The stock market last week closed on a bearish note, occasioned by profit taking in 36 equities, thereby creating new entry opportunities for discerning investors.
Only 3 equities released their Q2 2022 results in the course of last week, which include: United Capital Plc, Africa Prudential Plc and Arbico Plc. We expect a lot of results to hit the market this week as most companies would want to meet up with the deadline of July ending.
Prices of most stocks have come down to their year low, thereby creating new entry opportunities for discerning investors.
We have always advised that investors to take position in fundamentally sound stocks as they stand the test of time. As the market is anticipating the release of most Q2 2022 results, the best strategy is to take position before the release of these results.
