  1. Concept

    I recommend Access and Equity Bank…Growth Stocks you should have in your portfolio. And have you thought of re-organizing your portfolio? I don’t have much faith with KQ whether you are looking at the next three months or three years.

  2. Ssembonge

    S&P 500 is flat for the year but people who risked during the darkest days have made 50% upwards.

    The ship might have left the shores.

    Bus nambari nane ilinja na ikaondoka. Take number 15.
    In layman terms, I’m surprised you didn’t buy some kcb when it was being given away for Ksh15.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I am looking to get back in into the NSE (on Bus no. 15 I guess :))
