The intra-day trend (chart below) shows the impact of low volumes, and as one trader said today, it’s great to see the ASX also celebrates Thanksgiving! Strength early, weakness late but a positive session to cap off a fairly flat week for stocks.

  • The ASX 200 finished up +11pts/ +0.17% to 7040
  • The Utilities (+1.55%), Energy (+1.27%) and Staples (+0.55%) were best on ground.
  • IT (-1.71%), Communications (-0.51%) and Consumer Discretionary (-0.47%) were weak.
  • Origin Energy Ltd (ASX: ORG) +2.76% moved higher as there remains a chance the takeover in some capacity will still eventuate.
  • WiseTech Global Ltd (ASX: WTC) -3.17% lost ground despite reaffirming earnings guidance, with Chair Andrew Harrison stepping down.
  • Virgin Money UK CDI (ASX: VUK) -6.08% fell after the UK-based lender missed expectations at their FY23 result, higher costs and provisions to blame.
  • Select Harvests Ltd (ASX: SHV) -10.53% a tough session for the almond grower on the back of a poor FY23, posting a loss of $114m.
  • Conditions in the almond market have been tough, facing wet weather and varroa mite problems weighing on output while prices remain subdued.
  • The market is now rightly concerned with the company’s $190m of debt on the balance sheet.
  • Whitehaven Coal Ltd (ASX: WHC) +3.41% is finding some support and looks good here.
