  • Investors are looking left… when they should be looking right
  • The only thing on investors' minds right now is the US election. At the time of writing the final votes have yet to be tallied. Right now, many battleground states are still up for grabs, with Pennsylvania looking like the key to victory. Trump has already claimed the win and approached the courts filing multiple lawsuits in most of the swing states. He's demanded a recount in Wisconsin. A... ››› 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

  • Gary Booysen: When should you sell stocks?
  • 2020 has been one hell of a year. Coronavirus has ravaged most markets and yet certain stock markets have hit record highs. Unbelievable! Whatever the reason for the run up, the obvious divergence of share prices from the underlying reality seems to be all too apparent to professional investors.

  • 3 Checks to Protect Your Portfolio as Airlines Crash and Burn…
  • It was quite a week for airline stocks. It started with the announcement from Warren Buffett that Berkshire Hathaway had sold stakes in four major US airlines: United, Delta, Southwest and American Airlines. This is an exceptionally uncharacteristic move from the legendary value investor. Firstly, Buffett is all about “buy and hold”. He rarely sells investments unless, the prospect... ››› more

  • Don't believe the bounce. Now is the time to buy gold
  • What a horrible start to the year. Just four months ago most people were dreaming about all the possibilities the new decade held. The world's newspapers and blogs were full of what could potentially be coming in the next 10 years. The widespread use of driverless electric cars. The excitement and fear over the rise of a real artificial Intelligence. And the massive advances in healthcare scie... ››› more

  • Gary Booysen's Black Friday Stock Picks!
  • Black Friday is almost upon us. And many shoppers are already hunting for potential “Black Friday” bargains. But I have another idea for you… As ordinary South Africans head to the stores, set on spending more, owning more and having more, why don't you park the trolley and, instead take this opportunity to treat your future-self.

  • Concerned about the yield curve? Find out what to do when recession hits…
  • Markets have been incredibly skittish over the last week. And, while there are many reasons for concern, one of the main issues driving share prices lower is fear over the “inverted yield curve”. If you skim the financial news, you'll see headlines like: “Yield curve inversion hammers US small banks” “Bond market yield curve inverts, signalling Fed may be too slow to cut... ››› more

  • Selecting a financial advisor is like bungee jumping... or medicine
  • Bungee jumping is a terrifying experience. It requires you to risk your life (literally) on the strength of a piece of rubberised string. Now the statistics are very clear: Bungee jumping is safe. But, when you tip toe to the edge of Bloukrans bridge, look over into the abyss and push off into blue sky with nothing but an elastic around your ankles… well you get the picture. Fina... ››› more

  • Goldfields and the three profitable bears
  • On 20 January 2017 Friday evening, Donald J Trump became the 45th president of the United States. We saw the markets welcome the transition of power. But we also know the sentiment is fickle as weather. In today's Trading Tips, and in honour of his inauguration, I want to look at three bearish (downside) trading set ups and one safe-haven gold trade. Enjoy… These companies may ... ››› more

  • 3 CFD strategies to help you trade a volatile market…
  • Last week, we published the kind of recommendation I prefer not to put into the public domain. • First, it was a short-recommendation. • Second it was a short-recommendation on an established, stable and, what most people would consider, blue-chip company. • Third, it used a fairly advanced trading instrument that's often misunderstood by the general public. But, in spite of these ... ››› more

  • Hedge Funds in a modern world and how you can use it to profit
  • Last month, I had the privilege of speaking to Gary Booysen as we prepared our articles for The South African Investor publication.
