  • Revealed: The four vital secrets of successful investing
  • The biggest lie relating to stock markets you'll ever hear is something you'll be told often. It's a lie presented by fund managers, personal financial advisers and media analysts alike. And it goes a little something like this: “As a private investor, you're not smart enough to operate your own account. Instead you should rather listen to us, give us your money and we'll do it for you…At a cost.” Obviously they don't say it quite like this, but it's what they mean. The essence behind their big lie is this: They want you to follow their traditional, conservative approach to investing in large-cap shares. But there are better ways to grow your wealth than this. That's why I'd like to share with you my four biggest wealth secrets:... ››› Read more

  • How to ensure you never get stuck in investment quicksand again
  • Suresh recently asked me: "How do I determine the liquidity of a company? If I buy shares and then decide to sell them, how can I determine if there would be buyers for my shares? Will I always be able to sell my shares?" Being in a position where a share that have no liquidity is like being in quicksand. You can struggle to sell the shares, but you'll get absolutely nowhere! Fortunately, you'll be able to sell all the shares I tip because I make sure I only tip shares with a minimum liquidity of R50,000 to R100,000 a day. So if a share doesn't have liquidity and doesn't trade in decent volumes every day, I won't tip it. Now, for the answer to the rest of Suresh's question. The easiest way to find out about the liquidity of a share is to ask your broker! Pick up the phone and ask him what the average daily traded value for a share is. He'll be able to give you an answer. But if you're like me and you want to make sure about these things for yourself, then there's the long way…... ››› Read more

  • “Government could nationalise everything - And you're still telling us to invest?”
  • When I opened my emails this morning I received a message from Kel. Kel wanted to know if I'm crazy. In short, I recently told you how Zuma plans to turn our property into his new cash cow. There's the land valuation act as well as the new expropriation act that will be signed into law, and in combination these two pieces of law give the president, his ministers and government employees the power to TAKE our property. But Kel's problem with my whole message is that I'm still saying ‘invest in South Africa'. In fact, I'm a property investor myself. Isn't that just crazy?... ››› Read more

  • Warning: “South Africa's economy is flirting on recession” Here's what you must do…
  • On Tuesday, the World Bank announced it cut South Africa's economic growth forecast to 0.8% in 2016. Followed by the words, “The economy is flirting with stagnation if not recession”. What's more is, the World Bank's economic outlook for South Africa is in line with the IMF's - which estimates economic growth rate to reach 0.7%. The bottom line is your investments are at risk. So, if you want to improve your portfolio's risk/return profile, adding fixed income funds creates a more balanced portfolio, strengthens diversification and calms volatility.
