3 ASX stocks that were thumped yesterday

The S&P / ASX 200 Index (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) managed to rise just 0.2% to close at 4,132.4 yesterday on media reports that Europe will release a road map to recovery and speculation of further stimulus from the US central bank.

Not exactly solid data to base your investing on. Any gains are likely to be short-lived, with fears likely to dash hopes and dump the markets on a day-to-day basis.

We’d rather focus on the long term anyway – these short-term blips will likely be forgotten in a week, compared to a multi-decade investment horizon.

Despite the market rise, these three stocks were thumped yesterday.

Integra Mining Ltd (ASX: IGR) was slammed down 7% to close at 40 cents, as investors may have realised that profits for this year may be affected due to mechanical problems at its Randalls gold project, near Kalgoorlie. Production has been halted for at least four days as the company tries to rectify issues with its processing plant.

Coalspur Mines Limited (ASX: CPL) fell 5.9% to close at 79.5 cents. Just two months ago, the stock was trading above $1.70. As I mentioned back in May 2012, Coalspur is developing a coal mine in Canada, which is expected to cost more than C$1bn, but the company has just $22m in cash in the bank at the end of March 2012, so shareholders can expect plenty more capital raisings to come.

Gryphon Minerals Limited (ASX: GRY) slipped 4.9% to close at 68.5 cents, just a day after rising 8.3%, as fear and optimism take turns influencing the market. Small ASX gold explorers and miners have seen massive volatility in their share prices in recent times, with Gryphon being no exception.

Other losers included Intrepid Mines Limited (ASX: IAU), down 4.7% to 50.5 cents, and Beadell Resources Ltd (ASX: BDR) down 4.4% to 64.5 cents.
