In morning trade, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is on course to record a disappointing decline. At the time of writing, the benchmark index is down 1% to 7,435.8 points.

Four ASX shares that are not letting that hold them back are listed below. Here’s why they are charging higher:

Novonix Ltd (ASX: NVX)

The Novonix share price has continued its meteoric rise and is up a further 7.5% to $5.83. Investors have been scrambling to buy the battery materials company’s shares this week after it was added to the ASX 300 index at the next quarterly rebalance on 20 September. In addition to this, Novonix continues to benefit from bullish investor sentiment in the battery materials sector.


The ResMed share price is up 3% to $40.78. This is despite there being no news out of the sleep treatment focused medical device company. However, the company’s shares have just been added to the illustrious ASX 50 index at the next rebalance. This could mean that ASX 50 index tracking funds and some fund mangers with particular investment mandates have been buying its shares.

Senex Energy Ltd (ASX: SXY)

The Senex share price has risen 3% to $3.31. This morning the energy company announced a gas sales agreement with Australian resources company New Century Resources Limited (ASX: NCZ). According to the release, Senex will be selling New Century 7 petajoules of natural gas over three years.

Weebit Nano Ltd (ASX: WBT)

The Weebit Nano share price is surging 39% higher to $3.92. This morning the memory technology company confirmed that it has entered into its first commercial deal. According to the release, the deal is with a subsidiary of Nasdaq-listed semiconductor foundry SkyWater Technology. It is a US Department of Defense accredited pure play technology foundry, specialising in advanced innovation engineering services and volume manufacturing.
