June 15, 2021 – Transactions on Local Bourse closed today (Tuesday) on a bearish note. The negative performance was a result of investor’s profit-taking sentiments in recently appreciated bellwether stocks like AIRTELAFRICA, OKOMUOIL, and 24 others, as inflation declines for the second consecutive month to 17.93% in May.

Consequently, the market capitalization declined by 1.66% while the NGX-ASI reduced by 1.67%. However, the market breadth closed positively recording 26 gainers against 19 losers.

The discrepancy between the NGX-ASI and the market capitalization was a result of the delisting of four companies, namely:  Evans Medical Plc, Nigerian-German Plc, Roads Nigeria Plc, Unic Diversified Holdings Plc to close at N20.07trillion.
