On Stockhead today, the juniors preparing to ride the lithium wave, four small caps bursting the break-even barrier and Apple and Tesla share splits could handsomely reward investors.

But first…

 

The week ahead

Local markets will digest a busy calendar of data this week to kick off the new month.

The headline event will be the RBA’s monthly policy meeting on Tuesday, where analysts will be watching closely for any changes to the bank’s outlook in the wake of the US Fed’s big announcement on Thursday night.

Elsewhere, preliminary data will start flowing through on Monday and Tuesday before the release of Q2 GDP figures on Wednesday (the data will show a “historic fall” Westpac says, but markets already know that).

There’s also monthly house price data from CoreLogic on the schedule this morning, trade balance figures on Thursday and July retail sales data on Friday.

Looking abroad, monthly US employment figures for August will headline the international data calendar on Friday night.

The following companies are in trading halts and are expected in the next two trading days:

Monday:

RBR Group (ASX:RBR) – Mozambique program update
Huon Aquaculture (ASX:HUO) – capital raising
PS&C (ASX:PSZ) – asset sale
Great Northern Minerals (ASX:GNM) – capital raising
Emerald Clinics (ASX:EMD) – capital raising
Thomson Resources (ASX:TMZ) – capital raising

Tuesday:
Peako (ASX:PKO) – capital raising
Intiger Group (ASX:IAM) – price query
Golden Mile Resources (ASX:G88) – capital raising
Orocobre (ASX:ORE) – capital raising
Cannindah Resources (ASX:CAE) – acquisition
