  • Three ways to identify the ‘Double Your Money' shares from value traps
  • What if I told you there's a way to find shares that consistently outperform the market? Sounds too good to be true. But the fact is, fourteen shares I invested in between 2010 and 2016 provided me with returns outstripping 100% each…. In their 2013 paper titled “Fundamental Based Market Strategies”, Dr Angelo Aspris (research leader), Sean Foley, (researcher), Nigel Finch, and Z... ››› more

  • The Double-Your-Money stock plays your advisors will never tell you about…
  • The mainstream media will only tell you about the biggest of the big shares. You'll often hear about Naspers, Richemont and BHP Billiton. And fund managers will make these big shares the centre points of their investment funds. That is - the Balanced Fund your advisor will suggest you invest in for retirement so you don't need to take much risk. But that means you can expect 9%, 10% and if... ››› more

  • I believe this is the only way to make big money from the stock market
  • March 2009 - that was the first time I ever bought a share… It was Old Mutual. And while Old Mutual was a massive company, the 2008 financial crisis decimated it, and the share became a ‘penny stock'. I bought my first shares in the company for 603c, with the money I made from vacation work as a student at the mine I had a bursary with. I bought 990 shares with around R6,000. By No... ››› more

  • Two to Buy and none to sell this week!
  • PSG has pulled back to a good buying level around the R235 mark. We've been trading the R230/R270 range this year very well. When you buy PSG you get exposure to a number of companies, like Capitec, now one of South Africa's “big 5” and growing by over 100,000 clients per month. Through PSG, you also gain exposure to Curro and Studio, which has been unbundled from Curro and starts tradin... ››› more

  • One way to find growth in shares when the market's going nowhere
  • In the past six months, a little known JSE listed company, Insimbi, is up nearly 50%. And on 26 September 2017, it announced its revenue increased 247%, and earnings per share increased 142%. Growing profits by as much as 142% in an economy that's in recession is nearly impossible. But Insimbi achieved this - how you ask? Well, the company made a smart acquisition at the end of... ››› more

  • There's no trading statement from Rolfes yet, what does this mean?
  • Throughout 2016 and early 2017 Rolfes had a great run, up from R2.76 to a high of R5. But the share has suddenly dropped in the past two weeks. A number of investors and analysts attribute this to the fact that the company hasn't released a trading statement. So what does a trading statement have to do with share price?   The JSE requires companies to release trading statemen... ››› 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

  • 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 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 one income investment that pays you FOUR times more than the JSE
  • These days, investing for attractive income returns is extremely hard to come by. Money market funds at most pay you 7.3%. The average share on the JSE is only paying investors around 2.9% in dividends per year. And once you factor in inflation, you're basically getting nothing! But there is a way, you can invest for income and receive a return… That beats every money market ... ››› 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

  • Receive dollar-based performance through structured products
  • Since my last article on the subject of structured products I have received a number of enquiries from readers asking for more information. Due to the overwhelming response I decided to do this follow-up article and go over the most frequently asked questions. First, for those who may not have read the original, here is a brief recap. I discussed a currently available structured product with ... ››› more

  • Moving swiftly along - Three to buy
  • A week of heightened protests has ended and the ANC Cadre are holding the fort, for now. Their confidence masks the growing dissension from all sides, including members of its own party, eventually pressure will come to bear. Fitch followed S&P in downgrading SA, but again the reaction was relatively muted. Clearly the market had been preparing for this eventuality. Of more concern is that som... ››› 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • The fastest growing investment sectors in South Africa - and where I'm putting my money
  • Over the past three years, the JSE's Financial index would've made you around 7%. The JSE's Industrial's index would've returned around 27%, and had you invested in the Resources Index, you'd have lost a whopping 38% over the same period. Clearly, you need to pay attention to where you're investing if you want to make money in today's tough market. So, as we're heading into the last qu... ››› more
