7 shares you need to watch on Monday

The S&P/ASX 200 (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) looks set to continue rising this morning with the futures market pointing to a 10-point increase at the opening bell.

Here’s a quick recap:

  • FTSE 100 (UK): up 0.19%
  • DAX (Germany): up 0.06%
  • CAC 40 (France): down 0.14%
  • Dow Jones (USA): up 0.44%
  • NASDAQ (USA): up 1.04%

The Bellamy’s Australia Ltd (ASX: BAL) share price will likely remain in a trading halt this morning after the company announced that Chinese authorities had suspended a licence for its new canning facility. The shares could re-open for trade early if the company releases an announcement today.

The gold sector will receive some attention after the gold price slipped 1% to US$1,213 an ounce. That could weigh on the Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX: NCM) share price and the Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN) share price.

Similarly, the Brent oil price slipped 2.9% which could impact the BHP Billiton Limited (ASX: BHP) share price. Although the iron ore price did regain 1.4% to US$62.80 a tonne, according to The Metal Bulletin, which could provide the BHP share price with some support.

The Ltd (ASX: RNT) share price soared 16% on Friday, suggesting that its shares could receive more attention today. The same can be said for Praemium Ltd (ASX: PPS), which rocketed 15.5% higher.

And Coca-Cola Amatil Ltd (ASX: CCL) could be in focus after shedding 6% last week.
