Proactive Investors Friday, 7 June 2019
Afterpay Touch Group Ltd (ASX:APT) has had a bumpy ride this week hitting a low of $22.27 on Tuesday and a high of $25.20 yesterday (Thursday). On Wednesday, the company released a media statement via its website revealing it had reached 1.5 million customers and 3,300 retail partners in the US within the first year of launch. This news circulated and was likely responsible for the increase in the share price from around $23.20 to as high as $24.50 on Wednesday afternoon. Business update pre-market Thursday gets mixed response Pre-market Thursday morning, Afterpay released a business update via the ASX giving further details on the US growth, and general trading activity. Shares ran up 5.4% in the first minute of trade, however, but within twenty minutes, all gains had been wiped out and the stock was down on the day. It eventually bottomed out at $22.96 around midday on Wednesday before recovering some of the losses to finish at $23.45, down 1.9% on the day.  Market commentary suggested the reason for the sharp selloff was commentary on page 5 regarding anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism compliance.
