Stocks to watch is not a Buy/Sell/Hold recommendation. Here are the stocks on our watchlist for the week.
Stanbic IBTC and Diamond Bank
Stanbic IBTC and Diamond Bank have a joint tie for the top spot on our watch list this week.
Last week, the banks confirmed that fines imposed on them by the CBN had been deducted from their accounts. Both banks, however, disclosed that they would continue to engage the CBN, and the fines would have no impact on their day to day operations.
There could be more news surrounding the fine, MTN and the banks as a new week begins.
