    I have tried to sell NMG shares 3 times with no success yet the quoted sale price is OK.What could be the problem?

    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.
