  • When the NEXT inevitable crash occurs, this may be the perfect safe haven investment
  • When the global Financial Crisis hit back in 2008, investors flocked to gold. In fact, gold achieved the highest return out of all assets. The same thing happened when September 9/11 happened in 2001. My point is, gold was generally the go-to “safe-haven investment when crisis hit. But if a major crash or recession had to happen tomorrow, do you think investors would flock to gold fo... ››› more

  • October - Not the scary month it's made out to be…
  • While October was the month we had Black Tuesday in 1929, Black Monday in 1987 and a big sell off in October 2008 post Lehman's collapse, it generally ends the month up.   Over the past 100 years the Dow and S&P have ended positive 62% of the time with an average gain of 0.4% but with heightened vola... ››› more

  • Where's the best place to invest your money right now?
  • “Francois, where should I take my money? ‘They' tell me to take as much as possible offshore right now. Is that the right place to invest?” With the three year return on the JSE sitting at a grand total of 9.49% many investors are asking me whether it is still relevant investing in the JSE. Perhaps inve... ››› more

  • Rand stages a comeback rally - take advantage of it!
  • The rand has been buoyed by tighter monetary policy in Turkey, Russia and Argentina. Our local inflation data assisted in the strength even though the Reserve banks held rates on Thursday. The Rand has gained over R1.30 against the Euro, USD and GBP in the past three weeks. Investors tend to panic and run for the exit all... ››› more

  • How you can make massive returns off other people's money
  • I have a number of interests in private businesses. One startup that I invested money in is about to pay off in a big way. Suddenly I'm getting calls from investors wanting in on the opportunity…. But mere months ago - when the startup was burning through capital in order to get its products market ready investors didn't even want to give it a second glance. They were saying that there'... ››› more

  • Dividends and discounts make this share a great buy
  • Following on the theme of buying shares at a discount, today's company is trading at a discount to its net asset value as well as paying over 6.5% in dividends. You will get paid to patiently wait for the company's share price to return to a premium to its net asset value (NAV). The biggest reason for the discount is that it failed to comply with credit regulations in the past. These issues... ››› more

  • This could spark Bitcoin's breakthrough as a mainstream currency
  • Forget about the much-anticipated Bitcoin ETF. Forget about the “big win for bitcoin” I mentioned last week. You see, there's even bigger news that could be a game-changer for bitcoin and cryptos. In short, Bitcoin could be on the verge of breaking through as a mainstream currency. And it's all thanks to a start-up company that's soon to be launched by one of the most powerful pl... ››› more

  • The best investing strategy to weather volatility
  • The rand lost 4% of its value in mere days last week. At the same time, between 13 and 15 August the JSE lost 4% of its value. As uncertainty at home and abroad causes this kind of volatility, there's a simple kind of investment that warrants a place in portfolios. I'm talking about dividend paying stocks. The appeal is simple, dividend payers can provide investors with tangible returns (... ››› more

  • The Real Secret to Stock Market Profits
  • Did you know in a 200-year period, nothing has come close to matching the long-term compounded returns of stocks? In a study conducted by University of Pennsylvania finance professor, Jeremy Siegel, showed that every $1 invested in: • Treasury Bills, grew to $5,061 • Bonds were worth $18,235 • Gold rose to $32.84 204 And stocks returned a phenomenal $12.7 million. But do... ››› more

  • The next six months will define the rise or fall of Bitcoin
  • We've seen almost every major financial institution in the world state that they either intend to start trading crypto, or that they already have. We've seen companies like Coinbase bringing in multimillion-dollar hedge funds into this market. We've seen regulators declare that bitcoin and Ethereum are not securities and regulations relaxed. And yet crypto prices continue to slide. But... ››› 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

  • This crypto soared 32,377% in 2017 - But here's why you should avoid it in 2018
  • Imagine if you made a 32,377% return in one year… It would've turned a R1,000 investment into R323,770! Well the incredible thing is one crypto managed to achieve exactly this in 2017. The crypto? Ripple's XRP coin - the third largest crypto by market cap today. But despite such an incredible run last year, here's why you must avoid it in 2018.

  • What to buy, sell and hold
  • Trump dialled down his trade war antagonism by pushing for less tariffs with Europe. This saw investors focus on other data which provided support for riskier assets like the Rand. Last week we had a positive BRICs summit, the ECB held interest rates steady, US advance GDP came out at 4.1% from 2.2% previously, and China indicated a willingness to ease monetary policy further to support domesti... ››› more

  • Avoid this ICO at all costs
  • In June, I revealed “The worst kind of crypto you can own” to my MoneyMorning readers. Now, if thought this was a bad crypto, you haven't seen anything yet. You see, recently, another new crypto has been making headlines, not globally, but interestingly, right here in South Africa. It's called SAFCOIN and it just launched an initial coin offering (ICO) exclusively to South African inv... ››› more

  • Why you should be accumulating Dischem
  • Even though President Trump hasn't slowed down on his “Trade War” rhetoric, indicating he would levy tariffs against another $500 billion of Chinese goods, global markets are pushing higher. It's doing this on the back of positive earnings releases. We're almost a fifth of the way through Q2 earnings season and so far, 87% of US companies are beating analyst's forecasts. When considering a... ››› more

  • Profit taking sees the JSE dip while global markets rally
  • The JSE was one of the few markets that ended last week lower. The Rand strengthened on the back of China being more passive in the “Trade War”. Commodity prices also pulled back last week causing the resources sector to impact the market performance. We've given up all the recent gains and are back in buying territory. SA equities are cheap when you compare the median P/E ratio of the All... ››› more

  • Viv Govender's found another investment gem
  • When a deal this good pops up, it must go out, no matter what the publishers say! Uncertainty spiked at the start of the year and it was very difficult to get good prices on guaranteed investments. Most financial institutions erred on the side of caution and charged extra for protection. Luckily, my persistent research and patience has paid off and we've found a diamond in the rough! ... ››› more
