Stocks of interest at the close of trade on the ASX on Monday, November 19:

MPL - MEDIBANK - resurfaced from a trading halt down 17 cents, or 6.14 per cent at $2.60

Shares in Medibank, which was government-owned until its 2014 privatisation, were halted on Monday after the ADF told the insurer it would not extend its current arrangement with Medibank's Garrison Health Services past June next year.

BBN - BABY BUNTING - up 21.5 cents, or 10.83 per cent at $2.20

Baby Bunting shares have defied the gloom elsewhere in the retail sector, surging more than 12 per cent after the company lifted the bottom end of its earnings guidance.

The retailer has told shareholders that it expects earnings for the 2019 financial year to be between $25 million and $27 million, compared to the $24 million to $27 million detailed in August's full-year report.

MYR - MYER - down 4 cents, or 8.89 per cent at 41 cents
