  • Why the rising petrol price is here to stay
  • The petrol price in South Africa is breaking the R20 a litre level. December 2020 it sold for R14.26 a litre. That's an increase of 41.6% Sure - the 2020 level for petrol prices was a low base. Covid reduced demand and the oil price was really low. But the huge increases we're seeing now are hurting - and they'll definitely affect business as well. -------------------------------------------... ››› more

  • What expropriation through inflation means for you
  • What is a government to do if it has added billions, or even trillions of rands of debt in a short amount of time? South Africa's national debt increased 30% to R3.7 trillion in 2020. The US printed a fifth of all the money in all its history - in mere months. Simply put - these amounts are too big to just pay back. So, these governments need to use another tactic. The ‘raise cash' b... ››› more

  • An investment phenomenon as frightening as a robber in the night is coming for you
  • Ronald Reagan once said it is “as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber, and as deadly as a hitman.” Margaret Thatcher said “inflation is the parent of unemployment and the unseen robber of those who have saved.” The SA Reserve Bank didn't increase interest rates - as it expects inflation to stay in check. Most investors are simply ignoring the threat of inflation,... ››› more

  • With all this stimulus - should you be scared of hyperinflation?
  • Interest rates world-wide have been dropped to their lowest levels in history. The US is currently running a 0% - 0.25% interest rate, and the country is pumping TRILLIONS of dollars into its economy via quantitative easing. In Europe the same plan is being followed, in fact, there are in fact banks borrowing money from the European Central bank at -1% interest rates. This means banks are g... ››› more

  • Time is running out. You need to take action right now!
  • For the first time in nearly 16 years inflation is below the South African Reserve Bank's targeted range. Yesterday, Consumer Price Inflation (CPI) slowed to 2.1%. That's the lowest number since September 2004. Now, you're thinking inflation is low, that's a good thing, right? It's a bit more complicated. Let's explore…   ________________________________________   Di... ››› more

  • What happens if Moody's downgrades South Africa to JUNK?!
  • Q. “Hi Timon, I read the weekly article where you expect the JSE ALSI40 to rally. My question is, if Moody's does eventually decide to downgrade South Africa to junk what would happen and when is the next grading?” A. The next possible downgrading for South Africa would happen as soon as March, if South Africa fails to come up with a plan with “Credible debt-stabilisation”.  ... ››› more

  • The US just became the world's largest oil producer - here's what it means for investors
  • For years the Saudi's and Russia were the world's largest oil producers - with the US being a net importer of oil… But that's changed overnight. US oil production increased by 2 million barrels per day since 2018. The US now produces 12 million barrels of oil per day.

  • Should you avoid stocks in 2019?
  • 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. But this was still better than the emerging market average of -17%... It's fair to say that 2018 was a torrid year for investors especially considering it started very promising with SA's new president replacing Zuma… But a strin... ››› more

  • Shoprite's mayhem! - Why I expect the share price to drop another 37%
  • For the first time in 19 years, Africa's biggest grocer (Shoprite) reported its first annual earnings decline. With the Listeria outbreak, the higher fuel prices, the increased VAT, the ongoing strikes, 489 armed robberies and the ever-weakening rand this decline was inevitable.

  • Why the Oil price is set to slide
  • On 27 June I told Money Morning readers I expected the oil price to drop. That week saw the oil price start a slide which has been its longest downturn in three years! As you can see, the oil price has had seven weeks of downturns following end of June. This past week has seen it halt the decline, but I don't foresee this as a sustained upturn. Simply put - oil shouldn't trade above $70 a... ››› more

  • Why the oil price is set to slide
  • At the rate, the rand is weakening, and with a stronger oil price, we could see R20 petrol by end of 2018. At least that's what some economists are saying. But if it happens, it won't be due to the oil price. In fact, I foresee that the oil price is in for a dip soon… You my be interested in...   Get started with as little as R500 a month And it... ››› more

  • Why I'm calling a buy on the JSE, even though many call it expensive
  • “The JSE is too expensive, rather buy these offshore stocks”, if read this headline, and variations of it many times in the past year. Yet, my Red Hot Penny Shares readers would've banked an average gain on shares we sold of 22.21% in 2016. Whilst there are still calls to drop the JSE and put your money elsewhere I am optimistic. I believe 2017 can be just as good, or better, than ... ››› more
