On Stockhead today, Warren Buffet’s recent investment moves signal a changing view on inflation, how NextDC went from start-up to $5.5bn stock in 10 years and ASX tech players beat their US counterparts during COVID-19.

But first…

 

The day ahead

On the local data calendar, there’s retail sales data for July at 11:30am AEST, where Westpac says the preliminary showed “a solid gain, but August is looking soft”.
