In Wednesday's Q&A, I received the following question.
“Could you please provide a few crypto currency companies that pay dividends?”
When I gave an answer, this made me think…
Could crypto investing be the future of passive income?
I realised that with the number of crypto currencies that are distributing dividends now days - I believe YES!
And in this article, I am goin... ››› Read more
Almost everything sold off big earlier this year. But after that, one US sector was the first to hit new highs again.
And it did so in April.
Since then, this sector's uptrend has been accelerating.
In fact, stocks in this sector continue to shatter old "new high" records almost daily. They've been on an impressive rally - up more than 45% since bottoming in March.
Despite this… ... ››› Read more
2020 has been one hell of a year. Coronavirus has ravaged most markets and yet certain stock markets have hit record highs.
Whatever the reason for the run up, the obvious divergence of share prices from the underlying reality seems to be all too apparent to professional investors.

The economy is opening up again following lockdown.
Restaurants and hotels are opening their doors again, so it might sound like a good idea to take a bet on these companies share prices recovering quickly now…

The global stock market indices continue to rally, with a handful of companies contributing to the positive performance since the march lows.
And while the anecdote says, “a rising tide lifts all boats”, this isn't the case. Many sectors in the market are just bobbing up and down and not moving decidedly higher. These overlooked companies offer value, still 20% or more below their pre Covi... ››› Read more
Back in 2018, India outlawed “any service in relation to virtual currencies”. And if you were dabbling in cryptos, you could face prison time.
The original ban was imposed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), which clearly feared crypto would undermine its authority.

The US economy is in the deepest recession in living memory.
Also, the US Federal rate has dropped from 2.25%, taking the borrowing interest rate to 0.25%.
And yet, in the last quarter, the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 have baffled the world having the best quarterly rallies since 1998.

This week, sit-down restaurants once again opened their doors to the public.
They opened under a cloud of restrictions. But they're open!
This must be a welcome relief to so many private restauranteurs and small business investors. Because, while they can't serve alcohol, offer a buffet and or hand you a menu (menus will have to be replaced by “no-touch” options), they can at least sta... ››› Read more
