All five companies that finished on the winner’s list after making announcements today were resources stocks.

Also rising strongly was tungsten company King Island Scheelite (ASX:KIS), which rose sharply after announcing that Swiss investment fund D.A.CH.S Capital announced it had increased its stake to 6.8 per cent.
