Come rain come sunshine, people will have a beer , and EABL will continue to unsurprise. One thing I like about EABL is they not only perform like a company on top of their game, they also look like one. Check out their website; dividend policy is one of continued growth; they have their CSR sorted out; you know when their results will be coming out a year before the results are out; their response to competition is sure and rapid-the senator kegs are a good example of this.
In contrast, Barclays don't have a website to speak of, still prefer to buy t-bills than lending to corporate Kenya and are only responding to Equity's threat like 18 months later than they should have. They do a rights issue-ostensibly to fund their expansion into the unbanked market and then cut dividend for the same reason?
