The Nigerian equities market, on Thursday, gained N28bn as 28 stocks appreciated.

A total of 513.8 million shares valued at N6.448bn exchanged hands in 4,243 deals.

The equities market rebounded as the All-Share Index rose by 22 basis points to settle at 36,688.75 basis points, while the year-to-date return expanded to 36.5 per cent.

Accordingly, market capitalisation increased by N27.8bn to settle at N12.773tn. Acording to analysts at Afrinvest Securities, the day’s performance can largely be credited to price appreciations in Zenith Bank Plc, International Breweries Plc, Access Bank Plc and Dangote Sugar Refinery Plc, which appreciated respectively by 1.8 per cent, 4.1 per cent, 2.5 per cent and 2.5 per cent.

In addition, activity level improved as volume and value traded rose by 55.1 per cent and 15.9 per cent to 513.8 million units and N6.4bn, respectively.

Performance across sectors was broadly bullish. First on the gainers chart was the Banking Index, which was up by 0.8 per cent as buying interest in Zenith Bank, United Bank for Africa Plc and Access Bank drove the index to a positive close.

The oil/gas index followed, rising by 0.5 per cent, primarily on the back of price appreciation in Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc, which gained one per cent.
