In early afternoon trade the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is on form and pushing higher again. At the time of writing, the benchmark index is up 0.3% to 6,799.7 points.
Four ASX shares that are climbing more than most today are listed below. Here’s why they are storming higher:
Brickworks Limited (ASX: BKW)
The Brickworks share price has climbed 4% to $19.67. Investors have been buying the building products company’s shares following the release of its half year results. Although its underlying earnings were down 10% on the prior corresponding period to $90 million, management spoke positively about its outlook. This appears to be an indication that the worst is now behind Brickworks.
McPherson’s Ltd (ASX: MCP)
The McPherson’s share price has jumped 13% to $1.38. This follows news that McPherson’s has received a takeover approach from Gallin Pty Ltd at $1.34 cash per share. Gallin has been incorporated specifically for the purpose of acquiring an interest in McPherson’s. It is owned by Kin Group, which is controlled by the Geminder family. Kin Group attacked McPherson’s management for destroying shareholder wealth. The McPherson’s board responded by saying that the offer is “utterly opportunistic and profoundly undervalues” the company.
Medadvisor Ltd (ASX: MDR)
The MedAdvisor share price is up 3% to 33.5 cents. Investors have been buying the medication management company’s shares following the release of a positive announcement. MedAdvisor has revealed that a global pharmaceutical company has extended its health program deal for an estimated 3 months. This is expected to be worth US$4.7 million.
Premier Investments Limited (ASX: PMV)
The Premier Investments share price has stormed over 4% higher to $24.88. The catalyst for this was the release of a broker note out of Macquarie this morning. According to the note, the broker has retained its outperform rating and lifted its price target to $31.00. Macquarie was impressed with the retail conglomerate’s first half result.
