The Nigerian bourse held three sessions last week due to the public holiday on Monday and Tuesday, declared to commemorate the Ramadan festival. Consequently, activities were limited even though daily volumes were significantly bigger than those of the week before.
We have selected a group of stocks you should watch out for this week on the basis of how the market fared last week and some other fundamental factors.
