Investing.com - The ASX 200 lifted 36.5 points or 0.48% to 7624.7 on Friday, gaining for the third consecutive session and extending all-time high valuations gains as corporate earnings optimism offset a decline in mining stocks as iron ore prices tumbled.

On the coronavirus front, Victoria reported 15 fresh cases today with 7 among the community while infectious, while the ACT added 3 locally acquired cases after entering a weeklong lockdown yesterday. Queensland tallied 7 local transmissions, all of which were in quarantine for their infectious period. New South Wales added a record 390 cases amid an accelerating outbreak as exposure sites continue to balloon, with health authorities considering a state wide lockdown.

Among stocks, Rio Tinto Ltd (ASX:RIO) fell 1.1%, BHP Billiton Ltd (ASX:BHP) slipped 1.34%, and Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (ASX:FMG) dropped 0.98% as Iron ore prices slipped overnight, with futures falling to a four-month low amid regulatory pressure from China. Meantime, Baby Bunting Group Ltd (ASX:BBN) dropped 10.7% to $5.34 after reporting strong results but warned that sales had slipped in the new financial year.

In New Zealand, the NZX 50 added 88.2 points or 0.7% to 12770.01.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
