The S&P/ASX 300 Index (ASX: XKO) is advancing today, recovering from two consecutive days of losses after the earnings season wrap-up.

At the time of writing, the ASX 300 is up 0.5% to 7,528 points.

Let’s take a look at which ASX companies are making moves on the ASX 300 chart.

Paladin Energy Ltd (ASX: PDN)

It appears investors can’t get enough of Paladin shares, which are up 26% to a multi-year high of 80 cents. Paladin shares are now up 54% in the past week alone.

The uranium producer hasn’t released any news since its full-year results last Friday. However, in the report, Paladin noted that the Langer Heinrich Mine is progressing towards restarting production. In addition, the company is engaging with global nuclear energy utilities to secure long-term contracts.

It’s worth noting that the Paladin share price hasn’t reached this level since the middle of 2013.

Liontown Resources Limited (ASX: LTR)

The Liontown Resources share price is also pushing ahead on Friday, up 7.5% to $1 in early trade.

The emerging lithium producer released a presentation on its demerger with a subsidiary, Minerals 260. Liontown Resources will focus on developing its world-class Kathleen Valley Lithium Project, while Minerals 260 will concentrate on exploring the PGE-nickel-copper-gold system in the Julimar region.

Vulcan Energy Resources Ltd (ASX: VUL)

Another significant mover today is the Vulcan share price, up 7.2% to $14.40 just after noon on Friday.

The lithium developer provided the ASX with a corporate presentation today, highlighting its Zero Carbon Lithium strategy.

Vulcan recently entered into a 5-year strategic partnership and a binding lithium offtake term sheet with Renault Group.

Which ASX companies are heading the other way?

HomeCo Daily Needs REIT (ASX: HDN)

The HomeCo Daily Needs REIT share price is down 3.5% to $1.58. Investors are selling the property company’s shares despite no news being reported since its full-year results on 19 August.

A possible catalyst for the decline could be some profit-taking from investors. HomeCo Daily Needs REIT shares reached an all-time high of $1.65 yesterday.

Dicker Data Ltd (ASX: DDR)

Also being weighed down by investors today is the Dicker Data share price, down 2.7% to $13.69.

The IT distributors’ shares are taking a breather after accelerating 10% over the last two days. A number of directors recently bought more shares which led investors to jump on the bandwagon.
