No News is Good News - One to buy with one to sell
The JSE managed to etch up a 1.3% gain last week as there was very little driving markets. Volatility is at record lows yet uncertainty is high, the market is taking a wait and see approach.

Inflation came out a little higher in May at 5.4% versus 5.3% in April. This remains within the MPC's target range.

The Public Protector's report is being challenged and the Mining Charter kickback is building momentum. The Rand has strengthened since the weakness seen after the mining charter, we should see a few more days of strength in the absence of major negative news.

In the States, markets continue to reach new highs, and other international markets are buoyant. U.S valuations still look stretched, but the bull trend is intact.

Oil has pulled back as oil rig counts continue to rise, (last week marked the 23rd week of increases) and OPEC production cuts fell short of targets.

Naspers' results released on Friday signalling that pre-tax profits were up, helping it end the week 5,6% higher, this boosted the industrial sector to close the week 2.9% up.

Last week's movers and shakers…

• Best Performers: Transhex 11.4%, Alviva 6.6%, Naspers, 5,6% CMH 4.8% and Discovery 4.7%
• Worst Performers: Mpact -15.2%, Brait -11%, Northam 7,1% and Harmony -5.4%

Discovery's share price rose on an announcement, it has collaborated with GMHBA and AIA Australia to create a new health insurance brand that will roll out health insurance coupled with Vitality.
