I apologize for not posting anything in over 5 months now.

Henceforth, you can expect regular posts on the website. I will be posting reports for the Nigerian Stock Exchange for the previous week on Mondays. Economic updates will be posted on Wednesdays and company results for the week will be posted on Fridays.

Courtesy of FSDH Securities, here are the results released in the weeks of July 18th – 22nd, July 25th – 29th and August 1st – 5th:

Courtesy of Lead Capital, FSDH, Afrinvest, and IBTC, here is the NSE report for the week ended December 3rd 2010:

·         The NSE All-Share Index went up by 79 basis points, ending the week on a positive note despite the downward movement recorded in the index today.

·         The banking sub-sector traded mostly sideways this week, however, Access Bank led the gainers’ list by 5.0%. Other gainers include Ecobank, GTBank, Sterling Bank and Afribank with gains between 2.7% and 3.3%. Skye Bank, Zenith Bank and UBA also recorded gains between 0.9% and 1.4%. On the flip side, the rescued banks topped the losers’ list in the sector. Unity Bank, Wema Bank, Union Bank and FinBank shed between 5.0% and 9.0%, largely due to profit taking activities by participants.

·         The building materials sector experienced low trading activities throughout the week. It however picked up slightly on the last trading day. Ashaka Cement recorded an 8.8% uptick, followed closely by Dangote Cement with 2.0%. Lafarge Wapco also recorded a 1.2% gain. CCNN was however the lone loser in the sector, shedding 3.2% to close the week.

·         All the three stocks that traded in the breweries sector recorded varied gains this week; Guinness, NB and International Breweries gathered gains in excess of 4.0%.

And here are the charts for the week’s performance:
