  • Why on earth would a company buy back its own shares?
  • Right now, there are scores of companies doing share buy backs of their own shares. Think of Argent, Onelogix, Bowler Metcalf, Insimbi, Mpact and Trellidor… And these are just a handful of penny stocks. There are many more on the JSE actively buying shares in themselves. So why would a company do this, and is it good or bad? ________________________________________   No ord... ››› more

  • The perfect small stock to play the coming R150 billion health sector growth
  • There have been many changes that the coronavirus pandemic has forced on us. And the healthcare sector perhaps has seen some of the most profound changes. Whether we're managing a chronic condition, like high blood pressure, or an acute illness like strep throat, the market demand for these healthcare needs hasn't decreased a bit. But COVID-19 has made getting in to see a doctor at their offic... ››› more

  • Recession, what recession - these shares are set to rocket in 2021
  • Following last year's lockdowns, and the protracted economic pressure on businesses due to the Covid-19 pandemic - South Africa's economy is in recession. Unemployment is up. And there's a lot of suffering around. But with every crisis comes opportunity… And for astute stock pickers the opportunity has never been better…   Why, just yesterday one of my favourite stocks fo... ››› more

  • How to invest in Cannabis in 2021
  • Did you know the Scotch Whisky industry makes Scotland around as much money as the entire platinum mining industry makes in South Africa. That's if you combine its contributions from whisky exports and tourism! Now what if I told you Africa could soon get a very big boost to its economies on the same scale as Scotch to Scotland… Most probably even bigger! What am I talking about? ... ››› more

  • Don't underestimate the interest rate effect
  • Interest rates in SA are at a generational low - this might be the lowest we'll see them for many years to come. And while the opportunity is here - it's clear that many home buyers and businesses are grabbing it. A recent report from bond originator, OOBA, shows that in the fourth quarter of 2020 home loan applications shot up a whopping 36% compared to the same quarter in 2019. The major... ››› more

  • When the big guys start taking notice of a penny stock - you should pay attention
  • For the past year I've been telling investors small cap companies are selling for a fraction of their true worth - despite the pandemic and SA's economic woes. And with the small cap index jumping 17% in the past three months, it certainly looks like the momentum is building. In fact, in the past week I've noticed an institutional research report being released on a small company I've been... ››› more

  • 2021 starts off with a bang for small-cap shares!
  • Small cap stocks have had a tough time in recent years. While the underlying businesses in many cases did really well - their share prices didn't. Between March 2016 and March 2020 the Small Cap Index was down 44%. In the last 6 months though, the Small Cap Index is up 25%, erasing a great portion of its past losses. And thus far 2021 looks like a scorcher for small companies. In t... ››› more

  • These penny stocks are running - don't ignore this opportunity
  • Between May 2015 and May 2018, the JSE Small Cap Index went nowhere. And between May 2018 and May 2020 it dropped 44.68%. Since then however the Small Cap Index is up 29%. That's a huge rally in just six months. But here's the thing. It's not over yet. The small companies in this index aren't even back to the levels they traded, at the start of 2020. Never mind their 2018 highs… ... ››› more

  • Read this if you've sold a stock too early
  • Have you ever wanted to kick yourself because you sold a stock that just kept going up and up? It happens to the best of us… Earlier this year, at Red Hot Penny Shares it happened with DRD Gold. We bought the stock at 265c in June 2019 and sold it at 1577c in May 2020. Adding in the dividends we received I was very happy with a 519.62% gain. A mere 2 months later the stock hi... ››› more

  • What's going on with the JSE's property stocks?
  • Property stocks on the JSE have had an atrocious year. Right now, they're still around 46% lower than they were one year ago. We all know that many landlords, especially in the retail space, had empty shops and tenants that couldn't pay during the hard lockdown… But the property index has started a turnaround. Since 1 November 2020 the SA Listed Property Index (SAPY) is up 15.81%. ... ››› more

  • Crypto is about to officially become regulated - here's what you need to know
  • For years now the Crypto asset space has been marred by companies like MIT, MMM Global and more. While there was nothing wrong with the asset class as such - the industry was like the wild west. Until recently when there was a crypto scam, or investors were defrauded there was basically nothing to be done. The SARB said that it did not regulate crypto currencies, and investors should conta... ››› more

  • There's huge upside brewing in these hated investments
  • Financial advisors hate penny stocks… Fund managers barely ever invest in them. But if there's one thing that these tiny shares have shown over the years it's that they've got huge upside potential. In 2020 alone Red Hot Penny Shares reader have banked a 274% gain on Pan African Resources, 519% on DRD Gold and 111% on Quantum Food Holdings… Most investors can only dream of these kind ... ››› more

  • How do elections affect the stock market?
  • Right now everyone's talking about the US presidential elections. While the US president doesn't directly affect us - what happens to the US economy affects the entire world. So, there's definitely some merit in keeping an eye on the Americans… Similarly - in 2021 we'll have local government elections again in SA as well. So how do elections affect the stock market? And is there anything... ››› more

  • When Transnet stumbles, this penny share profits
  • Transnet results are out - and they're shocking. The company had irregular expenditure of R10 billion for the year, losses on revaluations of R31.1 billion and a comprehensive loss for the year at R18.4 billion. On the back of this I'm sure you've seen trains being burned, looted or sabotaged during the last year or so. While this is a sad state of affairs, something we're getting more... ››› more

  • Is this the most difficult investment decision you've ever made?
  • “Buy when there's blood on the streets!” “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” As we've been faced with the current crisis, I'm sure you've heard many commentator's say now is the time to buy into shares. Shares are at decade long lows, and the cheapest they've been in a generation… During the week I read a letter that a client sent his brok... ››› more

  • Three indicators of a big recovery in this sector in 2021
  • Right now, the agriculture sector is one of the spots of excellence in South Africa, and its being treated very well thanks to a double whammy of record-breaking harvests, and increasing commodity prices. This is good news for the SA economy. It means the agricultural sector could employ more people, putting money in the consumers' pocket. It means there are many supporting businesses and ... ››› more

  • Is SA's new R30 billion city a hot investment opportunity or not?
  • “Ramaphosa launched R30billion Mooikloof Mega Residential City Project” I'm sure you've seen this headline, or something like it in the last few days. But what is this project really? And is it a great investment opportunity, or even something you should take note of or not? ________________________________________   These three cryptos are set to ride the next crypto wav... ››› more

  • This could signal the end of load shedding - and a boost to private business in SA
  • Load shedding has been a headache for us all. If you hoped it would end thanks to maintenance Eskom did during lockdown - you were disappointed. As our economy has been opening up we've sporadically had load shedding, with a turn very close to the highest amount of reduced supply in SA's history. It's become clear that the solution to this problem likely won't come from Eskom alone… ... ››› more

  • Why March 2021 is a crucial date if you've got a pension fund or RA
  • Odds are you have a pension fund, or money invested in a retirement annuity. For good reason - we all need to prepare for retirement. And the tax benefits are a great benefit to these retirement funds. But if you're planning on emigrating - even if it is something you've got planned for your distant future, you should listen up… Come March 2021 and your plans could become considerabl... ››› more

  • Why SA's 51% GDP drop is already irrelevant news
  • On 8 September South Africa's GDP figures for the second quarter of 2020 was released. Our economy shrank by 51% annualised in the three months between April and June 2020. This has put us into the longest recession in the past 28 years. Sectors like mining fell 73.1%, manufacturing fell 74.9% and construction shrank by 76.6%. This is bad. But even though it was just released, i... ››› more
