Presidential Result: NSE capitalisation loses N85bn in six hours
[color=var(--atc)]Presidential Result: NSE capitalisation loses N85bn in six hours[/color]

February 26, 2019


The market capitalisation of listed equities on Tuesday shed N85bn in six hours of trading to what traders attributed to profit-taking as a result of the presidential poll.
Specifically, the market capitalisation, which opened at N12.194trn, shed N85bn or 0.69 per cent to close at N12.109trn.
Also, the All-Share Index lost 226.30 points or 0.69 per cent to close at 32,473.82, compared with 32,700.12 recorded on Monday.

The Chief Operating Officer, InvestData Ltd., Mr. Ambrose Omordion, attributed the market pullback to profit-taking embarked upon by some “smart investors.”
Omordion said that the smart money that pushed the market up with expectations that the opposition would win the presidential election were leaving the market.
He said that some investors who entered the market in anticipation that the opposition’s economic policy and reforms would support market growth were taking profit ahead of earning season.

“This pullback may not last as a result of 2019 dividend declaration season, as dividend yield of financial service stocks are high and attractive due to low prices,” Omordion stated.
Nestle dominated the losers’ chart, dropping by N70 to close at N1,510 per share.
Union Bank of Nigeria trailed with a loss of 60k to close at N6.65, while FBN Holdings was down by 30k to close at N8 per share.

Conversely, Guinness led the gainers’ table during the day, gaining N2.05 to close at N67.15 per share.
Dangote Flour followed with a gain of N1 to close at N12.05, while Oando gained 65k to close at N7.25 per share.
Air Services added 60k to close at N7.05, while Africa Prudential increased by 44k to close at N4.84 per share.

A breakdown of the activity chart indicates that the volume of shares traded rose by 46.57 per cent with an exchange of 322.18 million shares worth N2.43 billion in 4,066 deals.

This was against 219.81 million shares valued at N5.55 billion transacted in 2,999 deals on Monday.
Sunu Assurances recorded the highest volume of activity, trading 50.81 million shares worth N10.16m.

Access Bank traded 32.30 million shares valued at N203.09m, while Diamond Bank sold 28.60 million shares worth N70.10 million.
