  • What's the situation with the South African economy right now?
  • On 20 May 2021 the SA Reserve Bank had its bimonthly monetary policy meeting. The bank kept interest rates flat - at what is basically an all-time low for South Africans… In its announcement the bank governor, Lestja Kganyago said “Economic and financial conditions are expected to remain volatile for the foreseeable future. In this uncertain environment, policy decisions will continue ... ››› more

  • Missed the last FTSE 100 rally? You're not going to want to miss this one…
  • In March 2021, I sent a prediction article saying the FTSE 100 was ready to rally over 435 points. And last month, it hit the price target at 7,184. As I mentioned in the previous article, it was a no brainer. The economy was opening up, the FTSE got upgraded by the OECD and the pound was crashing. Now that positivity is flooding the market, I expect another major rally for the FTSE 10... ››› more

  • Is this Nobel Prize-Winning Economist Wrong about Bitcoin?
  • When crypto crashes, something interesting happens… An army of naysayers rush from out of the woodwork with the usual “I told you so”. And I'm not just talking about people on social media, or even friends. But also professors of economics and fund managers! Even this Nobel prize-winning economist had a go… ________________________________________   Final reminder... ››› more

  • Why Brent Crude is heading up to $80 a barrel!
  • I believe there is one commodity that can be seen as an indicator for a recovering world economy. Brent Crude… Think about it… We need oil to run just about anything nowadays. We need oil for transport, for electricity and to run massive operations. Last year, I was extremely pessimistic and expected the price of oil to drop to $30. Which it did… And this year, my analysi... ››› more

  • What expropriation through inflation means for you
  • What is a government to do if it has added billions, or even trillions of rands of debt in a short amount of time? South Africa's national debt increased 30% to R3.7 trillion in 2020. The US printed a fifth of all the money in all its history - in mere months. Simply put - these amounts are too big to just pay back. So, these governments need to use another tactic. The ‘raise cash' b... ››› more

  • What the resources boom means for the rand
  • By now I'm sure you've noticed commodity prices are booming! Fifty-three out of 63 commodities monitored by the World Bank were up in price in December 2020 compared with the same month a year earlier. Copper, Palladium, Rhodium and many other metals are at all time highs. Even agricultural commodities like soy, maize and sunflower are climbing. I don't expect this to continue forever.... ››› more

  • The good - the bad - and the great reason why I'm buying gold
  • After eight months, I'm finally getting a strong signal to buy gold. It's been a long wait, but I believe it'll be worth it. It comes off the back of both good and bad news... On the one hand, we have a strong economy recovery on the way - where consumers are feeling more optimistic and investors are buying once again. On the other hand, we may have a war brewing between two major ... ››› more

  • Commodity prices are soaring, can this trend continue?
  • Recently I told you how palladium and some of the other PGMs are at record highs… But the soaring prices haven't just been in these precious metals. Copper just hit a 10-year high - up 91% from a year ago! Similarly the price of iron ore is also at the highest levels it has ever seen right now. Coal - which is really out of fashion and slated as a diminishing commodity is up 75% ... ››› more

  • A “Below-the Radar” stock you should own today!
  • They're usually small companies, which are largely ignored by the big money investors… Yet they demonstrate huge growth potential, generate consistent profits and in many cases, pay attractive income. I call them “Below-the-Radar” stocks. And when investors finally take notice of them, their share prices can soar 50%, 100%, even 200% in a short period. Here's one below-the-ra... ››› more

  • Should you invest in the $85 Billion Crypto listing?
  • Do you remember Mt.Gox? It was a huge crypto exchange. It's believed at its peak to have handled around 70% of all bitcoin trading. It was unstoppable. Until it failed due to theft, insolvency and a collapse of operations that smashed the industry. But as Mt.Gox failed, another crypto exchange would rise to greatness… ________________________________________   211%,... ››› more

  • My jaw dropped when I saw the next price target for the South African rand
  • Over the last six months the rand has been an absolute star compared to other emerging currencies. While the rand has been strengthening to under R14.50, I can't say much about the other emerging currencies. For instance: The Brazilian Real has weakened -8% to the US dollar. The Rouble has dropped over 4% And the Turkish and Argentine currencies have weakened over 10%. The rand ... ››› more

  • An investment phenomenon as frightening as a robber in the night is coming for you
  • Ronald Reagan once said it is “as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber, and as deadly as a hitman.” Margaret Thatcher said “inflation is the parent of unemployment and the unseen robber of those who have saved.” The SA Reserve Bank didn't increase interest rates - as it expects inflation to stay in check. Most investors are simply ignoring the threat of inflation,... ››› more

  • Own “Dividend Dominators” for consistent income every year!
  • Many people believe that dividends are boring. And aren't big enough to make a difference in their portfolio. But that simply isn't true. Throughout history, finding great dividend companies that pay you consistent income every year has been one of the great ways to build wealth. I call these types of companies “Dividend Dominators” and they should be in every investor's portfolio... ››› more

  • WARNING: The Euro is in danger!
  • The UK has already vaccinated 42.4% of their population? The US has vaccinated 25.3% of their population. Yet only 9.1% of the EU has been vaccinated. Not only that. It is estimated that it'll take four more months to vaccinate 75% of the US and within four months to reach that percentage for the UK. However, it'll take over 17 months for Europe before 75% of its population rec... ››› more

  • Is oil really on its way out?
  • Dear reader,   In a recent statement oil giant Shell said “oil production peaked in 2019, and that we can now expect it to decline gradually by 1 or 2% per year.”   Oil major BP has come out by itself making a similar claim. According to BP the world has reached ‘peak oil’.   BP expects oil demand to fall by AT LEAST 10% this decade and up to 50% in the next 20 ye... ››› more

  • These small caps are shooting the lights out
  • For the past two years I've continuously told investors that South African small cap companies present much better opportunity than most large cap stocks do. In the past three months the Small Cap index is up 17.8% compared to 15.94% for the Top 40 index. That's why I sent my top 5 plays for 2021 to my Red Hot penny Shares readers just 2 weeks back. But this outperformance has just starte... ››› more

  • Could this be the big catalyst this penny stock needs?
  • Like the tourism and hospitality sectors, construction has been hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, the construction sector saw a 30% collapse in the second quarter of 2020. But it looks like the construction sector has started to see a recovery at last. In 2020, the Afrimat Construction Index dropped to below 70 - from a 2019 average of just above 120. Indicating a huge drop i... ››› more

  • Why on earth would a company buy back its own shares?
  • Right now, there are scores of companies doing share buy backs of their own shares. Think of Argent, Onelogix, Bowler Metcalf, Insimbi, Mpact and Trellidor… And these are just a handful of penny stocks. There are many more on the JSE actively buying shares in themselves. So why would a company do this, and is it good or bad? ________________________________________   No ord... ››› more
