  • Last week, I warned investors about this “income-trap” and it just crashed 31%!
  • In November's issue of the South African Investor, I warned readers about two types of “danger” shares lurking on the JSE. One of these types is called the “High-Yielder”.

  • The Only Income Investment to Buy in 2019!
  • Before Donald Trump escalated trade wars, which sent shockwaves through the markets, stocks were performing well overall. The major US indices like the Nasdaq and S&P500 were flying.

  • What is real income and how do you make it?
  • Do you know what the true meaning of generating an income is? It's not selling a TV or some furniture for a few thousand bucks. It's certainly not getting paid to take online marketing surveys.

  • The Year that was - The biggest winner of 2016 was the Rand!
  • 2016 has been a year many will quickly forget, but for the shock results of the Brexit vote and the US elections; it was a year where many cans were kicked down the road. Global growth remained benign and potential silver-linings have yet to gain material traction because of lingering uncertainties such as the future US foreign policy, the tensions in South East Asia, lingering debt problems i... ››› more

  • These days, investing for attractive income returns is extremely hard to come by. Money market funds at most pay you 7.3%. The average share on the JSE is only paying investors around 2.9% in dividends per year. And once you factor in inflation, you're basically getting nothing! But there is a way, you can invest for income and receive a return… That beats every money market ... ››› more

  • Uber is no doubt one of the most convenient and cost effective transport solutions in the country right now. As an avid Uber user myself, I've never waited more than five minutes for the driver to pick me up once I make the booking on the user friendly app. The car is always clean, the driver is always friendly and I've never had an incident where I was unhappy with the service. It's safe... ››› more

  • Property in South Africa is too big a risk to invest…
