Investment / Highest Dividend Paying Stocks In Nigeria - Profitable Strategies by ogedanny: 8:57pm On Feb 14
Highest Dividend Paying Stocks In Nigeria - Profitable Strategies To Pick & Buy The Best Nigerian Stocks For LongTerm Investments

I hope you enjoyed the detailed analysis I shared on how to pick the best banking stocks for a better portfolio performance? As of now, that investment strategy is the longest article on my blog, so don't read it as a poem but understand how I reviewed Zenith bank's stocks with a modest estimated value that revealed a 15% upside potential from now till March 2018.

As a continuation to the discussion I had with my friends on bank's stock, another good guy asked, do you plan to invest for just price appreciation, or how can one find the best dividend paying stocks in Nigeria stock market? Well, that is was another interesting question because a lot of stock market traders don't have a clear idea of the opportunities in the market, they just want to enjoy price appreciation, and miss out on the residual income from dividend payouts to shareholders. I know a friend who had invested a huge sum into five (5) stable sectors stocks last year and is already expecting his first five (5) figure income this year, besides his portfolio is up by 27% as more institutional investors position themselves ahead of the full year audited report, 2017.

This post focuses on how we jointly picked the best highest dividend paying stocks in Nigeria stock market using a simple method I will be sharing right now:

Check the overall economic indicator - let Oil price guide you.

Anytime I look for stocks to pick, the first step I don't skip is to ascertain the general economic environment using global Oil price trend. This post on how to find the best sector stocks to invest in explains everything you need to know about the effect of oil price on Nigerian economy and opportunities in different sectors.

In summary, I said that an uptick in the price of oil helps government generate more petrodollars which reduce overall economic risk, so expect more fund to be channeled to key sectors like industrial sector as infrastructural projects are re-visited or more capital projects embarked upon, while reserve is also boosted to help cushion the effect of exchange rate.

As at when I shared this post, the banking, industrial and consumer sector have the highest share of investors' confidence, as reflected in their year to date performance. This is not unconnected to the impressive growth recorded last year (2017), following the relatively stable exchange rate and increased market participation at investors and export window. Understanding top sectors let you focus on companies that will do well from government policies driving that sector. I also share how government's planned budget for the rehabilitation and construction of roads are expected to improve cash flow of major building materials firm.

The banking sector is also expected to enjoy improved net interest income from loan and advances to oil sectors. You can read the post here

Investment / How To Pick Best Performing Stocks In Nigeria Today by ogedanny: 5:32pm On Feb 04
How To Pick Best Performing Stocks In Nigeria Today - Learn How I Pick Top Sector Stocks To Buy & Make Money More Trading Shares Online in 2018, and Beyond - 2019, 2020, 2021.

This trading strategy is a continuation of my previous guide on how to know which sector stocks to buy now. In that practical and well thought-out tips, I shared the number one economic indicator to watch before deciding on the sectors to focus on. The reason you must start your trading decision this way is that "the performance of the company you buy into is largely driven by the overall sector trend and government policies". When government decisions favor an industry, it tends to attract more investment from big investors as they channel their funds to companies that will likely receive a boost.

Take, for instance, firms in the building material industry have been grappling with cash flow challenges, rising cost of operation and mounting debt level due to dwindling government revenue that had affected their ability to finance long-term capital projects. If you are an investor looking for sectors to stay away from, this is one of them as the general industry growth may be unimpressive.

But, a rising oil price in the past few months to $60 (above $45 benchmark) provides more revenue for the government to increase her spending on capital projects. From the 2018 budget, the sum of N300 billion was earmarked for road construction and rehabilitation, so expect building materials and cement companies to pick up as abandoned projects will be revisited and more projects awarded. For instance, take Dangote Cement, the company's share (as at when I checked) is already up by 17.39% since the start of the year (2018), Larfage Africa, Northern Nigerian Cement, CAP Nigeria have also gained 17%, 85%, and 14% respectively.

This is a perfect example of how to uncover stocks that will deliver a great return on your investment; start from the overall macro indicator by following the global Oil market as shared here, then focus on sectors that will benefit from the trend and find great stocks in that sector. This doesn't mean that all stocks in a top sector will perform well, some companies may still lag but your core focus is on buying the biggest winners.

Here are steps I have always follow strictly to find the best-performing stocks in the best sector.

Food / Best Nigerian Breakfast Meals For Weight Loss by ogedanny: 10:49am On Feb 03
Nigerian breakfast meal for weight loss - Lose weight, eat healthy and tasty food with these breakfast meals

No one wants to get fat or become obsessed, but everyone wants to become fit in order to get a good compliment and stay healthy. In order to achieve this, one has to put himself/herself on a weight loss regimen to keep the weight off. The problem with restricting yourself to a weight loss regimen is that you may have some difficulties finding suitable meals to keep the weight off. If you are living in Nigeria and you have ever had to lose weight, then you would know how hard it is to find the right type of foods to help you lose weight. The good news is that many of the local foods in Nigeria can be used to encourage weight loss. Eating a healthy breakfast meal does not guarantee that you’ll lose weight. You can still gain weight if your meal is high in calories. To avoid this, I advise that you reduce the size of your servings. You can eat a little and have the rest packed for later. As with everything in life, moderation is key. The very simple formula to weight loss is burning more calories than you take in. Below are Nigerian breakfast meals for weight loss.

Food / The Health Benefits Of Watermelon by ogedanny: 6:14pm On Jan 29
The health benefits of watermelon - Watermelon contains about 92% of water but soaked with a lot of nutrients.

Watermelon is a low-calorie, hydrating fruit that is naturally high antioxidant food, plus a source of vitamins and minerals that can help fight inflammation free radical damage and prevent a number of serious illnesses. It is by far, one of the most powerful body-healing fruits out there. The amazing health benefits of watermelon cover everything from your brain all the way to the cells in your feet.

One of the benefits of watermelon includes containing a high amount of lycopene, a certain type of carotenoid that is currently of great interest to researchers because of its known antioxidant capacity and various potential benefits. Lycopene is responsible for giving many fruits and vegetables, including watermelon, their deep red or pink colour. Lycopene found in watermelon is a powerful antioxidant, meaning it has the ability to fight free radicals in the body that can damage cells.

The health benefits of watermelon
Contains antioxidant: Studies have shown that consuming specific fruits and fruit juices, such as watermelon and watermelon juice can actually reduce the amount of oxidative damage because the antioxidant in those fruits has the power to scavenge the reactive oxidative species and render them harmless. The radical scavenging is actually maintained for up to 90 minutes after the consumption of the fruit or fruit juice, suggesting that the work of antioxidants continues long after you first consume them.
Lowers blood pressure (hypertension): Watermelon is rich in citruline, which is an amino acid that is converted to arginine in the body. In turn, both citrulline and arginine help in the production of nitric oxide, which is a vasodilator, meaning that it helps relax and dilate your blood vessels. When the blood vessels are dilated, more blood can pass freely through, leading to lower blood pressure and less of a risk for such things as stroke and cardiac infarction.

Prevents kidney disorders: watermelon has a very abundant supply of both calcium and potassium, each of which contributes to helping flush out the toxins in the body’s kidney. The calcium provided by watermelon is important for regulating cell functions, maintaining cell structure, and benefiting the cell differentiation process. Extra calcium also aids in reducing the concentration of uric acid in the blood. By decreasing any extra amounts of this acid, the calcium and potassium in watermelon help to reduce the chances of kidney diseases. Although these two compounds are very important, we can’t forget about water, the namesake of this beneficial fruit. Watermelon’s high water content induces frequent urination, which, once again, is always helpful in cleansing the kidneys and keeping them functioning properly.
Prevents cancer: Current research have found direct links between active food components and cancer prevention and treatment. One of the compounds most thoroughly studied is lycopene. Lycopene functions in diminishing insulin growth, which is a vital step in decreasing the prevalence of cancer. Lycopene also helps with the regression of cancer by targeting and interrupting cancer cell growth, apoptasis, carcinogen, metabolism, and hormone regulation.

Heart health: Cardiovascular disease causes a great many deaths. One of the main risk factors for cardiovascular disease is cholesterol content, specifically, the low-density and high-density lipoprotein ratios. Many researchers and scientist alike agree that LDL cholesterol levels are strong independent predictor of coronary heart disease, especially for those patients with diabetes. Fortunately, the abundance of lycopene found in watermelon has been shown to be an effective compound in lowering such cholesterol levels.
Prevents macular degeneration: Deteriorating eye health comes with age, but many simple and convenient measures can prevent premature eye degeneration and unfortunate eye diseases. Many studies and research have focused on the role of carotenoids and vitamins in eye health. Vitamin A is a primary vitamin that helps our eyes stay healthy. A deficiency of such a vital vitamin can cause macular degeneration and exophthalmia.
Aids in digestion: One of the most common gastrointestinal problem is constipation, which is characterized by a slow gastrointestinal transit, a hard stool, and difficulty in passing stool. Drinking plenty of water everyday can eliminate this unfortunate and uncomfortable problem. Because watermelon has both a rich water and fibre content, this juicy fruit easily helps promote regularity for a healthy digestive tract.
Skin care: Vitamin C and E are the most important natural antioxidants for anti-aging benefits because their small molecular weights allow them to penetrate the skin and induce the production of collagen, which is vital for keeping your skin smooth and healthy. Citrus fruits, guava, chilli peppers, and watermelon are all hearty source of vitamin C.

Tips on how to pass the CFA Exam -

Everyone knows that it’s not easy to become a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charterholder. Passing the Level I exam is hard enough – 42% of the 51,134 candidates who took the Level I exam in June 2015 and 43% of the 52,315 candidates that took it in December passed.

Peter Mackey, the head of CFA examination development at the CFA Institute, manages a team of 23 people who develop the CFA exams, as well as the Certificate in Investment Performance Measurement (CIPM) and the Claritas qualification.

Here is his advice for passing the CFA exams:

1. Focus your efforts on the CFA Institute’s curriculum
While other materials and courses may help, it’s important to realize that everything you will see on the exam comes directly from the curriculum that the CFA Institute provides. Look at the exam prep materials and study tips on the institute’s website thoroughly. It sounds basic, but not everyone does it.

“A lot of candidates make a number of mistakes, for example, they rely on too many sources of information rather than focusing on the curriculum,” Mackey said. “It’s hard enough to master in the six months we recommend that you take to learn it – it’s all there for you in the curriculum, so take the time to absorb it.

He touts the fact that, unlike some other qualification programs, his team develops and produces its own curriculum every year.

“In my view it makes it easier and fairer for our candidates, because we will only write a test question based on our assigned curriculum – they won’t get asked something outside of that,” Mackey said. “Writers have to prove that all of the content that the candidate needs to answer the question is in the curriculum.”

2. Keep up-to-date with what’s changed
In the very early days, passing the CFA exams required writing excellent open-ended essays, but it has evolved to become more and more weighted toward the multiple-choice portion. In the early 2000s, Level I went to 100% multiple choice.

“Don’t underestimate Level I; it’s going to be tough,” Mackey said.

Another big change: In 2009 the CFA Institute changed all of its multiple-choice questions to have three answer choices, one correct answer and two distractors, instead of four choices.

“That’s led to a big improvement in the quality of the exams,” Mackey said. “The hardest thing to do is to come up with good distractors, answers that are plausible to a not-well-prepared candidate but not tricky or confusing to a well-prepared candidate.”

3. Know the format
The morning session of Level I lasts three hours, with 120 multiple-choice questions, followed by a two-hour break for lunch, then another three hours to complete an additional 120 multiple-choice questions,

Level II consists of “Item Set” questions, one- to two-page cases of data and information about an institutional or individual investor, then attached to each case are six questions based on that case drawing from the curriculum.

“Level II is similarly structured, but requires a lot more reading, with 60 questions in morning and 60 in the afternoon,” Mackey said. “It’s a bit more complex, with higher-level questions that require comprehending the case information in order to answer them.”

The morning session of the Level III exam has short-answer essay questions that require candidates to make calculations. The afternoon is Item Set questions.

“Level III is more structured than most essay exams might be,” Mackey said. “If you’re trained to take a multiple-choice test, the Level III morning session is not that.”

4. Practice the lost art of penmanship
Keep in mind that you have to write down your answers by hand, which presents a number of challenges in an age of computers. Practice writing for long stretches using a pen or pencil to exercise those hand and finger muscles.

“Most of us don’t write by hand much anymore, so the act of writing for three hours is tough,” Mackey said. “We encourage candidates to practice writing manually in the months before the exam.”

5. Practice makes perfect – but don’t go overboard in any one area
Some candidates spend way too much time on practice questions, drilling and drilling, rather than really taking the time to memorize the curriculum and understand the concepts, Mackey said.

Also, don’t focus obsessively on certain parts of the curriculum that you think will make up the bulk of the test while neglecting others.

“It’s a dangerous game to try to figure out what’s going to be on the test, to the extent that you’re skipping chapters,” Mackey said. “That’s reducing the probability that you’re going to be able to handle the questions you’ll actually see on the exam.”

6. Take care of yourself
Candidates are tempted to cram in as many last few hours of study as they can. But don’t sacrifice time usually spent on exercise, eating well or sleeping a full night for studying – especially in the days just before the exam. If possible, candidates may consider putting in a request now to take some personal time off work for review and rest right before the exam. You want to perform your best, and that means caring for your physical well-being as much as mental preparedness. If your body isn’t ready, then hundreds of hours of prep won’t mean anything.

“You want to perform your best, and that means caring for your physical well-being as much as mental [preparedness],” Mackey said. “If your body isn’t ready, then hundreds of hours of prep won’t mean anything.”

7. Plan the logistics of exam day
Scout the exam location ahead of time. Learn the route, look at parking, plan what you will eat for lunch and where, and have a general notion of what you’re going to walk into.

“You don’t want to be tripped up by little things like that,” Mackey said. “The fewer last-minute decisions to make, the better.”

8. On exam day you’ll want to…
Make sure you have your valid passport, ticket and approved calculator – and leave the personal belongings at home.

“Pay close attention to all the instructions provided to make sure you’re following the procedures properly,” Mackey said.

9. Time management is key
For Level I, you have to complete 40 questions per hour, meaning you can spend an average of 90 seconds on each question.

An important point to remember is that there’s no penalty for a wrong answer. You obviously won’t get credit for a mistake, but it’s important to try to answer every question.

“If you’re not managing your time well, you can really mess yourself up,” Mackey said. “You want to turn in a fully completed answer sheet to give yourself an opportunity to get credit for every question.”

Levels II and III get more complicated. Level III has 12-minute and 23-minute questions, many with multiple parts.

“For Level III in particular, it’s really important to focus on time management,” Mackey said. “Some people write us a treatise on a topic they know well but take twice the allotted time to do it.”

10. Don’t sacrifice attention to detail by rushing
While you have to keep your eye on the clock, some people work too fast. There are a lot of key directions in the pre-exam instructions.

“Candidates fly into this without paying attention, they miss questions, misread them, or they don’t follow instructions and write on the wrong page,” Mackey said. “You have to calm yourself down and work at a steady pace without rushing.”

Despite the fact that the test is timed, read all questions thoroughly. The test-question writers intended for you to read the content entirely, think carefully and do whatever calculation you need to answer it correctly.

“Some candidates read a question too quickly and they think they know the answer, they see one choice that seems logical and they fill in the oval and move on without reading the other options,” Mackey said.

11. They’re not trying to trick you – really
Some people tend to overthink a question, convinced that it’s a clever trap designed to ensnare unsuspecting saps, but they end up outsmarting themselves or taking too much time per question.

“Certain candidates have a view that every question is a trick – that we’re sitting here rubbing our hands thinking ‘How are we going to get them on this one?’” Mackey said. “Candidates can overthink or overcomplicate it by making an unnecessary assumption, ‘I’m sure these guys are trying to trick me,’ which can do more harm than good.

“Take the material we’ve given you – that information is sufficient to answer the questions,” he said. “Don’t bring in other sources of info or make something up – keep it simple and you’ll do well.”

12. Take a deep breath
Stress management is an overlooked element of test-taking. Everyone goes into the day of the exam extremely high strung.

“There’s good stress that can help you and bad stress – if you panic, it will hurt you,” Mackey said. “You’re not going to know all of the answers to all of these questions – nobody gets 100%; if you get 70% you’re doing pretty well.

“If you don’t know an answer, move on,” he said. “The brain is an amazing organ, and research has shown that if you calm down, answers will start to come to you more readily.

“And, once you complete the exam, go celebrate and relax! You earned it. ”

Phones / How To Buy A Good Used Phone At Cheap Price In Computer Village by ogedanny: 8:11am On Nov 07, 2017
UK Used Phones – iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, HTC, Sony Xperia & Huawei Android Smartphones Price List In Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria 2017/2018 – Buy Infinix & Tecno On Jumia

One big challenge a lot of low-budget phone buyers are afraid of is getting screwed when they go to computer village – a popular technology market situated at Ikeja for used smartphones. This challenge is so rampant that many people do not understand how to check a genuinely used phone – they are more focused on the features – battery life, OS, RAM, Memory Size, body design, camera and price – which is far from the real check.

In this guide, I will be sharing basic checks on used phones you shouldn’t overlook when you buy a used phone:

Before you get it twisted, the above features are still very much important, after all, who doesn’t want a smartphone equipped with configurations that deliver speed and performance.

But, here are better checks that will save you from buying sub standard phones:

Go with your charger to be sure the smartphone USB port works well and can transmit power.
Go with a SIM card so you can make or receive calls
Go with a headphone to be sure the audio system is OK!
Try to transfer files via Bluetooth or Xender to be sure you can share music and videos
You can also try the WiFi connectivity to be sure you can enjoy wireless internet connections around you.
Take a shot of one or two objects around to see how the front and back camera quality plays out.
Don’t rush to go, wait for 20, 30 minutes to 1 hour and see the battery strength, make several calls and see if the battery will run down faster – you wouldn’t want to buy a used phone that drains faster on one or two calls.
These are some of the useful tips you can explore to save yourself from fake used phone sellers, however, we don’t think you need to do all these checks before buying a genuine smartphone as we have already done the screening for you, hence, we present to you a list of used phones you can buy and enjoy the exact value offered by a new phone.

Why we don't sell used Infinix and Tecno phones

Why are Infinix and Tecno not listed on your store? My dear! the truth is, there is nothing like UK Used Infinix or Tecno phones, it’s only a strategy adopted by secret sellers to make it look like the usual UK used phones. How did you know? Infinix and Tecno are not available in the UK or London market, they are Chinese products that offer great value at a cheaper price. Besides, the last time I went to computer village to see what these smartphones look like, it’s so obvious that sellers are only there to make money off you by selling substandard products; don’t be deceived, the 16GB, 32GB memory you think are available on the Infinix Note 2, Note 3 or Hot 4 Pro might just be 8GB ROM. Yes! I have seen it. A friend bought Infinix Note 2 for just N28k and in return got less than 8GB ROM (whereas 16GB visible), the camera of 13MP is not even comparable to the output of a 5MP camera. Talking about the battery, every 30 minutes, he had plug the phone to boost power. This is just an eye opener to let you know that there is no UK Used Infinix or Tecno. The best place to find better offers is at Slot or Jumia store.

Food / The Dangers Of Eating Canned Foods by ogedanny: 5:50pm On Oct 15, 2017
The dangers of eating canned foods – A large amount of food that is found in supermarkets is canned which can cause harm to your health. So, why not go for natural foods instead of these dangerous canned foods

A canned food is likely to have BPA (bisphenol A) – a chemical known to cause breast cancer, reproductive problems, heart disease and other chronic health problems. Cans have a special covering made with this chemical. It accumulates in the body and its effects are not good. Eating canned foods has become a habit for many of us. This chemical (BPA) kills rats in laboratories even at smaller portions. This chemical causes hormone imbalances and a wide variety of health issues. You can try glass jars instead of cans for the storing of food.

What most people are unaware of is that most often foods are put into aluminium cans, then sealed, and then cooked, supposedly to retain freshness. But it will certainly retain the aluminium free radicals hanging around after heating and contaminating the food. Aluminum accumulation in the body can cause memory problem like Alzheimer’s. Some people believe that the plastic lining of the aluminium cans is supposed to prevent corrosion and contaminating food with aluminium. But the truth is, most of the time, these plastic liners can’t completely protect the food against aluminium since can leak aluminium when heated and while they are sealed, they will contaminate the food.

Also, an extensive amount of sodium (salt) is used to keep the preservatives found in canned food from rotting so that it can keep the food from rotting. These preservatives are not drastically harmful towards healthy people, but they are harmful to pregnant women, children, babies, elderly, or anyone that has a chronic disease.

The truth is that these can foods like pinto beans, tuna, fruit juice, or vegetables could put your health at risk. Instead of canned foods, go for foods stored in glass jars. Do not consume fruits, vegetables, soups, or grains in cans, you can simply buy the fresh ones.

Diseases caused by consuming canned foods

Cardiovascular disease (heart disease)
Kidney disease
Breast cancer
Reproductive problems
Botulism-is a rare, but serious illness caused by Clostridium botulinum. The germ is found in soil and can survive, grow, and produce toxin in a sealed canned food. This toxin can affect your nerves, paralyze you and even cause death. A small taste of food containing this toxin can be deadly.
Skin and eye irritation
Nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea
Brain tumors
Gastrointestinal problems
Adverse pregnancy outcomes, etc.

Avoid these canned foods

Canned fruits and fruit juice
Canned vegetables and vegetable juice
Canned drinks
Canned soups
Canned fishes (like sardines, geisha etc.)
Pinto beans or canned baked beans
Corn beef
Canned sweet corn
Canned grains
Canned tomato sauce, etc.

Any food stored in cans should be avoided as it causes a lot of harm to your health. You can go for natural foods like;

Natural fruits and vegetables
Natural fruit juices and vegetable juice
Fresh fish
Kidney beans or cowpea
A well-cooked soup
Whole grains
Well-cooked tomato sauce
Natural drinks like zobo, kunu aya, almond milk, kunu drink, etc
Nuts like cashew, walnut, groundnut, or any other natural nuts

There are a whole lot of natural foods you can consume. Consuming these natural foods is the best as it contains the nutrients you need. It is free from chemicals and other harmful substances that are used in processing and preservation of foods. Always have a nice combination of these natural foods in order to meet nutritional needs.
