Niger Insurance

The company has been enmeshed in two different regulatory issues, which reflects a poor corporate governance and the management’s inability to comply with regulatory rules.

On one hand, the Insurance regulator, National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) revoked Niger Insurance’s operational certificate due to financial struggles, and on the other hand, the capital market authority, Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) suspended trading on the firm’s share.

Considering there have been no significant growth in the firm’s stock in the last six month, this regulatory issues further threatens shareholders investment in Niger Insurance, and blurs any possibility of growth when trading resumes on its share.

Honeywell Flour

Honeywell Flour ended on the loser’s list last week, amid report that the company was penalised by the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) for the management’s failure to submit its Q3 2021 financials before deadline.

Ripples Nigeria reported last week that the firm was fined N1.2 million. After trading that same week, investors dumped Honeywell Flour’s shares in the capital market, resulting to shareholders losing -8.91% of their investment.

Honeywell Flour’s share depreciated from N3.03 to N2.76kobo between Monday to Friday, reflecting declining investor confidence in the firm amid the regulatory sanction.

Okomu Oil

The management’s response in preventing further loss of company asset and personnel, seem to be paying off, as investors confidence rise towards Okomu Oil in the capital market.

This has led to increasing interest in the firm’s stock, causing the value of the share to appreciate by 12.09% last week, rising from N193 50kobo to N216.90kobo. This earned Okomu Oil a spot among the top five gainers.
