  • The JSE is on sale - and these investors are pocketing big time
  • In 2019 alone there have been 19 shares delisted from the JSE. Not because they're bankrupt… Or have violated regulations Or just because it's too costly No… They are companies that were selling for WAY less than what they were worth. Companies that have been grabbed up by astute investors, companies and funds that know the profits they make are worth a lot more than t... ››› 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.

  • Revealed! My new target for Gold!
  • Gold is a funny creature. When the stock markets perform well, you'll see gold sleeping. When the economy is stable, the world at peace and there is nothing troubling in the media - it's like gold doesn't exist. And what I mean by this is that, gold goes sideways. But right now, as global turmoil rises, North Korea threatens a nuclear war, economies crumble as global debt accelerates a... ››› more

  • Pravin Gordhan believes South Africa will dodge another recession
  • So far this year, you've heard the word recession a lot. It's a real threat to the economy right now.
