According to the Zan Securities Chief Executive Officer Raphael Masumbuko, there will be a slight drop in prices during this week’s trading.
“A number of counters will begin trading ex div, thus we are going to see a slight drop in prices this week, albeit company fundamentals remain strong as we enter last month of quarter 2. We expect the sharp growth registered through quarter 2 to slightly plateau as we enter quarter 3, this is largely attributed to inflation risk limiting upside potential,” Masumbuko said.
