5 best performing ASX BNPL shares of November

A quick note before we start: This list only contains shares with market capitalisations greater than $40 million.

Fatfish Group Ltd (ASX: FFG) – up 3.5%

For the second month in a row, the Fatfish share price has bested the performance of its peers to take out the crown.

While Fatfish might not ring any immediate bells for market watchers, the company owns and operates a retail BNPL offering, PaySlowSlow, in Malaysia.

The Fatfish share price surged 38% on 18 November as one of its major investments, iCandy Interactive Ltd (ASX: ICI), prepared to release exciting news.

Sadly, only a small percentage of those gains stuck.

The Fatfish share price ended October trading for 5.7 cents and finished November at 5.9 cents.

Latitude Group Holdings Ltd (ASX: LFS) – down 1.4%

The second-best ASX BNPL share is Latitude. It operates BNPL offering Latitudepay.

The company didn’t release any price-sensitive news to the market last month. However, its stock managed to dodge much of the carnage faced by other BNPL operators.

After ending October at $2.08, the Latitude share price finished off November at $2.05.

Afterpay Ltd (ASX: APT) – down 11.7%

BNPL favourite Afterpay has ended up with November’s bronze medal.

The big news from Afterpay last month was still its upcoming takeover by Square Inc (NYSE: SQ).

The company’s stock has generally moved alongside its soon-to-be parent company’s since the takeover was announced. Though, Afterpay faired considerably better than Square last month – the US-listed payment company’s shares tumbled 18% in November.

Afterpay’s last close of October saw its share price at $123.29. Sadly, at the end of its final session in November, it was going for $108.85.
