Equities Market Summary:

Nairobi Securities Exchange Performance

The All Share Index (NASI) rose by 0.6% w/w while the NSE 20 remained flat to close the week at 178.50 and 1,974.46 respectively characterized by a decline in both market turnover(11.9% to KES 1.5 billion) and number of shares traded(18.0% to 45.3 million shares). There were notable price gains on Stanbic (8.8% w/w to KES 92.50), CIC (4.7% w/w to KES 3.10), ILAM Fahari IREIT (3.6% w/w to KES 6.98), KCB (2.3% w/w to KES 46.75), Equity (2.2% w/w to KES 50.00) and Standard Chartered (1.2% w/w to KES 131). Safaricom also edged up by 0.4% w/w to KES 42.10 on reports that its current Ethiopia license maybe upgraded to include mobile money services. There was however caution as Ethiopia is also expected to issue a second mobile license(which means more competition).We expect a sustained upward price momentum on banking counters (ahead of the 1H2021 results) albeit at weaker pace(profit taking activities will likely creep in leading to higher supply).
