Weekly Capital Market Report Week Ending 23-09-22. – BusinessGhana

INVESTMENT TERM OF THE WEEK
Hold: Hold is an analyst's recommendation to neither buy nor sell a security. A company with a hold recommendation generally is expected to perform with the market or at the same pace as comparable companies. A hold recommendation can be thought of as holding what you have and holding off on buying more of that particular stock. A hold is one of the three basic investment recommendations given by professional financial analysts.
ETFs: GREAT DEAL FOR INVESTORS
An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a type of security that tracks an index, sector, commodity, or other assets, but which can be purchased or sold on a stock exchange the same as a regular stock.
New Gold ETF (GLD), an exchange-traded fund sponsored by Absa Capital, offers the opportunity to invest in gold bullion.
The company issues listed instruments (structured as debentures) backed by physical gold. Each debenture is approximately equivalent to 1/100 ounces of gold bullion, which is held with a secure depository on behalf of investors. The debentures are listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) and six other African stock exchanges.
The current share price of New Gold ETF (GLD) is GH¢166.50.
