ASI maintains gaining streak, up 292bps w/w

Following five consecutive sessions in positive territory, the NSE ASI gained 2.92% w/w, following a 31bps d/d uptick at week close. Three key sectors closed in the green, with the Oil & Gas sector (+257bps d/d, +254bps w/w) taking the lead thanks to gains in SEPLAT (+575bps d/d, w/w) and ETERNA (+330bps d/d,  10.59% w/w). Similarly, the Consumer Goods (+123bps d/d, +410bps w/w) and Banking sectors (+121bps d/d, +810bps w/w) recorded strong positive performances after upticks in PZ (+752bps d/d, w/w), NESTLE (+204bps d/d, +563bps w/w), UBA (+408bps d/d, +699bps w/w) and GUARANTY (+171bps d/d, +14.69bps). Conversely, the Industrial Goods sector (-173bps d/d, 66bps w/w) was the only loser for the day and week following declines in DANGCEM (-237bps d/d, w/w) and CCNN (-200bps d/d). 

• Positive market performance in the market has been driven by bargain hunters with increased activity from both local and foreign players. We expect the positive trend to persist amid sustained interest on select stocks even as investors position to take advantage of a possible postelection rally.  

• Stock Watch: DANGFLOUR is the second best performing stock this week, gaining 18% in four out of five sessions. The stock gained 8% today to close at ?6.85, trading at its highest price since March 2018.


Offshore investors drive bullish bond market

• The CBN retained its tight monetary stance this week, notably selling ?644 billion (?550 billion offered) in four OMO auctions this week, even as a ?315 billion OMO maturity also hit the system. Nonetheless, the Interbank Call rate declined 334bps w/w to 18.67%. 

• Following a mixed trading week in the T-bills market with see-saw sentiment throughout the week, yields closed flat w/w with no movements recorded on average across the curve. Particularly, whilst the yield on the 34DTM bill declined 126bps w/w to settle at 11.16%, the yield on the 97DTM bill advanced 105bps w/w to settle at 12.32%. Meanwhile, the bond space recorded another significantly positive week, with average yields on benchmark bonds moderating 25bps w/w (-10bps d/d). Notably, market intelligence credits the surge in demand to increased participation from foreign investors, even as FPI proportion of I&E FX window flows have increased from previous months. Specifically, the yields on the 13.98% FGN FEB 2028 and 12.40% FGN MAR 2036 bonds declined 31bps and 47bps w/w to close at  14.47% and 14.61% respectively. 

• Whilst we anticipate continued interest in the bond market amidst a resurgence in FPI inflows, we foresee sustained tepid trading in the Tbills market as the CBN maintains pressure on liquidity.  

• The Naira appreciated ?0.98 w/w at the I&E FX Window to settle at ?361.73 and ?3.00 w/w to settle at ?359.50 against the dollar in the parallel market.       

• We expect the naira to remain largely stable across the various windows of the currency space as the CBN maintains interventions in the FX market.
