1.1BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Following precedence on what Nigeria capital market has been like before the introduction of the Structural Adjustment programme (SAP). Ayadi (1983) highlighted that many companies could afford to ignore the capital market since they had vast pool of loanable funds to draw from.
However, according to the federal government gazette (1989), the introduction of SAP and certain policy measures such as the deregulation of interest rate, mopping up of excess liquidity were introduced with the measures, it becomes impossible for business organizations to borrow funds from the money market and as a result more companies are now turning to the capital market.
According to Samuels and Yaccounts (1981), the Nigerian Stock Exchange Market follows a random walk hypothesis. The problem with Ajayi’s work which was quite exhaustive is that his conclusions may not be valid anymore in the structural changes sweeping across Nigerian financial system.
Ekechi (1980), in a study of monthly returns between 1977 and 1987 of twenty companies quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange also found substantial support for the random walk hypothesis.
In an effort to refute the randomness of stock prices, Alexander (1964), tried to device some trading values solely on prices of a security moves up at least T percent from a subsequent high, at which time go short. The short position is maintained until the prices rises to at least Y percent above a subsequent low.
In order to appreciate the research work, it is better to briefly define the following terms; risk, portfolio and capital market with the content of financial management.
Blume (1978), defined risk “as the degree of profitability of occurrence assigned to an investing or financial decision from the observed knowledge of the part of existing events”. Where there are certain parameters of decision problem, whole value are impossible to fully specify in advance, we say, it is risky, better still, risky events are predictable and foreseeable only within the existence of some degree of confidence.
Unugbro (2004), “risk is the possibility of an adverse deviation from a desired outcome that is expected”.
Portfolio is a collection of investment for an investor. Portfolio can be collection of shares, for an investor property company his portfolio can be a collection of buildings.
For a financial manager of various projects, these will be fully expanciated in the subsequent chapter. It is a market which comprises of many participants which primarily deals with facilities of raising new capital for companies to survive and to enjoy operation in perpetuity.
