Dealer’s Perception

·         The NSE All-Share Index inched up slightly by 5bps at the close of the day’s session.

·         The banking sector was a bit bearish today with more losses recorded than gains. GTBank continued to hold steady at N17.70 while First Bank, UBA and Zenith Bank dipped slightly, recording losses of 1.4%, 0.2% and 0.7% respectively. Demand for these stocks however remain strong and could prevent further losses tomorrow.

·         In the breweries sector, NB rallied with a 0.4% surge at the close of the day’s session, re-entries at current levels could lead to further gains in coming sessions. Guinness was however flat while International breweries lost 0.2%.

·         The conglomerates sector was upbeat today with no loss recorded in the sector; Unilever on the rebound bagged 2.9%. In the same vein, A.G. Leventis, Transcorp and PZ Cussons also picked up 4.8%, 4.0% and 2.8% respectively.
