September just keeps getting better and better for this tech solutions company.
The post This ASX 200 share has notched up 5 record highs this month appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
We’re only 8 days into the new month and one ASX 200 share has already beaten its own record high a whopping 5 times.
That’s particularly impressive considering the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has fallen 0.33% so far this month.
Additionally, the overachieving stock has seen its share price gain 17% since August’s end.
So, which ASX 200 share is behind such a remarkable performance? Let’s take a look.
Which ASX 200 share is setting records in September?
The TechnologyOne Ltd (ASX: TNE) share price has started September with a bang.
Last Wednesday it hit a record high, reaching $10.31 in intraday trade after announcing a new acquisition. It bested that figure on Friday when it reached $10.52.
This week, it surpassed its brand new record on Monday before besting Monday’s record on Tuesday.
Now, it has a brand new record high of $11.61, which it hit in intraday trade today.
The enterprise software-as-a-service company has called the ASX 200 home since 2014.
Last week TechnologyOne announced it has acquired the UK-based higher education timetabling and resources scheduling software provider Scientia.
TechnologyOne expects the acquisition will cost around $22 million (converted from pound sterling at the current exchange rate), with an initial payment of around $11 million.
TechnologyOne isn’t the only ASX 200 share hitting record highs today.
The Washington H. Soul Pattinson and Co. Ltd (ASX: SOL) share price broke its previous record high when it traded for $38.37 earlier today. While it’s been quiet today, Soul Patts did release a trading update on Monday, which might be spurring its gains.
Additionally, Aristocrat Leisure Limited‘s (ASX: ALL) stock surpassed its previous best today when it hit $47.91. As The Motley Fool reported yesterday, the ASX 200 gaming giant’s day in the green might be being spurred by its online gaming business, which has been relatively unaffected by COVID-19 lockdowns so far.
