  • Is it now time to bail on JSE listed stocks for good?
  • The JSE is down 3.95% for the past three months, 5.13% in the past six and we're only up 8% over the past three years. With politics the way they are and the performance of the South African economy many investors are asking whether they should bail on SA listed stocks for good. I'll give you my take on the situation now, let's first have a look at the facts: SA’s economy is already... ››› more

  • Higher platinum demand HALVES surplus stocks - could this be the year for platinum?
  • The platinum price has been depressed for a couple of years because of high surpluses on the back of mining and recycling of the metal putting more of it in the system than is being bought up by investors and producers. But 2019 saw this take a turn. Platinum demand for 2019 is already up significantly. Full year forecasts puts the metal's demand at 8,045 koz, compared to the 2018 figure o... ››› more

  • This chart shows today's hottest investment
  • Right now there's one sector I'm particularly excited about on the JSE. I recently banked a 150%+ gain from a share in less than 4 months in this sector, and I believe it has only started running. I'm talking about Gold… And while the shiny metal itself has delivered investors very good returns over the years, right now gold miners are in an even better position to profit. Let me... ››› more

  • The best strategy to muscle your way through the looming financial crisis
  • Last week the Repo rate jumped more than 400%. Now, I'm not talking about the South African rate which is set by the South African Reserve Bank. I'm talking about the “real Repo rate”. The US one, which affects over trillions of dollars' worth of transfers each day. This rate, which is normally just over 2% spiked up to 10% last Tuesday (17 of September) as global lending markets s... ››› more

  • What you need to know about stock buyouts
  • JSE listed stocks are selling at their cheapest levels in a decade. And that's created an opportunity for internationally listed, and private equity companies to make a mint. You see, these companies borrow money internationally at 3%, 4% or 5% interest. They then buy these South African companies that are selling cheaply and the dividends they receive from them are enough to repay their b... ››› more

  • South Africa's economy is saved from recession - but we're not out of the woods yet
  • The latest release from StatsSA showed that South Africa's economy grew 3.1% for the second quarter of 2019. This was better than the 2.5% expected by most economists, and it's a good sign for South African's who were worried about recession hitting. Unfortunately, this growth doesn't necessarily mean our economy is growing again… With first quarter GDP shrinking 3.2%, 3.1% growth do... ››› more

  • Sasol: When mega-projects turn into mega-mistakes
  • A couple of years ago Sasol announced it would enter the US market by building an ‘ethane cracker'. A massive petrochemicals plant called Lake Charles that would require it to invest nearly as much as its market cap was at the time. The company said this was where its future lay, and the project would change the face of the company forever. Right now however Sasol shares are at their low... ››› more

  • Why you must rebalance your crypto portfolio!
  • I'm sure you've heard of portfolio rebalancing. Almost every investor does it. It's a simple, but extremely important ‘tool' where an investor periodically buys or sells different assets (stocks, bonds, etc) within a portfolio. Rebalancing helps reduce the risk an investor suffers from the changes in returns of various investments. And it also helps ‘restore' their desired asset allocatio... ››› more

  • This week's WEF opens up a short-term opportunity to profit
  • The World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa 2019 is currently taking place in Cape Town. During this three-day event, our most senior politicians will be out in full force to convince the international community South Africa remains investable. They'll discuss lofty matters such as the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR), sustainability, digitalisation and stability. And, if history is any indication... ››› more

  • Sanity ALWAYS prevails when investing - EVENTUALLY
  • Sometimes the stock market behaves inexplicably. Quality companies trade at unbelievable discounts. Or they sell at prices so high that you might flinch. What makes this difficult to muster is the fact that these ‘discrepancies' tend to keep going on for much longer than you'd think possible. One such share was Curro Holdings. The company listed in July 2011 and investors could p... ››› more

  • When fear grows - these stocks soar
  • The rand is at R15.37 to the dollar - the weakest we've seen since the Zuma era. We can blame this on NHI, EWC or a string of other three lettered government policies that aren't business friendly. But at the end of the day the whole world is running scared right now. Thanks to the US trade war, negative bond yields in many European countries and increasing world debt. In fact, for t... ››› more

  • One of the top penny stocks to watch in September 2019
  • 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

  • Suddenly $1,900 gold doesn't look that crazy any more…
  • In June 2019 I told readers that gold is headed higher… Back then I had a longer term target of $1,900 in mind. Today, the gold price is already $100 higher than it was back then. The rand is also weaker - leading to a rand gold price of more than R750,000/kg. That is R110,000 per kilo more than it was in June... Gold has suddenly become so bullish that Goldman Sachs just upgraded it... ››› more

  • Never let a good crisis go to waste
  • As Winston Churchill once said “Never let a good crisis go to waste”, we believe investors should be ensuring they have enough exposure to offshore assets that will be a hedge against a “deeper crisis” and should be slowly buying depressed local assets if they have cash on hand. Most investors have been sitting on the sidelines not fully exposed to equities You can't blame local invest... ››› more

  • Breaking News! Land expropriation bill is a go! What does this mean for investors?
  • On 26 July 2019 the SA government's National Assembly pushed forward with expropriation without compensation plans. It established a committee to introduce legislation for amending our constitution. The recommendation was that the expropriation bill should be passed speedily to replace the existing 1975 apartheid-era expropriation act. So, what does this mean for South African investors like y... ››› more

  • So if you just lost your bet, why on earth would you double up?
  • Ever heard of the Martingale Staking System'? It is a simple betting system that originated in 18th century France. It required the gambler to double their bet after every loss so the first win would recover all previous losses and end up with a profit equal to the original stake. The theory suggests that if you had infinite time and wealth, the probability of eventually winning become... ››› more

But some small businesses will turn into tomorrow's biggest winners and create massive wealth for investors that got in at the right time.

  • Why these shares that DON'T pay dividends just could be the best investments right now
  • There are 275 dividend paying shares in the JSE today. They average a dividend pay-out of 3.88%. While a 3.88% dividend is surely better than nothing - this doesn't even cover the interest you'd have received on your cash with a fixed deposit. And, once that money is paid out by a company the money is lost to it forever. But what if I told you there's a better option - a company that d... ››› more

  • Does it still pay to invest in gold?
  • Gold's been a form of money, an investment and a store of value for almost as long as modern day man has walked the earth. Some argue gold is a barbaric relic that no longer holds the monetary qualities of the past. They say paper currency, or electronic currencies such as Bitcoin, are the assets of choice. But the fact remains that gold has been a very stable appreciating asset for centur... ››› more
