The ASX200 continued to slide today, shedding another half a per cent off the back of yesterday’s hotter than expected inflation data.

In the Green

Sports Entertainment Group (ASX:SEG) scored 15 per cent after announcing it’s received a $40 million offer from  MT Arena Capital Investment to buy the Perth basketball team, the Wildcats.

WA cybersecurity entrepreneur and long-time Wildcats fan Mark Arena is behind the offer, which is subject to a number of conditions, including NBL approval.

The news excited investors, with SEG up to 23 cents.

Clarity Pharmaceuticals (ASX:CU6), added more than 1.5 per cent after entering a supply agreement with SpectronRx for its diagnostic copper-64 radioisotope product.

Clarity closed trade at $4.67.

Sports technology company Catapult Group International (ASX:CAT) gained nearly 10 per cent on announcing its revenue reached $152 million for the year to March – that’s a 20 per cent improvement year-on-year.

BHP closed at $44.30.

Micro cap Carnaby Resources (ASX:CNB) is down more than 15 per cent on the results of a scoping study for their Greater Duchess copper and gold project in Mt Isa, Queenland.
