  • 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. But if it wasn't for this, it would have been something else… Investor sentiment has been high, pushing major US indices to all-time highs and others including the JSE to recent highs.     ... ››› more

  • 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

  • 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
