Mixed Sessions Ahead On H1 Earnings, Dividend News, Inflation Index, MPC Meeting


Market Update for the Week Ended July 9 and Outlook for July 12-16

The first full trading week of the month of July, which also ushered in the third quarter and earnings reporting season on the Nigerian Exchange had a mixed trend, closing the period marginally lower on an above-average traded volume. As a result, the market halted previous weeks of bull-run as low-priced stocks hit new highs, amidst profit-taking on blue-chip companies and selloff among the highly-priced equities, all of which slowed down the recovery move.

During the week, market participants continued to rebalance their portfolios ahead of the earnings season that kicked off with Infinity Trust Mortgage Bank presenting impressive numbers that may be giving an insight into what the half-year score-cards could look like. Besides all eyes already fixed on Q2 corporate earnings, there are also expectations for economic data and the July meeting of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Money Policy Committee.

The continued notification of closed period and board meetings by directors of quoted companies for approval of their half-year financials may have triggered buying interests across sectors, including value and growth stocks of dividend-paying equities. We note also that the March year-end accounts may already be pointing the direction as to what investors should expect from the larger market, going forward. The summary is that some of these companies grew their payout while some had a dividend cut to reflect their performance for the financial year ended March 31, 2021, just as low priced stocks like Cutix, Learn Africa and UPDC Plc are trading on new 52-week highs.

The global economy and markets remain mixed despite the vaccination-driven economic recovery across climates, even as the World Bank has upgraded its economic growth outlook based on the ongoing vaccination, reopening of economies, and government policies at different levels. The developed markets during the week rebounded after early selloffs on strong economic outlooks and recovery.

Back home, the nation’s equity market suffered a setback on profit-taking and selloffs among the highly capitalized stocks ahead of earnings expectation in the midst of seeming economic recovery and oscillating oil prices above the national budget benchmark of $45 that had supported government expenditure and reflected for the first time in the nation external reserve after 11 weeks of decline. Implementation of the 2021 national budget continues, with a supplementary budget of over N900 billion underway. These will be helped by the CBN’s continued intervention in critical sectors to boost productivity needed to create employment and support the supply side and check inflation.

In the new week, we expect the release of the June consumer price index (CPI) by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) that would likely show a reversal in the inflation trend; just as the CBN’s Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) for June is not out yet.

Already, corporate actions and earnings reporting season have been extended to July and August for December, March, April, and May year-end accounts, the fundamentals of these earnings and dividend declaration will support the ongoing positive sentiment in the market. Also, we note that some high and low-priced stocks have this month as their qualification and mark down dates, a situation that will keep the market oscillating, while at the same supporting recovery. During the week, the share prices of Fidson Healthcare, Presco, and Conoil were adjusted for dividends recommended by their board of directors.

Traders and investors who understand the importance of combining fundaments and technical analysis in making investment decisions in the stock market should take this opportunity to position in some sectors for medium and short-term gains. They include the banking, telecom, industrial, agribusiness, real estate, construction, and consumer goods sectors, after a careful study of economic recovery and sectors that had supported the weak recovery which is likely to influence the performance of the companies in that industry and the market.

Movement Of NSEASI

NGX action index had a mixed performance last week with three sessions of upmarket and two trading days of losses, thereby short-living the bull transition of the previous week, as high-priced stocks like Airtel Africa and others suffered losses. This depressed the market and changed the trend on a daily time frame.

Trading opened the week on a positive note Monday when the index gained 0.04%, a situation that was sustained on Tuesday and midweek as the NGX index closed 0.52% and 0.22% higher respectively. The index, however, pulled back on Thursday and Friday when the index shed 0.08% and, then 1.24% respectively, which was enough to wipe out the gains recorded earlier in the week. These brought total loss for the period to 0.57%, as against the previous week’s 1.47% gain.

Consequently, the key performance NGX index lost 217.82 basis points, closing at 37,994.19bps from after opening at 38,212.01bps, touching an intra-week low of 37,980.21bps from its highs of 38,501.31bps on selloffs in high cap and profit booking among the blue-chip stocks. Also, NGX market capitalization dropped by N12.74bn to N19.8tr, compared to the previous week’s N19.92tr, which also represented a 0.62% depreciation in value.

The weekly advancers’ table was dominated by low cap stocks, in the midst of selloffs for portfolio repositioning and balancing ahead of earnings expectations as investors continue to study trend and the changing environment. Price actions reveal the presence of sellers in the market, a situation that did not impact negatively on the sectorial indexes, four of which closed higher, while the consumer goods index was marginally down.

Also, during the week, UACN Property Development Company, officially changed its name to UPDC Plc with the trading symbol of UPDC, following the acquisition of a majority 51% stake by Custodian Investment Plc.

The seeming negative outing for the week did not reflect on market breadth, as gainers outnumbered losers in the ratio of 44:22 on 97% selling volume and 3% buy position, just as Money Flow Index looked down, reading 52.46bps from the previous week’s 52.84 points. This is an indication that funds exited equity space on profit-taking.

NGXASI WEEKLY CHART MOVEMENT

NGX index action has formed a rectangle chart pattern of consolidation on a weekly time frame, with candlestick formation yet to confirm direction at the end of the period under review, after forming a double bottom that supports a continuation of trend and reversal, ahead of Q2 financials. Already the daily chart has confirmed a change in trend, following which all eyes are on Monday’s trading.

Bullish Sectoral Indices

Performance indexes across the sectors were bullish, except for NGX Consumer goods that closed lower by 0.12%, while NGX Oil/Gas led the advancers after recording 6.35% higher, followed by Banking, Industrial goods, and Insurance indexes with 3.29%, 0.19%, and 0.17% respectively up,

Activates in volume and value terms were mixed as investors exchanged 1.35bn shares worth N12.14bn, compared to the previous week’s 1.02bn units valued at N14.15bn, with volume driven by trades in Financial Services, ICT industry, and Conglomerates particularly Fidelity Bank, FBNH, Zenith Bank, Chams, and Transcorp.

UPDC Plc and Cutix were the best-performing stocks for the week after gaining 40% and 21% respectively, closing at N1.21 and N3.63 per share on market forces and full-year earnings expectations. On the other hand, Redstar Express and Eterna lost 15.26% and 14.80% respectively, at N3.11and N6.39 per share, on profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a mixed performance on more earnings expectation and profit-taking, as bargain hunting and accumulation of dividend-paying stocks to realign their portfolio, with all eyes on the June consumer price index in the week ahead of the MPC meeting, just as fixed income market yields are slowing down due to bearish trend in the market.

Any breakout at this point offers new entry opportunities for traders and investors to reposition in value-laden underpriced growth stocks, while the just-concluded March year-end accounts audited full-year numbers submission has supported the recovery. This is based on the fact that fixed income yields may not be enough to scare all investors away from the equity market.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer a negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in July.

Reversal Ahead On NGX, Amid Profit-taking, As Investors Await Q2 Earnings Release


Market Update for July 13

The mixed sentiment, as well as the wait-and-see attitude of players on the Nigerian Exchange, continued on Tuesday with the composite All-Share index closing flat on the positive breadth and low traded volume to resist decline, while all eyes remain fixed on the expected corporate earnings and economic data.

An earnings season that could be massively profitable is here as more numbers start hitting the market again, while sectors and stocks that have historically reacted with at least 10% moves up or down over the past decade are preparing to make their numbers available to investors any moment from now. As such, investors and traders should not jump out of fundamentally sound stocks with positive technical charts base and patterns.

The prevailing mixed sentiments and NGX index action divergence with the indicators on a low traded volume are signals that reversal is imminent, knowing the power of volume in price or index movement is very important at this point. Also, the volume drying up ahead of strong support at 37,804.17 basis points indicates the dearth of supply, as the index resists a breakdown of this strong support of 37,857.27bps with the money flow index inching up to indicate the entrance of funds into the market.

We know that corporate and analyst forecasts are made to be beaten. In fact, many analysts have typically increased estimates for Q2 numbers while companies are forecasting higher earnings in Q3, even as higher-than-expected earnings will make stocks cheaper. At the moment, the market’s Price-to-Earnings ratio, just like those of many companies, is trading below 18 times of their earnings. In an environment of relatively low interest and high inflation, stocks historically, tend to move higher on earnings performance.

To navigate the month’s profitably, order for Investdata video title: Stock Market Analysis Beyond Fundamentals and Technical Analysis to enhance trading decisions and boost your bottom line. Also, to up your game in stock trading and investing, checkout the video materials below.

Tuesday trading started slightly in the green before oscillating to sustain the negative trend on positon taking and selloffs among high cap stocks that pushed the benchmark index to an intraday low of 37,846.94 basis points from its highs of 37,881.58bps, and thereafter closed slightly below its opening point of 37,857.24bps.

Market technicals were weak and mixed, with volume traded slightly higher than the previous day’s, in the midst of positive breadth and mixed sentiments as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiments Report showing 70% ‘sell’ volume and 30% buy position. The total transaction volume index stood at 0.89 points, just as the impetus behind the day’s performance was relatively strong, as seen in the 53.40pts Money Flow Index, compared to the previous day’s 53.21pts, indicating that funds enter the market, despite closing flat.

Index and Market Caps

At the close of trading on Tuesday, the NGX All Share Index dropped marginally by 0.65 basis points, closing at 37,857.24bps, from an opening level of 38,857.89bps, representing a 0.002% drop, just as market capitalization lost N340m, closing at N19.72tr, from its opening value of N19.72tr, representing a 0.002% value loss.

Attention: If you have not signed up for INVESTDATA buy and sell signal setup, don’t delay, because the number of stocks entering their buy range has just increased to 24 as they build a new bullish base and positive chart patterns to be on our watchlist. These stocks are with double potentials to rally considering their earnings prospect and oscillating mood of the market at this earnings season.

To become a member, send ‘YES’ or ‘STOCKS’ to the phone numbers below. Take advantage of this service to buy right and sell right at the current oscillating market in the midst of earnings season, portfolio reshuffling, and repositioning as we await an economic reform policy to stimulate and re-track the economy again.

The session’s downturn was due to profit-taking and indecision among traders in stocks like GTCO, Zenith Bank, FBNH, UCAP, PZ Cussons, and FCMB, among others. This impacted mildly on Year-To-Date loss, increasing it to 5.99%, while the drop in market capitalization YTD inched up to N1.84tr, representing a 6.45% drop from its opening value for the year.

Mixed Sector Indices

Performance indexes across sectors were mixed, as NGX Oil/Gas and Insurance were down by 0.04% and 0.01% respectively, while NGX Banking index led the advancers, after gaining 0.37%, followed by Consumer with 0.31% higher, while NGX Industrial goods closed flat.

Market breadth remained positive with gainers outnumbering losers in the ratio of 17:13, while activities in volume and value terms were mixed after investors exchanged 197.28 million shares worth N1.92bn, with volume driven by trades in Wema Bank, GTCO. UPDC, Fidelity Bank, and UBA.

NCR and WemaBank were the best-performing stocks, gaining 9.64% and 9.46%, closing at N2.73 and N0.81 per share respectively on market forces and earnings expectation. On the flipside, Ikeja Hotel and Custodian Investment Plc lost 9.09% and 6.15% respectively, closing at N1.40 and N6.10per share, on profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a reversal or breakdown depending on market forces today, as profit-taking and renew buying interests continued ahead of the release of more Q2 numbers any moment from now, amid the declining volume and divergence that supports an uptrend while smart money takes advantage of pullbacks to reposition ahead of earnings and economic data expectations. It is noteworthy that oil price continues its recovery at the international market, even as corporate actions and interim dividend possibilities around the corner.

We note also that some stocks are trading within their buy ranges to become more attractive at this point for income investors and traders, even as the market anticipates positive news, while oil price continues to oscillate above $73pb to support global economic and stock market recovery across climates. We also expect the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination to support the global and domestic economic recovery that will enhance the market and give direction.

The banking sector and others remain attractive on the back of the prevailing low prices, despite the Q1 mixed numbers.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer a negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in the coming week.

“In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.” Robert Arnott
 
I've got news for you. If you think you can strike it big while staying perfectly comfortable, you're wrong. 

And it won't be very long before you figure that out for yourself. 
 
The fact is, it's hard to get the rewards when you never take any risks. While no one wants you to stop investing and start gambling, you can't level up your trading if you aren't willing to risk a little discomfort now and then.
 
I'm not saying it's impossible, but why stack the odds against yourself?

Caution Still, As Investors Await More Earnings, Reposition For Interim Div


Market Update for the Week Ended July 16 and Outlook for July 19-23

Sectorial rotation and selloff in highly capitalized stocks continued last week as the key performance index, blue chips and mid-cap stocks resisted further decline, reversing up on increased traded volume. This was in the midst of impressive Q2 corporate earnings so far released, and positive economic data, especially the rise in the consumer price index for June which dropped to 17.75%, making it the third consecutive month of decline in inflation amidst soaring prices of food, goods, and services across the country.

This is to be expected, given that the supply side of the economy remains weak and incapable of supporting the rising production cost and prices of manufactured products. There are also mixed sentiments, with the market side-trending at this point in the earnings reporting season, with early filers hitting the market with strong numbers. We see the expected momentum, liquidity, sentiments, and activities associated with the season underway to support the anticipated reversal, given that the NGX index action has formed a hammer candlestick on the weekly time-frame with low volume as wave 5 extension builds on the expected half-year financials ahead of this week’s Monetary Policy Committee meeting’s outcome.

The broad market and sector indexes are holding strong at this point as the rate of selloff and profit-taking have slowed down ahead with more earnings reports and positive economic data in the face of the persisting weak economic recovery. Also noteworthy is the fact that interim dividend-paying stocks and medium cap equities are resisting decline at their five to six months’ strong support levels ahead of their quarterly financials that are around the corner.

United Capital Plc and Unilever Nigeria released their half-year earnings reports surprising investors with 51 kobo and 12 kobo Earnings Per Share during the week, after turnover improved by 54.6% and 43.2% respectively to N6.85bn and N39.15bn respectively, which beat market and analysts expectations. The market is expected to react to these and other numbers as investors become more confident of good dividends at the end of the current financial year.

We know that corporate and analyst forecasts are made to be beaten. In fact, many analysts have typically increased estimates for Q2 numbers while companies are forecasting higher earnings in Q3, even as higher-than-expected earnings will make stocks cheaper. At the moment, the market’s Price-to-Earnings ratio, just like those of many companies, is trading below 18 times their earnings. In an environment of relatively low interests and high inflation, stocks historically, tend to move higher on earnings performance.

Traders and investors who understand the importance of combining fundaments and technical analysis in making investment decisions in the stock market should take this opportunity to position in some sectors for medium and short-term gains. They include the banking, telecom, industrial goods, agribusiness, real estate, construction, and consumer goods sectors, after a careful study of economic recovery and sectors that had supported the weak recovery which is likely to influence the performance of the companies in that industry and the market.

Movement Of NSEASI

NGX action index had a mixed performance last week with three sessions of the down market and two days of gains, thereby extending the bear transition for the second consecutive week, as low-priced stocks recorded gains in the midst of mixed sentiments and slight market breadth. The wait-and-see attitude of players was obvious during the week under review, as shown in the volume traded on the daily and weekly charts.

Trading opened for the week Monday on a negative note with the index shedding 0.34%, which was sustained on Tuesday with the composite index sliding down by 0.04% before reversing up at midweek when the NGX index closed 0.08% up. On Thursday, it returned south, slipping 0.07% down, after which retraced up on Friday gaining 0.21%, which was not enough to wipe out the losses recorded earlier in the week. These brought total loss for the period to 0.12%, which was, however; better than the previous week’s 0.57% slide.

Consequently, the benchmark NGX All-Share Index lost 47.01 basis points, closing at 37,947.18bps after opening at 38,994.19bps, touching an intra-week low of 37,854.17bps from its highs of 38,988.90bps on selloffs in high cap and profit booking among the blue-chip stocks. Also, market capitalization dropped by N280bn, closing at N19.77tr, compared to the previous week’s N19.8tr, which also represented a 0.12% depreciation in value.

The weekly advancers’ table was dominated by low cap stocks as usual, in the midst of selloffs and portfolio repositioning and balancing ahead of earnings expectations as investors continue to study trends and the changing environment. Price actions reveal the presence of bears in the market, a situation that reflected on some of the sectorial indexes, three of which closed lower, while the Oil/ Gas and Banking indexes were up.

Also, during the week, the share price NAHCO was adjusted for the 13 kobo dividend recommended by its board of directors, as the corporate bond of C & I Leasing was listed on the exchange.

The seeming negative outing for the week reflected on the market breadth, as decliners outnumbered advancers in the ratio of 32:29 on 75% buy position and 25% sell volume, just as Money Flow Index stayed flat, reading 52.13bps from the previous week’s 52.46 points. This is an indication that funds left the market on profit-taking.

NGXASI WEEKLY CHART MOVEMENT


From the above, the NGX index action has formed a descending triangle chart pattern of consolidation on a weekly time frame, with the candlestick formation supporting an uptrend which is subject to confirmation next week to give direction, after forming a double bottom that supports a continuation of trend and reversal, ahead of Q2 financials. Already the daily chart has confirmed a change in trend, following which all eyes are on Monday’s trading.

Mixed Sectoral Indices

Performance across the sectors was mixed, with the NGX Energy and Banking indexes closing 1.81% and 0.09% higher respectively, while the NGX Insurance led the decliners after losing 1.07%, followed by Consumer and Industrial goods indexes with 0.85% and 0.30% down respectively.

Transactions in volume and value terms fell, as investors exchanged 1.01bn shares worth N10.92bn, compared to the previous week’s 1.35bn units valued at N12.14bn, with volume driven by trades in Financial Services, Conglomerates and ICT industry particularly GTCO, UBA, Zenith Bank, Transcrop and Chams.

The best-performing stocks for the week were FTN Cocoa and NCR, which gained 20.59% and 20.48% respectively, closing at N0.41 and N3.00 per share on market forces and sentiments. On the flip side, Ikeja Hotel and CHI Plc lost 18.83% and 15.71% respectively, at N1.25 and N0.59 per share, purely profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a sustained trend on more impressive numbers and reduced profit-taking, as market reaction to position earnings continued in the midst of bargain hunter and discerning investors accumulate a position in dividend-paying stocks to realign their portfolio, with all eyes on MPC meeting, just as fixed income market yields are slowing down due to bearish trend in the market.

Any breakout of the recent support level that turns resistance will offer new entry opportunities for traders and investors to reposition in value-laden underpriced growth stocks, while the just-concluded March and April year-end accounts audited full-year numbers submission has supported the recovery of low priced stocks. This is based on the fact that fixed income yields may not be enough to scare all investors away from the equity market.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in July.

Expect Uptrend Amid Profit-Taking Slowdown, Investors Positioning For Q2 Numbers


Market Update for July 19

Earnings expectations boosted trading on the Nigerian Exchange Monday as volatility and the mixed session continued, thereby extending the bullish outing for two consecutive days on a very high traded volume and positive breadth.

The rekindled buying interests in dividend-paying stocks and mid-cap equities with a high possibility of sustained an uptrend in earnings as the market expects their half-year and Q1 numbers any moment from now. This has supported the session’s high volume trades, which was on 98% buy position and money flow index looking up to read 69.21 points, indicating the entrance of funds into equity space ahead of more numbers and outcome of next week’s Monetary Policy Committee meeting.

Market players who understand the importance of combining fundaments and technical analysis in making investment decisions in the stock market should take this opportunity to position in some sectors for medium and short-term gains. They include the banking, telecom, industrial, agribusiness, real estate, construction, and consumer goods sectors, after a careful study of economic recovery and sectors that had supported the weak recovery which is likely to influence the performance of the companies in that industry and the market.

Technically, NGX index action has gradually entered wave 5 extension in continuation of its zigzag chart patterns that support an uptrend in the face of weak economic recovery and expectation of more corporate earnings to boost liquidity, sentiment, and momentum. This is as Investors on the sideline jump back to the market after the MPC meeting holding July 26 and 27, 2021.

Many analysts have typically increased estimates for Q2 numbers while companies are forecasting higher earnings in Q3, even as higher-than-expected earnings will make stocks cheaper. At the moment, the market’s Price-to-Earnings ratio, just as in many companies, is trading below 18 times of earnings. In an environment of relatively low interest and high inflation, stocks historically, tend to move higher on earnings performance.

To navigate the rest of the month and beyond profitably, order for Investdata video title: Stock Market Analysis Beyond Fundamentals and Technical Analysis to enhance trading decisions and boost your bottom line. Also, to up your game in stock trading and investing, check out the video materials below.

Meanwhile, Monday’s trading opened slightly on the upside and oscillated to a marginally positive position on buying interests in energy, insurance, and manufacturing stocks that pushed the NGX index to an intraday high of 37,953.35 basis points from its lows of 37,912.50bps, and thereafter closed slightly above its opening point at 37,952.65bps.

Market technicals were positive and strong, with volume traded higher than the previous day’s, in the midst of breadth favouring the bulls on a high buying pressure as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiments Report showing 98% ‘buy’ volume and 2% sell position. The total transaction volume index stood at 2.02 points, just as momentum behind the day’s performance was relatively strong, as seen in the 69.21pts Money Flow Index, compared to the previous day’s 59.91pts, indicating that funds entered the market, despite closing flat.

Index and Market Caps

At the end of Monday’s trading session, composite NGXASI inched up by 5.47 basis points, closing at 37,952.65bps, from an opening level of 38,947.17bps, representing a 0.01% up, just as market capitalization rose by N2.84bn, closing at N19.77tr, from its opening value of N19.77 trillion, representing a 0.01% value gain.

Attention: If you have not signed up for INVESTDATA buy and sell signal setup, don’t delay, because the number of stocks entering their buy range has just increased to 24 as they build a new bullish base and positive chart patterns to be on our watchlist. These stocks are with double potentials to rally considering their earnings prospect and oscillating mood of the market at this earnings season.

To become a member, send ‘YES’ or ‘STOCKS’ to the phone numbers below. Take advantage of this service to buy right and sell right at the current oscillating market in the midst of earnings season, portfolio reshuffling, and repositioning as we await an economic reform policy to stimulate and re-track the economy to the path of growth and development.

Monday’s upturn was driven by position taking in Presco, GTCO, United Capital, Honeywell, Vitafoam, University Press, Livestock Feeds, Wema Bank, Cutix, and Africa Prudential, among others. This impacted mildly on Year-To-Date loss, increasing it to 5.76%, while the drop in market capitalization YTD rose to N1.2tr, representing a 5.98% drop from its opening value of the year.

Bullish Sector Indices

Performance indexes across the sectors were bullish, except for the NGX Banking that was down by 0.37%, while the NGX Insurance index led the advancers, after gaining 1.18%, followed by Energy, Consumer, and Industrial goods with 0.29%, 0.10%, and 0.01% higher respectively.

Market breadth remained positive with gainers outnumbering losers in the ratio of 22:10, while activities in volume and value terms were mixed after traders exchanged 462.81m shares worth N1.2bn, with volume driven by trades in Jaiz Bank, Sterling Bank, Wema Bank, Sovereign Trust Insurance and Universal Insurance.

Eterna and University Press were the best-performing stocks, gaining 10% and 9.93%, closing at N7.15 and N1.55 per share respectively on earnings expectation and market forces. On the flipside, FTN Cocoa and Sovereign Trust Insurance lost 7.32% and 6.06% respectively, closing at N0.38 and N0.31per share, on profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect an uptrend after the holidays on bargain hunters positioning and investors accumulation, as profit-taking slows down amidst rekindled buying interests ahead of more Q2 numbers grace the market, amid the increasing volume that suggests that an end is in sight, while smart money takes advantage of pullbacks to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues its oscillation at the international market, even as corporate actions and interim dividend possibilities are around the corner.

We note also that some stocks are trading within their buy ranges to become more attractive at this point for income investors and traders, even as the market anticipates positive news, while oil price continues to oscillate above $69pb to support global economic and stock market recovery across climates. We also expect the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination to support the global and domestic economic recovery that will enhance the market and give direction.

The banking sector and others remain attractive on the back of the prevailing low prices, despite the Q1 mixed numbers.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer a negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in the coming week.

SEC Nigeria, Oando Plc Reach Landmark Settlement After Four-Years Faceoff


After over 48 months of long-drawn battle, the management of both Nigeria’s Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), on Monday confirmed in separate statements that they have entered into a settlement that would result in the withdrawal of a plethora of court cases.

According to the SEC, the settlement, which confirms a story by Investdata News of an impending political solution to the faceoff, was entered into on Thursday, July 15, 2021, “in the overriding interest of the shareholders of the company and the capital market,” even without Oando Plc “accepting or denying liability.”

Terms of the settlement, the commission’s management explained, included “amongst others: Immediate withdrawal of all legal actions filed by the company and all affected directors; payment of a monetary sum; and an undertaking by the company to implement corporate governance improvements.”

Describing the settlement as a win for the nation’s capital market and especially shareholders, Oando Plc said in its statement, that the settlement is a win for the Capital Market, specifically shareholders who have been the hardest hit, especially in light of the nature of challenges the country has been faced with, will enable its management “focus on its business operations.”

As part of the terms, Oando Plc is to submit “quarterly reports on its compliance with the terms of the Settlement Agreement; the Investments and Securities Act, 2007; the SEC Rules and Regulations; the National Code of Corporate Governance and the SEC Guidelines to the Code of Corporate Governance.”

Pursuant to the powers conferred on it by the Investments and Securities Act 2007, and the Rules and Regulations made pursuant thereto, the Commission recalled that in its letter dated May 31, 2019, Oando Plc was given certain directives and sanctions imposed.

The directives and sanctions, which followed investigations conducted pursuant to two petitions filed with the Commission in 2017, were challenged by the company and some of its affected directors “in a series of suits commenced at the Federal High Court.

The company, the SEC continued, “subsequently approached the commission for a settlement of the matter, and both parties have now agreed to settle in consideration of the impact that a further prolonged period of litigation would have on the Company’s shareholders and the value of their investments as well as remedial measures to be put in place by the company in enhancing its corporate governance practices and strengthening its internal control environment.”

The commission, therefore, reiterated “its commitment to ensuring the fairness, transparency, and integrity of the capital market, while upholding its mandate to protect investors.”

Continuing, Oando listed the task ahead of its management to include ensuring value creation “for its shareholders, and in the immediate, (and) to convene its 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) to give its shareholders the opportunity to exercise their rights to receive information as well as vote on company affairs.”

Reacting, Engr. Patrick Ajudua, a shareholder of the company, who expressed great delight at the news of an amicable settlement expressed hope “ that lessons have been learnt and efforts must be made to assist the management team return to business as usual and recover from the lengthy dispute in order to deliver value to us. On the part of the regulator, we are grateful to them for towing the part of a peaceful resolution. To the Board and Management of Oando, I want to commend their resilience and patience all through the period of the dispute.”

Mixed Trend Ahead, As Investors Await More Earnings, MPC Meeting Outcome


Market Update for the Week Ended July 23 and Outlook for July 26-30

NGX Indexes were up over the past trading week, despite the two days Salah holiday, as earnings reports season commenced fully with more impressive numbers emanated from different sectors and companies on the exchange. This, expectedly, boosted market sentiment, as it turned positive, with improved liquidity and activities that impacted equity prices, halting two consecutive weeks of correction and profit-taking.

The recent rekindled buying interests and rally resulted from investors realigning their portfolios among sectors and stocks with high upside potentials, with their expected earnings likely to beat market and analyst expectations.

Already, corporate earnings released so far have given insights into what the market and investors should expect, especially with the prevailing mixed and weak macroeconomic indices ahead of next week’s Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting with the expectation that members will retain the benchmark rates. Many feel that economic recovery, so far, is weak and fragile such that any form of hike in interest rate, no matter how mild, could truncate the process. This is given that the supply side of the production chain is still lacking due to the high cost of production, imported inflation, Naira devaluation, lack of infrastructure, high cost of energy that continues to fuel the cost of transportation, among others.

Many analysts have typically increased estimates for Q2 numbers, while companies are forecasting higher earnings in Q3, even as higher-than-expected earnings will make stocks cheaper. At the moment, the market’s Price-to-Earnings ratio, just as in many companies, is trading below 18 times of earnings. In an environment of relatively low interest and high inflation, stocks historically tend to move higher on earnings performance.

Many discerning investors and smart money are already positioned in some sectors and stocks for medium and short-term gains, including banking, energy, telecom, industrial, agribusiness, real estate, construction, and consumer goods. Note that these are sectors where the high operating costs have been transferred to consumers, after a careful study of economic recovery and sectors that had supported the weak recovery which is likely to influence the performance of the companies in that industry and the market.

Movement Of NSEASI

The three trading sessions of bull transition for the period was supported by increasing traded volume on the daily time frame, thereby halting the weeks of decline on improved positive sentiment to breakout the recent resistance level, as blue chips and mid-caps stocks recorded gains in the midst of impressive scorecards and positive market breadth. The repositioning move of market players was obvious during the week under review, as shown in the volume traded on the daily and weekly charts irrespective of the holidays.

Trading for the week opened on a positive note, which is an extension from the previous Friday’s bull session as the benchmark NGX All-Share index gained 0.12%, which was sustained on Thursday and Friday after NGX index recorded uptrends of 1.67% and 0.21% respectively. These brought total gains for the period to 1.9%, which was better than the previous week’s 0.12% loss.

Consequently, the NGXASI gained 720.72 basis points, closing at 38,667.90bps after opening at 37,947.18bps, touching an intra-week high of 38,667.90bps from its lows of 37,912.50bps on buying sentiments in high, medium, and low cap stocks. Also, market capitalization rose by N376bn closing at N20.15tr, as against the previous week’s N19.77tr, which also represented a 1.9% value gain.

Low and medium cap stocks dominated the advancers’ table during the brief trading period as usual, as more impressive corporate earnings poured in amongst portfolio repositioning ahead of the month-end and MPC meeting as investors continue to study trends and the changing environment. Price actions revealed the presence of bulls in the market, a situation that reflected on some of the sectorial indexes, four of which closed higher, while the Insurance index recorded a decline.

Also, during the week, Total Nigeria released its half-year earnings reports with an interim dividend of N4.00 on impressive numbers, just as BOC Gas and Africa Prudential also made available their half numbers. While that of BOC Gas was impressive, Africa Prudential’s financials came below market expectations.

The week’s positive outing for the few trading sessions of the week was an expectation that boosted market breadth, with gainers outnumbering losers in the ratio of 42:16 on 100% ‘buy’ volume. Money Flow Index was up, reading 59.01bps from the previous week’s 52.13 points, an indication that funds entered the market on profit-taking.

NXGASI WEEKLY CHART MOVEMENT

From the above, the NGX index action has formed a descending triangle chart pattern of consolidation on a weekly time frame, with the candlestick formation supporting an uptrend which is subject to confirmation next week to give direction, after forming a rectangle that supports a continuation of trend and reversal, ahead of more quarterly results. Already, the daily chart has confirmed an uptrend, following which all eyes are on the outcome of the week’s MPC meeting.

Bullish Sectoral Indices

Performances across sectors were bullish, except for the NGX Insurance that closed south. Activities in volume and value terms fell, as investors exchanged 816.17m shares worth N5.24bn, compared to the previous week’s 1.01bn units valued at N10.92bn, with volume driven by trades in Financial Services, Consumer goods, and Conglomerates, particularly Jaiz Bank, Sterling Bank, Fidelity Bank, and Transcrop

Cutix and Total Nigeria were the best-performing stocks for the week, after gaining 32.50% and 20.95% respectively, closing at N4.81 and N203.20per share on impressive earnings and payout. On the flip side, Smart Products and Sovereign Trust Insurance lost 38.40% and 12.12% respectively, at N0.15and N0.29 per share, purely selloffs and profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a mixed trend on more impressive numbers and outcome of MPC meeting, as market reaction to positive earnings continues in the midst of bargain hunter and discerning investors accumulate a position in dividend-paying stocks to realign their portfolio, with all eyes on MPC meeting, just as fixed income market yields are slowing down due to bearish trend in the market.

Any breakout of the recent support level that turns resistance will offer new entry opportunities for traders and investors to reposition in value-laden underpriced growth stocks, while the just-released corporate earnings have supported the recovery of low, medium, and highly-priced stocks. This is based on the fact that fixed income yields may not be enough to scare all investors away from the equity market.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer a negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in July.

WORDS TO TRADE BY

“Rule #1: Don’t lose money. Rule #2: Don’t forget Rule #1.”

― Warren Buffett

We trade so we can make money. That's really what this is about. So losing money is antithetical to our trading endeavors. Warren may sound like he's being simplistic, but he's right. The number one rule of investing is "don't lose money."

But the fact is, you will lose money. It will happen, so go ahead and prepare yourself for it. But if you can follow a trading plan that makes your wins more numerous than your losses, you'll be a winner, plain and simple. Get back to trading, put in the effort, and don't lose money!

WORDS TO TRADE BY

“The stock market is the story of cycles and of the human behavior that is responsible for overreactions in both directions.”

― Seth Klarman

Investors like to overcomplicate trading. But in all honesty, the market is just a combination of economic cycles and human psychology.
The markets react the way they do because of how humans react to news and information. It’s a collective institution that moves based on human emotion and intuition. That’s why volatility is so rampant in a market when big news, good or bad, dominates the headlines.

This tends to create a collective system of overreaction. That's why you must have a calm and focused mindset that controls your emotions when you're trading. If you fail to stay rational, the market will snatch away as much of your money as it can.

Expect Reversal, Mixed Trend, As Investors Digest MPC Outcome, Earnings Reports


Market Update for July 27

Equity prices slipped on the Nigerian Stock Exchange on Tuesday to halt five successive sessions of bull run as members of the Central Bank of Nigeria Monetary Policy Committee voted to keep the rates unchanged. Godwin Emefiele, the CBN Governor and chairman of the MPC, at the end of the meeting also announced far-reaching decisions, particularly the stopping of foreign exchange sales to Bureaux De Change operators.

Also on Tuesday, there was the expectation of more corporate earnings inflow to the market as companies rush to meet the regulatory submission deadline.

The slowdown in momentum and mixed sentiment witnessed was due to selloffs in high cap stocks and profit-taking among low-priced equities in the face of upbeat earnings already submitted. These impressive numbers emanating from listed companies are expected to support the market fundamentals and stock prices going forward.

Market players continue to digest these earnings reports while awaiting others, ahead of month-end adjustment due to portfolio rebalancing and realignments among the sectors and individual stocks with high upside potentials. We note that investors are positioning on the back of expected earnings that are likely to beat expectations and reverse the trend as more positive numbers hit the market. Examples of this scenario include Vitafoam, Livestock Feeds, and some other earnings reports that beat expectations.

Also, the market’s prevailing relative low Price-to-Earnings ratio at this peak of earnings season is a reflection of the value and growth potential of stock prices, especially as many analysts and companies are forecasting higher earnings for the Q3. This is just as these higher-than-expected earnings will make stocks cheaper, a situation that will drive prices in the short to long run. Just as in many companies, the market is trading far below 18 times of earnings.

In an environment of relatively low interest and high inflation, stocks historically, tend to move higher on earnings performance that supports high payout to enable investors to hedge against inflation.

Technically, the NGX index’s action has recently maintained an uptrend pattern to break out the second resistance level of 38,648.91 on a high traded volume after forming a double bottom heading to the third resistance line of 39,157.29 which is also a major resistance level to confirm strong upbeat and recovery. A breakout of this level will signal a new trend in Q3.

To navigate the rest of the quarter and year profitably, order Investdata’s video on How to effectively combine Fundamentals and Technical Analysis to enhance trading decisions and boost your bottom line.

Also, to up your game in stock trading and investing, understanding the key to trading price and index action will go a long way to make the difference in your trading results, check out the video materials below.

Tuesday’s trading started on the upside before pulling back on profit-taking in highly-priced equities and insurance stocks that pushed the key performance index to an intraday low of 38,794.08 basis points from its highs of 38,882.78bps, and thereafter closed below its opening figure at 38,802.15bps on flat market breadth.

Market technicals were mixed and weak, as the volume traded was slightly lower than the previous day’s, in the midst of flat breadth on negative sentiment as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiments Report showing 91% ‘sell’ volume and 9% buy position. The total transaction volume index stood at 1.04 points, just as the energy behind the day’s performance was relatively strong, as seen in the 69.45pts Money Flow Index, compared to the previous day’s 69,76pts, indicating that funds left the market on profit booking.

Index and Market Caps

At the end of Tuesday’s trading, the benchmark NGXASI, shed 46.93 basis points, closing at 38,802.15bps, from an opening level of 38,849.08bps, representing a 0.12% drop, just as market capitalization fell by N24.46bn, closing at N20.22tr, from its opening value of N20.24tr, also representing a 0.12% depreciation in value.

Attention: If you have not signed up for INVESTDATA buy and sell signal setup, don’t delay, because the number of stocks entering their buying range has just increased to 24 as they build a new bullish base and positive chart patterns to be on our watchlist. These stocks are with double potentials to rally considering their earnings prospect and oscillating mood of the market at this earnings season.

To become a member, send ‘YES’ or ‘STOCKS’ to the phone numbers below. Take advantage of this service to buy right and sell right at the current oscillating market in the midst of earnings season, portfolio reshuffling, and repositioning as we await an economic reform policy to stimulate and re-track the economy to the path of growth and development.

The session’s downturn was driven by selloffs and profit booking in stocks like MTNN, GTCO, UBA, UACN, Unilever, International Breweries, United Capital, Africa Prudential, NASCON Allied, and Cutix among others. This impacted mildly on Year-To-Date loss which rose to 3.65%, while the loss in market capitalization YTD rose to N816.06bn, representing a 3.99% drop from its opening value of the year.

Bullish Sector Indices

All the sectorial performance indexes were bullish, except for the NGX Insurance that was down by 0.03%, while the NGX Oil/Gas index led the advancers, after gaining 1.99%, followed by Banking and Consumer goods with 0.21% and 0.11% higher respectively. While Industrial goods was flat.

Market breadth was at par as gainers were equal to losers in the ratio of 20:20, while transactions in volume and value terms were down as stockbrokers traded 243.09 million worth N1.90bn compared to the previous day’s 246.56m units, valued at N2.24bn. Volume was boosted by trades in Access Bank, Wema Bank, UPDC, UACN, and UBA.

Oando and Champion Breweries were the best-performing stocks, gaining 9.86% and 9.00%, closing at N4.79 and N2.30 per share respectively on market expectation and forces. On the flip side, UPDCREIT and Unity Bank lost 6.67% and 6.45% respectively, closing at N5.60 and N0.58per share, on selloff and profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a reversal and mixed trend as the market players digests the outcome of the MPC meeting and earnings released so far, as more earnings reports hit the market in the bid to meet the regulatory deadline for submission. The improving volume suggests that smart money is taking advantage of the prevailing and relatively low prices to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues its oscillate in the international market, even as corporate actions and interim dividend possibilities are around the corner.

We note also that some stocks are trading within their buy ranges to become more attractive at this point for income investors and traders, even as the market anticipates positive news, while oil price continues to oscillate above $69pb to support global economic and stock market recovery across climates. We also expect the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination to support the global and domestic economic recovery that will enhance the market and give direction.

The banking sector and others remain attractive on the back of the prevailing low prices, despite the Q1 mixed numbers.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer a negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in the coming week.

Caution, NGXASI Pulls Back Amidst Earnings Season Peak, As Investors Study 2021H1 Numbers, Devts


Market Update for July 28

The nation’s stock market had a mixed and very volatile session at the midweek, thereby extending the negative outing for the second consecutive day after recording a marginal decline as investors digest likely impacts of the Monetary Policy Committee meeting’s outcomes. Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and chairman of the MPC announced on Tuesday after the two-day meeting its decision to discontinue the weekly sale of to Bureax De Change operators. Were the apex bank to sell about US$110.1m at between US$5,500 to US$20,000 each BDC weekly, it will amount to US$5,72bn yearly.

The decision to stop FX sales to BDCs really makes the license less attractive and creates tighter FX liquidity in the parallel market, especially as I doubt whether the banks can really meet the demand of BDC clients, most of whom do not meet relevant CBN criteria, which banks would adhere to. Hence, this decision may further widen the spread between official and parallel market rates for FX. Even so, I think it is exigent to stop the rent-seeking and arbitrage of BDCs, who buy FX from CBN at N410, only to sell at N504.

The approach of the CBN in managing the transition will determine the ultimate impact of this decision on the economy, even as we have seen the expected knee-jack reaction in the parallel market, with a rally of USD towards N520. Investdata notes that although the recent announcement does not provide full clarity of the CBN’s approach, this move is, however, a plus for the banks in terms of improved performance and profitability.

Wednesday’s mild decline happened at the peak of earnings reporting season that had been characterized by positive scorecards, on a day when sellers had the upper hand as traders took profit from the financial sector. It was also on a day when the share prices of first-tier banking stocks recorded pullbacks ahead of their half-year earnings reports. We are seeing more companies rushing to meet the regulatory submission timeframe, and expect that market volatility will continue.

The slowdown in momentum at the end of midweek’s trading and the divergence between the NGX index action and indicators are somewhat, although it thus suggests that this profit-taking may not endure. This is because the earnings inflow remains robust enough to support market fundamentals and stock prices, going forward.

Also, the market’s prevailing relative low Price-to-Earnings ratio at this peak of earnings season is a reflection of the value and growth potential of stock prices, especially as many analysts and companies are forecasting higher earnings for Q3. These higher-than-expected earnings will make stocks cheaper, a situation that will drive prices up in the short to long run, even as in many companies, the market is trading far below 18 times of earnings.

In an environment of relatively low interest and high inflation rates, stocks historically tend to move higher on earnings performance that supports high payouts, allowing investors to hedge against soaring prices.

Meanwhile, midweek trading opened on the upside and sustained till late afternoon before pulling back on profit-taking in banking and insurance stocks that pushed NGX index to an intraday low of 38,788.73 basis points from its highs of 38,829.61bps, and thereafter closed below its opening figure at 38,791.03bps on less than average traded volume.

Market technicals were negative and weak on Wednesday, amidst the lower volume traded than the previous day’s, in the midst of negative breadth and selling sentiment as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiments Report showing 94% ‘sell’ volume and 6% buy positions. The total transaction volume index stood at 1.02 points, just as momentum behind the day’s performance was relatively strong, as seen in the 61.95pts Money Flow Index, compared to the previous day’s 69.45pts, indicating that funds left the market on profit booking.

Index and Market Caps

The composite NGXASI, at the end of the day trading, declined slightly by 11.12 basis points, closing at 38,781.03bps, from an opening level of 38,802.15bps, representing a 0.02% drop, just as market capitalization fell by N5.79bn, closing at N20.22tr, from its opening value of N20.22tr, also representing a 0.02% value loss.

Attention: If you have not signed up for INVESTDATA’s buy and sell signal setup, don’t delay, because the number of stocks entering their buying range has just increased to 24 as they build a new bullish base and positive chart patterns to be on our watchlist.

Take advantage of this service to buy right and sell right at the current oscillating market in the midst of earnings season, portfolio reshuffling, and repositioning as we await an economic reform policy to stimulate and re-track the economy to the path of growth and development.

Midweek’s downturn was attributed to profit-taking in stocks like GTCO, Zenith Bank, Access Bank, UBA, Fidelity Bank, FBNH, FCMB, UACN, United Capital, Eterna, CHI Plc and Regency Insurance among others. This impacted mildly on Year-To-Date loss which inched marginally to 3.67%, while the loss in market capitalization YTD rose to N846.07bn, representing a 4.01% drop from its opening value for the year.

Mixed Sector Indices

Performance indexes across sectors were mixed, as the NGX Banking and Insurance were down by 0.96% and 0.88% respectively, while NGX Oil/Gas index led the advancers, after gaining 1.68%, followed by Consumer goods with 0.11%.

Market breadth turned negative as losers outnumbered gainers in the ratio of 24:18, while activities in volume and value terms dropped while players traded 237.51m worth N1.88bn, compared to the previous day’s 243.09m units, valued at N1.9bn. Volume was boosted by trades in Oando, UBA, Wema Bank, Access Bank, and Jaiz Bank.

Capital Hotel and Oando were the best-performing stocks, gaining 9.85% and 9.81%, while closing at N2.90 and N5.26 per share respectively on market sentiment and forces, as some investors took profit in Oando Plc, offering opportunities for new entrants after days of scarcity. On the flip side, CHI Plc and Tripple Gee lost 10% each, closing at N0.54 and N0.90 per share, on profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a reversal and a mixed trend at the peak of earnings season, as investors study emerging numbers so far and development in the FX market, while more earnings reports hit the market. The improvement in volume suggests that smart money is taking advantage of the pullbacks and relatively low prices to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues its oscillate in the international market, even as corporate actions and interim dividend possibilities are around the corner.

We note also that some stocks are trading within their buy ranges to become more attractive at this point for income investors and traders, even as the market anticipates positive news, while oil price continues to oscillate above $69pb to support global economic and stock market recovery across climates. We also expect the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination to support global and domestic economic recovery that will enhance the market and give direction.

The banking sector and others remain attractive on the back of the prevailing low prices, despite the Q1 mixed numbers.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer a negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in the coming week.

NGX Index Slips Lower On FX Market Concerns, Amidst H1 Earnings Influx


Market Update for July 29

The benchmark Nigerian Exchange All-Share Index slipped further on Thursday as stock prices suffered losses on profit-taking and shake out of many from their earlier positions to panic selloffs at the peak of quarterly earnings reporting season, as investors started to factor in the effects of the recent decision of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on the foreign exchange market, especially a further devaluation of the Naira.

The decline was despite, the influx of half-year corporate earnings to meet the statutory deadline for the submission of their reports.

The numbers so far released by the various companies revealed a mixed performance as some came below market expectations, especially FCMB Group, UACN, and Union Bank of Nigeria, while those of Honeywell, Lafarge Africa, Transcorp Plc, BUA Cement, Caverton, and NPF Microfinance were upbeat to sustain the uptrend that should give retail and institutional investors, whether foreign or domestic, insights into the value and growth potentials of the market as the season gradually comes to a close.

The pullbacks due to profit booking and selloffs by traders in the midst of earnings season are creating buy opportunities for discerning investors and traders, while they continue interpreting and digesting the emergent numbers, amidst portfolio realignment for the rest of the quarter and year in the new month of August. Low-priced stocks remain attractive to retail investors, even as numbers emanating from them remain impressive and likely to support their share prices, going into the future.

The anticipated fall in the nation’s currency has triggered panic in the market and economy at large, as expected, after the CBN Monetary Policy Committee decision to ban BDCs, followed by the apex bank’s announcement that those who paid the prescribed fees for licences that are pending should apply for a refund. The nation’s deposit money banks have been directed to put mechanisms in place for US Dollar sales to customers in their respective banks. Companies that have their source of raw material within, and those that have less imported material in their production process are likely to sustain their positive performance in the face of the impending Naira devaluation in the back market.

The candlestick formation pattern at the end of Thursday trading and the mixed sentiment in the face of a change in trend as the NGX index action and indicators are looking down, suggesting that this profit-taking may not endure. This is because the earnings inflow remains robust enough to support market fundamentals and stock prices, going forward.

Also, the market’s prevailing relative low Price-to-Earnings ratio at this peak of earnings season is a reflection of the value and growth potential of stock prices, especially as many analysts and companies are forecasting higher earnings for Q3. These higher-than-expected earnings will make stocks cheaper, a situation that will drive prices up in the short to long run, even as in many companies, the market is trading far below 18 times of earnings.

Also, to up your game in stock trading and investing, understanding the key to trading price and index action will go a long way to make the difference in your trading results, check out the video materials below.

Thursday trading started on the downside and it was sustained till early afternoon before oscillating on bargain hunters taking advantage of the correction to positioning in mid-cap stocks with strong Q2 numbers. Meanwhile, the continued selloffs in blue chips stocks pushed the NGX index to an intraday low of 38,356.43 basis points from its highs of 38,791.03bps, and thereafter closed below its opening figure at 38,484.82bps on a high traded volume.

Market technicals were negative as the volume traded was higher than the previous day’s, in the midst of breadth favouring the bears and mixed sentiment as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiments Report showing 70% ‘sell’ volume and 30% buy positions. The total transaction volume index stood at 1.12 points, just as momentum behind the day’s performance was relatively strong, as seen in the 53.78pts Money Flow Index, compared to the previous day’s 61.96pts, indicating that funds left the market on profit booking.

Index and Market Caps

At the end of Thursday’s trading, the composite NGXASI declined sharply by 306.21 basis points, closing at 38,484.82bps, from an opening level of 38,781.03bps, representing a 0.78% drop, just as market capitalization fell by N159.54bn, closing at N20.05tr, from its opening value of N20.22tr, also representing a 0.78% depreciation in value.

Attention: If you have not signed up for INVESTDATA’s buy and sell signal setup, don’t delay, because the number of stocks entering their buying range has just increased to 24 as they build a new bullish base and positive chart patterns to be on our watchlist. These stocks have double potentials to rally, considering their earnings prospect and the oscillating mood of the market at this time.

To become a member, send ‘YES’ or ‘STOCKS’ to the phone numbers below. Take advantage of this service to buy right and sell right at the current oscillating market in the midst of earnings season, portfolio reshuffling, and repositioning as we await an economic reform policy to stimulate and re-track the economy to the path of growth and development.

The day’s downtrend was attributed to profit-taking and selloffs in blue chips stocks like BUA Cement, GTCO, Zenith Bank, Access Bank, UBA, Fidelity Bank, FBNH, FCMB, UACN, Flour Mills, Unilever Nigeria, UBN, United Capital, NASCON Allied, Honeywell Flour and Oando, among others. This impacted negatively on Year-To-Date loss, increasing it to 4.43%, while the loss in market capitalization YTD rose to N993.89bn, representing a 4.79% drop from its opening value for the year.

Bearish Sector Indices

Performance indexes across sectors were bearish, except for NGX Insurance that was 3.24% up, while NGX Industrial Goods index led the decliners, after shedding 2.02%, followed by Energy, Banking, and consumer goods with 1.83%. 0.81% and 0.35% lower respectively.

Market breadth remained negative as losers outnumbered gainers in the ratio of 22:17, while transactions in volume and value terms increased as stockbrokers traded 259.97m worth N1.98bn, compared to the previous day’s 237.51m units, valued at N1.88bn. Volume was boosted by trades in Oando, GTCO, Jaiz Bank, Fidelity Bank, and Wema Bank.

Tripple Gee and Regency Insurance were the best-performing stocks, gaining 10% and 9.75%, closing at N0.99 and N0.45 per share respectively on market sentiment and earnings expectation. On the flip side, Oando and UACN lost 9.70% and 8.93% respectively, closing at N4.75 and N10.20per share, on profit-taking as some traders cash out gains in Oando Plc, offering opportunities for new entrants after days of scarcity and unimpressive half-year earnings from UACN, .

Market Outlook

We expect a mixed trend as influx of earnings continues on Friday, the last filing date for quarterly earnings reports of companies with December and March year-ends, just as investors also continue to study emerging numbers so far and development in the FX market, while more earnings reports hit the market. The improvement in volume suggests that smart money is taking advantage of the pullbacks and relatively low prices to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues its oscillation in the international market, even as corporate actions and interim dividend possibilities are around the corner.

We note also that some stocks are trading within their buy ranges to become more attractive at this point for income investors and traders, even as the market anticipates positive news, while oil price continues to oscillate above $69pb to support global economic and stock market recovery across climates. We also expect the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination to support the global and domestic economic recovery that will enhance the market and give direction.

The banking sector and others remain attractive on the back of the prevailing low prices, despite the Q1 mixed numbers.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement. This is especially given that despite the seeming improvements, fixed income yield continues to offer a negative real rate of return due to the galloping inflation.

However, the strong and faster recovery may continue, depending on market forces, going forward, as propelled by expected Q2 earnings reports, until the next MPC meeting in the coming week.
