For the past year I've been telling investors small cap companies are selling for a fraction of their true worth - despite the pandemic and SA's economic woes.
And with the small cap index jumping 17% in the past three months, it certainly looks like the momentum is building.
In fact, in the past week I've noticed an institutional research report being released on a small company I've been... ››› Read more
Q. "Hi Timon, I see Sasol was another big gainer that helped drive the JSE last week.
Do you have any information on what drove up the price and if you'll be sending a trade with Red Hot Storm Trader?"
A. Thank you Gerhardt!
Yes, we saw Sasol rise over 3.6% last week. Well spotted!
In fact, before we get to Sasol, it’s important to note we saw the oil pric... ››› Read more
There were many casualties of the Covid-19 Crisis…
Businesses going under, people losing jobs, economies closing down…
But a major casualty for investors were dividends.
Many companies opted to not pay dividends this year. Some cut their payments down by 50% or more.
And while, you can argue it was the right decision for some companies, it was investors who suffered.

The JSE All Share Index (ALSI) has started 2021 on a strong note.
It climbed to the highest levels, we've seen in almost three years
And what's strange is, it happened during the 2nd COVID-19 Wave.
However, it was not local stocks that led to this JSE rally.
So, what was it?
In this article I'm going to share three main factors why the JSE is rallying and why I expect i... ››› Read more
Small cap stocks have had a tough time in recent years. While the underlying businesses in many cases did really well - their share prices didn't.
Between March 2016 and March 2020 the Small Cap Index was down 44%.
In the last 6 months though, the Small Cap Index is up 25%, erasing a great portion of its past losses.
And thus far 2021 looks like a scorcher for small companies.

Q. “Hi Timon, I need your help.
I realised in 2020 that I really need to find a second income… Lockdown has put a major strain on me and I've decided to learn to trade with you and invest with Joshua.
Can you please tell me some trading resolutions, I can set for myself to start off on the right foot?”
A. I’m so glad you asked this question. I absolutely love kicking of... ››› Read more
The Crypto market is FLYING right now…
It just broke through the $1 trillion value mark, which is an amazing feat in just over a decade.
But what's stolen the headlines over the past month is the meteoric rise of bitcoin.
The number one crypto has rallied to nearly $40,000 today.
And it’s soared over 146% since I recommended it to Real Wealth readers in November 2020’s issue.

Welcome to the first prediction article for the year.
And what better way to start, than to see where our currency is heading.
Now if you've been following my rand predictions from last year, you'd know that I expected the rand to strengthen from R16.50 down to R15.00 against the US dollar.
If you missed the article, you can catch up here...

Between May 2015 and May 2018, the JSE Small Cap Index went nowhere. And between May 2018 and May 2020 it dropped 44.68%.
Since then however the Small Cap Index is up 29%.
That's a huge rally in just six months.
But here's the thing. It's not over yet. The small companies in this index aren't even back to the levels they traded, at the start of 2020. Never mind their 2018 highs…

Right now, all of the popular DeFi projects are built on top of Ethereum.
In fact, if you look at the top 100 cryptos by market cap, most of them are built on top of Ethereum.
But as you may know, Ethereum doesn't deal well with massive network demand just yet. (That's part of the reason Ethereum 2.0 is so hotly anticipated.)
And so, transaction fees have gone through the roof. It curr... ››› Read more
