Across sectors within our purview, performance was bearish as 2 indices gained, 3 lost while the Oil & Gas index closed flat. The Insurance and Industrial Goods indices gained 0.6% and 0.1% respectively due to buy interest in AIICO (+3.7%), WAPIC (+2.4%), WAPCO (+1.3%), and CUTIX (+2.7%). Conversely, losses in UBA (-2.8%), ACCESSCORP (-1.1%), and MTNN (-0.5%) dragged the Banking and AFR-ICT indices down by 0.6% and 0.2% sequentially. Similarly, the Consumer Goods index fell 3bps due to price depreciation in INTBREW (-1.0%).

Investor sentiment, as measured by market breadth, weakened marginally to 0.09x from 0.14x as 21 stocks gained, 15 lost while 64 closed flat. We expect bargain hunting activities to support market performance in the final trading session of the week.
