Rand Trading with a Mind of Its Own
According to Anthea, it really wasn't a bad week on the JSE as the week started with trying to recover some of October’s losses. She updates on the Rand trading with a mind of its own, SAA being the talk of the markets as they hint at selling shares in the business and MTN looking set to settle with the Nigerian Central Bank. Discovery raised R1.85bn overnight by issuing 11.4mn new shares @ R162/sh - Anthea also comments on this, as well as all that's happening in the banking sector as Tyme launched last week and Standard Bank plans a secondary listing. She concludes with a retail sector update: Foschini and Richemont releasing results and Alibaba having their 10th Singles Day yesterday, netting $10bn in the first hour of trading.
