  • How you can buy Capitec and other JSE shares at 20%, 30% and 50% discounts
  • Right now Capitec shares trade at R1,384. But what if I told you that you could get hold of these shares - and benefit from their upwards movement - at a discount of 20%?

Well, I've uncovered scores of t... ››› more

  • Keep your hands off my pension
  • If you're in your 50's you might have heard of ‘prescribed assets' before - for millennials this term might be ‘foreign'. But it is very actual - in fact it's from the 1980's and it was part of the Apartheid government playbook. In short - the government back then forced pension funds through legislation to invest up to 77.5% of their funds into parastatals and government bonds. No... ››› more

  • What is Net Asset Value - and what does it tell you about stocks?
  • When you're looking for stocks to invest in you'll typically either use fundamental investing strategies (looking at financial and other real world data) or technical analysis (looking at charts and price movement to predict future moves).

  • 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.

Kahn began working on Wall Street in 1928 during a roaring bull market and becam... ››› more

  • 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.
