Dealer’s Perception

·         The NSE All share index was up 14bps today.

·         Union Bank started the week with a further 4.8% appreciation, closing bullish sentiments could lead to further appreciation tomorrow. Diamond Bank, Skye Bank and Access Bank also closed on the up-tick. On the flip side, Zenith Bank, GTBank and UBA lost slim points with closely matched bids and offers, while First Bank closed flat.

·         FY numbers for Guinness announced during the session had little impact on its price today as it hovered around the N260.0 mark, in spite of offers at the upper end of the market. NB also recorded no change at the close of the session; However, International Breweries picked up full points on the back of robust demand and a hold back by sellers.

·         Bearish sentiments shaved off 4.9% from Cadbury, halting the nascent rebound. On the other hand, Dangote Flour, UTC, Nascon and Flour Mills all recorded gains ranging from 2.3% to 4.0%.
