London’s AIM Index has spent the whole session in negative territory, although losses have been limited with the junior market closing down just under three points at 1189.54
- MyHealthChecked up 26%
- Cambria Africa up 21%
- Catenae Innovation up 11%
- Hurricane Energy down 14%
- Aura Energy down 14%
MyHealthChecked [LON:MHC] found its way to the top of the board again today, adding 26% by the close. There’s still no confirmation from the business of any new contracts being signed, but the prospect of that continues to fuel support. Note however the stock trades on a wide spread and failure to see an update may result in a fairly quick reversion.
Small cap Cambria Africa [LON:CMB] added another 21% during Tuesday’s session, extending that theme of gains we’ve seen emerging over the last week or so. There were some reasons to cheer last Friday’s trading update, although the extension to filing the annual report may have unsettled some. With a 15% spread this remains a thinly traded and speculative play but clearly it’s attracting some interest.
Aura Energy [LON:AURA] found itself at the foot of the table, extending recent losses and slipping a further 14%. The stock has been on something of a rollercoaster of late, adding 50% in the latter part of February but with a wide spread, limited newsflow and light volumes, it’s difficult to draw many conclusions.
Hurricane Energy [LON:HUR] was another big faller, retreating almost 14% on Tuesday. An update this morning received a rather unenthusiastic reaction from investors, leaving shares sliding lower as a result, If it’s any consolation, the stock remains comfortably above levels seen at the end of last year but direction here does seem to be lacking.
A notable mention for Catenae Innovations [LON:CTEA] who added 11% on Tuesday. The stock made it onto our radar a couple of times last week, sliding after speculation that they wouldn’t be playing a role in any COVID vaccination app, but there’s still enthusiasm across the whole sector here. Big announcements will continue to be made by government and those who are awarded the contracts stand to receive a significant boost.
