The S&P/ASX 300 Index (ASX: XKO) is flat today after ending its consecutive run of negative days this week.
During afternoon trade, the ASX 300 is sitting at 7,461 points.
Let’s take a look at which ASX companies made headlines on the ASX 300 chart today.
Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE)
The Treasury Wine share price is on the advance, lifting 4.96% to $13.12. This comes after the wine giant received a positive broker note from Morgans following its FY21 full-year results yesterday.
Its analysts raised the 12-month price target for Treasury Wine shares by 7.8% to $14.01. Based on the current share price, this implies an upside of roughly 6.7%.
HomeCo Daily Needs REIT (ASX: HDN)
The HomeCo Daily Needs REIT share price is also pushing ahead on Friday, up 4.41% to $1.54. The property company released its maiden FY21 full-year results, highlighting significant progress on asset management, development, and acquisitions.
Macquarie weighed in following the company’s performance, elevating its outlook by 2.5% to $1.64.
Lovisa Holdings Ltd (ASX: LOV)
Another significant mover today is the Lovisa share price, up 3.96% to $16.27. The jewellery retailer released a business update revealing disruptions to trading and temporary store closures.
It appears investors are disregarding the news as the company prepares to deliver its FY21 full-year results on 25 August.
And which ASX companies are heading the other way?
Yancoal Australia Ltd (ASX: YAL)
Deep in negative territory, the Yancoal share price is down a sizeable 9.35% to $2.23. Investors are heading for the hills following the company’s disappointing FY21 full-year result.
The coal producer flagged lower volume of coal sales, largely from wet weather disruptions. In addition, this had a knock-on effect as with higher operating cash costs came diesel prices and lower production affected unit costs.
Lynas Rare Earths Ltd (ASX: LYC)
Also being weighed down by investors today is the Lynas share price. With no market sensitive news from the company, it seems that investors are continuing their profit-taking before finishing off the week.
Lynas shares have accelerated in recent times, up around 36% from 20 July to 13 August.
