Yes, it’s that time of year again – Halloween. But things will be a little different this year no matter where you are.

In Victoria, you can’t door knock so you’ll have to rely on people leaving treats outside their home.

Other states will allow it but have gathering limits and are encouraging COVID-safe measures.

But the people of Wuhan are way ahead of us. Earlier this week, a parade (pictured above) was held at the Happy Valley amusement park.

Similar to pool parties, it appears social distancing and avoiding crowds is a thing of the past for them.

ASX SMALL CAP WINNERS

E2 Metals (ASX:E2M) +230%

There’s little ASX investors like better than a new gold discovery. E2 did just that earlier this week at its Conserrat project in Argentina – intersecting an incredible 18m at 47g/t gold and 208g/t silver.

The company declared that this was a watershed moment for the company that confirmed the project’s potential. Investors evidently agree, having sent the stock tripling this week.

 

Xplore Wealth (ASX:XPL) +188%

The wealth management platform has never looked back since revealing HUB24 (ASX:HUB) would buy it for $60 million.

If the deal proceeds, Xplore shareholders will receive 20c in cash or its equivalent in Hub24 shares – three times what it traded the day before the deal was announced.

 

Funtastic (ASX:FUN) +85%

After years of struggling with cash flow problems, the toy wholesaler announced last week it was entering e-commerce in acquiring hobby outlet Hobby Warehouse Group (HWG) for $32.6 million.

The stock recommenced trading on Monday and shares have nearly doubled this week.
