Here are the key ASX small cap winners and losers at lunch Monday August 27:

The ASX Small Ords was down 5.4 points or 0.2 per cent at 2,891.20 at 1pm AEST.

GOING UP

Investors in Simavita (ASX:SVA) are beaming this morning, as shares in the diaper maker rocketed an eye-bulging 211 per cent.

The stock hit an intraday high of 5.6c after Simavita announced it had signed its first major marketing agreement targeting the sale of baby and adult diapers incorporating the company’s AlertPLUS sensor.

Earlier this year it was rattling the tin to raise funds to close licensing agreements.

Shareholders in Moreton Resources (ASX:MRV) responded positively to the company’s decision this morning to undertake a strategic review of its assets and subsidiaries.

The silver miner, which last year re-opened a mine in south-east Queensland that was closed for three years due to contamination concerns, told investors they wanted to determine core and non-core assets.

Moreton says the review was due to approaches regarding its “asset base and potential transactions”, the coal market and the advancement of its Granite Belt project.

The shares were up 44 per cent at 1.3c by lunch.

Paragon Care (ASX:PGC) shares jumped 11 per cent to an intraday high of 86c this morning, following news it had secured a $45 million investment from a Chinese healthcare company.

China Pioneer is a $415 million Hong-Kong-listed healthcare group, and they will now hold 15 per cent of the company.

Paragon also reported positive full-year results, with revenues and profit both up slightly.

Businessman Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest’s investment firm Squadron Resources tipped some extra money into nickel miner Poseidon (ASX:POS), which sent shares in Poseidon up 6.3 per cent to an intraday high of 5c.

It takes Squadron’s holding to about 18 per cent, from over 12 per cent previously, by participating in the $5.8 million placement. If no shareholders take up their entitlements, Squadron’s ownership of Poseidon will increase to 59.3 per cent.
