On Stockhead today, the skinny on Sayona’s ‘breathtaking” US opportunity, 4D’s breath of life, and why better steel is the best steel.

But first…

The week ahead

Key data in Australia this week will be led by the release of the March jobs report on Thursday.

CBA economist Nicolas Guenson expects “another strong result” in March, with another 45,000 jobs to be added which will see the unemployment rate fall to 5.6 per cent.

Globally, the release of US inflation data will be in focus on Tuesday night.

Guesnon said headline inflation should rise off a low base, although “ongoing economic slack in the US economy will remain a drag on core inflation for some time”.

What got you talking last week?

Rivers of black gold, for the most part. Small cap oil plays topped the pops in March and Morningstar reckons oil is still the one sector where stock investors can find value.
