In late morning trade the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is fighting hard to get into positive territory but has fallen short. At the time of writing the benchmark index is down 0.2% to 5,852 points.

Four shares that have not let that hold them back today are listed below. Here’s why they are pushing higher: 

The Dicker Data Ltd (ASX: DDR) share price is up 2.5% to $8.10. Today’s gain could be attributable to the wholesale distributor of computer software and hardware joining the S&P/ASX All Technology Index (ASX: XTX) this morning.

The Harvey Norman Holdings Limited (ASX: HVN) share price has climbed 2.5% to $4.46. This morning the retail giant released a trading update which revealed strong sales and profit growth so far in FY 2021. Harvey Norman’s comparable aggregated sales for the period 1 July 2020 to 17 September were up a massive 30.3% compared to the prior corresponding period. Things were even better for its earnings, with its unaudited profit before tax up 185.8% to $178.1 million during the first two months of FY 2021.

The Rhipe Ltd (ASX: RHP) share price is up 5% to $1.78 after announcing an acquisition. The cloud and technology solutions provider has entered into a binding agreement to acquire Parallo. It is a New Zealand-based IT services provider that specialises in infrastructure and cloud deployment technologies. Rhipe is acquiring Parallo for an initial fee of NZ$4.25 million. The acquisition is expected to be earnings accretive in FY 2021.

The Senex Energy Ltd (ASX: SXY) share price is up 6.5% to 32.5 cents.
