The global economy recorded stronger recovery and growth in recent times as revealed by the piles of positive data emanating from the developed world in the form of stronger GDP numbers, especially the rise in commodity prices, particularly crude oil. Despite these, uncertainties are mounting high with the recent North Korea missile attack on the U.S. border and geo-political issues that remain a cause for concern among investors. Economic risk of rate hike in the amidst economic growth as Q3 GDP and other data continue to push stock markets up, despite the long expected correction due to over- valuation.
Back home, Investdata sees the possibility of the Nigerian market breaking out of the recent resistance level is high with the trend ability and momentum that rebounded after Moody’s downgrade and MSCI reshuffling induced pullbacks. This is due to end of year expectations that triggered demand for stocks on the strength of stronger corporate earnings and stronger inflows as positive macro-economic data confirmed that the economy is on the growth path, notwithstanding the fact that it is slow at 1.4% as shown in the Q3 GDP figure released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).
In the new month, Investdata expects inflation for the month of November to continue its gradual downward movement; just as the PMI has further improved to support recovery in the manufacturing sector given that Q3 numbers from the sector beat market and analysts’ expectations.
With only few quarterly earnings expected in this month and new trading pattern unfold as a result of seasonal changes, investors and traders are expected to reposition and balance their portfolios ahead of full year earnings in 2018, based on their interpretation of the scorecards and changes that will keep the market oscillating.
The Q3 numbers had revealed the financial position and health of the companies and indeed the market, while the low valued stocks with high upside potentials should be the target of investors. The strong intrinsic value remains a plus and should guide investors to know where to look while seeking to invest profitably for the remaining days of the year and beyond.
Traders and investors who understand the importance of combining fundaments and technical analysis in making investment decisions in the stock market should take this opportunity of any pullback in prices to position in some sectors for short, medium and long term gains, especially in the fast moving consumer goods, banking, agribusiness, building material and healthcare after carefully study of the recent price pattern and fundamental data available in the market.

What to expect in December
