Stock market rebounds as Accesscorp releases five year strategic plan

by Business News Report

Accesscorp has on the floor of the Exchange released a new 5-year strategic plan (2023-2027) which it intends to implement to achieve; improved value accretion, agility and scale leverage, best-in-class talent, targeted consolidation, and enhanced risk rating beyond the sovereign. Market operators say they anticipate a medium-term synergy gain among the Group’s Subsidiaries (Bank, Pensions and Insurance Brokage) as it implements the new plan. Meanwhile the NGX-ASI bounced back with a 67bps gain to print at 52,701.31 points due to buying interest in AIRTELAF, NESTLE and WAPCO. As a result, the YTD return increased to 2.8% (previously: 2.1%) while market capitalisation gained ₦192.0 billion to ₦28.7 trillion. Activity level improved as volume and value traded climbed 3.0% and 36.7% to 228.5m units and ₦4.4bn respectively.

According to Afrinvest notes to investors performance across sectors was bullish as 5 indices gained while 1 index lost. The AFR-ICT index led the gainers, up 1.8% following price uptick in AIRTELAF (+3.2%). Trailing, the Consumer Goods and Banking indices rose 0.5% and 0.2% respectively on the back of gains in NESTLE (+1.9%), FLOURMILL (+3.0%), ETI (+2.7%), and UBA (+0.6%). Also, price appreciation in WAPCO (+1.6%) and MRS (+9.9%) drove the Industrial Goods and Oil & Gas indices up 0.2% and 0.1% respectively. Conversely, the Insurance index fell 0.1% on account of sell pressure on LINKASSURE (-6.4%) and WAPIC (-2.2%).
