What got you talking yesterday

The troubles of tech company Tikforce (ASX:TKF) were outlined on the Stockhead Facebook chat forum.

These were the five most-discussed stocks on trading gossip forum HotCopper at close on Monday:

Emerge Gaming (ASX:EM1) was still generating plenty of discussion thanks to its tie-up with iCandy (ASX:ICI), while Nuheara (ASX:NUH) revealed that the UK’s NHS has reclassified its IQBuds Boost as “niche technology” hearables.

They’ll no longer be considered hearing aids, a category Nuheara has been targeting for some time.

Yesterday’s losers

As much as $90 million was wiped from the market cap of OncoSil Medical (ASX:OSL) as it slumped by 87 per cent after getting some bad news from UK medical authorities.

The biotech aims to treat liver and pancreatic cancer by implanting a tiny device directly into tumours with a needle to irradiate them.

However, the British Standards Institute concluded that “insufficient clinical benefit has been demonstrated to recommend approval” for Oncosil’s treatment.
