Skin in the game ..... overrated?

So the last couple of firms to go down the dark road ARM & DEACONS CEOs both had skin in the game. Is this trait overrated?
Firms will fail. It has happened for as long as there were firms and farms.

I feel sorry for both of them given they had real money at stake and didn't sell like some could have done.

I feel better in firms where the management has skin in the game. James Mwangi, BC Patel (as a director), James Mworia, etc. [Building value]

On the other hand, the former CEO of the largest destroyer of wealth in KE, had zero shares.

Some are crooks e.g. Matu who eats from the other 95%, Merali whose insider dealings eats most of the profits, Ndegwas with their conflicts (selling Ennsvalley to Unga), etc

Dande, Arora, etc have "skin in the game" too Laughing out loudly Laughing out loudly Laughing out loudly Let's see where they end up!

Exactly my point 😆😆. I try not to make this a must have requirement ie “don’t buy shares unless CEO has skin in the game ”
I own shares in KCB,CYTONN, BRK.B, Almasi Beverages and a few other private small businesses

Finally the Jan 2017 low has been smashed and we are at levels never seen in this decade. NSE 20 currently at 2783.
We were last here twice last decade, in October 2004, when Kibaki was still new in the Presidency, and April 2009 during the GFC. Yes 9 years of gains wiped out of the NSE. What separates us now from the Sept 2002 lows of 1005 is the 2360 GFC low of March 2009......more popcorns pleasePray




Closed at 2769 yesterday. Rough couple of weeks in most markets with few and far in between pockets of resilience. NSE's ambivalence was quite surprising. Let's see how much of that carnage is priced in. Watch out for cracks in the credit market, things should get more interesting as another fed hike draws closer.
The main purpose of the stock market is to make fools of as many people as possible.

Why you need a vulture’s patience at Nairobi bourse
https://www.businessdail...E&tg=1102&pt=63

“Our stay-put behaviour reflects our view that the stock market serves as a relocation centre at which money is moved from the active to the patient,”—Warren Buffett. Remember this is from a man who by the time he turned 50, he only held one percent of his current holdings (estimated at Sh8.6 trillion). He turned 88 this year.

“The world is full of foolish gamblers and they will not do as well as the patient investors.” —Charles Munger. Charles is Mr Buffett’s billionaire second-in-command at Berkshire Hathaway.

“It is possible to make money – and a great deal of money – in the stock market. But it can be done overnight or by haphazard buying and selling. The big profits go to the intelligent, careful and patient investor, not to the reckless and overeager speculator.” —J Paul Getty (Patriarch of the Getty Family)

“Patience is essential.”— Howard Marks. Marks is known for his prescient investment memos, which warned about the 2008 financial crisis and the dot-com bubble. He manages Oaktree, which oversees over Sh10 trillion of assets.

“One of the best rules anybody can learn about investing is to do nothing, absolutely nothing, unless there is something to do.”— James Rogers. James is the co-founder of the Quantum Fund and Soros Fund management

“Throughout all my years of investing I’ve found that the big money was never made in the buying or the selling. The big money was made in the waiting.”— Jessie Livermore. Boy! plunger knew the usefulness of staying patient.
