  • The energy coal market is SUPER hot right now?!
  • A year ago, banks were saying they don't want to finance coal mine development any longer. European countries were closing down coal power plants. It looked like there was little interest in the commodity going forward. But now the price of coal is booming. In October last year a ton of export coal sold for around $90. Today it sells between $300 and $400! That's a big change… ... ››› more

  • Are we on the cusp of an AI explosion?
  • Last week, I mentioned Elon Musk's controversial claim that a falling population would result in a serious threat to humanity. I also briefly touched on my own controversial call on Tesla (TLSA). After the feedback from readers, I've decided to expand on Tesla and my current view on the beaten down tech stocks. Firstly, it's important to know there has been a lot of buzz around Artificial Intel... ››› more

  • South Africa's ailing, booming economy - what's going on?
  • “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

  • Is Elon Musk right about a population crash?
  • 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

  • Buy these stocks for inflation crushing dividends of up to 10%+ a year
  • 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

  • Should you use this massive sell-off to buy into China?
  • For years, many in the West have admired the ability of the Chinese Government to push through policies that would never fly in a democratic country. This has allowed them to build structures like the Three Gorges Dam. This hydroelectric project is the world's largest power station and provides about 10% of the country's electricity. But it also required the relocation of over 1 million people.... ››› more

  • The current selloff is great for long-term investors. Here's why…
  • Over the last few months, I've written quite a few rather bleak articles (to say the least). I've issued warning after warning about the state of the financial markets. So, if you follow my Money Morning column regularly, you may easily believe I'm a permabear. A permabear is someone who believes markets will fall no matter what the conditions on the ground look like. Given my very negative sla... ››› more

  • Special Update: The looming global food crisis. And what to do about it.
  • 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

  • Should you be adding protection to your portfolio?
  • There are many economic signals that can accurately predict a recession. A few weeks ago, I wrote about the “inverted yield curve”. It's a very strong predictor that economic growth will contract in the short-term. Rapidly rising oil prices are another excellent indication that recession is hovering just over the horizon. Historically speaking, high inflation combined with low unemp... ››› more

  • The world markets are rallying but my money is on this one index!
  • It looks like things are finally heading up with the world's markets since Russia invaded Ukraine in late February. In fact, from the middle of February 2022 we have already seen the markets move up including: 7.6% for the JSE All share index 11.2% for UK's FTSE 100 8.8% for the Dow Jones 30 But that's not all… The star index that I see major upside to come is showing the most prom... ››› more

  • You cannot afford to miss out on this potential $160 trillion sector!
  • By now, you've probably heard of sustainable investing… Well, at the centre of sustainable investing is climate tech - the ecosystem of technology companies, financiers and providers of “green/clean” energy that do not produce emissions of carbon dioxide or CO2). And right now an unparalleled wave of innovation is emerging to help solve the most pressing problems associated with decarb... ››› more

  • Should you be afraid of the looming recession? And what to do about it…
  • US bond markets recently went into inversion. This is when short-term interest rates are higher than long-term interest rates. And what this can mean is a recession is around the corner. In this case, markets are anticipating a recession sometime in the next 6 to 24 months. But, even if you don't look at such a “technical” indicator, it should be clear the risk of recession is high. T... ››› more

  • Tectonic Changes: The Soft Commodity Shift
  • 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

  • There are good and BAD gold investments -which ones are they?
  • When war hits, inflation soars, and the economy struggles, investors seek out gold. This is advice many investors have heard over again. And considering the price of gold is up from $1,791 in January this year to a high of $2,043 - and still floating around $1,950 this is pertinent advice. But here's the thing… There are good ways to invest in gold. And then there are BAD ways to invest... ››› more

  • What happens if Russia's war spreads to the rest of Europe?
  • We're all watching as Russia and Ukraine are in the midst of a bloody war. Over 3 million people have already been uprooted from their homes, and have fled Ukraine. All this following Russian President Vladimir Putin's address to his people announcing a “special military operation” in Ukraine to “denazify” the country. We're experiencing the uncertainty a war like this brings. The po... ››› more

  • This is Cryptos next BIG growth market..!
  • 880% growth in 2021... That's how much worldwide crypto adoption grew last year. What was behind this meteoric rise? As I've written before, a major driver was an influx of institutional investment into the crypto world. But that's not the whole story. There's another driving force that is pushing the price of crypto assets upwards, and one that could continue to do so in the long t... ››› more

  • These three stocks' earnings are soaring...
  • Markets are abuzz with the mess in Ukraine, war is threatening and it could have a massive impact on Europe. And then there's the oil price that's edging towards $100 again. But this is all noise. As companies release their results their share prices fly, or fall… And right now, there are three penny stocks that have released earnings that investors love. Here's what I am talking about... ››› more

  • I think it's GAME-OVER for the South African Rand in 2022
  • Since last year, emerging currencies have been falling. Scrap that… CRASHING… We aren't sure why exactly, but I think it's all down to what is happening with the US. You see, the FED is expecting to raise their interest rates this year. This will help dampen the inflation rate. As this is good for the GDP and the economy, it will lead to US dollar strength and weakness among o... ››› more

  • When will the SA economy recover from the pandemic crash?
  • In 2020 the South African economy saw an unprecedented crash because of the Covid-19 pandemic. In dollar terms our country's GDP dropped from $351.4 billion to $301.92 billion. That's roughly R740 billion that disappeared from our GDP overnight. Tourism came to a halt. Restaurants, hotels, gyms and car dealerships hit a massive slump. Property, specifically office space became a hot... ››› more
