The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) rounds up the last day of trading this week on a bearish note with investors losing N14.3 billion. The All Share Index closed at 26,348.73 basis points, down by 0.03%.

Year to date the bourse is down by 16.17%.

UAC Properties topped the gainers’ chart with an 8.08% gain to close at N1.07. Sterling Bank was next with a 4.86% to close at N1.94.

Union Diagnostic and Clinical Services closed at N4.55%, gaining N0.23. Wema Bank gained 3.64% to close at N0.57.

Access Bank rounds up the top 5 gainers with a 2.82% gain to close at N7.30. Access Bank released its 9m 2019 results for the period ended September 30, 2019 on Friday, showing an impressive increase of 44.23% profit.

On the flipside, Guinness Nigeria was the worst performing stock today. The stock shed 9.83% to close at N23.85. This is not unrelated to the unimpressive Q3 2019 results released this week.

C & I Leasing followed with a 9.59% loss to close at N6.60. Custodian Investment took a hit of 9.17% to close at N5.45.

Forte Oil closed at N16.05, shedding 8.81%. Cement Company of Northern Nigeria (CCNN) rounds up the top 5 losers with a 6.25% lose to close at N15. The loss may be as a result of investing expecting an unimpressive Q3 2019 results from the cement company. CCNN recorded a 118.5% growth in profit after tax.

Friday’s trading session witnessed 371 million shares worth N2.5 billion exchanged hands in 2,736 deals.
