Central Bank of Nigeria


Stock Market, Nigeria, Fourth Quarter


A total of 5.9 million shares were traded in 4,752 deals in the period under review. This represents a decline of 0.6 million shares, or 9.2 per cent over the preceding quarter. The bearishness of the stock market during the review quarter emanated from the liquidity squeeze in the economy coupled with the deregulation of interest rates. Actively traded were the securities of Nigerian Breweries Ltd.: (1,204,379 shares), G. Cappa Ltd.: (793, 100 shares), Lever Brothers Nigeria Ltd.: (399,586 shares), Guinness Nigeria Ltd.: (345,465 shares) and Beecham Ltd.: (323,418 shares).
