It’s going to be a short work week so remember to stock up on essentials BEFORE Friday hits. Like booze or coffee.

In the running for ‘worst decision of 2019’ is Switzerland’s plan to stop stockpiling emergency coffee, which they’ve been doing for decades.

They currently have enough to satisfy about three months of domestic consumption right now – which is a lot.

The ASX Small Ords could do with a couple of quick shots. It was down 9.1 points or 0.30 per cent to 2,796.9 at about 12pm AEST. After a small drop in late March the index has recovered in April.

After TinyBeans’ (ASX:TNY) announced a deal with toy behemoth Lego, investors were quick to bid the stock up 75 per cent to 70c in the opening minutes of Monday morning trading.

Gut disease fighter Immuron (ASX:IMC)  flew after announcing a 66 per cent bump in sales for quarter compared to the same period last year.

The company, which makes an over-the-counter gastrointestinal and digestive health supplement, was up over 30 per cent to 28c in morning trade.

Struggling data sharing company Shareroot (ASX:SRO) fell 50 per cent, with investors unimpressed by a new health-sector focussed business plan.

“At this point in time every dollar counts and we have to ensure we employ every cent toward generating revenue or generating value – no exceptions,” ShareRoot boss Michelle Gallaher says.

“We are under no illusions that it will take an enormous effort to deliver on the promise and achieve success for the company and our shareholders given recent challenges and changes in the business.”
