According to the Zan Securities Chief Executive Officer Raphael Masumbuko, “We will see an upward correction in the coming weeks pertinent to optimistic sentiments of full year 2022 results for a number of counters,”
He added, “As the IMF projects a rather gloomy 2023, our domestic market sentiment remains relatively neutral, and we understand equity markets are in a positive trajectory. Like in 2022, in our view, the domestic recovery of the economy and GDP growth will subsequently make companies relatively more profitable, equity prices are likely to increase in Q2 (2023) as companies begin to release their audited financials for the year ending 2022,”
