SEPLAT takes the Oil and gas sector by storm, hoisting the ASI along the way   

On the back of a 536bps gain in the oil and gas sector, courtesy of the pent up demand seen in SEPLAT(+999bps), the ASI gained 19bps to settle at 47,482.73 points. Losses recorded in the remaining sectors failed to drag the market - TRANSCORP (-813bps), AFRIPRUD (-714bps), ETI (-418bps), WAPCO (-353bps), and DANGSUGAR (-59bps), even as the session was dominated by the sellers. Consequently, market breath closed down at 0.44x, after 34 stocks declined and only 15 inched up. Meanwhile, market activity improved, as volume and turnover increased by 23.23% and 183.42% to 370m units and N7.8 billion respectively. Notably, trades in MTNN accounted for 58% market turnover, after 19.8m units were crossed at N205.


What will shape the market tomorrow?

Price appreciation in SEPLAT single-handedly lifted today’s market performance, while block transactions continued to elevate activity level. We anticipate a mixed session tomorrow, amid profit taking activities across board.
