IVZ reaches 10 bagger status, lithium day wrap and more...

With a bit of life creeping back into the market, we saw another of our long-term Positions achieve “10 bagger” status this week.

That company is our 2020 Energy Pick of The Year Invictus Energy (ASX: IVZ) which released another positive drilling update on Friday.
