Movers & Shakers: October 30, 2015


Botswana: Data not available at time of writing.

Kenya: NSE 20 -0.39%, USD 3.7m

A dull and soft end to the week in Nairobi. Most of the action took place in Safcom (-30bps, KES14.35) while KNCB (-60bps, KES40.25) also fell. Equity Bank fell by 6.1% to KES 42.00 although this is deceptive thanks to yesterday's outlier in terms of closing price.

Mauritius: Semdex +0.07%, USD 810k

Some small action in MCBG and SBMH the only names worth mentioning on an otherwise dull day as 59k and 13.4m shares traded in the names respectively.

Nigeria: ASI -0.87%, USD 16.89m

Another dull day in Lagos although a couple of late bookovers spiced up proceedings. Banks rose by 1.07% with the bulk of the action taking place in GTB (+9bps, N23.09), Zenith (+3.29%, N17.60) and Stanbic (-4.83%, N18.91). Consumers fell by 2.97% with a reversal in NB from yesterday (-5.07%, N136.85) and Nestle (-1.31%, N825.01).

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

Zimbabwe: Industrials -0.22%, USD 463k

Another disappointing day in Harare with turnover amounting to $463k. There was some activity in Innscor ($337k), while the rest of the market was extremely quiet.
