  • The next big growth market for cryptos!
  • Back in 2018, India outlawed “any service in relation to virtual currencies”. And if you were dabbling in cryptos, you could face prison time. The original ban was imposed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), which clearly feared crypto would undermine its authority. Fast-forward to March 2020, and India's Supreme Court overruled the RBI, calling the ban “unconstitutional”. Sinc... ››› more

  • Will fast-food deliver fast growth in the next year?
  • This week, sit-down restaurants once again opened their doors to the public. They opened under a cloud of restrictions. But they're open! This must be a welcome relief to so many private restauranteurs and small business investors. Because, while they can't serve alcohol, offer a buffet and or hand you a menu (menus will have to be replaced by “no-touch” options), they can at least sta... ››› more

  • Five bear market survival strategies for investors
  • A bear market refers to a widespread decline in asset prices of at least 20%. We've seen stock markets fall 20% and more in recent months. The oil price fell through the floor, and unemployment is soaring. This is not a fun time to be in, and you might be confused, panicked or just blown away. The good news is, this is only a phase - and it will also pass. Things will turn around and l... ››› more

  • 3 Checks to Protect Your Portfolio as Airlines Crash and Burn…
  • It was quite a week for airline stocks. It started with the announcement from Warren Buffett that Berkshire Hathaway had sold stakes in four major US airlines: United, Delta, Southwest and American Airlines. This is an exceptionally uncharacteristic move from the legendary value investor. Firstly, Buffett is all about “buy and hold”. He rarely sells investments unless, the prospect... ››› more

  • Crypto is crushing it in 2020!
  • Since the start of the corona panic, I've been keeping tabs on which asset is weathering the storm the best. And not surprisingly, crypto is doing the best by far - at least for now. After a 16% jump in less than 24 hours last Thursday, crypto is now 31% up year to date (YTD). All while…   • The S&P 500 is now down 11%.    • The JSE All Share is now down aroun... ››› more

  • Can Bitcoin thrive during periods of deflation?
  • Traditional currencies, like the US Dollar, Euro, Yen or Pound are all inflationary in nature, due to the very fact that central banks can print them at will. This means fiat money loses value every day as its purchasing power is reduced. Bitcoin on the other hand, is widely considered to be a hedge against inflation. That's because Bitcoin's supply is capped at 21 million and it's pre-pro... ››› more

  • Don't get caught in South Africa's debt death-spiral
  • Last Friday, ratings agency Moodys dropped their outlook for SA debt from stable to negative. This means within the next 6 to 24 months it's likely we'll see the last of the three major ratings agencies cut our government debt rating to junk. As an economist, I am now all but certain the downgrade will happen. SA will become a junk status borrower. ________________________________________... ››› more

  • Bitcoin: “A bet on the future; a shelter for the present"
  • The quote above is what Jehan Chu, managing partner at blockchain investment and advisory firm Kenetic Capital in Hong Kong, recently said about Bitcoin. What made him say this? Well, last week Donald Trump continued his ‘tariff tantrum' by adding 10% tariffs on another $300 billion in Chinese imports, starting 1 September. China retaliated by asking state buyers to halt American ag... ››› more

  • 3 Small-Cap Stocks with BIG potential

But some small businesses will turn into tomorrow's biggest winners and create massive wealth for investors that got in at the right time. Small-cap stocks, or the penny shares we invest in, are generally companies with market caps of less than... ››› more

  • Right now, many investors are scrambling to find assets that don't follow the swings of the stock market. Their first choice is gold. You see, gold has constantly proved itself as a supreme store of value. If investors get scared by financial or political news, gold makes a great insurance policy.

  • Seven investment ideas I wish I learned earlier in life
  • Don't you wish you started investing earlier in life? I certainly do. Even though my first investments were made during my university years, there was so much money I wasted on expensive clothes, computer games and gadgets. While I'm happy with where I am now, there are so many things I wish the younger me knew. From the nitty-gritty details of how and why to invest, to the bigger-picture ... ››› more

  • You need to avoid this investment trap
  • “Francois - AEEI shares look really attractive. The company's interim earnings showed a profit of 38.67cps and the company's net asset value is a whopping R10 - while the share price is a mere R2.55. Certainly there must be upside potential here?” Surely a company trading at a 74.5% discount to its assets and a PE of 6.59 on half year earnings is cheap, and a certain buy? Well, in some... ››› 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

  • South Africa vs the World
  • If you have a JSE portfolio, you know the markets have been bad for the last few years. From the start of January 2015 until the end of February 2019, the JSE top 40 is up less than 15%, which is less than 5% per year. This is much less than the “normal” return of about 15% per year. The recent underperformance of the JSE is a key reason many retirees are now experiencing a shortfall i... ››› more

  • Rand Rally loses steam, here's how to profit
  • The Rand has been one of the strongest EM currencies in the past few weeks, but the strength will be short lived. The Rand has been boosted by a dovish FED, an ECB trying to balance monetary policy and economic growth, and the easing of Trade War fears. But all the positives are fickle and cautious investors should be looking a few steps ahead.       Investors looking to diversify off... ››› more

  • Dividends and discounts make this share a great buy
  • Following on the theme of buying shares at a discount, today's company is trading at a discount to its net asset value as well as paying over 6.5% in dividends. You will get paid to patiently wait for the company's share price to return to a premium to its net asset value (NAV). The biggest reason for the discount is that it failed to comply with credit regulations in the past. These issues... ››› more

  • Gold is in big trouble
  • Since 2015, gold has climbed higher and higher. From $1,047 up to $1,377. If you've been a Trading Tips member since then you'll know, almost every gold article in the last three years have been strong buy predictions. And, they've been correct 90% of the time. Today I have a new gold prediction… I believe the gold rally has now come to an end. It looks like it's in big trou... ››› more

  • Why you should be accumulating Dischem
  • Even though President Trump hasn't slowed down on his “Trade War” rhetoric, indicating he would levy tariffs against another $500 billion of Chinese goods, global markets are pushing higher. It's doing this on the back of positive earnings releases. We're almost a fifth of the way through Q2 earnings season and so far, 87% of US companies are beating analyst's forecasts.
