Zoono (ASX:ZNO) is more than a 20 bagger with investors demanding the stock in much the same fashion customers are scrambling for the hand sanitiser maker’s products.

This week Regal Funds Management came to the table, buying over $20m in stock, which equates to just over 9 per cent of the company. Regal also became substantial holders of buy now, pay later stock Zip Co (ASX:Z1P) and Imcor Medical Systems (ASX:IMR).

Perennial Value Management made several buys including into recently listed aerial mapping firm Aerometrex (ASX:AMX) and fintech MoneyMe (ASX:MME).

Paradice Investment Management increased its holdings in almond seller Select Harvests (ASX:SHV) and Capitol Health (ASX:CAJ).

Retailers were also popular this week with Perpetual buying more of Mosaic Brands (ASX:MOZ), Pendal Group buying into Adairs (ASX:ADH) and QVG Capital buying into City Chic Collective (ASX:CCX).

Among individual investors, Stephen Copulos bought more of Consolidated Zinc (ASX:CZL) and now owns nearly 32 per cent of the company.

Regal’s $22m worth of Zoono shares came from none other than the company’s CEO, Paul Hyslop.

But Hyslop still owns 41 per cent of the company and apparently fund managers like Regal were desperate to buy in. The sale paid back a loan Hyslop had made to Zoono.
