Dangote Cement Loses 10% of Market Valuation

Consequently, the company’s valuation dipped to N4.7 trillion as investors engage in selling rallies in the local bourse on Monday.

In the last 1-month, Dangote cement has lost 16.90%, according to stock market data quoted on stock screening platform TradingView while the technical rating indicates a strong sell. The market may not be able to stop the drop this week due to weaker than expected market sentiment.

Shares of Dangote Cement had peaked at N300, thus lifting its market valuation above N5 trillion, trailing Airtel Africa in the Nigerian local bourse as the second largest.
