    Will NMG share ever rise up again? It has continuously gone down for the last 6 years.
    Whats your take on this counter?

    Did NMG actually pay out 7.5 per share?

      Certainly, as the final dividend; with a pay date of July 29. Prior to that, they had paid 2.50 as interim dividend. This brings the annual dividend to KES 10.
