ASX Lunch Small Cap Wrap: Who’s stirring up a swarm this morning?

Yesterday it was World Bee Day and Hollywood, keen to reclaim attention from the British Royals, chose to commemorate in a curious way.

National Geographic and Angelina Jolie teamed up by taking this photoshoot.

Angelina pulled it off by not showering for three days and being covered with pheromone, although she was also given nose and ear covers so bees wouldn’t fly in.

And she has been designated the “godmother” for Women for Bees as part of a UNESCO to support female beekeepers and entrepreneurs around the world.

It’s been a volatile week on the markets and it is continuing today.

After initially rallying up to 0.5 per cent in the first 10 minutes of trade, the ASX 200 sat 0.06 per cent down as at 12.30pm – at 7,015 points.
