Why Bigtincan, Iluka, Redbubble, & St Barbara are pushing higher today

The S&P/ASX 200 index is on course to finish the day lower for second day in a row. In afternoon trade the benchmark index is down 0.7% to 6,642.5 points.

Four shares that have not let that hold them back today are listed below. Here’s why they are pushing higher:

The Bigtincan Holdings Ltd (ASX: BTH) share price has jumped 9.5% to 65.2 cents. This morning the AI-powered sales enablement automation platform provider released its first quarter update. Bigtincan reported customer cash receipts of $5.3 million, up 56% on the prior corresponding period. The company also revealed that it has signed a reseller agreement with NTT DOCOMO. This agreement will see NTT DOCOMO sell Bigtincan SaaS solutions to its enterprise customers in Japan.

The Iluka Resources Limited (ASX: ILU) share price has raced 5% higher to $9.26. Investors have been buying the mineral sands producer’s shares following the release of its quarterly update. This morning Iluka revealed a solid increase in production during the September quarter. It also announced a review of its business that could potentially mean the divestment of its Mining Area C royalty business. 

The Redbubble Ltd (ASX: RBL) share price has stormed almost 5% higher to $1.94 after Goldman Sachs responded positively to the ecommerce company’s recent update. According to the note, the broker has increased its forecasts for the medium term due to higher gross margins and lower paid acquisition expenses. This has led to Goldman lifting its price target on Redbubble’s shares by 24% to $2.05.

The St Barbara Ltd (ASX: SBM) share price has pushed 3.5% higher to $2.81. Investors have been buying the gold miners today after the price of the precious metal climbed higher overnight. The catalyst for this was the U.S. Federal Reserve cutting rates by 25 basis points. The S&P/ASX All Ords Gold index is up 0.65% at the time of writing.
