    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

  • You need to think twice before betting on a rising oil price again…
    WTI Crude oil hit a low of $22 a barrel in early 2016. It then rose for much of the year, ending the year at $53. But since the start of 2017, the oil price is down around 12% to $46.60. So, with the oil price at lows, should you look at investing in the oil sector again? Is demand growing fast enough or is supply still too high? *****************************   Get everyt... ››› more

It has averaged around R16,400 per ounce for 2017, with a spike to R17,600 in April following Pravin Gordhan's axing.

  • 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. That's because it has unique physical properties for which there is just no substitute - something its biggest consumers lose quite a bit of sleep over. It's 15 times more rare than platinum... and 30 times more rare than gold. Rea... ››› more

  • South Africa's deep mines are dying - but these companies are set to profit big time!
  • South Africa's deep mines are dying - but these companies are set to profit big time!
    South Africa sits with the ‘achievement' of having 8 out of the world's ten deepest mines. While this is clearly an achievement in engineering - it's a problem specifically for our gold mining industry. Production costs have skyrocketed, accidents in the deep mines make it even more difficult to profit. In fact, in the 1970's South Africa produced as much as 80% of the world's gold,... ››› more

  • Two junior miners to ride out the weak rand
  • The Rand has crashed to R16.70 a dollar. On 30 November 2015 a Bloomberg report speculated the rand could hit R20 to a dollar. Then on 8 January 2016 a Fin 24 report again reiterated the R20 to a dollar level for 2016 and Cees Bruggemans, a well known economist predicts we could see R22.50 to the dollar before 2018! In short, if you're not investing in rand hedge shares you're losing mone... ››› more

  • How to profit from the glut of oil
  • In the middle of last year, the oil price started its decent. This year, the price of oil has struggled to get above $60 a barrel. In the past when demand for oil ebbed, producers pulled back production to help the price out. But this time around, producers continue to pump oil out of the ground. This leaves the industry with a bit of a problem. What to do with all the excess oil? But this p... ››› more
