The 1 pesewa gain in Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI) share is a signal of the rebound anticipated by Groupe Nduom (GN) Analysts.
In spite of the news of expected material drop in ETI revenue, this equity was expected to be resistant to the resulting negative shocks.
This can be attributed to the large market cap of the stock, its liquid nature and the expectation that retail investors would take advantage of the dip in ETI share price to make some competitive returns.
Ecobank Ghana (EBG,) a subsidiary of ETI is expected to post positive FY2015 financials.
EBG having a market capitalization of GHS2.055 billion would drive up market returns should investors react positively to the yet-to-be-released FY2015 financials.
