  • This profit window is closing fast
  • If you've been following mainstream economic news over the past month, you'll probably think the world is in a much better place. You'll have heard about a variety of drug trials on Covid-19 vaccines. News from companies like Johnston and Johnston, Merck, Moderna, Novavax all seem to be buoying investor sentiment. The slightest hint of a potential solution to the Coronavirus problem and ma... ››› more

  • If I only held one stock, it would be this
  • Everyone has favourites. A favourite food. A favourite colour. A favourite vacation spot. And, even though you'll never admit it, some people even have a favourite child. For me, this pertains to the world of stocks too. So, what is that one stock? The one I just have to hold no matter what anyone says? Well, it's a company that, for the longest time, operated in the shadows of its mai... ››› more

  • Do this today so you don't lose more as the rand continues to flounder
  • R19.34! It's enough to make you sick. Because that, my friend, is not the price of a loaf of bread these days. Or even the cost of a litre of petrol. It's how much you would have to cough up to buy a single dollar on Monday morning. Shocked? I was too, when three days ago the ZAR touched its worst level ever! And the awful reality is, it's not about to rally back to R14.00... ››› more

  • How do you keep your wealth intact in the midst of all this panic?
  • Winston Churchill famously said: “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” I love that saying. Except today I'm changing it just a little: “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an investor sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” And that's what my piece is about this week.   Br... ››› more

  • Think you can't move money offshore with a local trust? Think again
  • Speak to any financial advisor with half a brain and he'll tell you to go offshore. Sure, South Africa may one day reclaim our early 2000 title of “investment darling of the emerging markets”, but it's not going to happen any time soon. Our problems are simply too big. There's is no quick fix to Eskom, our ever-increasing sovereign debt or our 29% unemployment rate. So yes, that means ... ››› more

  • The Coronavirus is far worse than the media is telling you
  • This coronavirus is getting out of control! And markets couldn't care less… The S&P500 is at record highs. Chinese shares have bounced almost 8% from their lows. And yet, every indication is, we're facing massive real-world consequences after the Chinese authorities continue to quarantine tens of millions of Chinese workers. It's no wonder markets are pushing higher however a... ››› more

  • Cloudy with a chance of profits
  • Up until a few years ago, speaking about clouds meant you talking about the weather. Today, however, clouds also refer to the way we store data outside of the confines of a hard drive or remote computer. But for savvy investors, clouds are starting to mean something else entirely. That's because investing in this niche sector of the market, presents an exciting way to profit.   ... ››› more

  • Do this now and Januworry will never mess with you again
  • Can you believe it's ‘Januworry' again? I honestly think there's nothing worse than the point when your bank account tells you, you had just a little too much fun over the December holidays. Thankfully, 2020 could be the very last January you ever feel this way - IF you make this pre-emptive strike today.   ________________________________________     The man who bo... ››› more

  • Are you ready to cash in on the next growth revolution?
  • Electricity is fundamental to the way we live our lives. You simply can't live without it. Just consider the disastrous effect of load shedding this past week. Roads in chaos, stockpiles of food rotting in refrigerators and many downstream services just grinding to a halt. And yet, if you look at the big picture… And, I'm talking the development of mankind “big picture”, we've only h... ››› more

  • The #1 way to avoid rand volatility on any money you make overseas
  • If you, or your business, receive regular payments from abroad, you have to be pretty annoyed with the rand. After all, it's one of the most volatile currencies in the world. Which is pretty frustrating when you consider the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) forces you to convert any money you receive from abroad into rand within 30 days of you getting it - or sends your money back. But he... ››› more

  • How to expand your investment universe and tap into the online gaming mega-trend
  • I remember, when I was younger, how PC gamers were the social pariahs. Life was simple: The rugby players were the popular ones. The PC gamers were the geeks. How things have changed!   ________________________________________   ‘The Great JSE Takeover’    If you’d bought stock just before these companies were taken over... I'm talking about Absa, SA br... ››› more

  • Are you making these three common investment mistakes?
  • If you're like most “information age” investors, you've probably taken a “do-it-yourself” approach to building long-term wealth. I've seen many non-professional investors take this approach and, the truth is, it's rarely pretty. Why? Because there are three common mistakes people tend to make when crafting their own investment portfolio. And if you're making even one of them,... ››› more

  • What to do ahead of 2020's looming recession
  • Recent poll numbers show that President Trump has lost some serious favour with his core constituency. I can't say I'm surprised. The trade war has hit American farmers hard. With the Chinese increasing tariffs on US agricultural goods, Chinese customers are no longer buying them. And that means that Trump needs to act - and fast - if he wants any chances at securing a second term in t... ››› more

  • Why ETFs could cause the next market crash
  • If you've ever watched The Big Short, chances are you know who Michael Burry is. He's the guy who figured out a bubble was forming in the US housing markets pre-2008. He also correctly predicted a market crash would ensue and made a ton of money shorting the housing market. This week, he noted there are correlations between the bubble which formed in the housing market and Exchange Traded Fund... ››› more

  • It's the 4th of July Money Morning Edition and we're celebrating US independence!
  • The US markets are closed today for the 4th of July public holiday. And, to celebrate our American friends' Independence Day, I thought it would be an excellent time to look at one of the most successful companies to come out of their capitalist democracy: Microsoft. ________________________________________ Recommended:   Why I think these gold shares could make 2019 the most profi... ››› more

  • Should you protect yourself from a potential Naspers implosion?
  • Let's just get it out of the way immediately, Naspers is a great company. It really is. I am in no way a Naspers bear. But I am a cautious bull. I do not, for one second, think Naspers will pull a Steinhoff, Mediclinic, Aspen, Tongaat, [insert other JSE listed entity] on us anytime soon. But I am still underweight on the stock for some very fundamental investment reasons. And, given t... ››› more

  • As May fails again, what's next for the UK?
  • Theresa May's recent (modified) Brexit deal has again been convincingly beaten in the House of Commons. Although it was by a smaller margin than before, it was however still a strong rebuke of her overall deal.     So, what’s next?   At the time of writing we were about to face a vote by MPs that will determine whether or not the UK wants to leave the EU with no deal in... ››› more
