5 shares you need to watch on Monday

The S&P/ASX 200 (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) appears set to rise this morning following a positive session for international markets to close out last week. The futures market is pointing to a 30-point gain at the open.

Here’s a quick recap:

  • FTSE 100 (UK): up 0.65%
  • DAX (Germany): up 0.31%
  • CAC 40 (France): up 0.87%
  • Dow Jones (USA): up 0.85%
  • NASDAQ (USA): up 1.28%

The GetSwift Ltd (ASX: GSW) share price isn’t expected to re-open for trade today, with the shares currently suspended by the market operator pending the company’s response to a number of questions related to its ongoing disclosure.

However, if the company does answer those questions satisfactorily today, the shares could emerge from their suspension. Given the amount of publicity the suspension has received, investors will surely be watching on with interest as to how the share price responds.

The Mcgrath Ltd (ASX: MEA) share price could also receive further attention. The real estate agent business issued a profit warning last week which prompted analysts at Bell Potter to downgrade their guidance from ‘Buy’ to ‘Sell’ with a 45 cent per share price target. The shares closed the week at 49.5 cents.

Other companies that could receive some attention today include QBE Insurance Group Ltd (ASX: QBE), which enjoyed a strong week last week, and Domain Holdings Australia Ltd (ASX: DHG). The Domain share price rebounded somewhat after plummeting in price on Monday 22 January which came after the resignation of the group’s CEO.

Retail Food Group Limited (ASX: RFG) also slipped 2.4% on Thursday and could thus be worth keeping an eye on today.
