The Nigerian Stock Exchange Trading Report
The NSE 30 (Nigerian Stock Exchange 30) is the price index that tracks the Top 30 companies in the NSE in terms of market capitalization and liquidity.
The companies are reviewed based on their closing balances at the end of the trading session on Wednesday, December 18, 2019.
The investors gained N2.6 billion as Market Capitalization increased to N12.9 trillion.
The benchmark index (All Share Index) appreciated 2 bps to close at 26,665.73 points.
The year-to-date return loss settled to -15.2%.
The Top 3 Trades (by volume) were:
1. Access Bank: 64.2 million.
2. Zenith Bank: 31.0 million.
3. GTBank: 26.6 million.
The Top 3 Trades (by value) were:
1. GTBANK: N786.0 million.
2. Access Bank: N636.0 million.
3. Zenith Bank: N577.4 million.
Investor sentiment as measured by the market breadth (advance/decline ratio) plunged to 0.9x from 1.4x recorded yesterday, as 17 stocks advanced against 18 that declined.
We do expect the bullish performance to be sustained, as investors come back to take advantage of fundamentally sound low-cost stocks.
I advise my friends and allies to position themselves in stocks with good fundamentals and good dividend history, as we expect cheap stocks to move up to their intrinsic value in the last month of the year.
