  • The JSE's top 20 "No money down" shares
  • What if I told you, that you could get a big business for free? You don't have to put money down, but you'd own a portion of a franchise store, a farm or a factory… Sounds too good to be true. But the fact is, right now there are scores of opportunities like this on the JSE. I call them “No money down shares”. Simply put, these are companies where if you pay for a portion of ... ››› more

  • Why there's never been a better time to buy small cap shares
  • Over the past three years the JSE has gone nowhere! On 4 July, 2014 the JSE All-Share Index stood at 52,060 points. By the end of 3 July 2016 the same index stood at 52,164. And yet it's PE is near an all time high of 19.94. This makes the index ridiculously ‘expensive' and the average investor extremely despondent, crying where's the value. But I'm hear to tell you, there's ... ››› more

  • I hope you don't get this phone call!
  • There are a few things with trading that worry me. The first is when the internet connection cuts out when I'm trying to get into a trade or when I modify my trading levels. Second, is when the market environment goes into a sideways range where no matter whether we buy or sell - we lose either way. And third, is when my subscribers write to me and tell me about the worst possible trading... ››› more

  • ETF's are taking over the world - but are they as safe as everyone says?
  • In a recent report from ETF.com data released shows that the US have had $250 billion worth of cash inflows into ETF's during 2017 alone! According to an estimate by The New Yorker, around 20 percent of the market in the US is made up out of JUST ETF's. And “When you factor in “closet indexing”—when individual or institutional investors pursue indexing strategies without declaring... ››› more

  • You have to “Go Small” to add big returns to your portfolio
  • As an advisor to the South African Investor board I deal with investors that are looking for long term returns that'll help them live, and retire securely. That means we typically look at companies like Vodacom, Naspers, Bidvest and the like. Large blue-chip shares that have been around for years, and will continue to be there for years to come. Recommending these large companies is th... ››› more

  • The most important investment decision you can make, in two minutes
  • Please don't let your portfolio fall because of this single mistake… In 2014, I got a mail from an investor: “Francois, I'm not investing in a single investment recommendation of yours again. I've bought Mr Price shares with my whole portfolio. And at the rate it's going now, I'll retire in a few short years. I bought Mr Price at R136 in February, and now that it's August, the sha... ››› more

  • The Year that was - The biggest winner of 2016 was the Rand!
  • 2016 has been a year many will quickly forget, but for the shock results of the Brexit vote and the US elections; it was a year where many cans were kicked down the road. Global growth remained benign and potential silver-linings have yet to gain material traction because of lingering uncertainties such as the future US foreign policy, the tensions in South East Asia, lingering debt problems i... ››› more

  • The JSE is overvalued, should I sell?
  • The JSE All-Share Index is just 10% off from its all-time high. It's sitting around the highest PE level of all time for the index, at 23.24. At the same time, US markets are at all-time highs, and interest rates are threatening to go up. With this in mind, I was recently asked by an investor, whether the JSE is overvalued and set for a massive correction. So, should you hold on or sel... ››› more

  • 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

  • How these penny shares grow profits by 30%, 50% while the JSE moves 1% for the year!
  • The JSE All Share Index is up 1% for the year so far. The Top 40 index, representative of the most ‘stable' shares on our market is down a miserable 2.25% since 29 December 2015. And our economy is struggling. It's fair to say that 2016's been a tough year. Many companies are losing money (or at least making smaller profits), and very few shares are up. But there are a select gro... ››› more

  • The world's next great investment megatrend
  • 89 million babies were born around the world this year. In the same time, 37 million people passed away. That means the world's population grew by more than 52 million people in only eight months! That's the equivalent of South Africa's population added to the world. Imagine that, an entire country gets added to the world every 8 months! And all of these people need an education,... ››› 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. Considering the South African economy is teetering on the edge of a recession, results haven't been as great as investors would've liked. 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

  • Nobody's talking about it, but Platinum excites me more than Gold right now!
  • The gold price hit $1,354. It's the first time that it's above $1,300 since 2014! That's big news. And since the Brexit, all you hear is how investors are fleeing to the safety of gold. But I'm much more excited about another precious metal right now. I'm talking about platinum of course… The platinum price started 2016 at $820/ounce. Today it's trading $280 higher at $1,100 per ounc... ››› more
