  • The two MOST important things to know before you invest in cryptos
  • Here's something quite interesting… According to Statista, out of the 400,000 crypto-investors across 46 countries it surveyed, South Africa came in fifth place, as 16% of the population said they used or owned cryptocurrencies. Yes, you could argue it's a small study. However, it still reveals an increasing interest in cryptos from South Africans. In fact, because of the rising dema... ››› more

  • Bitcoin: “A bet on the future; a shelter for the present"
  • The quote above is what Jehan Chu, managing partner at blockchain investment and advisory firm Kenetic Capital in Hong Kong, recently said about Bitcoin. What made him say this? Well, last week Donald Trump continued his ‘tariff tantrum' by adding 10% tariffs on another $300 billion in Chinese imports, starting 1 September. China retaliated by asking state buyers to halt American ag... ››› more

  • The biggest threat to China is a… cryptocurrency
  • When Facebook announced plans to launch its new digital currency Libra, it was met with fear…Especially in China. When questioned on Facebook's Libra at a press conference, the founder and CEO of Huawei hit back saying, “China can also issue such a [crypto]currency by itself. Why wait for others to issue it? The power of a country is always stronger than an Internet company.” The ... ››› more

  • Does blockchain hold the answer to the internet's biggest challenge?
  • In the growing world of online, data privacy is of the utmost importance. Even more so if you're a company that stores people personal data. In this day and age, if you fail to protect personal data, you will suffer major backlash.

  • Why Tether's major supply shift is good news for Ethereum investors
  • Tether is a name that comes up again and again in crypto. It's been called negative things like a ‘scam' and ‘fraudulent'.   On the other hand, as a stablecoin, it’s also been called ‘the most useful cryptocurrency in existence’, since its price is pegged to the dollar.    But today I’m not here to join in on this debate.     Instead, I’m going to sh... ››› more

  • How to avoid ‘fake crypto' trading
  • Like many financial instruments, it's in a crypto's interest to get big trading volume numbers on exchanges. This shows that people are taking an interest in it and are actually using it. It shows investors believe in the crypto's project. It is also in exchanges' interest to have large volumes of crypto traded. The higher volume your exchange has the more trustworthy it seems, and the mor... ››› more

  • The ‘Bitcoin-Gold' connection
  • Right now, many investors are scrambling to find assets that don't follow the swings of the stock market. Their first choice is gold. You see, gold has constantly proved itself as a supreme store of value. If investors get scared by financial or political news, gold makes a great insurance policy.

  • Should you invest in a company that pays ‘special dividends'?
  • As you may know, many shares pay dividends. A dividend is a portion of a company's earnings that it pays to its shareholders. Usually this payment happens once or twice a year. And because they offer this added benefit of a regular income stream, income-seekers love dividend-paying stocks. But occasionally, companies surprise investors by electing to pay a ‘special dividend'. Special... ››› more

  • 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. Even the JSE All Share was showing good returns. From its lowest level to its highest, the JSE was up around 14%. A great comeback from 2018's negative return. However, while stocks were making all the ... ››› 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

  • These two charts show the crypto boom is just getting started
  • 2019 is shaping up to be a stellar year for crypto investors. If you bought the two biggest cryptos - bitcoin and ethereum - at the beginning of 2019, you'd be sitting on gains of 63% and 29% respectively. That's more than double the returns of the S&P500 and the JSE All Share. But, cryptos are more than just about prices and gains. There are bigger things happening behind the ... ››› more

  • This recession indicator is giving me a MAJOR buy signal right now
  • Last month in the South African Investor, I wrote about the world's most-feared recession indicator, the yield curve.   More specifically, if the yield curve is signalling an upcoming recession.     Now remember, the yield curve plots the interest rates of the 10-year US Treasury note (long-term rate) and the 3-month US Treasury bill (short term rate).   When short-term i... ››› more

  • Is Clicks' dividend safe? The answer lies in three simple charts
  • The only way to live a worry-free retirement these days is to have steady streams of income coming in, month after month. Without income you can count on, you're dependent on your retirement annuity to get by. And that's not a spot you want to be in… That's why, part of my job as Real Wealth editor, is to find investments that consistently pay investors dividends - as well as - investmen... ››› more

  • The ‘Ultimate Paycheque' for a rich retirement
  • Imagine investing R100,000 in a company and receiving over R600,000 in dividends alone… Or investing the same amount and getting back nearly R200,000 just in dividends… Now that's serious income that could guarantee a comfortable retirement. Now imagine owning six of these shares right now… I'd call that the ‘Ultimate Paycheque' retirement. And as I said, I've identified si... ››› more

  • Don't be fooled by this stocks' 57% dividend yield
  • Right now, there's one JSE listed company who has a dividend yield of 57%. That's unheard of in JSE listed companies. But it's true. In fact, it could be one of, if not the highest dividend yield I've ever come across from a JSE listed company. Just consider this… The JSE All Share's dividend yield is just over 3%. This means, the company has a yield nearly 20x higher than the av... ››› more
