Eskom

  • A Ten-Fold growth opportunity sitting right in front of you thanks to Eskom's coal cliff
  • In May 2018 I told investors about Eskom's impending coal supply shortage, the Eskom Coal Cliff. For years Eskom hasn't invested in new coal mines, and it hasn't been willing to sign new contracts with large mining companies. Whilst diversification of supply is a good idea, the fact remains there are only a handful of miners that can supply the massive volumes that Eskom requires to keep its... ››› more

  • Why did THIS penny share have a record sell off on 13 August 2018?
  • On 13 August Wescoal, a small coal miner on the JSE, had sales equaling to 3.5 million shares for the day. This is roughly equal to 18 times the average shares traded per day - for the last year! Clearly there was major interest in the company… And, considering that volume trade in the company is 30% higher since July than it has been for the past year you'd be right to guess there's so... ››› more

  • Eskom's coal drive boosts miners - this one is set to benefit most
  • Eskom said earlier this month at its State of the System update it got National Treasury approval to embark on a major coal procurement. All in all Eskom needs to lock in about 85% of its primary energy requirements, which is in excess of 100 million tons of coal per year. At the same time, the price of export coal has soared. In short, this situation is a massive positive for coal miners.... ››› more

  • The Eskom Coal Cliff - A Gift you shouldn't waste
  • There are two approaches to making money from the markets. The well-trodden path. The path almost everyone seems to take. The one that grinds out a decent return over the course of a life. Safety first. If you're patient, if you're willing to wait 30 or 40 years for a meaningful return on your capital… that is the path for you.

  • Get your budget ready for another Eskom price hike
  • If you're celebrating that we're almost through winter and had no load-shedding, I have some bad news for you. You and I might have had an “uninterrupted” power supply this winter but it's going to cost our pockets, big time! According to an article in the City Press newspaper this weekend, “The economy is set for a shock from the combined blows of Eskom's move to hike the cost of tw... ››› more

  • How this pensioner got off the grid and saved R18,540 in the first year
  • Eskom's admitted that it's struggling to keep the lights on. Existing power stations don't produce enough power to support demand. The coal industry and leading mining media are not convinced that Eskom will get enough coal to run its power stations. When this happens, the blackouts we know so well will get worse. And we'll be paying Eskom even more because tariffs are constantly increasing.... ››› more

  • Consumers could face another hefty hike to electricity tariffs if Eskom gets its way
  • It looks like another tariff hike could be looming for electricity users. Eskom has applied to the National Energy Regulator of South African (NERSA) for approval to raise a shortfall. This could see a double digit rise to electricity tariffs from next year. Let's take a closer look at what's going on…   Eskom is seeking to recoup R22.8 billion   Today, Eskom applied to th... ››› more

  • WHY isn't the South African Government doing this?
  • Throughout my journey in London the one thing I noticed is there's tons of construction happening every day. Everywhere you look, you'll see massive cranes, construction workers and buildings being revamped. My first thought was that surely with all this construction, you'd need to have powerful electricity grid. Back in South Africa, where power outages are basically a common occurrence, ... ››› more

  • South Africans will have to put up with load shedding until 2017
  • As 2015 continues, South Africans have had to contend with more than their fair share of load shedding. Whilst Eskom battles to get on top of its maintenance programme and bring new power plants online, power cuts have become an unsavoury normality. And it's not going to end anytime soon. Let's take a closer look… South Africans will have to contend with load shedding for another... ››› more

The Public Investment Corporation (PIC) purchased the shares at a significant discount. The government sold the holding to raise money for cash-strapped Eskom.

  • The energy regulator vetoes Eskom's bid to raise tariffs
  • Yesterday, the National Energy Regulator of SA (NERSA) announced it was rejecting Eskom's application to raise tariffs. Not surprisingly, many have welcomed the regulator's decision. Let's take a closer look at the reasons why NERSA rejected the application… NERSA weren’t happy about a number of aspects in Eskom’s application NERSA says that Eskom didn’t show “the savings ... ››› more

  • Government failures could offer you a potential opportunity to profit
  • As a South African, we're tired of waking up every day and reading the comedy politicians spew out. In some way it's very entertaining. But in another way, it's very worrying that these are the people that lead our country on a daily basis. It's extremely worrying that we have government officials who have no clue what they're doing. Yet we still have people standing up and delivering the... ››› more

  • Is there a saving grace or will Eskom's power grid fail completely?
  • This Saturday I was in the Eikestad mall in Stellenbosch, as I was walking alongside the masses of shoppers the inevitable happened. Eskom cut the power and two and a half hour of load shedding started. The mall went semi dark. More than three quarters of the shops closed. And only a couple of larger stores with backup power kept their doors open. What made me take notice of this event wa... ››› more

  • The craziest thing Eskom's ever done - and the one 106% profit opportunity it presents
  • “There is no crisis with the supply of coal to Eskom.” These are the words of Brian Molefe, Eskom's new acting CEO in an interview with MiningMX. Clearly he's unaware of the fact that Glencore is busy closing down its 10 million tonne a year Optimum Coal operations… Or perhaps he's forgotten about the fact that a huge amount of Eskom's long term coal agreements are coming to an end ... ››› more

  • NERSA will reveal whether Eskom can hike tariffs yet again at the end of June
  • Yesterday, the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (NERSA) announced that it will reveal its decision on Eskom's request for another tariff hike. Eskom has already implemented tariff hikes this year, though some of these don't come into effect until 1 July. If the new tariff hike request gains approval, it will see consumers coming under further strain. Let's take a closer look at w... ››› more

  • The worst might not be over for the rand, it could hit R12.50/$
  • The rand has taken another knock, sending it around 1% weaker against the dollar. This was thanks to a positive data release out of the US. And it could get worse for the local currency in the months ahead.
