Dealer’s Perception

·         The NSE All share index gained 129 bps today.

·         Activities in the banking sector were skewed to the buy side with most companies in the sector recording gains and UBN diverging with a 1.1% loss. UBA was the top gainer however the surge also spurred profit taking activities and could limit appreciation tomorrow. Diamond Bank, Sterling Bank and Fidelity Bank also booked over 7.0% at the close of the session.

·         The breweries sector was also on the up-tick; NB recovered from yesterday’s loss with a 1.6% mark-up closing demand would likely provide support in coming sessions. Guinness also recorded a slim 6 kobo mark-up while International Breweries recorded no change.

·         Transcorp consolidated on previous gains with a further 2.7% mark-up, A.G. Leventis and UACN also closed on the up-tick with gains of 4.9% and 0.9%. On the flip side Johnholt and Unilever lost 4.6% and 2.2%.
