Also, the U.S Labour Department reported that its Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 0.6% last month after edging 0.9% in April. The uptick in consumer prices in May lifted the year-on-year increase in the CPI to 5% from 4.2% in April, the highest rate since the 1980s. Consequently, all the broadest market indices in the U.S under our coverage, which includes Nasdaq Composite Index and S&P 500 Index gained 1.83% w/w, and 0.41% respectively, save for DJIA Index that lost 0.80% w/w. Also, the Federal Reserve is set to meet next week, with expectations that the higher inflation rate could lead to early monetary policy modification.

The major markets around Europe, France CAC 40, and UK FTSE 100 Index grew by 1.30% w/w, and 0.92% w/w respectively, except German DAX that remained unchanged, as the European Central Bank (ECB) maintained its dovish commitment to stick with its elevated tempo of the bond-buying program.

Furthermore, mixed sentiment prevailed in the major market indices in Asia under our coverage, as China Shanghai Composite and Hong-Kong HANG SENG both receded by 0.06%w/w, 0.26%w/w respectively, save for the India S&P BSE Index and Japan Nikkei 225 that gained 0.72%w/w and 0.02% respectively.

Also, all of the four indices in the emerging market indices under our coverage, Brazil’s BOVESPA, South-Africa FTSE/JSE Index, Argentina MERVAL, and Egypt EGX 30  dropped 0.53%w/w, 0.15%w/w, 0.15%w/w, and 0.76%w/w respectively.

We expect to see a modest recovery in the next trading week in reaction to the U.S Federal Reserve meeting and falling U.S treasury bond yield.

Transaction on the Nigerian Equity Market closed w/w on a positive note, as bullish performance dominated three of the five trading sessions. This was due to investors’ sustained bargain hunting for recently depreciated bellwether stocks. Consequently, the Market Indicators (NGX-ASI and NGX Market Capitalization) rose by 1.11% w/w to close for this week at 39,156.28 absolute points and N20.41 trillion compared to 38,726.10 absolute points and N20.18 trillion last Friday.

A total turnover of 1.06 billion shares worth N12.83 billion naira in 17,847 deals was traded this week by investors on the floor of the Nigerian Stock Exchange as against a total of 1.08 billion shares worth N9.55 billion naira in 17,930 deals last week.

Thirty-five (35) equities appreciated during the week, higher than Thirty-three (33) equities in the previous week. Thirty-six (36) equities depreciated, higher than Thirty-three (33) equities in the previous week, while ninety (90) equities remained unchanged lower than ninety-five (95) equities recorded in the previous week.


We expect mixed sentiment to persist in the coming week, the bulls would take advantage of the low prices of the recently depreciated stocks while the bears might take profits from recently appreciated stocks.
