Welcome to the 210th edition of the Deloitte WA Index, a monthly review of Western Australian stocks and indices.
The aggregate market capitalisation of Western Australian listed companies continued to increase over the month of August – up 5.4% - to close at $314.0 billion. The increase was impressive considering the weakness in global markets. A primary contributor was positive market sentiment surrounding lithium, with WA lithium companies also well represented in the top company movers this month.
The Index outperformed global markets which had mixed results in August. The Nikkei and Australian All Ordinaries were up 1.0% and 0.7% respectively, while other markets were weaker, with the S&P 500 and FTSE 100 down 4.2% and 1.9% respectively amidst further inflation fears.
