  • You need to avoid these to shares in July
  • The economy is opening up again following lockdown. Restaurants and hotels are opening their doors again, so it might sound like a good idea to take a bet on these companies share prices recovering quickly now… But before you do that, just give me a moment to explain why these sectors, and specifically two stocks in these sectors aren't headed for a recovery yet. ___________________... ››› more

  • Even if you hate me for this - I can't stay silent any longer
  • Some years ago I called out the Sharemax investment scheme. And I got flack from advisors and investors invested in the company - collecting fat dividends. But Sharemax crashed and burnt. And investors lost out big time.   In early March 2016 I warned investors that MMM Global would bankrupt them.   I received hate mail, MMM Global investors laughed at me. You see, they ... ››› more

  • How you can start investing today - even with a tiny amount of money
  • The word “investing” might conjure up men in suits, big deals around boardroom tables and the exchange of millions of rands. But today I'm here to tell you that investing is not just for the rich, it's not just for super smart financial gurus. And you don't have to be the Wolf of Wall Street to start investing. Even if you have only a few rands to spare, you can start investing today.... ››› more

  • What you need to know about dividend stocks today
  • Last week I received a letter from a Red Hot Penny Shares member asking about dividends from companies in our portfolio. ‘X' asked for the companies that pay the biggest dividends. But the answer to that question is a bit more intricate. You see, a company selling at R1 paying a 5c dividend could be more attractive than a R10 share paying a 30c dividend. But the 30c dividend is techn... ››› more

  • Now is a great time to start investing in shares
  • I bought my first shares in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis. My first buy was Old Mutual shares, and the price rose by more than 211% in the 18 months following my buy… I rolled some of my returns into a property company, and an industrial stock - in the end I turned a couple thousand rand as a student into enough money to pay for my studies, put down a deposit on my first propert... ››› more

  • Why the oil price crash could be bad for farmers - and great for this stock
  • The oil price crash, and subsequent low demand for fuel worldwide could be seen as a positive for businesses. Transport costs come down - meaning extra cash in the bank. You'd expect the same for farmers. But the low oil price could actually be a big negative for maize farmers the world over… Let me explain.   ________________________________________     Here&... ››› more

  • This news could cause a major headache for Eskom - and an opportunity for investors
  • Eskom recently submitted documents to the Centre for Environmental Rights (CER) stating that it could possibly keep its Grootvlei, Camden and Hendrina power stations open as late as 2030. These are all power stations at the end of their lives, that would have been shut in part starting this year! Eskom is doing this to keep extra capacity in the grid, and avoid load shedding. But here's t... ››› more

  • Five bear market survival strategies for investors
  • A bear market refers to a widespread decline in asset prices of at least 20%. We've seen stock markets fall 20% and more in recent months. The oil price fell through the floor, and unemployment is soaring. This is not a fun time to be in, and you might be confused, panicked or just blown away. The good news is, this is only a phase - and it will also pass. Things will turn around and l... ››› more

  • This 2007 report predicted what the Covid-19 crisis would do to our economy
  • While there have been epidemics in our lifetime, none have had the level of response from government's that we're now seeing. And while it's now become clear that we'll have to deal with lockdown measures for longer than many initially thought - we're also far enough through this crisis to start looking ahead. How will our economy recover, will it be quick or slow? Will we see inflatio... ››› more

  • Before you take a ‘payment holiday' from the bank - read this
  • Things are tough right now. 2 million people are receiving UIF payments this month, instead of their normal salaries. You might be worried about your business, your job security or how you'll pay bills at the end of the month. And now banks are offering you a ‘Payment Holiday'. In fact, some banks have offered payment holidays to clients even when they haven't asked… Now, befor... ››› more

  • This is a healthcare giant in the making
  • During this lockdown period I've been unwilling to even go to the shops. Not that I'm that scared of social contact - but I don't like dealing with road blocks. I've just heard too many stories of police brutality. So, I've been looking at every way to reduce my need to drive about. My butcher delivers my meat, a local farmer delivers fruits and veggies… And now, my wife's chronic m... ››› more

  • Breaking news: This move by government could send the gold price past $2,000
  • Just in: The South African Reserve Bank just lowered interest rates by another 1%, the second time in a month.   This puts the South African repo rate at a historic low!   We can write essays about what the lower interest rate means for business and consumers. But in short - lowering interest rates historically has meant one thing for gold. Its price goes up!   And as you can see in the c... ››› more

  • Watch out for the double-dip
  • When is the right time to buy our market for the recovery? That's the question I bet everyone's been asking. We all know how lucrative buying the bottom following the 2008 financial crisis was… And every investor certainly wants a repeat of that performance. ________________________________________     Five penny stocks for crisis profits   • How to pocket u... ››› more

  • Are your investments safe if your broker goes bust
  • This week I received a mail from a client asking me “How can I be sure my broker doesn't run away with my money - or that my investments are safe with them?” At first I thought it might be a bit dramatic - worrying about these things right now. But then I thought about the 2008 financial crisis and how Lehman Brothers went belly up. Lehman Brothers was one of the largest brokerages and inv... ››› more

  • How you can pocket up to 30% from this ‘sure thing' amidst market chaos
  • 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… ______________________________________... ››› more

  • When it makes sense to sell your shares
  • 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

  • If you missed the warnings signs on Steinhoff - don't miss them on this company
  • 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. ________________________________________   Three Penny Super... ››› more

  • You need to make sure you're using the right investment method when picking stocks
  • 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. ... ››› more
