  • Why is this market darling down 32.65% in the past year?
  • Between March 2009 and March 2018 investors in Shoprite made a 524.75% total return on their shares in the company - that's roughly double the 260% the JSE Top 40 index produced in the same time. But in the past twelve months Shoprite lost 32.65% of its market value. And from its March 2018 high it is down 41.21%.      Shoprite’s meteoric rise and fall       ... ››› more

  • The ONLY six things that matter when you invest for real wealth
  • At a new year's party, a family member introduced me to a friend and mentioned to them that I work in the investment industry.   The guy leaned in and asked, “So what will the stock market do this year?”   To which I replied “There’s no way to be sure, and it’s not something I focus on when investing”   “How about the economy, will it grow again in 2019?... ››› more

  • Gold just shot through $1,300, up $131 since August!
  • In August 2018 the gold price traded at $1176. Since then it's shot up in a near straight line, hitting $1307 on Tuesday 29 January… For South African's the current gold price is even more significant… You see, in rand terms the gold price is very close to its one year high… In February 2018 the gold price was R494,365 per kilogram. Today it sits at R572,615 per kilogram.   ... ››› more

  • What the oldest money manager on Wall Street can teach you about investing in 2019
  • Irving Kahn was the oldest active money manager on Wall Street before he passed away. He was born in 1905 and in 2002 he said that he was still working through the night finding great stocks. But more than his work ethic, Kahn was known for the fortune he made during the ‘Great Depression' in the 1930's. Kahn began working on Wall Street in 1928 during a roaring bull market and becam... ››› more

  • This shiny metal is at its highest levels ever
  • Palladium just hit its highest levels ever on Thursday 18 January! Spot palladium hit a record high of $1,434.50 on Thursday. It has risen about 12% so far this month. The price of palladium, used mainly in emissions-reducing catalysts for vehicles, has leaped nearly 70% since mid-August. Prices for the metal overtook gold for the first time in 16 years early in December. According to ... ››› more

  • Should you avoid stocks in 2019?
  • South African stocks ended 2018 as the worst year since 2008. The FTSE/JSE Africa All Share Index ended the year down 11%, its worst performance since 2008. But this was still better than the emerging market average of -17%... It's fair to say that 2018 was a torrid year for investors especially considering it started very promising with SA's new president replacing Zuma… But a strin... ››› more

  • Don't bank on a Santa Claus rally this year - but don't exit your investments just yet
  • History shows that stocks go up around 75% of the time during December. What's more - the gains they post are typically bigger than for other months as well. The MSCI All Country World Index, which measures equity returns from 23 developed and 24 emerging markets, has declined just six times in December over the past three decades. That's gotten many investors and fund managers hopeful fo... ››› more

  • What 2018's double digit gainers have in common
  • 2018's been a tough year on the stock market. Based on the data I've filtered through there hasn't been a share that's returned more than 100% for the year to date! In fact, there have only been six shares to return more than 50% for the year so far! In total, there are 53 shares with 10%+ gains for 2018 to date… So, what do these companies have in common, and why are they up while ther... ››› more

  • The five biggest lies you've been told about penny stock investing
  • When you've been around the penny stock investing industry as long as I have, you get tired hearing the same old lies about penny stocks over and over. While these stories don't affect me at all, I am tired of how they discourage investors that are eager to start, and to learn more about the opportunities out there. So, give me a moment of your time today to tell you about the lies, and myth... ››› more

  • Seven investing questions everyone wants answered
  • At first glance investing seems inaccessible, confusing and sometimes even scary. But the concept really is simple - investors (like you) buy small pieces of companies called shares. The amount of money you make will be based on how well the company's share price does, and whether it gives you any share of the profits it makes (called dividends).   ... ››› more

  • Two things to look for when investing in dividend stocks
  • Dividends can make you massive returns. If for instance you bought Adapt IT in 2009, you'd have paid 44c per share. Since then the company has paid out 81.84cps in dividends - a return of 186% from dividends alone. Based on the latest dividend of 17.1cps, you'd make 38.8% on your original investment THIS YEAR ALONE.   ... ››› more

  • Where's the best place to invest your money right now?
  • “Francois, where should I take my money? ‘They' tell me to take as much as possible offshore right now. Is that the right place to invest?” With the three year return on the JSE sitting at a grand total of 9.49% many investors are asking me whether it is still relevant investing in the JSE. Perhaps inve... ››› more

  • How you can make massive returns off other people's money
  • I have a number of interests in private businesses. One startup that I invested money in is about to pay off in a big way. Suddenly I'm getting calls from investors wanting in on the opportunity…. But mere months ago - when the startup was burning through capital in order to get its products market ready investors didn't even want to give it a second glance. They were saying that there'... ››› more

  • A Ten-Fold growth opportunity sitting right in front of you thanks to Eskom's coal cliff
  • In May 2018 I told investors about Eskom's impending coal supply shortage, the Eskom Coal Cliff. For years Eskom hasn't invested in new coal mines, and it hasn't been willing to sign new contracts with large mining companies. Whilst diversification of supply is a good idea, the fact remains there are only a handful of miners that can supply the massive volumes that Eskom requires to keep its... ››› more

  • A TRIPLE whammy of catalysts will send this penny share higher in 2018
  • I always look for a catalyst that'll send the price of a penny stock flying. Being a good business isn't enough if there isn't something big that'll attract the attention of investors to the stock. But even better, every once in a while I find a stock that doesn't just have one catalyst but THREE catalysts that are behind it, which will push the share price up. And today I'd like to share wi... ››› more

  • Why did THIS penny share have a record sell off on 13 August 2018?
  • On 13 August Wescoal, a small coal miner on the JSE, had sales equaling to 3.5 million shares for the day. This is roughly equal to 18 times the average shares traded per day - for the last year! Clearly there was major interest in the company… And, considering that volume trade in the company is 30% higher since July than it has been for the past year you'd be right to guess there's so... ››› more
