The Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector emerged as the top performer in 2023 as investors continued to pay more attention to FMCG stocks.

FMCG companies experienced a turnaround in operating margins mainly due to rebounding revenue growth and easing cost pressures, which benefited from stable cedi and softer inflation.

Unilever Ghana's stock rallied (GH¢8.11, +109.02%), leading in the FMCG space after showcasing robust figures in its nine months of  2023 results with an 857% year-on-year increase in net profit.

Guinness Ghana Breweries (GH¢3.04, +65.85%) experienced a recovery from nine months of 2022 losses to achieve a substantial 648% year-on-year surge in profit for its full-year ending June 2023.

Fan Milk (GH¢3.25, +8.33%) posted moderate gains and made progress, though the ice cream manufacturer reported a 200% year-on-year increase in net profit for nine months 2023 financial results.

BOPP concluded 2023 as best performer

Benso Oil Palm Plantation (GH¢22.00, 187.58%) concluded 2023 as the best performer on the market, driven by the company's robust earnings growth and attractive dividend yield, which consistently drew investors towards the stock throughout the year.

The stock benefitted from the increased crude palm oil prices that resulted from heightened global demand.

TotalEnergies impresses investors

TotalEnergies, a leading oil marketing company (GH¢9.00, +125.00%), continued to be in the spotlight as the company's impressive financial performance and stable dividend yield continued to impress investors.

TotalEnergies demonstrated unwavering resilience in the face of volatile macroeconomic conditions, posting 22% year-on-year growth in net profit during nine months 2023.

However, its oil marketing counterpart, GOIL PLC (GH¢1.50, -12.79%), struggled all year after consistently reporting disappointing results.
