falling to 6961 or -2.5%.Our top three VODs:Keep calm and carry on investingMorningstar's stock picks for America's impending "normalisation"Stocks to own when Chicken Little comes calling Hosted on Acast.

Beforepay's IPO aftermath 😬

That was a decent session to start the trading week with the ASX ending +0.3%, at 7,417. Better than expected Chinese GDP data and a surprise PBOC rate cut helped improve sentiment through the afternoon, though it still feels very much like a market in 'holiday mode.' On that, US markets are closed for Martin Luther King Jr Day ahead of quarterly earnings this week. BeforePay's share price crashed and burned today; spare a thought for investors sitting on a 42% loss on day one of trade. In better news, Wesfarmers investors shrugged off a warning about Omicron's impact on sales at its stores ex-Bunnings, and Adbri's share price responded favourably to a lime supply deal extension. Tomorrow's looking good already with Lynas and Rio Tinto's quarterly updates due. See you then. Our top three VODs: Stock picks to stay on the right side of the 'shortage economy' tradeSell retail and buy staplesBeforepay bludgeoned on debut Hosted on Acast.

The S&P/ASX200 closed lower this Tuesday dropping 19 points

The S&P/ASX200 closed lower this Tuesday dropping 19 points. Bar technology and healthcare which saw steep selling and buying respectively, most sector moves were unconvincing. Ironically, the Australian market is actually outperforming most Asian region peers today. As of writing, the Hang Seng is down more than 1%, not helped by more whispers of a tech-financial services clampdown by Beijing. Some of our tier two commodity plays like Alumina and Sims were among the best performers while Ansell and Worley copped the worst of the selling. Two companies also held AGMs today - CSL and Telstra. Both reaffirmed earnings guidance as well as future strategy. For the macro-minded, US JOLTS is out at 11:30pm AEDT tonight along with a healthy dose of Fed Speak. Our Top three VODs: Want insurance in your portfolio?

After five straight weeks of losses, the X2C finished this glorious Friday up 0.8%

After five straight weeks of losses, the X2C finished this glorious Friday up 0.8%. It's green across the screen with every single sector recording at least a solid flat. Things are looking sweet across the region as well, as of writing. For no obvious reason, Magellan was the best performer finishing up 5.6%. In total contrast, EML Payments finished down 14.19% because of more woes with its Irish subsidiary. The company says there may be a more material impact on its balance sheet than expected. Woolworths was also caught in the crossfire as it settled a class action over allegations it underpaid thousands of its workers. Not cool, guys. For the insomniacs/night owls, NFPs are out at 11:30pm AEDT.

The S&P/ASX200 closed up this Thursday, climbing 50.20 points following a strong lead from Wall Street.

The S&P/ASX200 closed up this Thursday, climbing 50.20 points following a strong lead from Wall Street. All of the major Asian markets are also higher as of writing. Super Retail Group was up 8% after UBS upgraded the company to buy from neutral - saying its poised to benefit from the post lockdown recovery. That reasoning should warrant a friendly reminder for everyone that only NSW is out of lockdown on Monday. Collins Foods also got the buying treatment, finishing the day up 6.5%. This after confirming it would be running KFC's Dutch operations. Hot sauce anyone? In contrast, traders took their profits in hot names like Domino's Pizza and Whitehaven Coal which finished down 2% and 6% respectively. Now that you know all that, sit down and watch our day's best interviews. Our top three VODs: Stuck in the Middle (in disinflationary territory); Northern Trust's 2026 investment outlookBogdan's defensive playsRoger's two stocks for cruising into the recovery trade Hosted on Acast.

The S&P/ASX200 closed down on Wednesday, dropping 79 points or 1.1% and setting a new 50-day low.

The S&P/ASX200 closed down on Wednesday, dropping 79 points or 1.1% and setting a new 50-day low. The bottom performing stocks were Pinnacle Investment (PNI), shedding 9%, while Tyro Payments (TYR) and Chalice Mining (CHN), gave away 6% each. Heavy falls across the IT, health care and energy sectors followed in the wake of Wall Street losses as rising bond yields and another US debt ceiling impasse exacerbated the selling in tech stocks on the NASDAQ. Subsequently it was a gold miners day at home, Regis resources (RRL) and St Barbara (SBM) the top beneficiaries, up 6.2% and 5.9% respectively. The local index has lost 1.4% over the last five days, but remains 9.25% ahead on this time last year. Next up is Thursday - or as we say in Old English “Þūnresdæg” - so named for the marvel comics character played by that guy up in Byron. Our top three VODs: Four quality 'buys' when they're in the redDon't be a hero, hold tight and buy these three stocksThere can be only one crypto, or can there?

The S&P/ASX200 closed higher Tuesday, gaining 26 points or 0.4% to 7,274 after crashing early to a new 50-day low

The S&P/ASX200 closed higher Tuesday, gaining 26 points or 0.4% to 7,274 after crashing early to a new 50-day low. The miners led the rebound, but yielded late in the day to the energy, consumer discretionary and IT sectors which all rose in afternoon business. Concerns around a US debt default and potential fallout from the ruination of Chinese property giant Evergrande were magnified by the vacuum of a Chinese market holiday. Hong Kong's Hang Seng, smacked 3.5%. At home, Ausnet (AST) liking the takeover attention, up 10.7%, APA Group (APA) really not liking the takeover attention, down 5.5%. But on the whole it must be said: "...done good, played strong!"Our top three VODs: Hot money in, hot money out; Steven Everett's explanation for the market pullbackJun Bei is excited!

The S&P/ASX200 closed lower Wednesday, dropping 20 points or 0.3% to 7,417. Weak overnight leads and flat oil prices played out across the banking and energy sectors and materials were weighed down heavily by the big iron ore miners on falling futures in Dalian (where I used to live). And on China, August economic activity came in weaker than expected, key suppliers BHP Group (BHP) and Rio Tinto (RIO) ending the session 3.5% and 1.9% lower. Shares in AGL Energy (AGL) struck a record low, down 7.3%. AMP Limited (AMP) also touching a fresh intraday low, ending 1.5% weaker. Happiness, though for Pilbara Minerals (PLS), a cracking overnight digital auction for garden variety spodumene. Great prices for low grade lithium, the stock closing up 8.9%.

The S&P/ASX200 closed up Tuesday, gaining 12 points or 0.2% to 7,437 after tailwinds drove the market higher on light trading volumes.

The S&P/ASX200 closed up Tuesday, gaining 12 points or 0.2% to 7,437 after tailwinds drove the market higher on light trading volumes. Wall Street ended mixed, the NASDAQ lower. Oil hit six-week highs and iron ore ten-month lows. That scenario largely played here in the morning session as tech stocks tanked, and the energy names collected. RBA Governor Phillip Lowe spoke at lunchtime, on "Delta, the Economy and Monetary Policy", but really about how rates won't rise until 2024. From there the market picked up, the Real Estate sector coming home with a wet sail, Scentre Group (SCG) climbing 3.2%. The top performers today were Beach Energy (BPT) and Chalice Mining (CHN) up 7.5% and 6.55% respectively. Retrospectively, Brambles (BXB) perhaps should not have given any guidance today, at a time when no one else is, down 8.8%.Our top three VODs:An update on Heath's "high risk" uranium stock callsYour guide to investable Australian semiconductor companies: KennisMathan is hitting the gym, having a drink and not doing his banking in this buy hold sell Hosted on Acast.

The S&P/ASX200 closed up Friday, gaining 37 points or 0.5% to 7,407. Let's wrap this one up: coal rose, iron ore and oil fell. Materials and energy led gains. The banks were a pass. Not Macquarie (MQG), 0.6% lower. Santos (STO), Oil Search (OSH) got their $21 billion merge on. Stock of the day was a rebounding Nickel Mines (NIC) up 8.3%. Polynovo (PNV) went ex-COO, losing 5.5%.

The S&P/ASX200 closed sharply lower Thursday, dropping 143 points or 1.9% to 7,370, as fears of a global pullback coalesced into some broad-based selling here at home

The S&P/ASX200 closed sharply lower Thursday, dropping 143 points or 1.9% to 7,370, as fears of a global pullback coalesced into some broad-based selling here at home. Almost $50 billion of value was wiped off the local index in it's worst session in months. Every sector lower, the materials, banks and consumer stocks among the hardest hit. Of the laggards, Virgin Money UK (VUK) down 8.4% took the cake, while on the flip side, Resmed (RMD) gaining an unlikely 1.9%.Our top three VODs: Kyle Macintyre's three post-reporting season themes with the stocks to matchThursday, bloody Thursday and Luke goes fishingMarcus' cheesy call on Bega Hosted on Acast.

The S&P/ASX closed higher, Monday, gaining 22 points or 0.2% to 7,505

The S&P/ASX closed higher, Monday, gaining 22 points or 0.2% to 7,505. The materials sector carried a choppy index over the line, Fortescue Metals' (FMG) up 6.7%, more than doubling last years' profit. And that monstrous final dividen... we'll have to start calling Twiggy, Branchy, very soon. Other winners outside the materials sector, Invocare (IVC) and Polynovo (PNV) - both up around 8%. In the naughty corner, Altium (ALU) crashing 14%. Then there's Nuix, dropping a further 10.3%... possibly because of its befuddling reporting methods, or its failure to deliver on the pre-IPO big talk. Was it the ASIC raids? Or was it the complete lack of forward guidance, or hey, remember those two profit downgrades in four weeks at the end April...?
