On Stockhead today, we’ve won the war on inflation. Josh knows which ASX stocks won the war in commodities…

Bevis hates war, but loves gas. He knows who’ll win out of the gas majors and Albo’s new carbon scheme.

China always wins, but President Xi might not.

But first, the day ahead.



These are the stocks which were halted at the end of the last ASX session:

Kazia Therapeutics (ASX:KZA) – Halt called pending the release of an announcement about an anticipated financing transaction.
