    Dear Kwayisi,
    Longhorn share price has been consistently falling since January, 2015 with isolated incidences of the prices rising. What do you think is the reason for this? Though I am most interested in the recent spike on Friday 22nd, the plateau during the day and then the general decline that has persisted until today. Additionally, what are your predictions for Longhorn Publishers share price?
    I am most interested in your response.
    Thank you,

      Ruth, since the Kenyan capital market itself has not been performing well lately, it's natural that equities as well take a hit. Aside that, I thought Longhorn was a bit overpriced at Sh10 (last year); therefore, it's only logical that the market assigns it its true value. (The company's 2015 gross revenue and profit are said to have dropped by over 20% - unofficial source.)

      On the January 22 +0.20 price adjustment, I'd simply attribute it to normal market price fluctuations that happen every now and again. After all, the value of trade on the said date was only about 150k. On my prediction for Longhorn Publishers, well, I don't expect an exceptional performance this year. If the market picks up, so will it; but I'll level it at ~6 shillings.
