  • 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

  • Are the JSE's small caps good buys - or not?
  • There are 322 shares on the JSE with market capitalisations of lower than R5 billion. These shares (bar a few ETFs and Preference shares) we can call ‘small caps'. These are the smaller shares on the JSE that don't fit into the Top 40, or the Mid Cap indices. We can further segment these shares - looking only at PENNY SHARES. These are small caps with share prices below R10. Of these sha... ››› more

  • If you hold property or retail shares you need to read this
  • If you hold property stocks, or one of the big four supermarket chains you need to listen up… A major new finding by the Competition Commission is coming into effect, and it could have far reaching implications for these companies. Let me show you in more detail. ________________________________________   Is this the secret to becoming a stock market millionaire?    ... ››› more

  • What you need to know about stock buyouts
  • JSE listed stocks are selling at their cheapest levels in a decade. And that's created an opportunity for internationally listed, and private equity companies to make a mint. You see, these companies borrow money internationally at 3%, 4% or 5% interest. They then buy these South African companies that are selling cheaply and the dividends they receive from them are enough to repay their b... ››› more

  • Is the JSE losing its monopoly?
  • For almost 130 years the JSE was the only stock exchange in South Africa. But as of a couple of years ago that changed when three new exchanges were given stock exchange licences. In 2019 the JSE has seen 21 companies de-list. Digging a little deeper, it's important to take note of what's been happening with the competition…   All three of these JSE competitors are growing ... ››› more

  • Up 60% in three months - Jubilee's share price keeps rising
  • Jubilee Metals group is up more than 60% since mid-August 2019. Back then the share price was at a low of around 51c. Today it's at 90c. So what caused this meteoric rise in share price in such a short time? Well, Jubilee is a tiny JSE listed metals and mining company. But instead of digging holes in the ground it digs through old mine dumps - taking every last bit of valuable metal ou... ››› more

  • Is this the catalyst that'll send gold to new all-time highs?
  • In October 2019 the US Federal Reserve Bank announced that instead of shrinking its balance sheet by $50 billion a month it is now PRINTING $60 billion worth of money extra per month! That's right… The bank was in the process of unwinding the nearly $4 trillion worth of money it printed to get the US economy going following the 2008 financial crisis. Now it is printing more money each mo... ››› more

  • Why you need to make sure you get in on these JSE ‘Black Friday Specials'
  • We all know how ‘Black Friday' sees the most incredible deals in shops every year… These deals are typically 30%, 40% and 50% discount on everything you buy. In the same way I foresee great ‘Black Friday' specials on the JSE this year. What am I talking about? Well, since 2018 there have been around 35 companies delisted from the JSE. Around 10% of all the small cap shares on... ››› more

  • Small Cap, Mid Cap and Large Cap stocks - what's the difference?
  • So you've heard the terms bandied about. Small Cap, Mid Cap and Big Cap stocks. What does this mean - and how do stocks get labelled as either a small or mid cap for instance? It is important to know the differences between these different categories of shares - as it will affect your investment strategy… ________________________________________   ‘The Great JSE Takeove... ››› more

  • The JSE is on sale - and these investors are pocketing big time
  • In 2019 alone there have been 19 shares delisted from the JSE. Not because they're bankrupt… Or have violated regulations Or just because it's too costly No… They are companies that were selling for WAY less than what they were worth. Companies that have been grabbed up by astute investors, companies and funds that know the profits they make are worth a lot more than t... ››› more

  • Is it now time to bail on JSE listed stocks for good?
  • The JSE is down 3.95% for the past three months, 5.13% in the past six and we're only up 8% over the past three years. With politics the way they are and the performance of the South African economy many investors are asking whether they should bail on SA listed stocks for good. I'll give you my take on the situation now, let's first have a look at the facts: SA’s economy is already... ››› more

  • Higher platinum demand HALVES surplus stocks - could this be the year for platinum?
  • The platinum price has been depressed for a couple of years because of high surpluses on the back of mining and recycling of the metal putting more of it in the system than is being bought up by investors and producers. But 2019 saw this take a turn. Platinum demand for 2019 is already up significantly. Full year forecasts puts the metal's demand at 8,045 koz, compared to the 2018 figure o... ››› more

  • This chart shows today's hottest investment
  • Right now there's one sector I'm particularly excited about on the JSE. I recently banked a 150%+ gain from a share in less than 4 months in this sector, and I believe it has only started running. I'm talking about Gold… And while the shiny metal itself has delivered investors very good returns over the years, right now gold miners are in an even better position to profit. Let me... ››› more

  • South Africa's economy is saved from recession - but we're not out of the woods yet
  • The latest release from StatsSA showed that South Africa's economy grew 3.1% for the second quarter of 2019. This was better than the 2.5% expected by most economists, and it's a good sign for South African's who were worried about recession hitting. Unfortunately, this growth doesn't necessarily mean our economy is growing again… With first quarter GDP shrinking 3.2%, 3.1% growth do... ››› more

  • Sasol: When mega-projects turn into mega-mistakes
  • A couple of years ago Sasol announced it would enter the US market by building an ‘ethane cracker'. A massive petrochemicals plant called Lake Charles that would require it to invest nearly as much as its market cap was at the time. The company said this was where its future lay, and the project would change the face of the company forever. Right now however Sasol shares are at their low... ››› more

  • Sanity ALWAYS prevails when investing - EVENTUALLY
  • Sometimes the stock market behaves inexplicably. Quality companies trade at unbelievable discounts. Or they sell at prices so high that you might flinch. What makes this difficult to muster is the fact that these ‘discrepancies' tend to keep going on for much longer than you'd think possible. One such share was Curro Holdings. The company listed in July 2011 and investors could p... ››› more

  • When fear grows - these stocks soar
  • The rand is at R15.37 to the dollar - the weakest we've seen since the Zuma era. We can blame this on NHI, EWC or a string of other three lettered government policies that aren't business friendly. But at the end of the day the whole world is running scared right now. Thanks to the US trade war, negative bond yields in many European countries and increasing world debt. In fact, for t... ››› more

  • One of the top penny stocks to watch in September 2019
  • By definition, Penny Stocks trade at R10 or less and they're typically small companies with big growth potential. These investments are attractive because small share price moves translate into large percentage gains - or losses if you pick the wrong stock. In short, these are volatile investments, so you're advised to use caution. But if you're looking for one of these top penny stock com... ››› more

  • Suddenly $1,900 gold doesn't look that crazy any more…
  • In June 2019 I told readers that gold is headed higher… Back then I had a longer term target of $1,900 in mind. Today, the gold price is already $100 higher than it was back then. The rand is also weaker - leading to a rand gold price of more than R750,000/kg. That is R110,000 per kilo more than it was in June... Gold has suddenly become so bullish that Goldman Sachs just upgraded it... ››› more
