Wescoal's share price is up from 160cps on 19 April 2018, to 220c today.
That's a 37.5% increase in two months!
And I'm expecting more upside.
You see, as I recently told my Red Hot Penny Shares readers, Wescoal should hit fourfold production growth in 2018/2018 compared to 2016.
And even though Wescoal is still 19% below its 2017 high, there's more than enough evidence to suggest the ... ››› more
Last week was a busy week with the market sailing through a gauntlet of central bank meetings, escalating trade tensions and a historic meeting between the US and North Korea.
Surprisingly the JSE held up relatively well buoyed by a weaker Rand. We've also seen volatility (measured by the VIX) drop back towards 12, a level that signals the market might not be pricing in the risk of a “Trump ... ››› more
This week is full of event risk; the US interest rates announcement, the market expects a 25-basis point increase, with an 85% probability, US and North Korea summit, US CPI, UK unemployment, ECB committee meeting and Italian policy uncertainty.
All of these could push investors towards less risky assets in developed markets.
Short term traders should focus on Rand sensitive shares as volati... ››› more
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.

Extremely wealthy people don't invest in ETF's. They don't buy properties from estate agent listings… They buy into private deals. They buy businesses before they even list on the stock market…
And, they typically do the opposite of what textbooks tell you to do…

Q1 GDP coming out at -2.2%, the worst since Q1 2009, reflects that the Ramaphoria optimism has not resulted in any tangible results and likely kept investors complacent.
The rand strength is hard to explain and perhaps it will weaken while investors and portfolio managers digest the impact of these GDP figures on their investments.
Look to pick up the quality rand hedges that have been sol... ››› more
Look at the graph below…
It may look like your typical graph of a company's share price, but it's not. And if it was, you'd better be worried.
But this graph actually depicts what a shrinking stock market looks like.

Okay. So you've got in, bought some cryptos, hopefully seen your profits increase and now cashed out for a sizeable gain.
The only thing left to do, before you go spending all that money, is pay your taxes.

Then suddenly reality struck. Our first big fight after getting married.
And suddenly we realized being married is tough, and the good times go hand in hand with the tough ones…... ››› more
I'm sure you've heard it before - but you make money on a property the day you buy it.
That's because a good price means the rental income yield will be attractive, and it means your selling price can be competitive - whilst still raking in a profit.
That's why your homework before buying a property - and the negotiation process to buy the property are the single most important things you ... ››› more

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…

I bought my first rental property at the age of 22. Luckily it turned out a great investment.
But since then I've learnt a lot.
Truth be told, there's a heap of things I wish someone had told me about when I first got started in property back then.
The time, the money it could've saved me... I sure as heck would have gone a lot further a lot faster if I'd had a clue about some things.
