Fastbrick Share Price Builds Momentum

Fastbrick Robotics logo - asx market update

Fastbrick Robotics [ASX:FBR] has climbed more than 80% since the start of July. The amazing surge has seen the share price rise from 11 cents at the start of July to a high of 20 cents today.

What caused the July share price boom?

Fastbrick are known for their patented bricklaying robot. The machine bests its human counterpart at a rate of 5:1. Or, roughly 1,000 bricks an hour compared to the 200 a good bricklayer might provide.

As a result, on 3 July Fastbrick signed an agreement with Caterpillar Inc. [NYSE:CAT]. The US$64 billion machinery giant will help make and sell the bricklaying robots. A massive boon for Fastbrick.

The share price leapt up after the announcement, but has continued to climb more than a week later. While it is only a memorandum of understanding, meaning either party could pull out of the deal early, investors should be thrilled.
