The solo traders

The biggest solo trade came from Ian Gandel, who continues buying more of gold junior Alliance Resources (ASX:AGS). He acquired another $1.46m in shares as part of a rights issue.

Last year he made a bid to acquire the whole company which resulted in him gaining a hefty stake in the company, but not quite 100 per cent.

Another notable resources identity, Timothy Goyder, took another leap of faith in lithium play Liontown Resources (ASX:LTR), purchasing $300,000 worth of shares.

Consumer stocks saw notable buyers too. Victorian business identity James Baillieu made another vote of confidence in sweet distributor Candy Club (ASX:CLB), buying just over $125,000.

Monash IVF’s (ASX:MVF) Richard Henshaw bought $174,469 of the IVF provider’s shares while AssetOwl’s (ASX:AO1) Simon Trevisan bought $120,900. Both buys were part of a rights issue.

Grant Murdoch, of forex service provider OFX (ASX:OFX), bought $135,033 on market.

Among the solo sellers, the biggest was G Medical Innovations (ASX:GMV) chief Yacov Geva, who parted with $3.3m worth of shares.

G Medical told shareholders the sale was to an institutional investor and done to repay a third party loan which he secured to advance funds to the company.

Avita Medical (ASX:AVH) boss Michael Perry sold $2.3m to pay a tax bill. However, thanks to the vesting of restricted stock units (having served the company for three years), he finished last week with more shares than what he began with.
