The Nigerian bourse started the month of November on a bearish note, as sell-offs pervaded the market last week. The NSEASI recorded a loss of 2.49% to settle the YtD return at -16.00%. Market breadth (0.32x) skewed in favour of the laggards, with seventeen (17) gainers, against fifty-three (53) losers in the week.
PRESCO led the gainers’ table, advancing by 12.92% to close at NGN59.85. Neimeth (+11.11%), Airservice (+10.00%), CI Leasing (+9.80%), and Livestock (+9.62%) also closed on the gainers’ chart.
Conversely, Unity Bank led the laggards last week, with a price decline of 21.11% to close at NGN0.71. The ticker was closely trailed by Dangote Flour (-21.09%), CCNN (-18.84%), Meyer (-17.65%), and Diamond Bank (-16.67%) in that order.
The market snapped a three-week gaining streak during the week due to the sell-offs across the counters. The spate of unimpressive earnings results during the week, especially in the consumer goods sectors, was a major factor for the downbeat mood in the market.
