The REA Group Limited (ASX: REA) share price rose by 2.04% today after the company announced it grew its core operating profit by 21%.

Another result announced today was from Capilano Honey Ltd (ASX: CZZ), it didn’t give investors a buzz as the share price dropped 2.31% in afternoon trading.

Video company Big Un Ltd’s (ASX: BIG) share price has been smashed by 42% today after the market learned of its odd relationship with FC Capital.

The Carsales.Com Ltd (ASX: CAR) share price rose by just over 2% as investors had time to analyse the company’s report from earlier in the week.

Myer Holdings Ltd (ASX: MYR) was the worst performer in the ASX200 after revealing a fairly disappointing guidance update today, the share price plummeted 9.3% in response.

Oil company Beach Energy Ltd (ASX: BPT) dropped 5.47% today with the oil price falling over the past week.

Finally, WiseTech Global Ltd (ASX: WTC) succumbed to the global volatility again as its share price fell by 7.09%.
