What got you talking yesterday

Thermal coal was on the tongues of members of the Stockhead Facebook chat forum.

Paringa (ASX:PNL) says it has sold all of its coal production for 2019 and has so far sold about 70 per cent for 2020 with “leading regional power utilities”, wrote resources editor Angie East.

“Time to jump on board the coal train,” wrote member Todd Thurkettle.

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


Yesterday’s winners

Payments provider Splitit (ASX:SPT) rose 25 per cent to close at $1.16 after boasting about record results in its first quarterly report as a publicly-listed company.

Splitit took about $457,000 in customer receipts for the March quarter, roughly two-fifths of its total revenue for the 2018 financial year.

Leading the pack in percentage terms this morning was Internet of Things minnow XPED (ASX:XPE), which jumped by 50 per cent to 0.2 cents.

Among the junior resources stocks, gold miner Lodestar Resources (ASX:LSR) was the standout performer (also on no news) jumping more than 40 per cent to 1 cent per share.
