The effect of the Corona Virus and its panic has been huge on our, and other markets around the world.
Due to these events you might be wondering “what are the stocks that have dropped the most, and are any of them buys right now?”

Stock markets are going crazy. For the past couple of days nearly every market in the world is down, by 5% or more!
Individual shares have seen drops of 20%, 30% and even 50% in a single day.
But despite that, there's a ‘sure thing' investment that could net you as much as 30% on your money within the next month or two!
Let me explain…

Buying a stock is only the first part of investing… Selling, and knowing when to sell is an even harder part.
Especially when the markets are in trouble.
And boy did we just have a tough week… with the JSE (and most global stock indices) down 10%+ on the back of the world economy.
But does this mean you should sell your shares and head for the hills?
Probably not… But let's h... ››› more
Since 2018 I've been telling investors that this company is in trouble.
When I wrote about it in 2019, calling it Steinhoff 2.0, the share price was 862c. This week it was 59% lower at 352c.
But instead of fixing its problems this company has kicked up its ‘dodgy' dealings by a BIG notch…
Let's have a look.

There are two main methods you can use to pick stocks for investing or trading.
I'm talking about terms called “fundamental” and “technical” analysis.
You need to understand the differences between these methods - if you are to use them successfully as an investor…
Use them correctly - and you stand to make big profits. Use them incorrectly and you could lose out big time.

In the race to the world's first public company worth a Trillion Dollars, Apple is closer than ever!
Between November and December 2017, the company hit $900 billion - nearing the Trillion dollar mark…
With the IPhone, IPod and IPad - Apple has managed to become the largest company in the world!

The gold price sits at R23,044 an ounce - with its recent all time high at R23,721 per ounce.
In early 2018 gold was below R16,000 an ounce. So the shiny metal is up around 44% in 2 years!
This is being driven by the weak rand, as well as a rising dollar gold price.
Within mere months I expect we will see the rand gold price hit R26,000 levels.

Mark Twain wasn't wrong when he said:
“History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”
The more things change, the more they stay the same - this is true when it comes to the fear, greed and herd mentality in the markets... If you've been investing long enough you will see the same patterns on repeat.
Just think back to the 2007/2008 financial crisis…

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

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 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.

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
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

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
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
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
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…

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
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
