Practically everything we do requires this precious metal…
You wouldn't be able to drive…
Your phone, laptop and many other gadgets wouldn't work without it…
That's why it's been dubbed a “strategic metal”.
And as the world spends trillions on ushering in new technologies like 5G, clean energy, and precision medicine, the demand for this precious metal will skyrocket!

After rallying 373% from its pandemic lows, Bell Equipment (JSE: BEL) stock is sitting at a six month low. As recently as March 2022 the stock traded at R17.50 - yet it's at R11.84 now.
During the pandemic the agricultural and mining equipment supplier saw a big recovery in demand as commodity prices soared. As a result, demand recovered and the company had a big recovery.
For example, in Ma... ››› more
Inflation is high, prices of everything, except for stocks, are rising.
It's been a tough time investing in 2022 so far.
But still there are great opportunities on the JSE.
In fact, some small cap shares are doing exceedingly well…
Let me explain. In case you missed it: Pickpocket’s Trader X closed out a USDZAR trade for a 155% gain on 27 June and just yesterday he moved his stoplo... ››› more
Harvard Professor Michael Porter spent much of his career devoted to analysing competitive strategies.
And in the early 1980s, he developed a concept called, “The Value Chain”.
In his 1985 best-seller book, "Competitive Advantage”, Porter discussed the power of the “Value Chain” and why companies that get this concept right are more likely to generate higher returns to investors.

Hi, I'm Francois Joubert, Chief Investment Strategist for Red Hot Penny Shares
And today I'm going to show you how a modest investment in a single R2 stock could become the cornerstone of your million rand portfolio.
I call it my “One in a Million Stock Play.”
You might find the idea that one or two stocks could turn a portfolio into more than a million unbelievable, yet many investor... ››› more
In April 2021, I shared a company that I believe SA investors should own.
Capital Appreciation (JSE: CTA).
You see, CTA is what I called a “Below-the-Radar” stock.
These types of companies usually small, and largely ignored by the big money investors.
Yet they demonstrate huge growth potential, generate consistent profits and in many cases, pay attractive income.

If my research is correct, It has the potential to generate as much as 741% in as little as 4 years!
The best part I expect at least 150% in just the next 18 months…
And this stock is selling for less than R2 today!
Imagine…. Buying one R2 stock and seeing it turn R10,000 into R74,100, R20,000 into R148,200 or even R100,000 into R741,000!
Hard to believe right!
But even if this ... ››› more
“The South African economy is BOOMING.”
“The South African economy is BLEEDING.”
Both these statements are true at the same time.
South Africa's economy is back at the size it was before the coronavirus pandemic struck, after growing faster-than-expected in the first quarter.
Gross domestic product expanded 1.9% in the three months through March, compared with revised growth of... ››› more
Elon Musk recently courted controversy by claiming a population collapse, not overpopulation, is a significant global threat. You might think that sounds strange. The world population is at the highest it has ever been and is still rising. A higher population also means more competition for finite resources.
Given these facts, why would you worry about a population crash? If anything, you shoul... ››› more
South Africa is making some progress toward adding new generation to its underpowered electricity grid.
The government recently signed a power purchase agreement with Scatec SA for 150 megawatts of capacity from private projects.
Scatec is an Oslo-based company that constructs solar and battery storage technology. Ultimately, this deal (and future renewable energy projects) will do a lot to ... ››› more
The bulk of the market is presenting a pretty picture right now.
As I've told investors over the past year - higher oil and rising interest rates would take their toll on the bull market. And it has.
The last time economists were this worried about the economy was during the 2008 financial crisis.
April inflation in the US was a whopping 8.3%, whilst in South Africa it was 5.9%. However, ... ››› more
“This is a personal invitation, from me to you, to give Red Hot Penny Shares a try for a whole year with no pressure or obligation whatsoever.”
Since I started with Penny Shares in 2011, we've had 191 share tips closed - with 130 winners.
That's a win rate of 68%. So just more than two out of three shares are winners.
On average out of the 191 shares - the gain is 30%. The average win... ››› more
The JSE crashed 14.45% between 2 March 2022 and 9 May 2022.
Similarly, the Dow Jones index in the USA is down 10.74% year to date of which half of this drop has been in the past month. And the S&P 500 index is down 14.75% year to date.
We hear about inflation, war, lockdowns, supply chain issues all as contributing to this bear market…
So, what is fuelling the market's drop - and are we... ››› more
If you've heard of ‘value investing', you may automatically think of Warren Buffett or Benjamin Graham, the man who coined the term - Value Investing - and, arguably the world's greatest value investor.
However, there's another person who revolutionised value investing, back in April 2000.
And he doesn't even invest!
He's a little-known accounting professor, who wrote a 57-page research... ››› more
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
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
Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more popular.
Nearly every automaker is debuting at least one new EV model this year.
These models range from affordable sedans to luxury SUVs to super trucks.
By appealing to every type of car owner, EV growth should exceed most forecasts.
But this growth also comes with concerns over the supply of key battery materials.
The ones that dominate t... ››› more

Small companies on the JSE have become popular takeover targets.
In 2021, 25 companies were delisted from the JSE, many of these were companies being bought out by management teams or acquiring companies from abroad.
Think of companies like Value Group, Adapt IT, Anchor Group and Spanjaard.
These companies are delisting because their share prices have remained too cheap - and that's creat... ››› more
In the modern age things always seem to happen quickly.
A few weeks ago, I explained how the Russian invasion of the Ukraine and the associated sanctions could potentially lead to a shift in world order. It seems this is happening far more quickly than I expected.
We have now seen firm commitments from European countries to massively increase their defence spending. We've also seen tangible ... ››› more
