  • Why this JSE stock is on my “BUY” list!
  • Uber is one of the most amazing success stories in recent history. As I write this the company is worth $88 billion today. But it doesn't own any vehicles. And it doesn't pay salaries to employees. In fact - the company is estimated to have between 3 and 4 million drivers around the world. Yet the company doesn't have a fraction of the overheads a business with 3 million employees would h... ››› more

  • I think it's GAME-OVER for the South African Rand in 2022

As this is good for the GDP and the economy, it will lead to US dollar strength and weakness among o... ››› more
