    Immigration is one of the most divisive topics in global politics. It's split political parties, as well as nations. One side wants to lock down borders and stop the influx of immigrants into the country. While others are happy to welcome almost anyone through our borders. At least, that's the story you're likely to read and hear about. In reality it's a far more complex issue, one tha... ››› more

  • This Crypto “might just be the best thing that ever happened to Japan”
    The cryptocurrency I want to tell you about today was founded in 2014 under the development of a team of Japanese developers. This year, this cryptocurrency has seen incredible growth. My colleague and cryptocurrencies guru, Sam Volkering explains why… “The reason is that the Japanese crypto market continues to see money flow out of the “traditional” banking and finance system,... ››› more

  • The Double-Your-Money stock plays your advisors will never tell you about…
    The mainstream media will only tell you about the biggest of the big shares. You'll often hear about Naspers, Richemont and BHP Billiton. And fund managers will make these big shares the centre points of their investment funds. That is - the Balanced Fund your advisor will suggest you invest in for retirement so you don't need to take much risk. But that means you can expect 9%, 10% and if... ››› more

    Lonmin has been one of the great stories of value destruction for investors. Since my first warning about the company in 2012, it has lost 96% of its value. Simply put - it's been a big one to avoid.     Crypto Revolution: How the rise of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies could turn every R2,000 you stake into R980k       My warnings on Lonmin since 2012 ... ››› more

  • Thanks to the weak rand these commodity shares are set to rocket
    The rand started out 2017 at 13.78, and quickly strengthened to R12.42 in mid-March. This would've negated strengthening commodity prices world-wide. The price of copper, ferrochrome, gold and aluminium all rose during 2017. But - fortunately for South African producers of these commodities the rand weakened yet again, now trading in the R14 range. And that means all of these commo... ››› more

  • Why this common investment strategy won't make you rich
    Today I'm going to explain why using one of the most popular investment strategies to make money is a bad idea. This strategy is probably used by almost every financial advisor out there. Worse off, some even advise using this strategy to build wealth for your retirement. The problem is, it simply won't make you rich. Or even grow your wealth quickly. Let me explain… Editor&... ››› more

  • This is one of the most common investor mistakes
    Today I want to explain one of the biggest mistakes investor's make. It has nothing to do with what you invest in, where you invest or how much you invest. It goes much deeper than that. It's got to do with your emotions and behaviour. The fact is, every investor experiences it at some point. And if you keep doing it, you're guaranteed to lose a fortune. Let me explain…   ------... ››› more

  • The most important thing to look for when investing for dividends
  • The most important thing to look for when investing for dividends
    When you invest in shares there are two things that can make you money - capital appreciation as the share price rises. And dividends putting hard cash in your pocket. Most investors focus mostly on capital appreciation. But the fact is dividends can make you massive returns. If for instance you bought Adapt IT in 2009, you'd have paid 44c per share. Since then the company has paid out... ››› more

  • The next Bitcoin could make you a millionaire
  • On 1 January 2017, this cryptocurrency's price stood at around $8.24. At that time, its market cap was around $720 million. Fast-forward to today, its market cap has grown past $30 billion. But even better, its price has soared to around $322 - which is a 3,807% return compared to Bitcoin's 453% return this year. In other words, a R120 investment into this cryptocurrency on 1 January 2... ››› more

    The Top40 index is up 15.5% year to date, which is a result of Naspers and Richemont. In fact, if you strip out NPN and CFR, the Top40 index would be down 0.50%. We've had a buy on both shares this year, and remain invested. Global markets are working in tandem and hitting record highs, this week we have Federal Open Market Committee minutes and Mario Draghi, all eyes are on any indication... ››› more

  • I believe this is the only way to make big money from the stock market
    March 2009 - that was the first time I ever bought a share… It was Old Mutual. And while Old Mutual was a massive company, the 2008 financial crisis decimated it, and the share became a ‘penny stock'. I bought my first shares in the company for 603c, with the money I made from vacation work as a student at the mine I had a bursary with. I bought 990 shares with around R6,000. By No... ››› more

    PSG has pulled back to a good buying level around the R235 mark. We've been trading the R230/R270 range this year very well. When you buy PSG you get exposure to a number of companies, like Capitec, now one of South Africa's “big 5” and growing by over 100,000 clients per month. Through PSG, you also gain exposure to Curro and Studio, which has been unbundled from Curro and starts tradin... ››› more
