  • 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.

  • Last week, I warned investors about this “income-trap” and it just crashed 31%!

  • 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
