  • Three ways to identify the ‘Double Your Money' shares from value traps
    What if I told you there's a way to find shares that consistently outperform the market? Sounds too good to be true. But the fact is, fourteen shares I invested in between 2010 and 2016 provided me with returns outstripping 100% each….

Growing profits by as much as 142% in an economy that's in recession is nearly impossible. But Insimbi achieved this - how you ask? Well, the company made a smart acquisition at the end of... ››› more

  • Don't be a victim of the Monte Carlo fallacy
    In 1913, a roulette table in a Monte Carlo casino had black come up 26 times in a row. After the 15th black, gamblers from all over the casino started to pile on to red, assuming the chances of yet another black was out of the question. Guess what, many people lost a lot of money, this illustrates the irrational belief that one spin somehow or another influences the next. Let me explain... ››› more

    The JSE's rally from late June accounts for all the growth we've seen this year. The bullish tone is threatening a break above the trading range which has confined the market for more than three years. As in common at this stage, small caps and midcaps have lagged significantly and we expect them to play catch up. Mid-caps to consider include: MicroMega, Santova, AdvTech and AECI. **... ››› more
