  • Are the JSE's small caps good buys - or not?
  • Are the JSE's small caps good buys - or not?
    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... ››› more

  • Last week, I warned investors about this “income-trap” and it just crashed 31%!
    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... ››› more

  • Looking to trade overseas? Make sure your broker is backed by these authorities

  • A shortcut to uncover the world's best businesses
  • A shortcut to uncover the world's best businesses
    You can spend a lot of time searching for stocks to buy. You can study for hours and learn how to analyse stock charts and company's balance sheets. You can spend hours going over financial statements. But if you're like a lot of people, you don't have the interest or the time. You've got a job and a family, and they keep you busy. The good news is there's a shortcut around doing all t... ››› more

  • Really… You're telling me to invest in bonds and stash my cash?
  • Really… You're telling me to invest in bonds and stash my cash?
    While it may have been just another ordinary Thursday afternoon to you and me, for eight South Africans sitting around a table in a small boardroom in Pretoria, things looked very different. These eight people held the fate of the country in their hands. Call things right, and they may just put SA's ailing economy back on track. Call things wrong, and they could decimate the rand, stifle g... ››› more

  • What you need to know about stock buyouts
    JSE listed stocks are selling at their cheapest levels in a decade. And that's created an opportunity for internationally listed, and private equity companies to make a mint. You see, these companies borrow money internationally at 3%, 4% or 5% interest. They then buy these South African companies that are selling cheaply and the dividends they receive from them are enough to repay their b... ››› more

  • Is the JSE losing its monopoly?
  • Is the JSE losing its monopoly?
    For almost 130 years the JSE was the only stock exchange in South Africa. But as of a couple of years ago that changed when three new exchanges were given stock exchange licences. In 2019 the JSE has seen 21 companies de-list. Digging a little deeper, it's important to take note of what's been happening with the competition…   All three of these JSE competitors are growing ... ››› more

    While you're enjoying the summer sun and clear skies back in SA paradise… I'm afraid I'm not. I'm trying to keep warm sitting inside a local restaurant in Greece with a cup of hot chocolate while I search for my next trade. And surprise, surprise, cocoa popped up on my radar… Here are three reasons why I'm buying cocoa and where I expect it to head next. _____________________... ››› more

  • Up 60% in three months - Jubilee's share price keeps rising
  • Up 60% in three months - Jubilee's share price keeps rising
    Jubilee Metals group is up more than 60% since mid-August 2019. Back then the share price was at a low of around 51c. Today it's at 90c. So what caused this meteoric rise in share price in such a short time? Well, Jubilee is a tiny JSE listed metals and mining company. But instead of digging holes in the ground it digs through old mine dumps - taking every last bit of valuable metal ou... ››› more

  • The next “High-yield investment trap” you must avoid now
  • The next “High-yield investment trap” you must avoid now
    In April 2019, I warned investors about Rebosis - A JSE listed property company that had a dividend yield of 57%. You see, at the time, a yield this high was very unusual for a company listed in SA. So I warned investors not to fall for this “high yield investment trap” And, since then, the company cut its dividend completely and its shares have plummeted from 162c to 32c - around an ... ››› more

  • My first gold CRASH prediction for 2019
  • My first gold CRASH prediction for 2019
    Normally, when I write about gold it's because I expect the price to rally to new highs. This is because gold has been on a continuous rally since October 2018. And four out of five times, since September 2018, my Red Hot Storm Traders have closed four winners out of five gold related trades banking them gains of over 154% accumulated gains. Today is different. You see, for the firs... ››› more

  • The #1 way to avoid rand volatility on any money you make overseas
  • The #1 way to avoid rand volatility on any money you make overseas
    If you, or your business, receive regular payments from abroad, you have to be pretty annoyed with the rand. After all, it's one of the most volatile currencies in the world. Which is pretty frustrating when you consider the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) forces you to convert any money you receive from abroad into rand within 30 days of you getting it - or sends your money back. But he... ››› more

  • Is this the catalyst that'll send gold to new all-time highs?
    In October 2019 the US Federal Reserve Bank announced that instead of shrinking its balance sheet by $50 billion a month it is now PRINTING $60 billion worth of money extra per month! That's right… The bank was in the process of unwinding the nearly $4 trillion worth of money it printed to get the US economy going following the 2008 financial crisis. Now it is printing more money each mo... ››› more
