Good morning, and welcome to Stockhead’s Top 10 at shortly-before-11-ish, which is meant 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 that have made announcements.

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 – and then I do my best to make sense of who’s moving where and why it might be happening.

Anyway… here’s what’s been happening since the doors were opened this morning…



Stocks highlighted in yellow have made market-moving announcements (click headings to sort).

Athena Resources (ASX:AHN) dropped an after hours announcement last night and a follow-up this morning, revealing that it had received correspondence from Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (OTC:XRXH) outlining the latter’s intention to make a proportional, off-market bid “to acquire 2 out of every 10 shares in Athena” – that’s a 20% stake to us normal folk – that it doesn’t already own, at $0.003 per share.

There’s a bunch of conditions on the proposal, including the appointment of two directors of XRXH’s choosing – once that’s been satisfied, XRXH will increase its offer to $0.006 per share, but that has to happen within the next two months.
