Good afternoon and welcome to the Marcus Today End of Day Report. My name is Henry Jennings and it is Tuesday the 24th of may and for the day we closed down 20.1 points or point two 8% 7,128.8 We had an open of 7,154.7 a high of 71 65.8. All was looking okay but a low of 7114. Those snap numbers from the US with social media companies tumbling infecting us futures prices took the wind out of our sails today but the banks were a solid performer today. Once again.
Henry Jennings 01:35
We saw the big bank basket up around point six of a percent to 185 own nine a and Zed was point two 4% better but CBA up point six and NAB still attracting a lot of fresh brains there they were up just over 1% Macquarie slid point six ASX down 1.3 And we did see the fund managers which had a good day yesterday coming off again Magellan down 3.4 And we had G Qg partners down nearly 2% insurers not doing much apart from IAG which was down at one and a half percent.
Henry Jennings 02:13
But it was industrials where we did see some red on the screen today. We had Tabcorp down at point 2%. Now before you will freak out tab caught when x the demerger of the lotteries group today. So tablet fell $4.28 and the lottery is caught TLC is the stock code was up $4.70. So if you add the two together, you've had a pretty good day as a tab Corp. Investor, now that you have tab and the lottery called 9.7 million shares trades a day in the lottery Corp, so I'd be interested to see how that one behaves. We also saw aristocrat down nearly 4% today, and James Hardy still under a lot of pressure on those US housing problems 4.9% down telcos also easier Telstra down 1.3 old platform stocks Rei group down 3.6 Seek down 4.2 and car sales, down three and a half. And we also saw brambles down at 1.1% today with some of the discretionary and consumer spending stocks Cole's down point six and Willie's down point seven.

But we did see damage once again in the tech sector that was on the back of those snap numbers. No doubt Computershare Down 1.90 Down 2.3 wisetech, down 3% And as hip to be square block down to 7.3%. So really taking the ball and running with it on the downside there for block. In healthcare. We
Henry Jennings 03:55
had CSL up a point 4% And in the mining stocks, BHP, Rio and Fortescue were all slightly better than today. Although bhp did give back those gains this afternoon and it closed down a mere three cents to 4780 but Rios up point nine of a percent Fortescue up point three lithium stocks not doing too badly base metal stocks not doing too badly ij IG o up 1.8 And we had our cam up 3.7 and Pilbara up 3.2% gold miners slipping slightly 1.6% down for new crest and Northern Star 1.8% down energy stocks doing zip really would say that point three and we did see a little bit of strength still coming through in those coal stocks, Whitehaven up around 1% And yet yancoal up around 2.4% today.
Henry Jennings 04:50
On the corporate news. We didn't have that Tabcorp TLC and D merger now in place. nufarm had a shocker today their 12 year old relationship with Sumitomo. Not that it's come to an end but Sumitomo sold 15.9% of the stock. Finishing that 12 year shareholding that they have and the stock was down 14.6% Today down below five bucks. So big, big full. The new farm steak I think was done at $5.38. So a lot of people underwater on that steak. We also saw Chalice, one that we wrote up and it's sprung to life recently. Today in a trading halt, they're raising $100 million for the Bonneville PFS. That's the preliminary feasibility study. And that will bring their total cash in the kitty $249 million. So plenty of money, and we'll see how that one's gone Macquarie and Belle pada doing the business there. Of course McCrory has been a big supporter of chalice and they've got their awards by having a placement no SP P and no entitlement for retail shareholders. So we'll see how that one goes.
Henry Jennings 06:05

Not much. Today on economic news retail sales in New Zealand fell half a percent in March quarter after an 8.3% increase in the last December quarter. And this is a biggie Australian dividend payments reached 97 point 9 billion in the last 12 months and one in every $2 came from mining in those dividends. Asian markets today we saw UBS and JP Morgan downgrade their forecasts for China's economic growth and Japan's inflation will stay above the central bank's 2% target level in the final three quarters of the year. According to survey the economist by Bloomberg and in US and European headlines not an awful lot out. As yet de vos continues European markets opening around 1.5 2.8% lower and of course the talk was of snap and its effect on other social media advertising companies and lugarde once again is reiterated the Eurozone to end negative rates within months. It's about that one.
