Moody's believes in the Ramaphosa Rouse
Late Friday night Moody's released its rating for South Africa and reaffirmed its sovereign debt rating at investment grade.

It even improved its outlook from negative to stable, but stated policy ineffectiveness could “… undermine confidence, growth and social cohesion, with inevitable consequences for the country’s balance sheet”.
The Monetary Policy Committee is expected to decrease interest rates by 0.25% on Thursday due to inflation remaining subdued.
This will give indebted consumers a welcomed boost. Retail stocks and banks that have pulled back, after a strong rally, present an opportunity now.
Last week’s movers and shakers… 

One to Buy
Naspers: Building Cash reserves for Organic Growth
The enquiry into Facebook has seen a sell-off in all social media stocks lately and with Naspers more than 25% lower from levels last year, we see an opportunity at these levels.
The share is trading at an almost 40% discount to its SOTP value and Management have sold down its Tencent stake by 2% to raise cash. This is to drive organic growth, and unlock value in existing ecommerce businesses and ultimately push to reduce the discount to NAV.
We’ve been invested in Naspers for a while and see the current pull back as an opportunity to get into this investment or top up an underweight position.
Buy below R3,200 with an interim target of R5,000
