KenRe vid 1H 2017 https://www.facebook.com...ideos/1513347512058887/

@Ebenyo - Unga will have an interesting 2017-18. I hope we get lots of "good" [not heavy and sporadic that causes flooding] rain in your grain baskets. We should not be importing so much maize and wheat.

KenRe has been hurt with the reduction in economic activity in 2017 as businesses scale back expansion plans as well as a slowdown in business. That is evident from 1H 2017 results.

@vvs I have earned both capital gains and dividend on various counters at the NSE, USE & RSE such as BOK, BRLW, COOP, HF, KCB KEGN, KENRE, SBU.. It's just that right now I am aiming for a different type of kill. By the way UNGA is likely to post a marginal profit if not a loss, while KQ will post a marginal loss if not a profit

Mandatory concession doesn't mean you will be efficient.You can have mandatory and guaranteed business and still be inefficient e.g
Telkom kenya,KQ,kenya Railways
Key is do your best with the opportunity given to you at a particular time

Well, KQ despite being designated the "National Airline" and protected with prime slots at JKIA could not cut the mustard...
KCAA has been reluctant to allow charter flights to Nairobi to protect KQ.
Fastjet was ostensibly denied certain rights to protect KQ.

KenRe has paid me a dividend since 2013 to me, has KQ?

Bottomline: KenRe remains a good investment choice vs many other firms. Is KenRe perfect? NO...
Is the Corporate Governance good? YES [until I hear otherwise]
Is it well run [at the moment]? YES...
Is KenRe profitable? YES
Is its P/B attractive? YES

i read somewhere in the news recently that Unga will install some new machines in their eldoret depot to save costs.I liked so much as the expense were too high in the HY which led to Full year loss.I will get back after book closure.

KENRE looks solid.I got their first dividends this year and i intend to keep it and add more over the time.its my only insurance counter and i will keep it that way untill otherwise.
