Investors’ wealth plummet further by N18 billion


The bears further strengthened their hold on the equities sector of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) yesterday, following selloffs on some prime stocks, as investors’ wealth declined further by N18billion.
Specifically, at the close of trading Thursday, the All Share Index (ASI) decreased by 35.42 absolute points or 0.14 per cent to close at 26,188.24 points. Similarly, the market capitalisation lost N18billion to close at N13.748 trillion.
The downturn was impacted by losses recorded in medium and large capitalised stocks, amongst which were; Unilever Nigeria, Stanbic IBTC Holdings, Cadbury Nigeria, Dangote Sugar Refinery, and Fidson Healthcare.

Analysts at Afrinvest Limited, said:“We believe the bearish momentum will be sustained in subsequent sessions as investors maintain a risk-off approach towards equities.”

Aiico Insurance rose 2.94 per cent to close at 70 kobo, while Guaranty Trust Bank gained 2.86 per cent to close at N27, per share.
On the other hand, Unilever Nigeria led the losers’ chart with 9.98 per cent to close at N21.65 per share. Fidson Healthcare followed with 9.97 per cent to close at N3.25, and Union Diagnostic & Clinical Services 8.33 to close at 22 kobo, per share. 
Honeywell Flour Mills lost 8.16 per cent to close at 90 kobo, while NPF Microfinance Bank shed 7.56 per cent to close at N1.10, per share.
However, the total volume traded increased by 212.72 per cent to 726.19 million shares worth N2.97billion, traded in 3,040 deals.
