Advanced Human Imaging (ASX:AHI) has had its cracker run put on hold, screaming into a trading halt yesterday morning at 24 cents a share.

AHI says there’s a looming announcement vis a vis an acquisition after the ASX slapped a pricing query on its shares after they escalated quickly, more or less doubling on Monday.

Shares in the company were paused by the ASX Tuesday morning before they were halted in response to a pricing letter.

Up well over 40% is the TV production company Beyond International (ASX:BYI) which has had a cracker year off the back of growth in production fees and recoveries from joint venture productions, an increase in gross margins from the sale of previously written off programs (delivering 100% gross contribution) as well as an increase in copyright revenue.
