FSDH Research recommends that investors should maintain long-term investment strategy in the equity market. This will help to hedge against portfolio losses associated with short-term stock price volatility.

Our analysis of historical returns shows that investors make good returns in the equity market if they invest in
stocks that have strong fundamentals and maintain a long-term view. An investor who maintains a long-term strategy will earn capital appreciation, cash dividend and/or bonus over the investment horizon.

Our analysis of the yearly returns of the equity market as measured by The Nigerian Stock Exchange All-Share Index (NSE ASI) between 2008 and 07 February 2018 shows that the market recorded both losses and gains during the period. Although the equity market depreciated in more years than it appreciated, some
stocks recorded returns in excess of 1,000%.
