Ahead of the Invest 2024 Traders & Investors Summit slated for Saturday, December 2, 2023, via ZOOM, the organisers, Investdata Consulting Limited has released the performance score card of the 15 Golden Stocks recommended during the last edition, which revealed a superlative performance as they recorded 103.55% average capital appreciation between December 2, 2022 to Friday, November 24, 2023. Within the period, the Composite the NGX All-Share Index grew by 38.98%.
The best capital appreciation among stock recommended as part of the 2022 edition was recorded by Transnational Corporation of Nigeria (Transcorp Plc) which opened for the period at N1.17 and closed last Friday at N6.40 per share. This represented a capital appreciation of 447.01%, which investors and traders who exited much earlier at its all time high of N7.71 made much more money.
It was followed by Dangote Sugar Refinery, which returned 270.37%, opening at N16.20, closing at N60.00, with a peak of N71.50, helped by the ongoing merger plans with sister companies into production of edible salt, tomato paste and rice into an integrated food company. Eterna Plc was next among company’s traders and investors recorded significant appreciation in their capital, as those who took position immediately after the recommendation was made in December last year at N5.34 each have seen their investment appreciate to N13.60, representing 154.68%, and even much more for those who exited at its all-time best of N37.70 each.
