  • “How do I know when to sell my winning shares?”
  • Last night at the South African Investor member meeting, someone asked an important question. Right now, when the market is threatening to tank, this question is more important than ever. You see, investors are afraid to lose thier investment gains. But they're also afraid to make the wrong investment moves. You could sell your winning shares too soon and miss out on even more upside, or your could end up staying invested too long and losing all your profits. That's why I spoke to Francois Joubert, Editor of Red Hot Penny Shares, I believe he is the best person to help me find the answer to this question. He revealed four criterion you need to follow to help you make the right decision with your winning investments.... ››› Read more

  • Why you should always look at the Price Earnings ratio before you invest
  • When you're looking for a solid share to invest in, the company's Price Earnings Ratio (PE) is a great way to find a good investment. You see, the PE ratio shows you the relationship between the price of a share and the profits the company is making. But more importantly, the PE ratio reveals to you whether a share is cheap or expensive. It could also tell you where the share's going (and where the market thinks it is going). In fact, if you look at this ratio correctly you could see the stock's future, and what its price really should be…... ››› Read more

  • The “do it yourself” retirement plan - Beat the market and save R1,198,087 in fees
    For decades, retirement investors handed over control of their finances to someone else to squeeze as much as they can out of their retirement annuities (RA). If you're doing that, then you know it means accepting mediocre returns and paying high management fees. But there's a little-known ‘new generation' RA that lets you customise your investments. In fact, you now have full control over your investments and savings and you don't have to pay around 3% in management fees every year...... ››› Read more

  • Why this forgotten investment could be your saving grace in retirement
  • Why this forgotten investment could be your saving grace in retirement
    Right now there's an investment you've probably forgotten about. I'm not talking about your equity portfolio, your government bonds or even your retirement annuity. I'm talking about a specific investment that will either contribute greatly towards your retirement or leave you struggling to make ends meet when you stop working. You might have forgotten about this investment but right now, it's actually decaying. There is something you can do to slow down the decay but you can never put a stop to it. If you don't do something to change the way you deal with this forgotten investment today, you might as well throw in the towel, hang up your gloves and walk away from any hope of a brighter future... If you'd like to know what this investment is why it holds so much power of your future, and then keep reading... I'm about to reveal it all.... ››› Read more

  • Investing for attractive returns could be an investor's worst mistake…
  • Investing for attractive returns could be an investor's worst mistake…
    Recently I came across an article on MoneyWeb with the headline, “Preference share offering 14.5%”. Preference shares returning 14.5%? I've only really seen a preference share offer investors around 10% and that's Grindrod, which is a solid proven company. So I was sceptical when I read this headline and I immediately investigated how this investment was offering such a good yield. The worst part is, I can't help but think that many first time investors could fall for these “attractive” returns and in the long-run lose out. That's why before you put your money in any investment that's offering “attractive” returns, you need to identify two factors. But first I'm going to explain why I'm sceptical about the sustainability of this investment.... ››› Read more

  • 3 CFD strategies to help you trade a volatile market…
    Last week, we published the kind of recommendation I prefer not to put into the public domain. • First, it was a short-recommendation. • Second it was a short-recommendation on an established, stable and, what most people would consider, blue-chip company. • Third, it used a fairly advanced trading instrument that's often misunderstood by the general public. But, in spite of these very good reasons for me to remain silent, I chose to share a trade idea with you. The company in question was Vodacom. The market was looking for Headline Earnings per Share (HEPS) of R9.05 and revenue of R82.34bn. On Monday, Vodacom released its full year results and missed on both the top and the bottom lines. Revenue came in light at R80.08bn and the group only managed HEPS of R8.83. As a result, the share price fell. This “fundamental” type of trade is just one way in which you can use long/short trading instruments. Today, I'd like to dispel some of the myths around these geared instruments and explain how they can be used in responsible ways. So today, let's look at three ways traders use geared products to profit from short-term market movements.... ››› Read more

  • Two pitfalls that most retirees never see coming
  • Two pitfalls that most retirees never see coming
    Have you ever asked yourself, “Will you live as well as your parents did when you retire?” That's a question thousands of South Africans ask themselves everyday when they reach retirement. The sad truth is, the answer is probably always, “No, I won't” And, it's no surprise... You know the statistics that say, only a quarter of South Africans will retire comfortably. The rest will end up running out of money before they die. But what happens if you are prepared for your retirement. You know that you have enough saved up to get you through another lifetime. Then, when the big day arrives, you head off to get your cash and there's less than you thought. Even if you think you are prepared, there are two major pitfalls that most retirees never see coming.
