In afternoon trade, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has fought back from earlier declines and is on course to record a small gain. At the time of writing, the benchmark index is up 0.1% to 7,340.3 points.

Four ASX shares have failed to follow the market higher today are listed below. Here’s why they are charging higher:

BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN)

The BrainChip share price is down 6.5% to $1.99. This appears to have been driven by profit taking after some very strong gains in recent weeks. For example, even after this decline, the BrainChip share price is up 150% in 2022. Investors may also be questioning whether a company with such little revenue warrants a valuation of over $3.5 billion.

Graincorp Ltd (ASX: GNC)

The Graincorp share price is down 2% to $7.67. This appears to have been driven by a broker note out of UBS this morning. According to the note, the broker has downgraded the grain exporter’s shares to a neutral rating with an $8.00 price target. UBS made the move on valuation grounds following a strong gain in recent months.

Redbubble Ltd (ASX: RBL)

The Redbubble share price has continued its slide and is down a further 4.5% to a 52-week low of $2.10. Investors have been selling the ecommerce company’s shares this week following the release of a disappointing half year trading update. That update revealed weaker sales and a collapse in its profitability due to increased competition.

Zip Co Limited (ASX: Z1P)

The Zip share price is down 1% to $3.62. This is despite the buy now pay later provider reporting strong growth during the second quarter. Zip posted a 53% increase in transaction volume to a record of $2.6 billion and a 58% lift in quarterly revenue to a record of $167.4 million. A key driver of this growth was a 57% increase in customer numbers to 9.9 million. It appears as though some investors were expecting even stronger growth.
