Morning Bell 20 May

Aussie equities yesterday popped to a 6-week high after gaining 1.8%, which saw the ASX200 settle 22% up from its March low. But today it looks like some of those profits will be trimmed as Aussie futures suggest a 1.5% fall at the open.

It comes as US shares fell into the red in the final hour of trade on the back of news reports that raised concerns about a potential COVID-19 vaccine from Moderna.

A trading idea for today, Bell Potter reiterated Avita Medical (ASX:AVH) as a speculative BUY, with a price target of $0.81, implying a 78% share price growth in a year from yesterday’s close of $0.455.

Investors will be watching BHP (ASX:BHP), Fortescue Metals group (ASX:FMG), Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO), Sydney Airport (ASX:SYD) & Australian Agricultural Co (ASX:AAC).
