On Stockhead today, who’s going to solve WA’s gas problem, 10 stocks that went 20-bag after Covid, and Australia’s first all-local pot merger.

But first…

The week ahead

Key events locally will kick off with the RBA board minutes from in March meeting on Tuesday (11:30am AEDT). CBA economist Belinda Allen said markets will on the lookout for “further commentary on bond yields and the 3-year bond yield target”.

Later in the week, all eyes will be on the February employment report on Thursday. Westpac says jobs data should get another boost from the reopening of the NSW economy, which will see the unemployment rate drop again to 6.3 per cent.

And the main event of the week will on Wednesday night when the US Federal Reserve convenes for its policy meeting.

“Of particular interest to market participants will be if more FOMC members project a higher Fed Funds rate in 2023 than (they did) in December,” Allen said.
