  • 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

  • If you own investments in these two US sectors… Beware!
  • Isn't it amazing how one man can send shockwaves through global equity markets, just through a tweet. That's what investors have to deal with when it comes to US President Donald Trump and his trade wars. What's worse, there's no telling whether we've already witnessed the highest points of tension between the US and China in the battle over international trade. If precedent has taught... ››› 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

  • This is a bitter pill to swallow
  • Q. “I have some Rebosis shares. The price has recently crashed from over R10 a share to around R1.62 at today's price. In your opinion is it worth buying at this level to try and average down, or is it better to sell and take the loss.”   A. This is a bitter pill to swallow but it must be said with your trading.    I personally exit any trades that are moving in the wrong dir... ››› more

  • An investment opportunity contrarian investors dream about
  • You may or may not have heard of Jim Rogers, but he's one of the world's most successful investors. In the 1970s, Jim Rogers' Quantum Fund delivered a 4,000%-plus return to investors, while the S&P 500 gained just 42%. This incredible success early in his career enabled Rogers to retire at the age of 37! But this isn't the reason why I bring up Jim Rogers today. It all has to do w... ››› more

  • The ONLY six things that matter when you invest for real wealth
  • At a new year's party, a family member introduced me to a friend and mentioned to them that I work in the investment industry.   The guy leaned in and asked, “So what will the stock market do this year?”   To which I replied “There’s no way to be sure, and it’s not something I focus on when investing”   “How about the economy, will it grow again in 2019?... ››› more

  • The Most Important Investing Chart You'll Ever See
  • Today I'm going to share one of the most important charts in investing. As investors, we are risk-seeking when it comes to our losses, but we are risk-averse when it comes to our gains. What does that mean?  Well, we feel the pain of loss more intensely than we feel the pleasure of gain. Quite simply, we may like to... ››› more

  • Profit taking sees the JSE dip while global markets rally
  • The JSE was one of the few markets that ended last week lower. The Rand strengthened on the back of China being more passive in the “Trade War”. Commodity prices also pulled back last week causing the resources sector to impact the market performance. We've given up all the recent gains and are back in buying territory. SA equities are cheap when you compare the median P/E ratio of the All... ››› more

  • Viv Govender's found another investment gem
  • When a deal this good pops up, it must go out, no matter what the publishers say! Uncertainty spiked at the start of the year and it was very difficult to get good prices on guaranteed investments. Most financial institutions erred on the side of caution and charged extra for protection. Luckily, my persistent research and patience has paid off and we've found a diamond in the rough! ... ››› more

  • The Ramaphoria optimism has not resulted in any tangible results in Q1
  • Q1 GDP coming out at -2.2%, the worst since Q1 2009, reflects that the Ramaphoria optimism has not resulted in any tangible results and likely kept investors complacent. The rand strength is hard to explain and perhaps it will weaken while investors and portfolio managers digest the impact of these GDP figures on their investments. Look to pick up the quality rand hedges that have been sol... ››› more

  • This is one of the most common investor mistakes
  • Today I want to explain one of the biggest mistakes investor's make. It has nothing to do with what you invest in, where you invest or how much you invest. It goes much deeper than that.

  • Four things I wish I'd known before I started investing in property
  • I bought my first rental property at the age of 22. Luckily it turned out a great investment. But since then I've learnt a lot. Truth be told, there's a heap of things I wish someone had told me about when I first got started in property back then. The time, the money it could've saved me... I sure as heck would have gone a lot further a lot faster if I'd had a clue about some things. ... ››› more
