  • When fear grows - these stocks soar
  • The rand is at R15.37 to the dollar - the weakest we've seen since the Zuma era. We can blame this on NHI, EWC or a string of other three lettered government policies that aren't business friendly. But at the end of the day the whole world is running scared right now.

  • Three market beating gold shares

  • South Africa's deep mines are dying - but these companies are set to profit big time!
  • South Africa sits with the ‘achievement' of having 8 out of the world's ten deepest mines.
