When you bought thousands of stocks at 40/- its so tempting to want to start cashing in.

With the pending review of interest rate caps it might be worth considering holding on for an exponential spike in price for a few days after the official announcement is made. Plus you would have enjoyed dividends.

Old friend, you can imagine the size of the smile on my face when equity is at 50. i bought at 27.00 immediately when rate cap hit. you know how long some of us waited to enter some of these bluechips.

With rate cap being lifted and politics "normalising" i think banks will rally hard. Bear in mind the rally to 40 was before rate cap lifting. ka ching ching.

From what i have seen, shares react before the announcement ie rumours. hence the " buy the rumour, sell the news " quote. but i would wait for the full rally based on profit growth going forward due to the cap being lifted

The dividend yield on this stock has always been very juicy. I think it will be fully priced at 60 - 65 which is where it was hovering before rate cap....I will sell 25% of the stock at 55, send the money to park at Safcom stock

He bought at 40, so he is yielding 5%. This is quite decent. The case is different for anyone buying at 60 whose entry yield drops to 3.3%.

But mathematically with a total dividend of 3bob it will be at 5% while at 60....The highest dividend yield for in the NSE stock with an almost guaranteed dividend payout. If sb wants to buy a stock for dividend, THIS IS IT.

Insurance stocks show no sign of movement? They were trading at double their prices today when the banks were at the current prices back in 1st April 2015(Yes the bear has been that long). My ABP for KCB is 43. A 2bob dividend is 4.65% not bad at all combined with the modest 18% capital gain.

Enjoy. I picked Equity over KCB. No complaints.

No complaints. Equity touched 53.50 today for some decent volumes at 53.50
I picked Equity over KCB. It may be a mistake to alight from Equity at this stage but I shall do so and hold cash.

P.S. I still remain a fan of Equity over KCB.

Yes, I am and it pains Sad me to sell Equity but I am also looking at another (better?) investment. The "cash on hand" is a temporary situation for me. I am not "trading" Equity shares.

BTW, I may be forced to sell Sad NIC too [not a core holding but one I like] if I need more cash. Based on my perception (PER, P/B) of NIC vs Equity, I chose to sell Equity first.

If we had options in Kenya, then I would not sell Equity/NIC and hold cash but execute the Puts when the "other" investment was ready to be funded.

My mentor has (operating) businesses that generate a lot of cash but alas I do not. Nor do I have his ability to raise (cheap) funds from banks/bonds as needed. Ideally, I should be able to borrow to fund my investments but that's not possible/feasible and the cost (13.5% + 2.5% fees) remains scary.

If I had (unleveraged) "cash" I would not sell Equity, NIC, etc.
In 2017, I started "cleaning up" my portfolio and sold off many "orphans" that were laggards.

I hope when I have "free cash" I can re-enter Equity at a reasonable valuation.

Anyway, this is a KCB thread. Enjoy.

This morning demand for Equity stock is drying up...so far I have sold 60% of my holding at 52 - 53.50 after buying at 36...its currently overpriced past 50, relative to the other banking stocks.
