Small cap stocks have had a tough time in recent years. While the underlying businesses in many cases did really well - their share prices didn't.
Between March 2016 and March 2020 the Small Cap Index was down 44%.
In the last 6 months though, the Small Cap Index is up 25%, erasing a great portion of its past losses.
And thus far 2021 looks like a scorcher for small companies.

Between May 2015 and May 2018, the JSE Small Cap Index went nowhere. And between May 2018 and May 2020 it dropped 44.68%.
Since then however the Small Cap Index is up 29%.
That's a huge rally in just six months.
But here's the thing. It's not over yet. The small companies in this index aren't even back to the levels they traded, at the start of 2020. Never mind their 2018 highs…

Mark Twain wasn't wrong when he said:
“History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”
The more things change, the more they stay the same - this is true when it comes to the fear, greed and herd mentality in the markets... If you've been investing long enough you will see the same patterns on repeat.
Just think back to the 2007/2008 financial crisis…

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
By definition, Penny Stocks trade at R10 or less and they're typically small companies with big growth potential.
These investments are attractive because small share price moves translate into large percentage gains - or losses if you pick the wrong stock. In short, these are volatile investments, so you're advised to use caution.
But if you're looking for one of these top penny stock com... ››› more

I don't often make predictions.
And, I simply don't like being wrong…
But every once in a while, the evidence is so conclusive … I simply cannot ignore it.
You see, some four years ago, I uncovered a report which indicated the coalmines that supply Eskom would reach the end of their lives between 2010 and 2020.

Over the past three years the JSE has gone nowhere!
On 4 July, 2014 the JSE All-Share Index stood at 52,060 points.
By the end of 3 July 2016 the same index stood at 52,164.
And yet it's PE is near an all time high of 19.94.
This makes the index ridiculously ‘expensive' and the average investor extremely despondent, crying where's the value.
But I'm hear to tell you, there's ... ››› more
These days with the internet and the wealth of information out there everyone wants to run their own portfolio. And who better to do that, as nobody else cares more for your money than yourself?
The fact is, anyone can manage a stock portfolio.
Just like anyone can drive a car.
But in the same way, it doesn't mean you won't hit a tree or slide off of the road every once in a while.
