What got you talking yesterday

Leigh Creek Reserve’s (ASX:LCK) big gas reserve in South Australia was of interest on the Stockhead Facebook chat forum. These were the five most-discussed stocks on trading gossip forum HotCopper at close on Wednesday:

No surprises Leigh Creek was amongst them. Emerge Gaming (ASX:EM1) continues to be a popular stock after a wealth of news of late.

 

Yesterday’s winners

Leigh Creek was indeed one of the winners, with its shares rising yesterday 30 per cent to be 41c at the close of trade.

intelliHR Holdings (ASX:IHR) was shouting from the rooftops yesterday, releasing an announcement with a headline in all-caps about hitting a milestone of 50 clients. It said it now has nearly 7,000 paying users, with annual recurring revenue closing in on seven figures. Its shares rose in kind, up 25 per cent 15c.

Yesterday’s losers

The Data Exchange (ASX:DXN) came out of a nearly week-long trading halt to announce an entitlement issue, offering existing shareholders 8.5 new shares for every 10 they hold at 5c a pop.

That pushed shares down 18 per cent to 8c.

Moho Resources (ASX:MOH) fell 30 per cent to 10c after telling the market it had completed drilling at its Silver Swan North project.

It will now review the results, hoping there’s enough nickel sulphide mineralisation to warrant further drilling.
