On Stockhead today, the ASX small caps that won November, Barclay Pearce’s stock ‘Buy’ this week, and the gold minnow swimming in the land of opportunity.

But first, the day ahead.

Today the November figures on new vehicle sales will be issued together with the Performance of Construction index from the AiGroup and the IHS purchasing managers’ index for the services sector.

And gold-copper exploration company Orange Minerals NL (ASX:OMX) will be making its ASX debut at 1.30PM AEDT.

YESTERDAY’S BIGGEST SMALL CAP WINNERS

(Stocks highlighted in yellow rose after making announcements during the trading day).

Jadar Resources (ASX:JDR) signed a non-binding deal to sell 100% of the lithium concentrate from the Pilbara lithium projects it controls to Yahua.

Still with lithium, Greenwing Resources (ASX:GW1) rose on initial exploration work on its San Jorge lithium brine project in Argentina, just two months after snapping up the project.

Just when it seemed Wesfarmers (ASX:WES) was set to acquire Australian Pharmaceuticals Industries (ASX:API), Woolworths (ASX:WOW) made a late bid which sent API shares up another 15%.

 

YESTERDAY’S BIGGEST SMALL CAP LOSERS

(Stocks highlighted in yellow fell after making announcements during the trading day).

Tymlez (ASX:TYM) dropped off the back of no news but enough for the ASX to issue a price query. The company’s only explanation was its new membership of the Australian Hydrogen Council, which it paid $5,000 for a 12-month term.

Liontown Resources (ASX:LTR) fell after completing its latest capital raising but is still at a very healthy premium to the 26 cents it traded at a year ago today.
