  • 17 reasons to add penny shares to your investment portfolio today
    Penny shares are the black sheep of the investment market. Most investors ignore these shares because they simply don't know how to deal with them. Penny shares are volatile - They'll be up one day and down the next. Their share prices tend to swing around violently leaving investors that are unprepared for this activity nervous and afraid of what the share price will do next. But there are hundreds of penny shares on the market across a wide range of industries like commodities, technology, health, agriculture and energy. This means that investors who know what they're doing are spoilt for choice when it comes to penny share investing. The truth is, if you can harness the power of penny share investing, you can make a lot of money and change the way you live your life. These shares are explosive and profitable and if you play your cards right, you can make millions from the market that most investors ignore. That's why today I want to show you 17 reasons why you need to add penny shares to your portfolio as soon as possible.... ››› Read more

  • Brexit and Tshwane make it nearly impossible to predict what the South African Rand is going to do next
  • Brexit and Tshwane make it nearly impossible to predict what the South African Rand is going to do next
    This week, the South African Rand is at its highest level in seven weeks. It's clawing back against the dollar trading at around R14.74. I don't know about you but I certainly didn't expect the rand to gain so much ground. I must admit that I had severely negative outlook for the rand this month. With the political unrest in Tshwane and a new wave of violent strikes in the country, I expected a weaker performance from the currency. But once again, the currency has proved its resilience.... ››› Read more

  • Joshua Benton reveals: Three emerging trends that will produce the next millionaire investor...
    Joshua Benton's track-record in managing this portfolio is nothing short of spectacular. He recently sold three shares from this portfolio and helped his readers pocket some phenomenal returns: • Afrocentric sold for a 77.99% gain • Combined Motor Holdings sold for 30.37% gain • Oceana sold for a 216.57% gain Out of the 19 open positions in his portfolio, only three shares are in negative territory. The biggest loser so far is only down 3% and Joshua is encouraging his readers to buy more of this share. Right now the overall portfolio is sitting at a 225.20% return while the JSE All Share Index is at 79.11%. Given the fact that Joshua is proving to be one of the best stock pickers in the country right now, I sat down with him, to find out where he believes the next great investment opportunities are. Here's the transcript of that interview...... ››› Read more

  • Bidvest's Food Service unbundling was a huge success… But should you still be holding Bidcorp shares?
  • Bidvest's Food Service unbundling was a huge success… But should you still be holding Bidcorp shares?
    The Bidvest group recently unbundled its Food Service business and listed it separately on the JSE as Bid Corporation (Bidcorp) - share code (JSE: BID). Bidcorp received a warm welcome on its debut, kicking off the day at R270 a share and closing well up at R304 (giving it a massive market capitalisation of R102bn). But let's recap quickly… The reason for this unbundling was to create a focused growth platform and give investors more targeted exposure to the food service business. But, after the enthusiastic reception, in which the market pushed Bidcorp's share price into very expensive territory, the share price subsequently collapsed to a recent low of R240.15. This raises the question: Should you should buy, hold or sell this new addition to your portfolio? Before I answer that question, it's important to take a closer look at the company…... ››› Read more

  • How much money do you need to start investing?
    How much cash should you put into your account to start investing? Does it even matter? The amount of money you start out with could be of crucial importance - and if you miss this you could end up losing money from winning shares.

  • Do you make this classic first-time investor mistake?
  • Do you make this classic first-time investor mistake?
    Every week I chat to my cousin in Cape Town. We usually start off speaking about family politics and end up debating money and investing. Now, since he's been running a successful transport company in the Western Cape, he's been starting to invest a lot more of his cash. Usually, he makes relatively solid investment decisions, but this week, he made a classic investment blunder. He decided to invest 90% of the income he made in 2015, into one listed property company. The other 10% he used as a deposit on a new car. When I tried to explain the impact of his mistake, he became defensive and highly emotional. You see, investing all your money into one share is one of the most common investment blunders new investors make. You're blindly putting all your faith in the performance of one company. This is not a trait of a savvy investor. I certainly don't want you to make the same mistake my cousin just did...... ››› Read more

  • The 3 kinds of stocks you need to avoid on the JSE right now
  • The 3 kinds of stocks you need to avoid on the JSE right now
    I don't think there's a thing as the “perfect” stock. Yes there are stocks that demonstrate consistent profit growth, churn out cash flow and reward shareholders on a yearly basis. But every stock has its flaws. Whether it's way too expensive, over-hyped, worryingly cheap or just run out of steam, investors could easily fall for buying the a stock that looks attractive but ends up bust. Some investors take it for granted that most of the time, doing nothing is the right thing to do in the stock market. That's why I'm going to show three types of stocks you must watch out for, especially when volatility has caused stocks to look extremely attractive like we're experiencing on the JSE right now.... ››› Read more

  • What will happen to stocks if Britain dumps the European Union?
    If you thought politics and economics in South Africa is exciting, then you've been missing out on what happening in Europe right now. The United Kingdom is about to make a drastic decision that could have an impact on the global economic system. On Thursday, the UK will have a referendum on the 'Brexit' - to decide if the UK stays or leaves the European Union. Last week, a poll for the Evening Standard newspaper showed that the campaign to leave Europe was gaining ground with 53% of Britons now wanting to leave and 47% wanting to stay. There's very little doubt that the world is watching the result of this referendum closely. If the UK turns it back on the European Union, South Africa and many other countries will feel the effects.... ››› Read more

  • Four ways to prepare your portfolio for the next recession
  • Four ways to prepare your portfolio for the next recession
    You already know that rumours of a recession are circulating around the investment markets. 2016 has been a tough year for the South African economy and the hard times don't look like they're going to stop any time soon. Statistics South Africa shows that the economy is already down 1.2% for the year. We're in the middle of a drought and the price of food, electricity and water is steadily increasing. Even if we don't hit a technical recession, which is highly unlikely, you still have to prepare your investment portfolio for the tough times ahead.... ››› Read more

  • One man pockets R21.8 million for Vodacom's decent performance
    Since the markets opened on 4 January 2016, Vodacom's share price has increased nearly 6%. Its closest rival, MTN's share price fell nearly 5% since the markets opened. Telkom on the other hand has proved that it's less than worthy down nearly 11% over the same time frame. But there's one man that's smiling all the way to the bank. That's Vodacom's CEO Shameel Joosub...... ››› Read more
