Explorer Greentech Metals (ASX:GRE) has a bunch of new drill hits to ponder – like 32m @ 2.43% copper – which increases the potential for a far bigger resource at the 3.6Mt ‘Whundo’ copper-zinc project in the Pilbara region of WA.

Global pharmaceutical giant Pfizer supercharged its original takeover offer for 100% of  little smartphone-based respiratory diagnostic maker  ResApp Health (ASX:RAP) by as much as $78m, with the proviso that RAP can reproduce the promise of its COVID-19 screening cough results.

And infant formula stock  Bubs Australia (ASX:BUB) announced a material upgrade to the company’s FY22 revenue and earnings expectations.

Following recent contract wins in the US, the company now expects FY22 gross revenue to exceed $100m, and to achieve at least 100% increase on 1H22 underlying EBITDA of $1.2m.

Humm (ASX:HUM)Booktopia (ASX:BKG) and Sezzle (ASX:SZL) all fell by about a full third this week. That last one’s going to feel pretty galling to Zip (ASX:Z1P), who’s paid about half a billion dollarbucks for that fizzler.
