The Nigerian Stock Exchange All-Share Index lost 32 basis points. The week started off on a bearish note in the banking sector with more losses recorded than gains. Healthy demand for top-tier banks during the session however led to marginal gains for GTBank, First Bank and Access Bank, while UBA bagged maximum points.
On the other hand, mid-tier banks were sent southwards as Stanbic IBTC, FCMB and Fidelity Bank all lost over 3.0 per cent apiece. Guinness was skewed to the sell side, shedding maximum points; however current levels might attract interest and curb the current slide.
Nigeria Breweries however inched up slightly with interest around the lower N109.00 band. Profit taking shaved off a further 4.9 per cent from Dangote Flour with closing sentiments suggesting a continuation of this trend; Honeywell Flour also shed 4.2 per cent.
