180 Markets: Movers and shakers

Greg Lowe

180 Markets

Certainly, one of the biggest market thematics is a return of inflation. We are seeing the spike in housing prices, wage growth, and commodity prices - not to mention the trillions of dollars of debt printed these past 12 months! Interest rates have moved up a quick 50 basis points and investors are taking notice. Over the past decade, investors have become so accustomed to lower (and lower) bond yields that any sharp move is greeted with swift market repercussions.

This trend is now flowing through to capital markets with the likes of this year’s potentially largest IPO, Commodity producer 29 Metals. The company is offering between A$525.6mn – A$609.1mn and attracting heavy interest due to its diverse portfolio including the base metal juggernaut, copper. In the precious metal department, gold exploration has become rampant as the commodity price is hovering around U.S.$1,900 per ounce. Companies such as Mt. Monger Resources as well as Pacgold Limited are conducting their smaller IPO and will use proceeds to explore their tenement packages in the Mt. Monger region of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, respectively. Despite their differences in market capitalisations, the common factor of these businesses is a hedge against further inflation.


CASTILLO COPPER (ASX: CCZ) is currently in a trading halt pending an announcement regarding a capital raise. STRAKER TRANSLATIONS (ASX: STG) is currently in a trading halt pending an announcement regarding a capital raise. Straker Translations is conducting a $20M by way of a fully underwritten Placement to institutional and professional investors as well as an accelerated non renounceable entitlement offer. New shares are to be issued at $1.90 per share. Ord Minnett and Bell Potter are joint lead managers to the transaction.

Estrella Resources has also secured full underwriting of its listed options ASX: ESRO which are exercisable at $0.05 on or before 27 June 2021.

Alligator Energy (ASX: AGE) hit an intraday high of $0.04 this morning, trading almost $1M of volume in the first hour of trade.
