KIE Broker Update
Another upgrade this morning makes Kier a nice stock to hold long-term. Decent dividend, good transparency, sound management. Only thing to watch is some dependency on wealthier parts of the Middle East. The U.K side of the business seems well-diversified and a steady winner of contracts.
