Stocks prices on NSE Jump as investors seek higher yields – Bloomberg

Nigerian stocks prices surged by the most in more than five years Tuesday, extending their rally to a 12th day, as meager local interest rates sent traders on a hunt for yields.

The Nigerian Stock Exchange All Share Index climbed as much as 4.4% in Lagos, the sharpest gain since April 2015. The benchmark has climbed 12% in the past month, more than any of the other 93 major global gauges tracked by Bloomberg. It’s on the longest winning run since July 2017. Reports Bloomberg
