The Nigerian All Share Index has increased by about 21.17% YTD at the end of the first half of 2022, ranking it among the best stock markets globally.

The stock market had a gain of N5.639 trillion for the six months ending June 30, 2022, as investors intensified their buying pressure, notably on blue-chip companies.

The release of corporate earnings for the entire 2021 fiscal year and the first quarter of 22 increased buying interest in dividend-paying stocks and revived optimism on the local exchange.

Consumer staples stocks, according to analysts, offer security for investors during economic downturns since consumers still need food and cleaning supplies regardless of the state of the economy, and these companies generate regular profits even then.

Here are the top five consumer goods stocks in Nigeria.
