  • The one industry I'm most excited about for 2017…
  • As I predicted last year, 2016 was a year of consolidation. Our market went nowhere. But shares are much cheaper today than they were a year ago. And that makes me optimistic about 2017. But there's one industry in particular that I've got my eyes on. It was arguably the worst sector for 2016. Agriculture. One of the worst droughts in decades hit South Africa. Farmers lost crop... ››› more

  • How minimum investing IS NOT the same as low cost investing
  • Do you know the difference between minimum investing and low-cost investing? Well, most investors would usually say they're the same thing. But this is far from the truth. Low-cost investing deals with the investments associated with investing your money, while minimum investing implies the least amount of money you can invest. In fact, failure to understand this can actually lead to... ››› more

  • The Year that was - The biggest winner of 2016 was the Rand!
    2016 has been a year many will quickly forget, but for the shock results of the Brexit vote and the US elections; it was a year where many cans were kicked down the road. Global growth remained benign and potential silver-linings have yet to gain material traction because of lingering uncertainties such as the future US foreign policy, the tensions in South East Asia, lingering debt problems i... ››› more

  • Palladium: The precious metal nobody is talking about but should be
    At times like this, gold and silver typically grab all the attention... And attract all the "safe" money. But there's another metal that could blast past both of these.

It's 15 times more rare than platinum... and 30 times more rare than gold. Rea... ››› more

  • How I use “Poisson Distribution” to successfully predict winning soccer outcomes
    Every weekend myself and a couple of mates from work head over to our local sports bar, where we catch the lunch time Barclays Premier League game that day.
