Movers & Shakers: May 29, 2015


Botswana: DCI +0.37%, USD 4.5m

A book-over in Wilderness was the only activity to take place today in a generally dull session.

Kenya: NSE 20 -0.40%, USD 20.83m

A massive day in Kenya as some chunky foreign crosses went through in the 4 large cap names. EABL saw some large crosses again at the KES300 level before a late rally, although the ending price was still KES300 due to the "rounding down" rule. Safcom found some strong buying support after a poor week and closed marginally higher at KES15.85. The banks had a mixed day as we saw KNCB continue its slide to its worst 2015 level of KES56.50 while EqBnk was more resilient yet still closed marginally soft at KES47.25. Please note that Monday is a holiday in Kenya.

Mauritius: Semdex -0.21%, USD 4.11m

Some action in the 2 banks highlighted the Port Louis session. SBMH closed unchanged at Rs0.93 on good volumes while MCBG slipped by 20bps to Rs202.00.

Nigeria: Closed for the day

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

Zimbabwe: Industrials -0.01%, USD 333k

A dull day in Harare as the market continues to soften on light volumes. There was just light activity in Econet at 45c.
