  • The Only Income Investment to Buy in 2019!
    Before Donald Trump escalated trade wars, which sent shockwaves through the markets, stocks were performing well overall. The major US indices like the Nasdaq and S&P500 were flying. Even the JSE All Share was showing good returns. From its lowest level to its highest, the JSE was up around 14%. A great comeback from 2018's negative return. However, while stocks were making all the ... ››› more

    Q. “The Q&A article last week on what the best markets to trade was excellent Timon. I've written them all down for my watch list.

My question is, what are the best crypto-currencies to trade and are you looking to trade them in the near future?”   A. Yes, I am most definitely looking to tr... ››› more

  • If you own investments in these two US sectors… Beware!
    Isn't it amazing how one man can send shockwaves through global equity markets, just through a tweet. 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. If precedent has taught... ››› more

  • You need to avoid this investment trap
    “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. Certainly there must be upside potential here?” Surely a company trading at a 74.5% discount to its assets and a PE of 6.59 on half year earnings is cheap, and a certain buy? Well, in some... ››› more

  • Investors aren't panicking, yet
    Investors have been banking profits and positioning their portfolios for an escalation in the “Trade Wars”. Panic and fear haven't gripped the market gauging by the increase in the Volatility Index (VIX) over the past few days but that could all change with further tit-for-tat tariff increases. Investors could generate significant returns waiting for the VIX to reach 25 before buying into ... ››› more

  • These two charts show the crypto boom is just getting started
    2019 is shaping up to be a stellar year for crypto investors. If you bought the two biggest cryptos - bitcoin and ethereum - at the beginning of 2019, you'd be sitting on gains of 63% and 29% respectively. That's more than double the returns of the S&P500 and the JSE All Share. But, cryptos are more than just about prices and gains. There are bigger things happening behind the ... ››› more

Behind the others are just two plain old goats… So, you choose door number one. The game show host goes to door number two, opens it, and reveals it's a goat. He gives you the opportunity to change your choice and choose door number three. Do you sta... ››› more

  • A new alternative energy to challenge battery operated cars is emerging
    Electric cars have been the only answer to reducing the world's dependence on oil and reducing carbon emissions. China specifically has led the charge in electric car sales in an effort to reduce its smog ridden cities. This has seen electric car sales in China surpass 1 million cars a year. Expectations are that China alone will sell more than 1.8 million electric cars in 2019 - but t... ››› more

Despite the massive growth, a big challenges exists… Marijuana is still illegal on a federal level. However, this isn't stopping US states from legalising medical and recreational marijuana.

  • When gold touches this level - buyers go crazy
    During the first quarter of 2019, my Red Hot Storm Traders banked two winning gold trades: A 47.77% gain in January and a 41.06% gain in February. This was all because gold was above a critical level, which confirmed it was in a strong uptrend. What's exciting is that, now we have an even bigger opportunity to continue profiting from the gold upside in the second quarter of 2019… ... ››› more

  • This single indicator predicts what the platinum and palladium prices will do
    Dear reader,     Earlier in 2019 I wrote about Palladium – telling investors the metal had just hit an all-time high. At $1,434.50 palladium had run 70% in the preceding months.   However I told investors that at these heights I wouldn’t put my cash in the metal but rather in a miner that produces the metal.   Since then Palladium hit $1,560 mere dollars off the tar... ››› more

    Last month in the South African Investor, I wrote about the world's most-feared recession indicator, the yield curve.   More specifically, if the yield curve is signalling an upcoming recession.     Now remember, the yield curve plots the interest rates of the 10-year US Treasury note (long-term rate) and the 3-month US Treasury bill (short term rate).   When short-term i... ››› more

    The Steinhoff debacle hurt a lot of investors. If you held Steinhoff shares before the crash - you'd be down around 97% on your money today. And the chances of ever recovering all the losses are close to zero… But what you should know is that situations like this can be avoided. There are at least four clues to follow that are warnings signs of an impending disaster like that of ... ››› more

  • Is Clicks' dividend safe? The answer lies in three simple charts
    The only way to live a worry-free retirement these days is to have steady streams of income coming in, month after month. Without income you can count on, you're dependent on your retirement annuity to get by. And that's not a spot you want to be in… That's why, part of my job as Real Wealth editor, is to find investments that consistently pay investors dividends - as well as - investmen... ››› more
