  • How to calculate the Dividend Per Share using Google
  • Q. “In a recent article by Francois Joubert, he gave us a tutorial on how to calculate the dividend yield and the dividend cover ratio. Unfortunately, the only place I have to see the shares data is on Google. My question is, can I calculate the Dividend Per Share with the information Google provides or do I need to download a new software?”   A. Yes you can calculate the Dividend Pe... ››› more

  • What you need to know about dividend stocks today
  • Last week I received a letter from a Red Hot Penny Shares member asking about dividends from companies in our portfolio. ‘X' asked for the companies that pay the biggest dividends. But the answer to that question is a bit more intricate. You see, a company selling at R1 paying a 5c dividend could be more attractive than a R10 share paying a 30c dividend. But the 30c dividend is techn... ››› more

  • How reinvesting your dividends can boost your wealth
  • Albert Einstein is merited with saying that compounding ‘is the most powerful force in the world' or the ‘eighth wonder of the world'. When you apply this to reinvesting your dividends, you'll see why compounding is so powerful. Compounding or compound interest is basically earning interest on interest that you've already received. When it comes to dividends, it means instead of ta... ››› more

  • Why you should keep an eye out for companies doing share buybacks
  • 2020 has barely begun yet we're already set to be flooded by hundreds of companies set to report financial results between February and March. Results releases are even more important for small-cap and penny stocks. That's because these companies don't have as much interest from institutional analysts - so results announcements are the main way for news about these companies' potential to ... ››› more

  • Last week, I warned investors about this “income-trap” and it just crashed 31%!
  • In November's issue of the South African Investor, I warned readers about two types of “danger” shares lurking on the JSE. One of these types is called the “High-Yielder”. Simply these are shares that sit on suspiciously high dividend yields. You've probably heard me speak about these “income-traps” before, but in the South African Investor, I went further and reveale... ››› more

  • 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

  • Should you invest in a company that pays ‘special dividends'?
  • As you may know, many shares pay dividends. A dividend is a portion of a company's earnings that it pays to its shareholders. Usually this payment happens once or twice a year. And because they offer this added benefit of a regular income stream, income-seekers love dividend-paying stocks. But occasionally, companies surprise investors by electing to pay a ‘special dividend'. Special... ››› more

  • Is Clicks' dividend safe? The answer lies in three simple charts

Without income you can count on, you're dependent on your retirement annuity to get by. And that's not a spot you want to be in… That's why, part of my job as Real Wealth editor, is to find investments that consistently pay investors dividends - as well as - investmen... ››› more

  • The ‘Ultimate Paycheque' for a rich retirement
  • Imagine investing R100,000 in a company and receiving over R600,000 in dividends alone… Or investing the same amount and getting back nearly R200,000 just in dividends… Now that's serious income that could guarantee a comfortable retirement. Now imagine owning six of these shares right now… I'd call that the ‘Ultimate Paycheque' retirement. And as I said, I've identified si... ››› more

  • A two-minute formula every ‘dividend investor' must know
  • It's no secret that if you are investing for your retirement, you want to have income producing stocks in your portfolio.

Instead I want to show you a far more RELIABLE way to calculate the real dividend yield, so that you can invest... ››› more

  • Why you need to know about ECNs before you trade Crypto-currencies
  • Q. “I want to start to trade Crypto-currencies. I heard that I don't need to worry about ECNs ever again. I don't even know what an ECN is, let alone worry about them. Could you explain this in layman's terms. I find that the definitions on the internet, are far too complicated to understand?”   A. I'll try to explain what an ECN is with an easy to understand analogy.    ... ››› more

  • Why the most common argument against dividends is wrong!
  • The most common argument you hear from investors who aren't interested in dividends is that the company should be able to find something better to do with its cash than give it back to shareholders. They say the funds should be used to grow the business either by investing in the business itself or by acquiring new ones. These are valid points but here's where they are wrong… Recomm... ››› more

  • Why you should invest in these two stocks in 2019 if you want to double your income!
  • From mid-2002 to mid-2017, the JSE All Share returned a cumulative 420%. Doesn't sound too bad, right? But if you had re-invested dividends, the return would be over 700% Just think about that for a second… That's an extra 300% growth thanks to simply reinvesting the dividends. To put it another way, R10,000 back in mid-2002 would be worth over R50,000 invested in the JSE. Bu... ››› more
