  Dealer’s Perception ·         The NSE All-Share Index lost 43bps.
 ·         Bearish sentiments held full sway in the banking sector today, with top-tier banks dropping points across board. Selling pressure also trimmed off 4.5% from Skye Bank, while Diamond Bank and FCMB lost 3.0% and 2.3% respectively, a trend that could continue tomorrow.
 ·         The breweries sector was in line with current trend, a downward review of prices by buyers led to a 1.8% drop for NB, robust demand at N108.00 could prevent a further slide tomorrow; Guinness was not spared as it shed 0.1% though light re-entries towards the close of the session could lead to a reversal tomorrow.
·         In other sectors, Transcorp consolidated on previous gains with a 4.9% mark-up, closing with unsatisfied demand at the highest price of the day. UACN and Presco also bagged over 4.0% apiece at the close of the session.
 Company Announcements ·         FY 2011 results released by John Holt Plc.
Smart Products proposed a final dividend of N0.15.
