Nigerian stocks recorded a hat-trick of gains this week amid, the high inflow of funds seen by Airtel, BUA Cement, Nigerian Breweries in recording their session highs despite the prevailing situation in the Nigerian currency market and the surging COVID-19 caseloads in Nigeria’s vital international markets.
- However, in spite of the recent bullish run, Nairametrics remain concerned about the relatively low amount of gains seen in a number of medium and low capitalized Nigerian stocks, as institutional investors rather prefer to buy more often into blue-chip stocks.
