Movers & Shakers: February 27, 2017


Botswana: DCI +0.29%, USD 1.0m

A solid start to the week on the activity front in Gaborone thanks to a cross in FNBB as 3.3m shares changed hands.

Kenya: NSE 20 +0.34%, USD 1.1m

It was a painfully slow start to the week in Nairobi with some tiny activity in EQBNK ($529k) the only name worth mentioning as the rest of the heavyweights were dead quiet.

Mauritius: Semdex unch, USD 250k

A very dull start to the week in Port Louis after the long weekend with nothing worth writing home about.

Nigeria: ASI +0.49%, USD 8.0m

Zenith Bank released their FY 2016 results which saw PAT increase 23% to N129bn, and as such, was the most active name on the day with $3.2m worth of stock changing hands. Elsewhere, there was some decent activity in NB ($1.5m) while the rest of the market was relatively quiet. Banking stocks closed the day +1.00% higher thanks to GTB (+2.37%) and Zenith (+0.48%). Consumers (+0.72%) closed in positive territory thanks to a good gain in NB (+1.54%).

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

Zimbabwe: Industrials +0.05%, USD 1.0m

There was finally some life in Harare, relatively speaking, with some action in OK Zim ($349k) and Mashonaland ($257k) driving proceedings.
