  • JSE break-out after more than three years of trading sideways?
  • The JSE's rally from late June accounts for all the growth we've seen this year. The bullish tone is threatening a break above the trading range which has confined the market for more than three years. As in common at this stage, small caps and midcaps have lagged significantly and we expect them to play catch up. Mid-caps to consider include: MicroMega, Santova, AdvTech and AECI. **... ››› more

  • Budgets, Two to buy and two to sell this week
  • The Budget was delivered without too much fuss. Everyone knew there would be a “Gap” and the balancing act was to find a suitable filler. The new tax bracket was a bit of a surprise, but the hiking of the marginal tax rate was expected. Never the less bracket creep was significant so everybody shoulders the burden. In SA, the market fell 1%; Gold shares were under pressure as the Rand held ... ››› more

So this is a big deal - it is nearly 50% of Wescoal's total share capital being added. Usually a deal that dilutes earnings as much as this one will, is a bad thing. Shareholders don't like it.
