Dealer’s Perception

·         The NSE All share index gained 37 bps today.

·         The week started off on a positive note in the banking sector, with mid-tier banks at the fore; Fidelity Bank booked a 4.0% mark-up on the back of growing demand. FCMB, UBN and Sterling Bank also picked up 2.8%, 2.7% and 2.3% apiece. Top-tier banks however recorded slimmer gains as buyers appeared cautious and unwilling to bid significantly above current levels.

·         The building materials sector was in line with current sentiments, though recording no change at the close of the session, Dangote Cement was skewed to the buy side. Ashaka Cement, Lafarge Wapco and CCNN however recorded gains of 0.1%, 2.8% and 4.9% respectively.

·         The food and beverages sector was split evenly between the gainers and losers today, while Dangote Flour, Nascon and Dangote Sugar headed south with losses of 0.9%, 1.0% and 1.4%.  Honeywell Flour, Cadbury and Flourmills closed on the up-tick with gains of 2.7%, 2.4% and 0.9% respectively.
