Last week, Equity turnover rose 24.6% to Ksh 2.51 billion despite a 1% decline in the top five companies on the exchange. Safaricom accounted for Ksh 1.4 billion traded, whereas the top five counters accounted for 89.62% of the activity on the market. Listen to this podcast to understand how the NSE faired last week, African markets to watch, and how Evergrande's downfall could affect a series of Asian markets.

Highlights:

  • Co-op Bank recorded a decline in activity from 3.1% of the total market activity in the previous week to 2.7% last week.
  • Longhorn Publishers recorded low activity on the exchange despite bouncing back profitability, reporting a profit of Ksh 7.48 million in profit for 2021 H1.
  • The All-share index was up 1.45%
  • The NSE 25 is back to 4000 basis points, standing 4015.08 basis points at the end of last week, signalling a lot of positive activity.
  • The 20 share index was down 0.1% closing at 2061.45 basis points.
  • Regionally, Ghana has led SSA in YTD performance, topping the chart at +43.3%. Zambia is up +21.3%. while the NSE is third at +20%.
  • Evergrande mentioned last week that it will not be able to repay its dollar-denominated debts, as their real estate wing takes a hit. The effects of the group's downfall are likely to have a ripple effect in other markets in Asia like South Korea, Japan, and Vietnam.
  • the S&P 500 was down 0.6% week on week while its YTD performance was up 18%. The Nasdaq was up 16.7% YTD and down 0.5% week on week. The Dow was down 0.1% week on week and up 13% YTD.
