Electricity is fundamental to the way we live our lives. You simply can't live without it. Just consider the disastrous effect of load shedding this past week.
Roads in chaos, stockpiles of food rotting in refrigerators and many downstream services just grinding to a halt.
And yet, if you look at the big picture… And, I'm talking the development of mankind “big picture”, we've only h... ››› Read more
There are 322 shares on the JSE with market capitalisations of lower than R5 billion. These shares (bar a few ETFs and Preference shares) we can call ‘small caps'.
These are the smaller shares on the JSE that don't fit into the Top 40, or the Mid Cap indices.
We can further segment these shares - looking only at PENNY SHARES. These are small caps with share prices below R10. Of these sha... ››› Read more
Q. "Further to your offer, I am considering purchasing the MATI Trader System Programme and the Forex Profit Box.
I am a lifetime member-do I qualify for any additional discounts on these two programmes?"
A. There are no special offers for both trading programmes as already they are at very affordable prices compared to most trading programmes which can normally cost from R15,000 up ... ››› Read more
In November's issue of the South African Investor, I warned readers about two types of “danger” shares lurking on the JSE.
One of these types is called the “High-Yielder”.
Simply these are shares that sit on suspiciously high dividend yields.
You've probably heard me speak about these “income-traps” before, but in the South African Investor, I went further and reveale... ››› Read more
It's that time of year again…
Just like children eagerly wait in anticipation for Santa to deliver presents to them, so do investors.
Investors are waiting for the arrival of stock market profits during Christmas time as well.
This is all because of the Santa Claus rally which is, right now, flooding the mainstream media.
Go to Google, Bloomberg, Business Times and you'll see big ... ››› Read more
If you've been following the news, you'll know that Moody's recently changed its outlook for South Africa to negative. That means our sovereign debt is one step away from ending up in the dustbin.
If that happens, it'll have far reaching consequences for SA Inc. and your locally-held savings and investments.
This isn't something you should take lightly.
You need to protect your hard-ea... ››› Read more
If you hold property stocks, or one of the big four supermarket chains you need to listen up…

Q. “I keep seeing special offers for signing up for Forex and trading brokers. I don't want to make a mistake and choose the wrong one. Do you have a list of requirements to make sure I choose the best broker for me?”

My social media platforms have also been filled with advertisements from brokers that are offering different ‘Black... ››› Read more
The Rand has strengthened against the majors over the past few weeks, but it has lost momentum and can't break below a key support level.
We have our third quarter GDP numbers out at 11h30.
With trade war uncertainty that hasn't abated and the VIX (aka the fear gauge) climbing from below 12 to above 14, we should see the Rand weaken against the majors over the next week or two.

This is sad but you need to know.
Today, I am taking yet another company off my trading watchlist.
Since June we've seen this telecommunications giant' share price crash from R100 down to R46.00 per share.
That's a 54% sharp drop which signals MAJOR red flags when it comes to trading.
In today's article, we'll go into four reasons why Telkom is getting killed, where i... ››› Read more
