Capitec

  • Special Update: The looming global food crisis. And what to do about it.
  • A few weeks ago, I made a rather extreme prediction. I predicted the world would be entering a period of greater instability triggered specifically by food price increases. Normally I would wait a little longer before writing a follow up, but things are changing rapidly on the ground. Over the last week or so, we've seen upticks in instability across much of the emerging world. Protests have er... ››› more

  • Is this the end of the run for Capitec?
  • In the last month Capitec Bank hit an all-time high of R1,913 a share. It's pulled back slightly from that. But the bank has seen phenomenal growth with a 51% return in the last year, 158% in the last 5 years and 791% in the last ten years. In fact, in its August 2021 figures the bank announced a figure of 16.8 million clients. That's compared to 15.8 million clients in February 2021 and 1... ››› more

  • These companies will be the hardest hit when the looting stops
  • I hope you are safe today. Amidst the unprecedented looting in KZN and Gauteng there are glimmers of hope as communities come together to fight the violence. But once the fires stop, and the rubble is cleared, which businesses will be hardest hit - and which ones will need the longest time to recover fully? ________________________________________   _________________________... ››› more

  • Are the JSE's small caps good buys - or not?
  • 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

  • RE: Timon has answered your question
  • Q. “I want to understand trading in a simple way, as I don't understand much about trading. Please can you answer the following questions. 1. What does an entry level mean? 2. What is a stop loss level? 3. What is a take profit level? 4. How do you cancel a trade that hasn't been taken? 5. How do I confirm that I have exited a trade? I would appreciate your help Timon.  ... ››› more

  • How you can buy Capitec and other JSE shares at 20%, 30% and 50% discounts
  • 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

  • Bottom fishing or catching a falling knife?
  • The JSE seems to be filling up with bargains, as stocks have double digit declines in hours and days. Investors just need to look at what happened with Tongaat and Aspen in the past few days. And these aren't the only ones in the past couple months, Capitec, EOH, Resilient and its related companies are still fresh memories. Very often large cap stocks with derivatives on them can react a lot m... ››› more

  • Emerging markets are ready for a Bull Run
  • After a turbulent 2018, emerging markets are finding favour amongst investors looking for value with strong upside potential.   This is on the back of a few major themes that should play out:   1. A dovish FED that is expected to only hike rates once in 2019, 2. EU monetary policy that will remain accommodative, 3. Chinese stimulus to avoid a “hard landing”, 4. Glo... ››› more

  • The Real Secret to Stock Market Profits
  • Did you know in a 200-year period, nothing has come close to matching the long-term compounded returns of stocks? In a study conducted by University of Pennsylvania finance professor, Jeremy Siegel, showed that every $1 invested in: • Treasury Bills, grew to $5,061 • Bonds were worth $18,235 • Gold rose to $32.84 204 And stocks returned a phenomenal $12.7 million. But do... ››› more

  • Why you should be digging for discount dividend stocks
  • There's an old saying on Wall Street that says, "Profits are a matter of opinion, but dividends are a matter of fact." And simply put - I believe too few investors are giving sufficient attention to many of the incredible dividend paying stocks on the JSE… If you're like me, into fast moving high return shares, you know its even more difficult finding small cap companies that pay a divid... ››› more

  • These JSE companies are selling at their biggest discounts in years
  • These are the “widest discounts to sum of the parts I have tracked in many years; I see … excellent long term value here…” These are the words from a fellow analyst regarding two specific JSE listed investment companies. Following his statement, I had a deeper look at the two he refers to as well as other companies. And what I found is astounding. Businesses are selling at 15%, ... ››› more

  • Two to Buy and none to sell this week!
  • PSG has pulled back to a good buying level around the R235 mark. We've been trading the R230/R270 range this year very well. When you buy PSG you get exposure to a number of companies, like Capitec, now one of South Africa's “big 5” and growing by over 100,000 clients per month. Through PSG, you also gain exposure to Curro and Studio, which has been unbundled from Curro and starts tradin... ››› more

  • The state of our nation + 3 to buy and 2 to sell
  • The JSE Top 40 closed the week down 1,5%. Higher commodity prices; Gold, Silver and Brent Oil were up more than 2%, while Platinum managed 1,6%. These were not enough to save the Resources Index (down 3%) from a stronger Rand. Industrials and Financials were also softer. Anglogold up 9,3% and Harmony 9,5% responding to a firmer Gold Price (up 2,5%). PSG rallied 6%, see comment below. ... ››› more

  • Commodities take a step lower - Three to buy and one to sell
  • Commodities take a step lower Brent oil led the commodity basket lower last week, losing 8,1%; Platinum and Gold were down 5,7% and 2,4% respectively. Although the Rand softened, the pressure was too much for the JSE All Share Index which fell 0,8%. Resources fell 5,5%, but the rest of the sectors held up well. International indices were slightly softer across most time zone... ››› more

  • Moving swiftly along - Three to buy
  • A week of heightened protests has ended and the ANC Cadre are holding the fort, for now. Their confidence masks the growing dissension from all sides, including members of its own party, eventually pressure will come to bear. Fitch followed S&P in downgrading SA, but again the reaction was relatively muted. Clearly the market had been preparing for this eventuality. Of more concern is that som... ››› more

  • A Tale of Two Halves - Three to buy with updates
  • The JSE's Top40 index closed the first half of the year slightly positive at 0.8%. The Industrials were the leaders of the pack as the only major sector to rack up a positive return of 6.4% while resources were underwater by 9.6%. The entire market has been propped up by a handful of top performing shares like Naspers, Richmont, BATS, BidCorp, Mondi and Capitec. The interesting thing to note i... ››› more

  • Politicians Playing Chicken with Ratings Agencies - Two to buy and One to Sell
  • The Rand continued its slide last week as news emerged that Nationalising the Reserve Bank was discussed at the ANC conference. Investors are not amused by the uncertainty the ruling party are creating, which is a recipe for further downgrades. And as mentioned in prior weeks, if our local currency and debt are downgraded we could see sustained Rand weakness. Bond yields would also spike as in... ››› more
