The local bourse closed in the positive region this week, as buying interests in DANGCEM (+6.5%), FIDSON (+18.1%) and JBERGER (+10.0%) buoyed overall performance. Consequently, the NSE All-Share Index appreciated 0.6% w/w to settle at 24,200.60 points despite losing on 4 of 5 trading sessions. As a result, YTD loss eased to -9.0% as market capitalisation rose ₦73.1bn w/w to close at ₦12.7tn. Activity level improved as average volume and value traded rose 19.5% and 83.6% to 242.8m units and ₦2.7bn respectively.

Performance across sectors was bearish as 4 of 6 indices under our coverage trended southward w/w. The Oil & Gas and Insurance indices led laggards, down 4.7% and 0.8% due to losses in SEPLAT (-10.0%) and  CORNERSTONE (-9.1%). Trailing, the Banking and Consumer Goods indices shed 0.6% and 0.4% respectively on account of price declines in STERLING (-8.0%), UNILEVER (-4.7%) and INTBREW (-10.5%).
