Eveready of Kenya Rises After Falling to Lowest Level Since 2007

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Eveready East Africa Ltd., a Kenyan dry-cell battery manufacturer, rose the most in four days after falling to the lowest on record yesterday.

The stock rallied 15 cents, or 6 percent, to 2.65 shillings by 12:10 p.m. in Nairobi.

“People are thinking it went down too much and it was a matter of time before it went up,” Wycliffe Masinde, a research analyst at Nairobi-based Kestrel Capital East Africa Ltd., said in a phone interview.

Eveready’s stock tumbled yesterday to its lowest level since it started trading in 2007 after the company said profit in the 12 months through September is expected to fall on increased global metal prices and rising financing costs because of depreciation in the Kenyan shilling.
