Stock Market

  • Is this the next “Steinhoff”?
  • Back in 2015 I made a quick 56% return from Trustco Holdings. Back then, the share looked like it had a lot of promise. And had I held on, I could've made even bigger gains as the share continued rising - now sitting at R10 a share from its 2015 lows of 255c. But my reasons for selling the share were, and are still valid. The CEO sold personal assets to the company under questionable cond... ››› more

  • Market survives “Risk Event Storm”
  • 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

  • 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?

  • "It's not often I give up details on two great shares to buy
  • 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… They don't invest in hundreds of businesses and ‘diversify' their holdings by industry, country and market… They tend to... ››› more

  • The Ramaphoria optimism has not resulted in any tangible results in Q1
  • 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

  • What do pigeons, drug addiction and the stock market have in common
  • What if I told you many investors are addicts? Just like junkies are addicted to heroin… Or gamblers addicted to casinos… Or even, socialites addicted to social media… The stock market is the drug and investors are addicted to it. You see it's all got to do with... ________________________________________   Your Free Book is on hold   We’ve already ... ››› more

  • The “Endowment Effect” just may be the reason you'll fail as a trader
  • Did you know that you place higher value to things that you own? To explain this, Pros. Kahneman, Knetsch & Thaler conducted a popular study with 77 participants at Simon Fraser University. These participants were placed into two groups. Group #1: Were given mugs (in a way they owned them). Group #2: Were not given mugs but were asked to price the mugs. Can you guess who priced the ... ››› more

  • Is the JSE going through a correction or a crash?
  • Turn on Bloomberg and all you'll see is red… The Dow Jones Stock Exchange crashed over 1,000 points dropping 4.15% in a day. The S&P tanked 100 points dropping 3.75% in a day. And the Nasdaq fell 275 points dropping 3.90% in a day. Come back to our local stock market and you'll see a big market drop. Should you start to panic with your investments or will this pass.

  • The JSE's ‘honeymoon' phase is taking shares higher, how long will it last?
  • I can remember my honeymoon like yesterday. We were crazy in love. And for months afterward this euphoric phase continued. I could make no mistake in her eyes, nor she in mine. Everything was perfect. 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

  • How we used Spar to bag a hefty 28.33% gain in just 2 days!
  • A big factor in South African markets over the past few months has been the volatility, and my research indicated the retail share profits would jump. To me this indicated a profit opportunity. If the market was about to rise, then why not play according to those rules? In mid November we had an opportunity to get into a real quality offering stock. BREAKTHROUGH: Do not make any commi... ››› more

  • How to profit from the ALSI40's ‘Blue Diamond'
  • If you ask any trader how trading is going on the JSE, you'll hear the same thing. “It's damn difficult.” Or “The JSE can't decide on direction” So whether you buy or sell, chances are you've got it wrong! But if you know how to read a ‘Blue Diamond', you would know how to profit in this environment. Let me show you what I mean… I’m pr... ››› 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

  • Why I'm calling a buy on the JSE, even though many call it expensive
  • “The JSE is too expensive, rather buy these offshore stocks”, if read this headline, and variations of it many times in the past year. Yet, my Red Hot Penny Shares readers would've banked an average gain on shares we sold of 22.21% in 2016. Whilst there are still calls to drop the JSE and put your money elsewhere I am optimistic. I believe 2017 can be just as good, or better, than ... ››› more
