The rankings, compiled based on the most visited equities pages on, also revealed the equities which received the largest increase in month-on-month interest from May to June 2020. Novonix, a previously little-known manufacturer of battery technology for electronic vehicles, placed first with a whopping 970% increase in page visits following rumours of a deal with US carmaker Tesla. receives almost half a million unique visitors in Australia each month and is among the top 200 most visited websites globally according to Alexa Internet, making it a uniquely accurate indicator of the equities retail investors are tracking. senior analyst Jesse Cohen said the results indicate Australian investors are keeping a close eye on companies particularly exposed to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“To see two companies outside the S&P/ASX 50 top our rankings of the most viewed equities is unusual, however not entirely surprising given the unprecedented economic climate we are now in,” Mr Cohen said.

 “The presence of Flight Centre, Qantas, Webjet and Air New Zealand in the two rankings indicates Australian investors are closely monitoring the heavily impacted travel and tourism sector for opportunities to get value, however the second wave of COVID in Victoria indicates it may be too soon yet. 

“The other clear trend is that buy-now pay-later companies remain the hottest commodity on the market – both established players such as Afterpay and Zip Co, and for investors looking to get in early on rising companies Splitit and OpenPay.

Companies following Novonix, Splitit and OpenPay on the rising stocks ranking included Bellevue Gold, which announced a maiden resource in June, and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and Pilbara Minerals, which were among the top 10 despite being removed from the S&P/ASX100 and 200 respectively in June.
