In afternoon trade the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is back on form and on course to record a strong gain. At the time of writing the benchmark index is up a sizeable 1.6% to 6,047.6 points.

Four shares that are climbing more than most today are listed below. Here’s why they are storming higher:

The Brainchip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN) share price has surged 25% higher to 38.7 cents. Investors have been buying the artificial intelligence technology company’s shares after it announced a collaboration with VORAGO Technologies. This collaboration is intended to support a Phase 1 NASA program for a neuromorphic processor that meets spaceflight requirements.

The De Grey Mining Limited (ASX: DEG) share price has jumped 16% to $1.28. The catalyst for this was the announcement of yet another major gold discovery by the mineral exploration company. Management commented: “The discovery of the Falcon intrusion demonstrates the potential to significantly grow the gold endowment at Hemi as we expand our drilling footprint.”

The Nufarm Limited (ASX: NUF) share price is up over 3.5% to $4.06. This morning the agricultural chemicals company announced its expectations for FY 2020. After accounting for non-cash impairments of $215 million for its European business, the company expects to report earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) in the range of $290 million to $300 million in FY 2020. This appears to be better than the market was expecting from Nufarm.

The Pointsbet Holdings Ltd (ASX: PBH) share price has bounced back from a heavy decline and is up 4.5% to $13.79. This morning analysts at Ord Minnett downgraded the sports betting company’s shares from a buy rating to a hold rating. However, they lifted their price target by more than 100% to $13.60.
