Dangote Cement:  

Dangote Cement is Africa’s leading cement producer with three plants in   Nigeria and plans to expand into 13 other African countries. The  Group is a fully integrated quarry-to-customer producer with  production capacity of 29 million tonnes in Nigeria and new  operations set to begin across the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa.  The Group plans to have 42 million tonnes capacity by the end  of 2016 and 50-60 million tonnes of production, grinding and  import capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa by 2016. Dangote  Cement’s Obajana plant in Kogi State, Nigeria, is the largest in  Africa with 13 million tonnes capacity across four lines. The  Ibese plant in Ogun State has four cement lines with a  combined installed capacity of 12 million tonnes. The Gboko  plant in Benue State has 4 million tonnes capacity.

Zenith Bank:

Despite the challenges in the Nigerian financial services sector, with rising loan loss provisions as a result of their exposure to the oil and gas  sector as well as the potentially toxic power sector, doubts  about asset quality and weakening CAR, we still see  opportunities in the tier one banks. Zenith bank has one  of the strongest CAR’s in the sector and continues to  leverage on its stringent risk assessment framework to  mitigate capital erosion. The Bank’s balance sheet size is  a major incentive for us at this time because we believe  that its size/liquidity is a competitive edge in an economy  awash with opportunities like the Nigerian economy.  The bank also has strong brand acceptability and a wide  branch spread.

UBA:

Despite the challenges in the Nigerian financial services sector, with rising loan loss provisions as a result of their exposure to the oil and gas sector, as  well as the potentially toxic power sector, doubts  about asset quality and weakening CAR, we still  see opportunities in the tier one banks.

UBA reported impressive Q1 -2017 numbers and  even though loan loss provisions were high, in  absolute terms, the figure is not alarming and was  adequately compensated by the N27.6billion rise  in gross earnings, amounting to a 37% YoY  expansion. Our expectation for FY 2017 is  conservative and makes provision for a further  rise in loan loss provision and yet, our price target  is reasonable.
