Dealer’s Perception

·         The week started off on a slow note with the NSE All-Share Index picking up 4bps.

·         Union Bank and Diamond Bank were the top gainers in the banking sector, booking 5.0% and 3.7% apiece. FCMB also rallied with a 2.8% mark-up; GTBank however lost points towards the close of the session as it reverted to N17.10, booking a 0.5% gain after an initial surge had lifted the price to N17.21. Demand at the lower N17.00 level however remains strong and should provide support at this level tomorrow.

·         Demand for A.G. Leventis led to a 4.8% mark-up. PZ Cussons also had a good outing, booking a 1.0% gain; fairly matched offers and demand could however stall further appreciation tomorrow. On the flip side, Transcorp dropped 2.9% with closing sentiments skewed to the sell side; it could lose more points tomorrow.

·         The food and beverages sector went to the bears with more losses than gains; Nascon, Cadbury, Dangote Sugar and Flour Mill headed south with losses ranging from 0.5% to 2.0%.
