Zenith Bank CEO Seeks Increased Impact Investment For Africa At Global Summit


The Group Managing Director/Chief Executive of Zenith Bank, Ebenezer Onyeagwu, at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom, on Friday, July 30, 2021, called for increased impact investing in Africa that will enable Africa to attain its full potential.

In a keynote at the Africa Investment Risk & Compliance Summit 2021 organised by the Emerging Business Intelligence & Innovation (EBII) Group, Onyeagwu who spoke on the theme: “Leveraging Impact Investment Opportunities for Growth in Africa”, described impact investing as an investment that yields optimal returns for investors, value for all stakeholders, and guarantees continued sustenance and existence of humanity.

He decried the shallowness of Africa’s financial market as depicted by the fact that no African exchange is among the Morgan Stanley developed markets index, only two African exchanges (Egypt and South Africa) are in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, and just six African exchanges are in the MSCI Frontier Market Index.

The Zenith Bank boss noted that although the International Finance Corporation (IFC) estimates that the global investors’ appetite for impact investing could total as much as $26 trillion, only approximately 8% of the assets of impact intent funds are focused on Africa. According to him, this is not significant enough, and Africa appears to be in the room but not on the table, considering that Africa is in dire need of investment and the continent’s 1.3bn people represent about 17% of the global population of about 7.8bn.

Citing the immense opportunities in Africa that represent enormous investment proposition for discerning investors, including the huge population, large market and active labour force, and the rich natural endowment, Onyeagwu described Africa as “the new frontier” for global growth.

He made a case for increased impact investment in Africa, noting that investment opportunities on the continent cut across agriculture, healthcare, housing, infrastructure, electricity, and the creative sectors.

Onyeagwu exuded immense optimism on the coming into effect of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) initiative, which would create a single, continent-wide market for goods and services, business and investment as being in one country on the continent grants investors access to the entire continent. He

Onyeagwu also called attention to Africa’s rich natural endowment, including the fact that it comprises 60% of the world’s uncultivated arable land and 9% of the world’s freshwater bodies, noting that Africa holds enormous potential for organic food production.

He, therefore, implored investors in the agribusiness value chain to focus attention in Africa for organic food production instead of genetically modified food in other climes.

Onyeagwu also noted that as a socially responsible organisation, Zenith Bank continues to promote impact investment in Africa.

For example, the bank has maintained strong advocacy for investment in Africa through its flagship sponsorship of “Inside Africa” on CNN for 16 consecutive years, which is helping to highlight the immense creativity and talent that abound on the continent and the enormous investment opportunities on the continent of Africa. He also said that the bank leverages its in-depth knowledge of the African market to guide investors and hedge their exposures. According to him, the bank has been on a steady Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) investment journey, which started with ESG integration as a business strategy as well as being a signatory to the Nigerian Principles for Sustainable Banking and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) Principles for Responsible Banking. For its efforts, Onyeagwu noted that Zenith Bank received recognition as the “Best Company in Promotion of Gender Equality and Women Empowerment in Africa” at the 2020 Sustainability, Enterprise and Responsibility Awards (SERAS).

Onyeagwu called for a paradigm shift, noting that Africa is a work in progress, and leaders in the public and private sector should not despair. He encouraged leaders to champion the changes they want to see, pay close attention to responsibility and accountability in leadership. He also called for the de-risking of Africa through reforms, improved ease of doing business, respect for the rule of law and sanctity of contract, and human capital development. Onyeagwu expressed satisfaction with the several reforms of the Federal Government of Nigeria, including the Road Infrastructure Tax Credit Scheme (RITC), the establishment of the Rural Electrification Agency’s (REA) Rural Electrification Fund (REF), InfracoPlc, and several other development finance initiatives of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

He also noted that several African countries, including Ghana, Kenya, and Rwanda, are recording massive improvements in the ease of doing business, leveraging digital technology to simplify government processes and deepen the financial system.

He implored Africans to see themselves as brothers and sisters, say no to xenophobia, and speak with one voice and not with discordant tunes. Onyeagwu implored the rest of the world to look at Africa as an investment destination that guarantees optimal returns. He noted that Africa has profound talent that abounds across the world and contributes to the development of these climes, and this should be reciprocated. He encouraged Africans to imbibe the spirit of UBUNTU – “I AM BECAUSE YOU ARE,” since we are all connected in humanity.

Zenith Bank is Nigeria’s largest and one of Africa’s largest financial institutions by tier-1 capital, with shareholders’ funds in excess of NGN1.1 trillion ($2.64 billion) as at December 31, 2020. The bank is a clear leader in the Nigerian financial space, with several firsts in the deployment of innovative products and solutions that ensure convenience, speed and safety of transactions.

Onyeagwu spoke after the special keynote address by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana, who was the Special Guest, and Dr. Amani ABOU-ZEID, The African Union Commissioner in charge of Infrastructure and Energy, also delivered a keynote address at the Summit.

The Emerging Business Intelligence & Innovation (EBII) Group is an independent specialist compliance and global risk management consultancy firm offering education and expert consulting services to entities in the West seeking opportunities for diversification and growth in emerging markets and Africa. The Group supports African entities and governments with their risk management and compliance requirements and delivers practical and genuine support to firms by providing a comprehensive and relevant assessment of risks, enabling them to successfully navigate their risks and ensure adherence to their compliance requirements.

NGX Resists Decline Amidst Expectation Of Earnings From Interim Div Stocks


Market Update for August 2

Nigerian equities inched up on a mixed and volatile session to start the month of August on a positive outing and solid note as the last resistance of the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) All-Share index finally became a support level as NGX index action amidst continued uptrend for the second consecutive trading day on a less than average traded volume and negative breadth.

Even so, investors and analysts continue to study and digest the recent corporate earnings to reposition their portfolios along sectors and stocks that have posted impressive and surprising numbers. Also, these are stocks with the most upside potential on the strength of their earnings power and technical position of price action and chart pattern, a situation expected to trigger buying interests, positive sentiment, momentum, and liquidity. There are also expectations for the half-year earnings reports of interim dividend-paying banking stocks before the end of this month.

Monday’s Money Flow index on a daily chart had reversed up from 51.49p on Friday to 58.39 points to indicate that funds are still entering the market, just as other indicators have revealed a bullish session. In addition to the expectation of more interim dividends this month, there will be the inflow of economic data such as the July Purchasing Managers’ Index, Inflation report for July, and Q2 GDP from the National Bureau of Statistics that would reveal the true state of the economy.

Technically, the NGX Index and some individual stock price actions are resisting decline at different time-frames, while some sectors have broken out their resistance level on positive sentiments and impressive earnings. But due to the dicey outlook and performance of August as revealed by the 10-year historical trend of the NGX with eight years of down market and two up. This is a month to watch and trade with a reduced profit target to manage our trades and positions.

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.

Meanwhile, Monday’s trading opened on the upside which was sustained throughout, despite oscillating on bargain hunters taking advantage of low prices in banking stocks ahead of first-tier bank results. Whereas profit-taking continued in other stocks and sectors, a situation that pushed the benchmark index to an intraday high of 38,658.71 basis points from its lows of 38,532.78bps, before closing above its opening level at 38,604.72bps.

Market technicals were mixed and weak, while volume traded was lower than the previous day’s, in the midst of breadth favouring the bears and mixed sentiment as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiments Report showing 43% ‘sell’ volume and 56% buy positions. The total transaction volume index stood at 1.03 points, just as the impetus behind the day’s performance was relatively strong, as seen in the 58.39pts Money Flow Index, compared to the previous day’s 51.49pts, indicating inflow of funds into the market as corporate earnings beat expectation.

Index and Market Caps

At the end of Monday’s trading, the composite NGXASI gained 57.64 basis points, closing at 38,604.72bps, from an opening level of 38,547.08bps, representing a 0.16% up, just as market capitalization rose by N50.03bn, closing at N20.05tr, from its opening value of N20.13tr, also representing a 0.16% value gain.

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.

Monday’s uptrend was attributed to position taking in banking equities and high cap stocks like MTNN, Julius Berger, Zenith Bank, Access Bank, FBNH, Unilever Nigeria, Econbank Transnational Incorporated, NASCON Allied, and Regency Insurance, among others. This impacted mildly on Year-To-Date loss, reducing it to 4.14%, while the loss in market capitalization YTD dropped to N898.34bn, representing a 4.36% drop from its opening value for the year.

Bearish Sector Indices

Performance indexes across sectors were bearish, except for the NGX Banking that was up by 0.02%, while NGX Oil/Gas index led the decliners, after losing 0.63%, followed by Consumer goods, Industrial goods, and Insurance with 0.43%. 0.30% and 0.25% lower respectively.

Market breadth remained negative as losers outnumbered gainers in the ratio of 26:17, while activities in volume and value terms dropped as traders exchanged 244.29m shares worth N1.91bn, compared to the previous day’s 387.13m units, valued at N2.14bn. Volume was boosted by trades in Transcorp, C & I Leasing, FCMB, Oando, and Sovereign Trust Insurance.

Julius Berger and NPF Microfinance were the best-performing stocks, gaining 8.89% and 8%, while closing at N24.50 and N1.89 per share respectively on brighter prospects for construction and building business and earnings expectations. On the flip side, Eterna and Neimeth Pharm lost 10% and 9.71% respectively, closing at N6.39 and N1.58per share, on profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a mixed trend while portfolio reshuffling continued as market players study and digest the corporate earnings ahead of major banks results in the face of recent developments in the FX market following the Central Bank of Nigeria’s stopping sale of US$ to Bureaux De Change operators access. The mixed volume suggests that smart money is taking advantage of the oscillating trend and relatively low prices to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues its oscillating 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 $70pb 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 mixed half year earnings.

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.

WORDS TO TRADE BY

“Don't look for the needle in the haystack. Just buy the haystack!”

― John Bogle

Trying to find the next big trading opportunity can be frustrating. That's why some traders opt to buy the whole haystack instead of searching for the needle. To do that with the market, you can invest in index funds. Index funds allow you to buy small slices of all sorts of sectors, businesses, and markets, all in one fund.
This strategy will enable you to cover all your bases at once. So, find a few industries you've become knowledgeable in and invest in a corresponding index fund. But keep an eye on it because if one sector suddenly reverses, it can impact the overall fund.

NGX Index Rebounds, Amid Mixed Trend, Reshuffling, Caution, Interim Dividend Expectation


Market Update for August 3

It was a mixed session on Nigerian Exchange Tuesday as buying interests in telecommunication stocks continued, as investors digest corporate earnings released so far, which impacted positively on the NGX index action, while awaiting those of dividend-paying banks, ahead of macroeconomic reports. The index action broke out the recent resistance level on a low traded volume, extending the market uptrend for the third successive trading session despite the negative breadth. As a result, this breakout is something the market would confirm at midweek’s trading before jumping fully into position amid lingering sector rotation and portfolio rebalancing on the higher than expected earnings reports.

It was a mixed trading session on Tuesday as highly capitalised stocks pushed the market up with more sellers and sectorial indexes were down, reflecting sustained profit-taking activities. Also noteworthy is the fact that the market indicators are signalling the onset of a new trend and entrance of funds into the market at this point. We, therefore, advise traders to trade with caution on Wednesday as we look to confirm the recent breakout, while investors should continue to study the numbers and position accordingly.

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, checkout the video materials below.

Tuesday’s trading started on the upside and it was sustained for the rest of the session, on position-taking among the high and low priced stocks, a situation that pushed the NGX index to an intraday high of 38,927.75 basis points from its lows of 38,604.72bps, before closing above its opening level at 38,917.99bps.

Market technicals were mixed and weak, while volume traded was lower than that of the previous day, in the midst of negative breadth and buying sentiments as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiments Report showing 97% ‘buy’ volume and 3% sell positions. Total transaction volume index stood at 0.97 points, just as energy behind the day’s performance was relatively strong, as seen in the 64.15pts Money Flow Index, compared to previous day’s 58.39pts, confirming the inflow of funds into the market as corporate earnings beat expectation.

Index and Market Caps

The benchmark NGXASI, at t the end of the day, gained 313.27 basis points, closing at 38,917.99bps, from an opening level of 38,604.72bps, representing a 0.81% growth, just as market capitalization rose by N163.22bn, closing at N20.28tr, from its opening value of N20.13tr, also representing a 0.81% appreciation 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.

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 upturn was driven by price appreciation by high cap telco giants- Airtel and MTNN, as well as Unilever Nigeria, and Guinness, among others, which impacted positively on Year-To-Date loss, reducing it to 3.36%, while the loss in market capitalization YTD dropped to N779.92bn, representing a 3.67% drop from its opening value for the year.

Bearish Sector Indices

Performance indexes across sectors were bearish, except for the NGX Industrial goods that was flat, while NGX Insurance index led the decliners, after losing 0.97%, followed by Banking, Consumer Goods and Oil/Gas with 0.81%, 0.26% and 0.24% respectively.

Market breadth remained negative as losers outnumbered gainers in the ratio of 21:12, while transactions in volume and value terms were mixed as stockbrokers traded 231.45m shares worth N2.13bn, compared to the previous day’s 244.29m units, valued at N1.91bn. Volume was boosted by trades in Transcorp, Jaiz Bank, Honeywell Flour, Wema Bank, and Mutual Benefits Assurance.

Also, Wema Bank and UPDC were the best-performing stocks, gaining 5.95% and 5.93%, while closing at N0.89 and N1.25 per share respectively on market forces. On the flip side, FTN Cocoa and Honeywell Flour lost 8.16% and 7.78% respectively, closing at N0.45 and N1.54 per share, on profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect a mixed trend while portfolio reshuffling continued as market players study and digest the corporate earnings ahead of the results expected from dividend-paying banking stocks. This is as investors continue to observe the interplay of forces following recent developments in the FX market following the Central Bank of Nigeria’s decision to stop the sale of US$ to Bureaux De Change operators. The day’s mixed volume suggests that smart money is taking advantage of the oscillating trend and relatively low prices to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues to 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 $70pb 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 mixed half-year earnings.

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 Begins August Positive On Sector Rotation, Despite Dicey, Mixed Outlook


Market Update for the Week Ended August 6 and Outlook for August 9-13

Nigeria’s equity market rebounded last week amidst continued portfolio repositioning and sector rotation as market players interpret recent corporate earnings to enable investment decision making. The mixed sentiment is ahead of macroeconomic data, as investors await the release of interim dividend paying banks results.

The week was characterized by activities of bargain hunter, despite Thursday’s seeming profit booking and pullback that reversed up on rekindled buyinginterests in high cap stocks and blue chips companies on the following day.

With half-year earnings beating expectations, investors remain upbeat, armed with insights into what the nation’s Q2 GDP number would look like, helped by the recently published Purchasing Managers’ Index which hit 55.4 points for the first time in 18 months in July, from 53.8 points in June according to a report by Stanbic IBTC Research. Consequently, we expect the market to continue its oscillation and volatility as investors react to these data as they realign their portfolios for profitable trading in the month and quarter, due to the changing price patterns and trading environment.

These notwithstanding, as discerning investors and traders, you should take advantage of the sectorial performance as revealed by the recent scorecards to adjust your position by selling off and buying back, depending on how demand and supply dynamics play out. So far, the most outstanding sectors, in terms of the half-year earnings performance are: Agribusiness, Industrial Goods, Healthcare, Energy, Consumer Good, Banking and Services. This is a function of demand and supply, sentiments, and earnings which are the engines that drive prices in the short to long-run.

Technical View of A Weekly Chart


Despite the mixed trends, some stocks have recorded huge gains year-to-date and most of those on the Investdata “buy & sell” signal setup, and those who attended the Q3 Master Class have benefited from the July recovery. For them, the month was really as a very rewarding one. In any equity market across the globe, superior fundamentals define leading stocks and earnings rebound has great influence on the share prices of companies, especially when positive earnings uptrend are sustained or established. Also, technically, the best of stocks distinguish themselves by their sound base chart patterns.

Profit-taking is inevitable in stock trading, and doing so at between 12% and 15%, rather than the normal 20% to 25% may be a useful strategy in the second-half of this year to avoid being trapped in any position for too long. In the next six months, the small and medium cap stocks are set to outperform their high and large cap peers, especially given that most of the high priced stocks are overpriced and over-weighted already.

As every investment or trade is against expectations, let your investment objectives guild your entry and exit decisions, since the beginning of the year 2021 the equity market has been oscillating due to a factor like the high inflation. This is regardless of the fact that it has been slowing down over the last two months, in addition to others such as the rising yields in the fixed income space, recovering oil price in the international market as above $68 per barrel.

While investors continue to watch effects of recent changes in the foreign exchange market policy announced by the Central Bank of Nigeria, the IMF has approved of $650bn in Special Drawing Rights (SDR, of which $3.4bn could be earmarked for the country based on its quota contribution and economic standing.

The SDRs are not actual currencies but assets through which IMF members can improve their balance of payment positions by exchanging all or some of their allocations for freely usable currencies of other member countries. They can also be used as a basis for seeking concessionary debt facilities from the IMF. However, given lessons from the previous year, we favour refraining from utilising our SDR allocation until a rainy day. Consequently, given the elevated oil prices and the increasing likelihood of a successful Eurobond issuance, we do not think that Nigeria is in such a dire situation to warrant a full SDR drawdown.

In assessing the materiality of the recent developments, we note that the combined planned foreign borrowing of $6.2 billion and SDR allocation of $3.4 billion amount to c.68.1% of our 2021 current account deficit forecast and 28.7% of Nigeria’s FX reserves of c.$33.5bn. Thus, there is a strong likelihood that the FX liquidity position of Nigeria will improve before the end of the year if these inflows materialise.

We highlight some of the potential impacts of the expected reserve accretion on markets below:

The spread between the parallel market and the I&E rates is likely to materially narrow in the coming months. This narrowing spread should primarily reflect sharper corrections in the parallel market rate, which is currently substantially higher than our fundamentally derived NGN/USD rate. We also expect some retail demand to flow away from the BDCs to deposit money banks, which have been recently mandated to meet legitimate dollar needs
The need for an aggressive mop-up of banking system liquidity will likely taper on projected improvement in the near-term FX liquidity position
As a consequence of points 1) and 2), we expect yields to remain near current levels until Q4’21, when the fiscal authority may have to increase issuances ahead of the N593.9 billion bond maturity in January 2022. The apex bank may also be cautious ahead of the pre-election year 2022. These, and the opportunities to earn better returns on bank placements, continue to support a short-duration strategy.
The expected improvement in FX liquidity could provide some support for equity prices. Therefore, improvements in FX conditions could positively impact sectors such as manufacturing, as FX-induced inflationary worries subside and pressures on real consumer income taper. More so, companies that rely heavily on imported raw materials or require FX for routine plant maintenances may get some reprieve.

Movement Of NSEASI

It was a positive outing on the Nigerian Exchange with the composite index recording four trading sessions of up markets and one down, halting previous week’s bear position on renewed buying interests amidst sector rotation and portfolio rebalancing.

NGX index action opened the week on a positive note, extending the previous Friday’s bull session as the benchmark NGX All-Share index gained 0.09%, which was sustained till midweek after gaining 0.81% and 0.03% respectively. It however gave up on Thursday when the key performance index pulled back on profit taking, losing 0.31% and then rebounding on Friday with the NGX index inching 0.03% again. These brought total gains for the week to 0.68%, wiping out previous week’s 0.31% loss.

Consequently, the benchmark index gained 263.67basis points, closing at 38,810.75 basis points after opening at 38,547.08bps, touching an intra-week high of 38,950.74bps from its lows of 38,532.78bps on mixed sentiments and position taking in high, medium and low cap stocks. Also, market capitalization rose by N137bn, closing at N20.22tr, compared to previous week’s N20.08tr, which also represented a 0.68% value gain.

Low and medium cap stocks dominated the advancers’ table during the period as usual, as investors continue to study corporate numbers, trend and the changing environment. Price actions revealed the presence of buyers in the market, a situation that does not reflect on the sectorial indexes. Also, during the week, Meyer Plc and Consolidated Hallmark Insurance announced interim dividend of N1.50 and two kobo respectively.

The bullish market for week did not reflect on market breadth, with losers outnumbering gainers in the ratio of 36:23, but on the sentiment report for the period which was 67% buy volume and 33% sell position. Money Flow Index was up, reading 57.03bps from the previous week’s 59.01 points, an indication that funds left the market.

NSEASI WEEKLY CHART MOVEMENT

From the opening chart, the NGX index action has formed a rectangle chart pattern of consolidation on a weekly time frame, with the candlestick formation indicating that buyers are still in charge but we need a confirmation next week to give direction, after forming a rectangle that supports a continuation of trend and reversal, after the just conclude earnings season. Already, the daily chart has confirmed indecision among traders.

Bearish Sectoral Indices

Performance across sectors were bearish, led by NGX Insurance that closed south which lost 1.65%, followed by Oil/Gas, Banking, Consumer and Industrial goods with 0.61%, 0.58%, 0.48% and 0.48% lower respectively. Activities in volume and value terms fell, as investors exchanged 989.59m shares worth N8.18bn, compared to previous week’s 1.4bn units valued at N11.82bn, with volume driven by trades in Financial Services, Conglomerates and Consumer goods, particularly Transcorp, Sterling Bank, FBNH, Zenith Bank and Wema Bank

Cutix and Regency Assurance were the best performing stocks for the week, after gaining 17.95% and 14.29% respectively, closing at N5.65 and N0.48 per share on good payout and market forces. On the flip side, Neimeth Pharm and AIICO Insurance lost 14.29% and 12.04% respectively, at N1.50 and N0.92per share, purely selloffs.

Outlook for August

On the strength of these earnings power and quality of numbers released so far, we expect to see a mixed market this week and for the rest of the month. Considering that the March accounts and half-year interim dividend qualification dates for most companies are within this month. So there will be activities as investors participate in the interim dividend. So, let us keep our eyes on market breadth and direction.

NGX: Mixed Ahead, As Investors Go Defensive, Smart Money Position On Oscillation


Market Update for August 10

The nation’s equity market rebounded powerfully on Tuesday on the strength of investors’ buying interest in telecommunication and energy stocks amid the continued portfolio reshuffling and sectoral rotation ahead of the release of macroeconomic data like the July Consumer Price Index and Q2 GDP numbers. There is also the expected release of corporate earnings of interim dividend-paying banks: Zenith Bank, Access Bank, UBA, GTCO, and Stanbic IBTC.

Also on Tuesday, the NGX index joined counterparts across the globe to close higher on positive sentiments to reverse the previous negative outing, seemingly putting aside fears of the fast raging Delta Variant of the Coronavirus. The spread of the virus had slowed down as oil prices rebounded also in the international markets after a sharp decline on Monday due to increased cases of new infections and fear of future demand for the commodity.

Back in Nigeria, we recall that the half-year earnings season beat the market and analysts’ expectations to strengthen the market and company’s fundamentals that will help influence share prices in the short and long run. These numbers have given players an insight into how to invest or trade as sector rotation and portfolio repositioning persist, even as we warn ahead that good stocks in bad sectors will suffer setbacks in the ongoing repositioning by investors.

Except for the banks awaiting the Central Bank of Nigeria’s approval of their half-year earnings, the results so far published are impressive and better than expected, with most companies outperforming the numbers they released in the comparative period of 2020. These scorecards have a way of impacting the share prices of stocks as we saw in the Oil/Gas sector when Total and Conoil, among others, released their results and their share prices rose for three or four trading sessions. We also note that earnings from other sectors like building materials, telecommunication, construction, Healthcare, and services, while that of the banking industry came mixed while insurance was below market forecast and expectation. This is linked to the change in the sector’s valuation, considering the bearish trend in the bond market as yield continues to recover.

Technically, the NGX index action is set to break out a strong resistance level of 39,210.10 basis points and a bullish channel on a new uptrend with high traded volume as of the close of trading on Tuesday. This was after it formed a saucer chart pattern that supports a continuation of the trend, which we need to confirm as the market opens for the midweek’s trading because correction is possible at this point or level. Below is the daily chart:


Meanwhile, Tuesday’s trading opened on the upside in the morning and was sustained throughout the session on buying interests in high and medium cap stocks that pushed the composite All-Share index to an intraday high of 39,198.50bps, from its lows of 38,544.57bps, after which it closed above the opening level at 39, 176.62bps on slightly positive market breadth.

Market technicals were positive and strong as volume traded was higher than that of the previous sessions in the midst of breadth that favours the bulls on strong buying sentiments as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiment Report showing 97% ‘buy’ volume and 3% ‘sell’ position. Total transaction volume index stood at 0.95 points, just as the energy behind the day’s performance remained relatively strong as Money Flow Index read 56.93 points, from the previous day’s 59.77 points, an indication that funds left the market, despite closing higher.

Despite, the change in the market trends, players should keep their gaze on companies with strong earnings power that will support their future prices. Growth and value stocks should be the attraction in the market now, considering the strength of the numbers emanating from those companies and what is happening in the FX market, because some companies are net beneficiaries of the CBN’s policy stopping the sale of foreign exchange to Bureaux De Change operators.

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.

Index and Market Caps

The key performance NGXASI, at the end of the day’s trading, gained a significant 609.36bps, closing at 39,176.62bps, from an opening level of 38,567.26bps, representing a 1.58% growth, just as market capitalization rose sharply by N318bn at N20.41tr, from its opening value of N20.09tr, also representing a 1.58% value gain.

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.

Tuesday’s upturn was driven by price appreciations in high and medium cap stocks like Airtel Africa, MTNN, Access Bank, NNFM, Honeywell, Ecobank Transnational Incorporated, Oando, Fidelity Bank, Vitafoam, UBA, United Capital, and Custodian Investment, among others. These gains, expectedly, impacted positively on Year-To-Date loss, reducing it sharply to 2.72%, just as the loss in market capitalization YTD also crashed to N649.46bn, representing a 3.04% decline from its opening value for the year.

Bearish Sector Indices

Sectorial performance indexes were bearish, except for the NGX Oil/Gas that closed 0.11% higher, while the NGX Insurance Index led the decliners, after losing 0.18%, followed by Consumer, Industrial Goods and Banking with 0.09%, 0.06%, and 0.02%respectively.

Market breadth was positive, as gainers slightly outnumbered losers in the ratio of 21:20, while transactions in volume and value terms were up significantly also, with stockbrokers trading 474.53m shares worth N3.98bn, compared to the previous day’s 194.95m units valued at N1.02 billion. Volume was boosted by trades in BOC Gases, GTCO, ETI, Jaiz Bank, and FBN Holdings.

Airtel Africa and Unity Bank were the best-performing stocks during the session, as they gained 10% and 7.14%, closing at N715 and N0.60 per share respectively on the strength of market forces and sentiments. On the flip side, Juli Pharmacy and Consolidated Hallmark Insurance lost 9.01% and 6.90% respectively, closing at N1.01 and N0.54 per share, on selloffs and profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect the mixed trend to continue, as investors play defensive stocks and high cap companies that control an estimated 60% of the market in the face of ongoing portfolio reshuffling and interpretation of the corporate earnings ahead of the July inflation, and Q2 GDP data release, as well as results from interim dividend-paying banks. Also, investors are still observing the interplay of market forces following recent developments in the FX market with the decision to stop the sale of US$ to BDC operators immediately. The day’s mixed volume suggests that smart money is taking advantage of the oscillating trend and relatively low prices to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues to oscillate in the international market; corporate actions, as well as the 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 $68pb to support the global economy 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 mixed half-year earnings.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021 and beyond, 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.

WORDS TO TRADE BY

“Courage taught me no matter how bad a crisis gets ... any sound investment will eventually pay off.”

― Carlos Slim Helu

Don't freak out over the inevitable setbacks that all investors face, especially during a crisis in the market. The market goes up, then down, then up again. Though it can be erratic at times, that's the gist of it.
Seeing a significant sell-off or pullback shouldn't spook a trader who has a solid trading plan. Stay focused on the big picture. Be more cautious and methodical, but ride out the waves. If you give in and drop out, you've admitted defeat.
If your investments' reasoning is sound, stay the course, and everything will eventually work out. Just be patient.

Mixed Trend, As Investors Realign Portfolios Ahead Of July CPI, Q2 GDP Data release


Market Update for August 12

It was yet another very volatile and mixed session on the Nigerian Exchange Thursday as the NGX index action oscillated due to repositioning and profit taking activities of market players as the ongoing portfolio reshuffling and sector rotation supported the prevailing market wave ahead of the outstanding half-year results and economic data.

The mixed sentiment observed at the end of Thursday’s trading reflected the mood of sellers and buyers battling for dominance as revealed by the candlestick pattern and investdata sentiment report. Also, we note that the divergence between the index and volume action have been corrected by the day’s very high traded volume while money flow index turned up, an indication that funds entered the market to sustain the positive outing for the third consecutive session.

Technically, the composite NGX index is set to breakout the first resistance level range of 39,494.70bps and 39,875.66bps as trading opens on Friday, and any breakout of these levels will confirm a new strong trend in the market. At the same time, highly capitalised stocks remain a safe haven for players, considering the impressive half-year numbers that emanated from these companies ahead of their Q3 earnings reports expected within the last quarter of the year. Incidentally, that is also the most active quarter of the economy and the market, due to end of the year festivity and other seasonality.

Already, there is the formation of a saucer chart pattern that supports a continuation of the trend, which we need to watch as trading opens for the last session of the week, because profit taking is possible at this point or level. Below is the daily chart:


Meanwhile, Thursday’s trading opened on the green and was sustained till midday before vacillating on buying interests in high and medium cap stocks which pushed the NGX index to an intraday high of 39,582.30bps, from its lows of 39,356.59bps. Thereafter itclosed marginally above the opening level at 39,490.06bps on a negative market breadth.

Market technicals were positive but weak, with volume traded higher than that of the previous sessions in the midst of breadth that favours the bears on mixed sentiments as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiment Report showing 59% ‘buy’ volume and 41% ‘sell’ position. Total transaction volume index stood at 2.31 points, just as the impetus behind the day’s performance remained relatively strong with Money Flow Index reading 60.99 points, from the previous day’s 56.70 points, an indication that fresh funds entered the market.

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, checkout the video materials below.

Index and Market Caps

The benchmark index NGXASI, at the close of transactions gained 41.60bps, at 39,490.06bps, from an opening level of 39,448.46bps, representing a 0.11% up, just as market capitalization rose by N21.67bn at N20.57tr, from its opening value of N20.57tr, also representing a 0.11% value gain.

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.

Thursday upturn was driven by price appreciations in Dangote Cement, GTCO, Zenith Bank, Unilever, and Flour Mills, among others. These gains impacted mildly on Year-To-Date loss, as it reduced to 1.94%, just as loss in market capitalization YTD also dropped to N481.87bn, representing a 2.29% decline from its opening value for the year.

Bearish Sector Indices

Performance indexes across sectors were bearish, except for the NGX Industrial goods that closed 0.35% higher, while the NGX Insurance Index led the decliners, after shedding 1.80%, followed by Banking, Oil/Gas and Consumer goods with 0.24%, 0.23% and 0.02% respectively.

Market breadth turned significantly negative, with losers outnumbering gainers in the ratio of 24:8, while transactions in volume and value terms were up as stockbrokers traded 570.2m shares worth N2.28bn, compared to the previous day’s 181.42m units valued at N2.09bn. The day’s volume was largely driven by trades in Honeywell Flourmill Plc, Vitafoam, and FCMB.

Honeywell Flourmill and Wema Bank were the best-performing, after the consumer goods maker gained 10% to hit a new 52-week high, while the bank chalked 3.95%, closing at N1.87 and N0.79 per share respectively on the strength of impressive Q1 numbers and market forces. On the flip side, SFS REIT and Tripple Gee lost 9.99% and 9.28% respectively, closing at N61.75 and N0.88 per share, on selloffs and profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect the mixed trend to continue on profit booking and repositioning in value and growth stocks on the strength of half-year earnings reports, while investors continue their portfolio reshuffling and studying of the corporate earnings ahead of the July inflation, and Q2 GDP data release, as well as results from interim dividend-paying banks. Also, investors are still observing the interplay of market forces following recent developments in the FX market with the decision to stop the sale of US$ to BDC operators. The day’s mixed volume suggests that smart money is taking advantage of the oscillating trend and relatively low prices to reposition. It is noteworthy that oil price continues to oscillate in the international market; corporate actions, as well as the 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 $68pb to support the global economy 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 mixed half-year earnings.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021 and beyond, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement and last quarter economic activities. 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 next month.

WORDS TO TRADE BY

“If you don’t know who you are, this is an expensive place to find out."

― George Goodman

The stock market is a terrible place to learn about yourself. If you don't already know your strengths and weaknesses, don't expect the market to be a good teacher.

That's because the market is an institution that collectively responds to fear, hope, despair, excitement, and greed. The market will leverage your fear and snatch away your profits before you even know what happened. In the same way, it will take advantage of your excitement and send your account into the trashcan in a heartbeat.

Before you get serious about trading, get serious about who you are and how you plan to manage your emotions. Then, and only then, can you move forward toward future success!

Re: Investdata Market Updates For Investors And Traders Forum by ACAN(m): 5:10pm On Aug 18

Investors In Caution Mode, Amid Low Volume, Await Inflation, GDP Data, Earnings


Market Update for August 16

Trading activities on the Nigerian Exchange on Monday stayed mixed and volatile as the key performance index NGXASI suffered a marginal setback to start the week on a negative note, thereby halting four consecutive sessions of bull-run due to profit-taking and price adjustment in Flour Mills, Consolidated Hallmark Insurance and Meyer for a dividend of N1.65, two kobo and N1.50 per share respectively, as recommended by their boards.

The mixed sentiment revealed the battle between buyers and sellers during the session, as portfolio repositioning and sectorial rotation continued on the strength of the positive half-year earnings reports of listed companies, ahead of the macroeconomic data and scorecards of interim dividend-paying banks. Against expectations, the July consumer price index was not made available by the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics, even as the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) reportedly, again, projected that inflation would drop to 13% before the end of 2021.

Meanwhile, the better-than-expected corporate earnings and improved Purchasing Managers’ Index, in the past quarter, have given an insight into what investors should expect from the Q2 GDP numbers scheduled for release on August 26, according to the timetable of the NBS. Also, President Mohammadu Buhari, on Monday, signed the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), which has been so ensnared in controversy into law, a move some expect would boost the nation’s economy, particularly the oil and gas sectors if faithfully implemented, despite the controversies. In all these, the global political concern and management of the Delta variants of COVID 19 will determine the rate of economic recovery if there is no further lockdown in the coming weeks and months.

Technically, the low traded volume in the midst of positive broad market and breadth suggests investors are still studying the earnings released so far and watching their positions, especially after the composite NGX index had formed a double bottom chart pattern that supports an uptrend. A breakout of the black line which is a strong resistance level of 39,840.27bps will confirm a new trend in the market. At the same time, highly capitalised stocks remain a safe haven for players, considering the impressive half-year numbers that emanated from these companies, and ahead of their Q3 earnings reports expected within the last quarter of the year. Incidentally, that is also the most active quarter of the economy and market, due to end-of-the-year festivities and other seasonality.

Meanwhile, Monday’s trading opened slightly on the upside and oscillated between the mid-morning to the afternoon on buying interests and profit booking in high and medium cap stocks which pushed the NGX index to an intraday low of 39,474.46bps, from its highs of 39,524.53bps. Thereafter it closed marginally below the opening level at 39,505.40bps on positive market breadth.

Market technicals were weak and mixed as volume traded was lower than that of the previous sessions in the midst of breadth favouring the bulls on mixed sentiments as revealed by Investdata’s Sentiment Report showing 62% ‘buy’ volume and 38% ‘sell’ position. Total transaction volume index stood at 0.58 points, just as the momentum behind the day’s performance remained relatively strong with Money Flow Index reading 54.98 points, from the previous day’s 60.38 points, an indication that some funds left the market.

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.

Index and Market Caps

At the end of Monday’s trading, the benchmark NGX All-Share index dropped 16.94bps to 39,505.40bps, from its opening level of 39,522.34bps, representing a 0.04% drop, just as market capitalization fell by N8.82bn at N20.58tr, from its N20.58tr, also representing a 0.04% 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. 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 session’s downturn was driven by price depreciation in Zenith Bank, Lafarge Africa, UBA, Chemical & Allied Products, Cadbury, Fidelity Bank, and Ecobank Transnational Incorporated, among others. These impacted mildly on Year-To-Date loss which increased to 1.90%, just as loss in market capitalization YTD rose to N473.87bn, representing a 2.25% decline from its opening value for the year.

MixedSector Indices

Performance indexes across sectors were mixed, as the NGX Banking and Industrial Goods were down by 0.65% and 0.09% respectively, while the NGX Energy Index led the advancers, after gaining 0.16%, followed by Insurance and Consumer goods with 0.04%and 0.02%respectively.

Despite the loss, market breadth turned positive with gainers outnumbering losers in the ratio of 25:15, while activities in volume and value terms dropped with investors only exchanging 141.28m shares worth N1.64bn. The day’s volume was boosted by trades in Etranzact, Fidelity Bank, Transcorp, Consolidated Hallmark Insurance and Access Bank.

MRS Oil and May & Baker were the best-performing, after gaining 9.92% and 9.77% respectively, closing at N13.85 and N4.83 per share respectively on the market forces and impressive Q2 numbers. On the flip side, ABC Transport and Lasaco Assurance lost 8.33% and 6.67% respectively, closing at N0.33 and N1.40 per share, on selloffs and profit-taking.

Market Outlook

We expect the mixed trend to continue on profit booking and repositioning in value and growth stocks on the strength of half-year earnings reports, while investors continue their portfolio reshuffling and studying of the corporate earnings ahead of the July inflation, and Q2 GDP data release, as well as results from interim dividend-paying banks. Also, investors are still observing the interplay of market forces following recent developments in the FX market as the CBN plans to launch a digital currency platform. The day’s low volume suggests that institutional investors and others are still cautiously looking at the numbers. It is noteworthy that oil price continues to oscillate in the international market; corporate actions, as well as the 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 $68pb to support the global economy 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 mixed half-year earnings.

Again, the way to go is: Target dividend-paying stocks and fundamentally sound companies with growth prospects in 2021 and beyond, looking the way of mispriced equities ahead of interim dividend announcement and last quarter economic activities.

WORDS TO TRADE BY

“Invest for the long haul. Don’t get too greedy and don’t get too scared."

― Shelby M.C. Davis

Greed is a historically bad word in our vernacular, but a reasonable level of greed is what drives the market. People invest because they want to make money. They aren't necessarily concerned about other people making money as well. So, in that sense, trading is greedy.
But you have to be careful not to become too greedy. When you cross that threshold, you're putting yourself in dangerous territory. Too much greed influences your decision-making in the wrong way.

With that being said, you also have to make sure you don't allow fear to overwhelm you. Losses happen when trading, but you can offset them by keeping your cool. Trading is all about balance. If you can let your greed and fear keep each other in check, you'll be just fine.

Investdata Daily Sentiment Report

Re: Investdata Market Updates For Investors And Traders Forum by ACAN(m): 11:38am On Aug 19
Don't miss this one Again.

Ambrose here again,

A few months ago I launched a training Video titled beyond Technical and Fundamental Analysis and I am very excited that a lot of serious investors took advantage of the Video however, I got some feedback from several investors.

They requested a comprehensive Technical analysis video. Well, it was not an easy task to produce such material and make it available to the public because it involves a lot of work in terms of organizing it, in such a way that anyone irrespective of the professional background, will grasp the essence and be able to apply it into your daily trading and analysis.

Now, the question is who really needs to know technical analysis? Well, there is no point laying too much emphasis because as long as

1. You have money in the stock market.
2. You have given your money to a firm to help you manage it.
3. Investor or trader.

It is a must for you to have this Technical Analysis Video series that I will be releasing on Friday 20th August 2021.

Hence, keep on checking your post so that you can be among the early bird to benefit from the launch price.

Dedicated to Financial Success,
Ambrose Omordion
