NSE delists Alumaco, Vono, 7Up, 19 others for non-compliance

The Nigerian bourse rallied marginally today after successive days of heavy losses running into trillions of Naira.

There has been massive trading in bank stocks in recent times, largely triggering the downturn in the market and, ironically, bellwether bank equities reasonably accounted for the resilience the market witnessed today.

A positive market breadth was recorded today as there were 17 losers compared to 15 gainers. The All Share Index (ASI) inched up by 0.17% to close at 22,733.35 basis points. Market Capitalisation fell to N11.847 trillion at the end of today’s trade. Year to date, the index is down by 15.30%.

TOP 5 GAINERS

In value terms, Okomu Oil led advancers, appreciating by 8.50% to close at N60. Flour Mills added up 8.08% to end today’s trade at N21.4. Zenith Bank went up by 9.68% to N11.9. GTB advanced to N19, notching up 4.97% in the process. UBA completed the top 5, climbing by 9.82% to close at N6.15.

TOP 5 LOSERS

Seplat was the worst performing stock today, declining by 10% to close at N544.5. Nigerian Breweries shed 5.72% to close at N28. International Breweries fell to N5.75, losing 9.45%. Cadbury dipped to N4.95, recording 10% depreciation. Access Bank closed at N5.4, going down by 7.69%.
