18th May, 2012
The Nigerian stock exchange ended the week , shaving about N51 billion from the market capitalization, with which it opened Monday.
Despite that 20 stocks led by conglomerate UACN appreciated Friday, it was not enough to shore up the market.
The index closed at 22, 479 in contrast with Monday’s 22,552. Market capitalization on Monday was N7.192 trillion. By Friday, it shrank to N7.137 trillion. The market tried to rally Wednesday, but the efforts fizzled out on Thursday and Friday, as profit takers and bears took over proceedings.
