YESTERDAY’S BIGGEST SMALL CAP WINNERS

(Stocks highlighted in yellow rose after making announcements during the trading day).

Cettire (ASX:CTT) is busting into China after revealing it’s in bed with e-commerce daddy JD.com. With the Middle Kingdom’s middle class driving demand for a spike in personal luxury goods the market is set to be worth some $150bn by 2025, and if my math serves me – that’s about 25% of the $600bn global pie. Cettire is up about 22%.

Among stocks with news, game development company PlaySide Studios (ASX:PLY) led the pack, following a market update on what the company called its first Web 3.0 project.

Through its Dumb Ways to Die gaming franchise (acquired in September last year), PLY announced the early results at its BEANS NFT launch last Friday, saying it had booked “$8.38m in net revenue after all third-party fees”.

PLY climbed 29% yesterday, but copped some bad news later in the day when its minting process “hit a snag”.

Leading the resources pack was market minnow Carbon Minerals (ASX:CRM), which operates a coal seam gas project in the Gunnedah Basin, NSW.

Shares in the ~$5m market cap company, which usually trades on low volumes, jumped by around 34% on no news.
