Movers & Shakers: February 23, 2017


Botswana: DCI -0.12%, USD 155k

Nothing noteworthy to report on from Gaborone.

Kenya: NSE 20 +0.87%, USD 3.0m

It was an extremely quiet day on the Nairobi bourse today. A large reason for this can be attributed to the fall in foreign participation. Once again the most active stock was Safcom as we saw more than $1.1m change hands in the name. The stock ended the day unchanged at KES18.00. The only other stocks that saw any reasonable trading was EABL (+40bps, KES225.00) and Stanbic Bank (unch, KES67.00).

Mauritius: Semdex unch, USD 670k

A slow day ahead of the long weekend with tomorrow being closed for a public holiday. MCBG was once again the only name that had any life as 59k shares changed hands.

Nigeria: ASI +0.63%, USD 5.5m

Another pathetically dull day in Nigeria. However, we did finally see some small buying return as both the banks (+1.40%) and consumers (+1.36%) closed higher for the day. The most active name was NB with some nice crosses going through, and we are also seeing the name bounce back (+3.08%, N133.99) after its recent weakness. There was also a local cross in Mobil, while in the banks the sector was extremely quiet except for some late crossing in GTB (+3.92%, N24.65).

Please note that the index figure above is correct at the time of writing.

Zimbabwe: Industrials -0.42%, USD 300k

Some smal activity in Innscor($152k) the only name worth mentioning on another dull day in Harare.
