That's what investors have to deal with when it comes to US President Donald Trump and his trade wars. What's worse, there's no telling whether we've already witnessed the highest points of tension between the US and China in the battle over international trade.

    “Francois - AEEI shares look really attractive. The company's interim earnings showed a profit of 38.67cps and the company's net asset value is a whopping R10 - while the share price is a mere R2.55.

  • Investors aren't panicking, yet
    Investors have been banking profits and positioning their portfolios for an escalation in the “Trade Wars”.
