  • The investment secret to make double and triple digit gains in 2018
    Have you ever heard of ‘GARP' investing? No, I didn't make it up. It's actually a four decade-old investment strategy popularised by one of the most successful fund managers to ever live - Peter Lynch.

  • Three predictions for stock market success in 2018
    It's a new year and, as customary, I'm sharing a couple of insights that I believe will shape the stock market, our economy, and the world we see around us every day. 2017 was a year dominated by two themes. The first one being, politics, drove the South African economy, investor sentiment and our currency. The second was probably a symptom of the first. Because politics dominated ever... ››› more

  • Have we discovered the future of money?
    Did you know that the story of money is older than civilisation itself? That's right. Money is an “innovation” that's older than the wheel and, as old as fire. Originally when humans wanted to trade outside their tribe or villages, they needed something that everyone agreed had value. Something that was accessible. Enter “commodity money”. There were many kinds of commodity... ››› more

  • Complete downgrade averted as Moody's gives SA one last shot - with one to buy
    Last week South Africa side stepped the exclusion from the World Government Bond Index, as Moody's didn't downgrade its local currency. Instead, Moody's placed South Africa on Credit Watch. This is a period of up to 90 days where it critically evaluates any material changes and can downgrade SA at any-time. S&P downgraded SA, which sparked panicked selling of the rand after the JSE closed, but... ››› more

    Northam Platinum CEO, Paul Dunne said in a recent interview with MiningMX “There's been a lot of hype around battery-powered EVs, but these will not replace the internal combustion engine for a number of reasons.” Now I understand you ‘talk your book'. If you are a platinum miner, you want to ensure people know you are positive of the outlook for the industry you operate in. But it's... ››› more

  • Blockchain stocks deliver on the hype
    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

  • 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

  • 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

    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.

    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.

  • 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
