NSE’s key indices improve further by 1.25%

Transactions on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) remained upbeat on Thursday for four consecutive days, with the key performance indicators improving further by 1.25 per cent.

Consequently, the All-Share Index which opened at 24,452.23 rose by 306.16 points or 1.25 per cent to close at 24,758.39.

Also, the market capitalisation grew by N159 billion or 1.25 per cent to close at N12.902 trillion compared with N12.743 trillion recorded on Wednesday.

The uptrend was impacted by gains recorded in large and medium capitalised stocks, amongst which are: Mobil, BUA Cement, Unilever, Guinness Nigeria and Zenith Bank.

Experts at United Capital Plc attributed the market rally to recovery in share prices driven by rebalancing in the oil market which resulted in 94 per cent rebound in oil prices from 18 dollars per barrel to about 35 dollars per barrel within a month.

They also attributed the rally to increasing indications that governments around the world would reopen their economies regardless of the anxiety around COVID-19.

They said cheap market valuation of high quality stocks; sustained dividend declaration by corporates, translating into attractive dividend yield amid poor rates on T-bills and sizable market liquidity contributed to the market rally.
