It is now the second largest stock on the exchange by weighting behind cement maker DANGCEM.

On the Offer Cart: DANGCEM shed 112bps today to lead the offer cart and settle at N 176.00. The bell-weather of the exchange is now trading only 4% above its year low after recording it's ninth session of losses. The stock has declined 7% YTD vs. 15% for the Industrial Goods sector and is 30% below its consensus target price. The NSE ASI has had a strong correlation to the movement of DANGCEM, however, this correlation will be rivaled by the newly listed MTNN which is now the second most capitalized stock on the exchange.
