Three-year brawl, market regulator denial, others put Oando, Cutix, Airtel and Total on stocks-to-watch

Oando, Cutix, Airtel Nigeria and Total Nigeria made the stocks-to-watch list this week.

Kindly note that Ripples Nigeria Stocks Watchlist is not a buy, sell or hold recommendation. It is advisable to consult your financial advisor before making any investment decision.

Oando

The company ended its three years battle with the Nigerian bourse regulator, Securities and Exchange Commission. The decision was made to reduce the impact of litigation on shareholders’ investment.

This is expected to boost onvestors’ confidence in the capital market, although Oando was ordered to pay undisclosed amount – this will dwindle their liquidity, but the impact will be for a short-term.

Cutix

Cutix was reported as the best performing stock of last week, according to the Nigerian Exchange Group. The company had gained 32.51 percent in its stock value.

Shareholders watched as Cutix share price appreciates from its week opening of N3.63kobo per share, to close the week with N4.81kobo.

While this reflects an addition of N1.18kobo gain, it is enough to boost the confidence going into the new capital market week.

Airtel Nigeria

The network provider has still not gotten its operating license renewed, and it is expected to expire by November. Last week, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) denied report it had renewed it.

NCC said the renewal is still undergoing regulatory process. It’s uncertain, the level of impact the prolonged process will have on investors confidence going forward.

Total Nigeria

The oil and gas company was also one of the best performing stock of last week after its share value gained N32.20kobo to rise from Monday’s N168 per share and end with 203.20kobo per share on Friday.

This represents a 20.95 percent rise in shareholders investment during the week. This is a moral booster, but as always, investors still need to trade with caution regardless of the green or red light hanging on a company in the capital market.
