Here are the key ASX small cap winners and losers at lunch Fri Oct 19:

The ASX Small Ords index was down 0.4 per cent or 12 points to 2703 by 12.40pm AEST.

GOING UP

Parkinson’s researcher Living Cell Tech (ASX:LCT) almost doubled in price today — with no news in the market.

By midday some $2.5 million worth of shares had changed hands, pushing the stock up 88 per cent to an intraday high of 8.3c. It cooled to 5.5c by midday.

Living Cell is monitoring Parkinson’s patients in a Phase IIb clinical trial of its NTCELL technology to figure out if the treatment should advance to commercialisation.

Business IT provider Tomizone (ASX:TOM) jumped 40 per cent to 1.4c today after a positive market update.

Following a seasonal sales dip “September saw a rebound and an increase in both sales and inbound leads”, the group told investors.

“In addition October has continued the September trend with stronger sales again. This pattern should see continued strength in sales for the current quarter.”

Tomizone also re-signed its two biggest wi-fi customers — described as a major Australian bank and a major New Zealand supermarket chain.

Vanadium and oil shale play QEM (ASX:QEM) made a steady ASX debut Friday morning — trading around its 20c issue price.

In the first half-hour of trade, the stock (ASX:QEM) advanced as much as 5 per cent to trade at 21c before returning level with its IPO price.

About 600,000 shares worth $126,120 changed hands in 19 trades during that time.

QEM closed its $5 million IPO over-subscribed in September.

European Cobalt shares (ASX:EUC) jumped Friday morning after the explorer returned high-grade cobalt and nickel from shallow underground drilling at its flagship “Dobsina” project in Slovakia.

The stock was up 13 per cent to 5.3c in morning trade before falling back to 4.9c at lunch.

European Cobalt shares have been hit hard this year — alongside many of its cobalt peers — falling from highs of 28.5c.

Shallow portable drilling at the historic Joremeny Adit underground mine at Dobsina returned high grades of up to 4.9 per cent cobalt and 5.04  per cent nickel.

In general, less than 1 per cent cobalt is low grade and over 2 per cent is high grade.

GOING DOWN

eSense Labs (ASX:ESE) dropped back on Friday after almost tripling to 10c earlier in the week — and earning an ASX query.

The stock dropped 29 per cent to 7.1c by 1pm AEST.

On Thursday eSense told investors the UK pilot deal for its lemon terpene liquid had made $US18,000 since March.

The ASX questioned when it started selling to the anonymous company after its share price surged 75 per cent.
