In general, the week that just went by was a terrible one for investment at the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) as the key market performance indicators depreciated in all the five trading days.
The market responded negatively to the cash crunch caused by the increase of the Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) by the CBN the week before from 22.5% to 27.5%. The development triggered sell pressure in the bourse, causing many shares to be dumped for sale by investors.
We have gleaned a list of stocks you should watch out for this week from companies that reported corporate actions last week.
