 Dear Afrinvestor,

Market Last Week (Our Observations)

  • Last week, the equities market maintained its downtrend as the All-Share Index (ASI) depreciated 3.5% w/w to settle at 21,094.62 points. As a result, YTD return worsened to -21.4% while market capitalisation declined Ã¢â€šÂ¦399.8bn w/w to close at ₦11.0tn.
  • Sector performance was bearish as 5 of 6 indices under our coverage trended southward w/w. The Banking (-5.3%) and AFR-ICT (-4.2%) indices led laggards. Similarly, the Consumer Goods (-3.9%), Insurance (-1.2%) and Industrial Goods (-0.3%) indices lost w/w. Lastly, the Oil & Gas appreciated 2.3% w/w.
  • The top-performing stocks for the week were GLAXOSMITH (+24.7%), LIVESTOCK (+18.6%) and CADBURY (+12.9%) while NIGERIAN BREWERIES (-13.7%), ETI (-12.4%) and CUSTODIAN (-11.0%) were the laggards.


Market This Week (Our Expectations)

  • The Afrinvest Weekly Sentiment Indicator waned to 1.5x from the 4.7x recorded last week.
  • Following four weeks of consecutive losses, we expect to see some bargain hunting in early trades this week. However, we maintain a bearish outlook in the near term as investors continue to react to the global pandemic, although the proposed OPEC+ meeting scheduled for Thursday may tilt sentiment to the upside in the week ahead.
