Momentum improves as the JSE rises 3.6% - One to buy and One to Sell
Before we jump into what the market did and what you should look out for this week, I would like to mention a few interesting retirement articles you should consider reading.

This week's Business Times had some excellent articles by Laura du Preez on Retirement Planning, take note of the following:
  1. New disclosure of RA costs is highlighting rampant abuse in this area
  2. How a conservative strategy can cost you a fortune
  3. Longevity and new thinking on Retirement

Each of these articles talks to a topic we have covered in the last year. Changes in the law will highlight the devastation costs you'll pay on your retirement savings. Speak to us about bringing your costs down, in most cases we can reduce costs by more than 50%!
Now let’s look at what the JSE did last week and what opportunities are lining up…
Last week’s biggest gainer was Naspers at 9.6%, which boosted the JSE’s Top40 index by 1.97%.
This was even as the Rand strengthened 2.6% against the US Dollar as the USD weakens further. The market will be eyeing Wednesday’s CPI data release and the interest rate announcement on Thursday for guidance on where to for the Rand from here.
The Mining Charter has been put on the back burner for now, this should result in small boost in confidence for resources. The most oversold resource stocks are Northam, Kumba and DRDGold with high negative standard deviations, so a strong rebound could be on the cards for them.
Last week’s movers and shakers…
  • Best Performers: Naspers 9.6%, Mr Price 8.7%, Murry & Roberts 7.2%, Grindrod 7.1%, Assore 7% and PSG 6.8%
  • Worst Performers: Implats -3.9%, Datatec -3.5% and DRDGold -3.5%

One to Buy
Profits on the Horizon for this telecoms company
After the market closed on Friday, MTN sent a very positive SENS announcement. Management expects a rise of at least 20.% in both headline EPS and EPS for the first half of the 2017 results.
The negative performance in the prior year was mainly due to non-recurring costs, including the Nigeria regulatory fine of 474 cents per share (cps), professional fees related to the fine of 73 cps and losses of 136 cps from MTN’s 51% equity interest in Nigeria Tower InterCo B.V. mainly due to unrealised losses on US dollar-denominated loans. Buy below R125.00
One to Sell
Avoid this telecoms  - its price rally is unsustainable
Shares in Vodacom have jump 15% in two months from R152 in May to R174 this week. The company will release its first quarter trading update on Thursday. Operations have been performing well but voice revenue remains under pressure and the Rand strength will suppress international earnings in Rand terms.
The share is now significantly overbought, with a Standard Deviation (SD) of 2.4 times, a retracement is highly probable, we suggest you use this rally to switch into MTN.
803 people ALREADY have my number in their address book - and since I started SMS’ing them,  they've made R8,589 profit. 
Now it's YOUR turn to see
how much you could make
Best of all, you don't need ANY previous experience, hard work or special equipment aside from a stick-standard cell phone.
