    To Collins, Evelyn, Shamim Kemigisha, Biragiro Roland, Muyinda Richard, Habat, Viola Nalwooga, Natukunda Mercy, Stephen Bulle: Some of the best companies to buy shares in are BATU, Stanbic, Umeme, Baroda, DFCU, New Vision Group, etc. You can just rank them yourself basing on profitability. Atleast those mentioned above are some of in the top 10. Stanbic has very high profitability, it made UGX206Bn in 2018, Baroda made UGX73Bn, DFCU made UGX62Bn, New Vision made UGX2Bn, Uganda Clays made UGX1.6Bn. But just know that the decision on which one to invest in depends on you. Every company has a different share price. You need to visit a stock broker like Crested Capital, Baroda Capital Markets, Equity Stock Brokers, Alliance Africa, etc. Starting amount for share trading is UGX100,000; start small then grow. Same from your salary and invest in shares monthly. Sacrifice.

    To Denis, Marion: Well more information can be got from Uganda Securities Exchange, Capital Markets Authority and any stock broker around town. Get a list of them from USE website.

    To Mary: About Cipla listing, I see it has just recently listed and its 1st year upon listing it shows loss in its Profit & Loss statement (it had no profitability). So first abandon it for now.

    To Isabirye Frank: Thanks Frank. You said you lecture at Busitema, which branch? I have a colleague (Ronald Emojong) teaching accounting at Busitema Pallisa and Tororo, brilliant guy. He could also help push such topics to students in class. It’s always good to give students out of class experience so that they can become dynamic as the world is always moving fast…especially business-wise. You can reach me on 0789962775 (whatsapp).

    To Wogooli Cornelius: Questions have been answered now.

    Let me hope I have helped.

    Hello Julius,
    I would like to know the following:

    Limit order has a specified price when it is posted for execution while
    A market order does not have a specific price when posted for execution. Could you exemplify exactly how these two are executed?

    Investments are Liquid: meaning Shares and Bonds can be bought and sold anytime the market is open for trading. Could you throw more light on this? Give an example of how this happens

    Thank you
