We’d love to get Iceland’s Eurovision BDSM celebration in here somewhere.

But when it comes to DGAF-level, letting-it-all-hang-out-here style, you can’t top old mate Jarrad Crickel showing Aussie PM Scott Morrison how to properly rock a king mullet the Bridgenorth Footy Club bar in northern Tasmania yesterday.

Crickel told assembled media he’s been dedicated to giving hairdressers the classic “short at the sides, long at the back” direction for seven years.

Moving on to other epic hair in history, it looks as if Trump is trying to calm everyone down — all on Twitter of course – but share markets still rebounded on Tuesday on this apparent easing of China-US trade tensions:

“When the time is right we will make a deal with China,” he tweets. “It will all happen, and much faster than people think!”

This morning, the ASX Small Ords Index followed suit, erasing yesterday’s losses with a 25-point gain in morning trade.

Here are the key ASX small cap winners at lunchtime on Wednesday May 15:

GOING UP

Has Crowd Media (ASX: CM8) turned things around?

The struggling global media and marketing company has secured some big marketing contracts with a number of international brands including PJ Masks (popular kids TV series), Expedia (leading travel website), N26 (leading European Fintech challenger bank) and Pasta Garofalo (Italy’s leading pasta brand).

This was enough to send the share price up 169 per cent to 4.5c in morning trade.

It was a good morning for health stocks. BTC Health (ASX:BTC) was in the green after raising $8 million — including $2 million from Sigma Healthcare (ASX:SIG) — to fund the acquisition of the Hospital Infusion Business from Admedus (ASX: AHZ).

And beleaguered Suda Pharmaceuticals (ASX:SUD) caught a rocket after securing a new chairman — biotech entrepreneur Paul Hopper. Hopper is well known for being the boss of Viralytics, which he sold for half a billion dollars last year.

GOING DOWN

Yesterday, battery metals explorer Greenpower (ASX:GPP) announced it was going to change tack and buy an old gold mine in Queensland.

Shareholders didn’t seem to like it, sending the stock down 33 per cent in morning trade.
