On Stockhead today, can Sayona become a mini-PLS, Sydney house prices could fall 30%, and two good reasons why cheap stocks do exist.

But first, the day ahead.

Local shares are set to open higher today. At 8am AEST, the ASX 200 September futures contract is pointing up by 0.75%.

ANZ/Roy Morgan jointly issue the weekly consumer confidence survey. Minutes of the Sept 6 RBA meeting are also issued at 11:30am AEST.

At the meeting, the Board decided to lift the cash rate for an unprecedented 5th straight month, hiking rates by 50 basis points to a 7-and-a-half-year high of 2.35%.

“Since the meeting, RBA Governor Philip Lowe has delivered a speech titled ‘Inflation and the Monetary Policy Framework’,” CommSec says.

“In the speech Governor Lowe signalled that the recent run of jumbo rate hikes could be nearing an end.”

Fingers crossed.
