Stock Reviews and Rating Analysis 
Thundelarra (THX:AU), in the midst of a capital raising via a share purchase plan, illustrates the dilemma confronting companies needing capital to fulfil their long term development ambitions but having to confront the costs of doing so. The $17 million company could raise a potential $5.1 million at 5 cents but more likely a still handy $1.5-2 million, all going well.  After announcing the plan, the company’s share price fell 18% immediately to the 5 cents offer with existing shareholders knowing they could sell and buy back costlessly at a lower price.  An extension of the offer period by a fortnight is prolonging the weakness.  The infusion of new shares will then open the possibility of some shareholders wanting to disgorge a portion of their new purchases in which event investors could face more downward pressure in the weeks ahead.  Thundelarra has been selected for the PortfolioDirect Phase I portfolio to reflect the value beyond these pressures.
