Australia is shook after last night’s Bachelorette semi final, during which Angie sent Ryan home, leaving Carlin and Timm to battle it out for her affections.

But Angie did not find it easy, leaving the set during the rose ceremony as she agonised over her decision.

Investors in Australian markets would have been smiling over the decisions today, with the ASX 200 up 0.24 per cent to 6,714 points and the ASX small ords up 0.29 per cent to 2,910 points.

 

Going up

One almost failsafe way to get your share price moving is to have a big name in your announcement, as Beam Communications (ASX:BCC) proved today.

Beam said this morning that Telstra had approved its MG400 gateway device product, paving the way for much wider adoption as the telco moves to phase out its 3G network by 2024.

Two of the biggest movers — Allegra Orthopaedics (ASX:AMT) and HeraMED (ASX:HMD) — both shot up before lunch on no news, though HeraMED put a pause on its trading, so it appears set to release something.

Going down

The biggest faller by lunch was European Cobalt (ASX:EUC), down 27 per cent to 2c. The miner announced it was acquiring in full Queensland company Maroon Gold.

“Maroon Gold has established a high-quality portfolio of near-term development assets combined with the requisite processing infrastructure to capitalise on the strong gold price environment,” managing director Glenn Baldwin said.
