We saw another uneventful day for the AIM index on Wednesday, with the market putting in a rangebound performance but managing to creep into positive territory by the close, finishing just over three points higher at 959.73.

  • Orosur Mining up 88%
  • I-Nexus Global up 30%
  • Katoro Gold down 29%
  • Ide Group Holdings down 26%
  • ValiRx up 17%

Orosur [LON:OMI] charged significantly higher during the session following an update on its Colombia project. The arrival of a second joint venture partner has paved the way for exploration and the company adds that it now has two of the world’s top 10 gold miners invested in the project.


I-Nexus Global [LON:INX] also moved higher today although the company is something of a minnow with a market cap of just £2m and trading on a 10% spread. There’s little to justify the move in terms of fundamentals however.

Katoro Gold [LON:KAT] was the biggest loser, slumping 29% off the back of a funding update. Whilst there was a positive spin to this, investors appeared to be expecting more and the note of caution over ongoing delays owing to COVID-19 will do little to bolster confidence either.

Ide Group [LON:IDE], the IT services provider, was another big faller on Wednesday losing 26% after half year results were published. Revenues were down from £14.7m to £12.4m but with the company having reduced headcount in the wake of COVID, this has the potential to hit attempts to rebuild income in the short term.

A notable mention for ValiRx [LON:VAL], which managed to notch up some gains during the session after a bruising start to the week. Given the trials update at the start of the week, the heavy selling always risked being overdone. The day’s 17% recovery leaves the stock at 32p.
