On Stockhead today, Reuben’s High Voltage column undresses all the news driving ASX lithium, cobalt, graphite, nickel, rare earths, manganese, magnesium, and vanadium stocks and exposes them to you, our dear unsuspecting and largely innocent readers.

Today it’s shock-horror episode #461 of Elon Musk’s Tesla moving our markets on their own –  announcing an obscenely huge Gigafactory expansion in Nevada.

Stockhead’s ‘Garimpeiro’ columnist Barry FitzGerald is back in the studio for another instalment of The Explorers Podcast.

And, my goodness. It’s an action packed morning ahead of an action packed week of central bank shenannigans, featuring Josh Chiat and the King of Coal no More, Eddy Sunarto and the low down on ChatGP, and Nadine and The Badman. Bevis. Me and Peter. Gregor is always lurking nearby. Em and Jess are causing distress.

But first, the day ahead…

Tuesday’s big winner is  IntelliHR (ASX:IHR) up 70.6% after news the company has entered into a scheme implementation deed and is steaming towards being acquired holus bolus by Humanforce Holdings.

The IHR board has unanimously backed the scheme, most likely because it is underpinned by a massively generous offer that implies an equity value of $38.6 million, an attractive premium for IHR shareholders of:

  • 75% premium to the last trading price of IHR shares on 30 January 2023
  • 77% premium to the 1-month volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) of IHR shares
  • 80% premium to the 4-month VWAP of IHR shares


MoneyMe (ASX:MME), delivered expectation-beating statutory profits and record revenue for the quarter.

“Building from strong results in the first quarter, the momentum continued into the second quarter and has seen us upgrading our outlook on revenue and profit for the full year,” MoneyMe managing director Clayton Howes said.

“Our return to statutory profitability after a prolonged period of high growth is not only a result of a shift in near-term business strategy in response to the macro environment, it is also a continuation of our commitment to drive profitable growth and a testament to the quality and proficiency of our team,” he added.

MoneyMe was up 64.2% when the bell rang.
