Meanwhile, the Aussie markets definitely were not sizzling hot today, with the ASX Small Ords down 0.25 per cent to 2,910 points and the ASX 200 down 0.26 per cent to 6,816 points.

But you may remember the last Friday before Christmas last year was the bottom out of a four-month rut for equities. But this year, the ASX Small Ords and ASX 200 indices have gained 22 per cent and 24 per cent, respectively.

intelliHR (ASX:IHR) gained ground after locking in a capital raising at a hefty premium to its current share price. And Cogstate (ASX:CGS) told shareholders it made its best half year result ever recorded.
