  • Pravin Gordhan believes South Africa will dodge another recession
  • Pravin Gordhan believes South Africa will dodge another recession
    So far this year, you've heard the word recession a lot. It's a real threat to the economy right now. The third quarter of 2015 saw 0.7% gross domestic product (GDP) growth - the fourth quarter saw 0.6% GDP growth. Results of the first quarter of 2016 shows the economy contracted 1.2%. Economists expected the economy to contract only 0.1%, which leads me to believe that nobody really knows what to expect for the future of the country in the coming months. But it seems that our finance minister, Pravin Gordhan, has a different view on things. He says, “The South African economy will avoid a recession in 2016 but will remain in a low-growth trap”... ››› Read more

  • These are the best and worst penny shares in the mining sector
    Between October 2015 and mid-January 2016 the JSE Resources index crashed 38%. Mining shares were out of favour more than they've ever been. Since then, the index has recovered some of these losses, becoming one of the best performing sectors on the JSE for 2016. In fact, since the resource index's January low, it's up 40% for the year so far! But that doesn't mean you can just up and buy any mining share and make a mint… There are the good and the bad - and if you don't buy right, you'll get your fingers burnt badly, especially if you look at the junior miners or ‘penny share' component of the mining sector!... ››› Read more

  • The JSE just made a R100 billion error
  • The JSE just made a R100 billion error
    Until Sunday 24 July 2016, economists, local and international investors were investing under a false notion that foreign investors bought South African equities to the value of nearly R100 billion. Economists were mostly baffled by the figures being reported by the JSE. They could not understand why so many investors were buying up such a large portion of South African listed companies. Some said the 36 day buying spree was the result of international investors looking for high-growth in the developing economies. They were wrong... The JSE clarified this in a statement.... ››› Read more
