The Nation’s Smart Company magazine looks at the alternative investment market segment of the Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE) today which includes these companies: A. Baumann, City Trust, Eaagads, Express, Williamson Tea, Kapchorua Tea, Kenya Orchards, Limuru Tea, and the Standard (newspapers) Group.
As the Nation notes only two shares are actively traded – almost on a daily basis; One is Express (I own a few shares) which is a company that has undergone some restructuring and is, I believe, in the right place at the right time with some good growth potential.
The other is the Standard Group which is in a restructuring phase, and though it trails the Nation Media Group in most segments (except television), has some upside predicted for it given its’ daring political coverage and the upcoming election year which is always good for the newspaper industry.
