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…

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
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
Imagine investing R100,000 in a company and receiving over R600,000 in dividends alone…
Or investing the same amount and getting back nearly R200,000 just in dividends…
Now that's serious income that could guarantee a comfortable retirement. Now imagine owning six of these shares right now…
I'd call that the ‘Ultimate Paycheque' retirement.
And as I said, I've identified si... ››› more
Early in February this year, I sent out a prediction on the Brent crude oil price and why I expected it to hit $76.60.
Right now, the oil price is on par with the prediction as, last week, it rose above the $70 mark.
But something has changed…
In fact, I expect the Brent Crude price to rise even higher than I ever imagined. This is all thanks to Opec, five countries and a promising c... ››› more
I doubt you've ever considered whether you're more of a Lion or a Rhino.
However, these two animals are not only part of our beautiful big five, but illustrate important traits about the way we think and impact our ability to make successful betting predictions. “Lions know many things, while Rhino’s know one big thing!”

On 28 March 2019 Argent Industrial announced it bought R11.5 million of its own shares back.
Rolfes Technology Holdings directors have also been on the acquisition road.
On 2 April Chris Seabrooke bought R2.3 million worth of shares in the company, and then on 9 April CEO, Richard Buttle, bought R572,764 shares back in the company.
Then there's Santova directors that have bought R13.4 mil... ››› more
Right now, there's one JSE listed company who has a dividend yield of 57%.
That's unheard of in JSE listed companies. But it's true.
In fact, it could be one of, if not the highest dividend yield I've ever come across from a JSE listed company.
Just consider this…
The JSE All Share's dividend yield is just over 3%. This means, the company has a yield nearly 20x higher than the av... ››› more
Over 90 days has passed for 2019, and the JSE is already up over 8% for the year.
This was mainly due to the ever-rising resource stocks, which make up a big percentage and weight of the JSE Top 40.
In fact, my Red Hot Storm Traders have managed to bank over 200% gains on six winning resource stocks this year alone.
If you missed this first quarter of profits, you have nothing to wo... ››› more
Take a moment to look at following logos:
Behind these logos are some of the strongest, blue-chip companies on the planet.
These global companies have such a broad reach that even today, at the tip of Africa, you’ll likely recognize some, if not most, of the brands.

Right now Capitec shares trade at R1,384.
But what if I told you that you could get hold of these shares - and benefit from their upwards movement - at a discount of 20%?
My guess is this sounds like a great opportunity?
In fact, if you could get a share like Capitec - but end up paying as much as 20% less, why would you not jump at the opportunity?
Well, I've uncovered scores of t... ››› more
It's no secret that if you are investing for your retirement, you want to have income producing stocks in your portfolio.
And by income producing, we mean shares that pay consistently high dividends.
But looking at the dividend yield alone, may show x but it could mean y….
Instead I want to show you a far more RELIABLE way to calculate the real dividend yield, so that you can invest... ››› more
Let's just get it out of the way immediately, Naspers is a great company.
It really is.
I am in no way a Naspers bear. But I am a cautious bull.
I do not, for one second, think Naspers will pull a Steinhoff, Mediclinic, Aspen, Tongaat, [insert other JSE listed entity] on us anytime soon.
But I am still underweight on the stock for some very fundamental investment reasons. And, given t... ››› more
