The market opened the week in the negative territory on another relatively quiet day in Nairobi. Foreign participation was 45% on the day. Safaricom had the highest turnover on the day, accounting for 27% of total market turnover.

Nigeria: ASI +0.51%, USD 17.5m

The market started the week on a positive note, as the banks, which were the only index up, helped the index close higher, with names like Guaranty and Zenith seeing some gains after Friday’s profit taking sell-off. International Breweries, Guaranty and Zenith were the names with the highest turnover, all accounting for a total of 41% of total market turnover.

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

Not a bad day in terms of total market turnover in Harare with the only down side being that there were only two names worth mentioning. Econet ($407k) trading at 88.99c accounted for 43% of the market while Old Mutual ($214k) contributed to almost a quarter of turnover sitting at 485.39c.
