Good morning, and welcome to Stockhead’s Top 10 at shortly-before-11-ish, to highlight the best (and sometimes worst) performing ASX stocks in morning trade using live data, to provide a short, sharp update to help frame the trading day by showing the biggest movers in percentage terms.

Which I promise I’ll get to in a minute, but before I can write anything, I need to pop outside and let the guys from my local council know that if they don’t take their leaf blowers and whipper-snippers somewhere far, far away, then one of them is going home with a leaf-blower lodged somewhere very private, and very painful.

Wretched bloody things they are… and the leaf-blowers are horrible as well.

Anyway – the market opens at 10am (eastern time) and the data is taken at 10:15am, once every ASX stock has started trading – for better or worse.
