- The ASX200 is riding Wall Street’s coattails today up 044%
- Nine out of eleven sectors were higher, with real estate leading the charge
- Technology was a close second with the help of a unicorn takeover bid
Wall Street rallied on Friday and the ASX was up 0.44%, riding on those bullish tailwinds.
Optimism is back, especially in the tech sector which was one of the pack leaders today up 1.13% and also helped along by a boost from aerial imagery player Nearmap (ASX:NEA) which got a whopping $1billy takeover boost from Thoma Bravo – but more on that later.
Nine out of eleven sectors were higher but real estate got gold on the podium, up 1.71%. Communications was second up 1.13%, while the materials sector wasn’t far behind, up 0.82% with the aid of lithium stocks.
Global oil prices fell by near 2% on Friday on expectations that supply disruptions in the US Gulf of Mexico would only be temporary – and the energy sector felt the weight today, down 0.79%.

“We have confidence that additional copper‐gold resources can be defined.”
And Nearmap (ASX:NEA) got a massive takeover bid by Thoma Bravo, a software investment firm, at $2.10 cash per share.
The company said the proposal implies a fully diluted equity valuation of approximately $1.05 billion for Nearmap, oh and and represents an 83% premium to the closing price of $1.15 on Tuesday 5 July 2022.
The board has determined the proposal to be credible and sufficient to initially grant non-exclusive due diligence access to Thoma Bravo.
