  • Why I'm bullish on the Wescoal share price
  • On 29 September 2016 Wescoal announced it would issue 124,995,373 new shares to a BEE investor, for an amount of R211,410,862. At the time Wescoal's entire market cap was R440 million. So this is a big deal - it is nearly 50% of Wescoal's total share capital being added. Usually a deal that dilutes earnings as much as this one will, is a bad thing. Shareholders don't like it. But since... ››› more

  • 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

  • The top penny stocks to buy after this earnings season
  • Now that July's wrapped up, this year's second to last ‘earnings season' has come to an end.

In fact, 14 out of the last 25 companies to publish results have been negative growth. Nearly two out of every three companies are seeing shrinking profits or... ››› more

  • These are the best and worst penny shares in the mining sector
  • Between October 2015 and mid-January 2016 the JSE Resources index crashed 38%. Mining shares were out of favour more than they've ever been. Since then, the index has recovered some of these losses, becoming one of the best performing sectors on the JSE for 2016. In fact, since the resource index's January low, it's up 40% for the year so far! But that doesn't mean you can just up and ... ››› more

  • The 3 kinds of stocks you need to avoid on the JSE right now
  • I don't think there's a thing as the “perfect” stock. Yes there are stocks that demonstrate consistent profit growth, churn out cash flow and reward shareholders on a yearly basis. But every stock has its flaws. Whether it's way too expensive, over-hyped, worryingly cheap or just run out of steam, investors could easily fall for buying the a stock that looks attractive but ends up bust... ››› more

  • Don't let the “hottest tip” of the year leave you penniless
  • Yesterday I got an unexpected SMS from my cousin in Cape Town. She told me about a friend who sent her the “hottest” investment tip of the year so far. She asked me to urgently check my email to confirm this, because she only had a few hours to buy into the share. When I checked the email, I got a bit of a fright. She wasn't the only person in the thread. More than 300 people received ... ››› more

  • Beware: This ‘top' dividend paying ETF will cut its dividends in 2015…
  • ETFs are the greatest aren't they? They make it easy to start investing with as little as R250 a month.
