  • The ultimate secret to pick value stocks with double or triple profit potential
  • Much of the 1920's was a time of great prosperity and growth in the US. Many technological developments like cars, radios, electricity became available to the American people. This economic boom fuelled the fast-rise of the US stock market. Everybody owned stocks, not only investors. Entrepreneurs, nurses, taxi drivers, you name it. It was everybody's ball-game. From 1920 to 1929, ... ››› more

  • Now is a great time to start investing in shares
  • I bought my first shares in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis. My first buy was Old Mutual shares, and the price rose by more than 211% in the 18 months following my buy… I rolled some of my returns into a property company, and an industrial stock - in the end I turned a couple thousand rand as a student into enough money to pay for my studies, put down a deposit on my first propert... ››› more

  • This is a healthcare giant in the making
  • During this lockdown period I've been unwilling to even go to the shops. Not that I'm that scared of social contact - but I don't like dealing with road blocks. I've just heard too many stories of police brutality. So, I've been looking at every way to reduce my need to drive about. My butcher delivers my meat, a local farmer delivers fruits and veggies… And now, my wife's chronic m... ››› more

  • COVID-19 + Junk Status + Recession fears = another 25% crash on the JSE
  • March 2020, will be known as one of the most brutal months that the JSE and the equity markets have ever seen. On 12 March, the index fell 9.51% and a further 11.98% on 16 March - two of the biggest daily drops since the 2008 Financial Crash. CEO - JSE, Leila Fourie, said in an interview about the value drop and trade volumes: “Over the past few weeks on average we've been processing... ››› more

  • When it makes sense to sell your shares
  • Buying a stock is only the first part of investing… Selling, and knowing when to sell is an even harder part. Especially when the markets are in trouble. And boy did we just have a tough week… with the JSE (and most global stock indices) down 10%+ on the back of the world economy. But does this mean you should sell your shares and head for the hills? Probably not… But let's h... ››› more

  • You need to make sure you're using the right investment method when picking stocks
  • There are two main methods you can use to pick stocks for investing or trading. I'm talking about terms called “fundamental” and “technical” analysis. You need to understand the differences between these methods - if you are to use them successfully as an investor… Use them correctly - and you stand to make big profits. Use them incorrectly and you could lose out big time. ... ››› more

  • Investing during Pullbacks, Corrections and Bear markets
  • Yesterday saw global stock markets retreat, sending the JSE and other emerging markets into a tailspin. This is on the back of the Coronavirus and a missile attack on the US embassy in Bagdad.

  • Two of my favourite contrarian investment ideas that can make you money in 2020
  • Sometimes taking a contrarian view of a market or investment, can pay off big time… One of my all-time favourite investors, Benjamin Graham, proved this nearly 100 years - during the Great Depression. When stocks crashed nearly 70%, Benjamin Graham didn't give up and avoid the stock market. In fact, he saw this as a perfect opportunity to make money by pinpointing bargain stocks from... ››› more

  • 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”. Simply these are shares that sit on suspiciously high dividend yields. You've probably heard me speak about these “income-traps” before, but in the South African Investor, I went further and reveale... ››› more

  • The next “High-yield investment trap” you must avoid now
  • In April 2019, I warned investors about Rebosis - A JSE listed property company that had a dividend yield of 57%. You see, at the time, a yield this high was very unusual for a company listed in SA. So I warned investors not to fall for this “high yield investment trap” And, since then, the company cut its dividend completely and its shares have plummeted from 162c to 32c - around an ... ››› more

  • Grow your portfolio with these JSE “Safe Haven” investment opportunities
  • Week after week, market commentators highlight how investors are not making positive returns in USD. The US dollar is king now, with it paying a positive yield and investors who have missed the gold rally are hording it. This has caused liquidity to be squeezed. It's increasingly likely that President Trump will use the 1934 Gold Reserve Act to sell US Dollars and buy foreign currency as a way... ››› more

  • What you should know before investing offshore
  • By now, I assume, most investors would agree, having all your money invested in SA is a bad idea. Our low growth, unstable politics and a volatile currency are important considerations. However, the most important reason to invest offshore, is the local investment universe is simply too small. At less than 0.6% of global GDP, South Africa is simply too small to provide you with enough opportun... ››› more

  • Does it still pay to invest in gold?
  • Gold's been a form of money, an investment and a store of value for almost as long as modern day man has walked the earth. Some argue gold is a barbaric relic that no longer holds the monetary qualities of the past. They say paper currency, or electronic currencies such as Bitcoin, are the assets of choice. But the fact remains that gold has been a very stable appreciating asset for centur... ››› more

  • You need to avoid this investment trap
  • “Francois - AEEI shares look really attractive. The company's interim earnings showed a profit of 38.67cps and the company's net asset value is a whopping R10 - while the share price is a mere R2.55. Certainly there must be upside potential here?” Surely a company trading at a 74.5% discount to its assets and a PE of 6.59 on half year earnings is cheap, and a certain buy? Well, in some... ››› more
