Who’s winning and losing on a Friday this week? We’re glad you asked.

But first – it’s been 28 years since Bogus Journey hit the cinemas, but time travelling slackers Bill and Ted are back, officially.

The boys are obviously looking a bit more ‘Keith Richards’ these days but still, very exciting.



Anyway, be excellent to each other, because the ASX Small Ords is up 3 points – or 0.12 per cent – to 2772.70.

Since its nice recovery from late December through to mid-February, the index has just bumbled along in place. Check this out:

Consolidated Zinc (ASX:CZL) is being sued by a pesky local rancher over a land use agreement for its Plomosas zinc mine in Mexico.

The rancher wanted the deal canned because Consolidated Zinc allegedly didn’t tell him that the agreement would be transferred from another company to Consolidated’s Mexican subsidiary.

Also, he says the explorer hadn’t paid the land use rental charges.

Investors punished the stock, sending the share price down 17 per cent.
