  • What China's banking crisis means for you
  • The term banking crisis is often overused. Certainly, there are times when it's appropriate, like during the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, however it's usually just a term used to describe a rather minor disruption to the normal functioning of a country's banking sector. Well, that's not the case with China currently. The country is in the midst of a true banking crisis. How bad is it? Well, th... ››› more

  • Is the bear market nearing its end?
  • The JSE crashed 14.45% between 2 March 2022 and 9 May 2022. Similarly, the Dow Jones index in the USA is down 10.74% year to date of which half of this drop has been in the past month. And the S&P 500 index is down 14.75% year to date. We hear about inflation, war, lockdowns, supply chain issues all as contributing to this bear market… So, what is fuelling the market's drop - and are we... ››› more

  • Should you have a Personal Share Portfolio inside your Retirement or Living Annuity?
  • For most South Africans their Retirement Annuity (RA) is something they think about twice in their life. First when they sign up for their monthly debit order and second when they're getting close to retirement and need to access the money. In between, your cash is likely spread across a selection of unit trusts that are largely based on the JSE. For offshore investments (which usually get a... ››› more

  • China's Tech Crackdown isn't ending anytime soon
  • Last year Jack Ma, the Alibaba Founder, gave a speech where he uttered a couple of very minor criticisms of the Chinese economic system. At the time of the speech, he was one of the richest and most famous people in China. In addition, Alibaba was one of the largest companies not just in China, but the world. If that wasn't enough, he was set to list another giant, the Ant Group, which was the ... ››› more

  • Gold rockets through $2000 per ounce
  • I think we can all agree. 2020 is completely nuts! In the last week, we saw a nuclear-sized explosion in Beirut, after 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate flattened the port city. Trump is trying to force Chinese-backed TikTok to sell its US interests to Microsoft (with the US treasury getting a slice of the action) in what has to be the strangest M&A deal in history. And we have both the te... ››› more

  • Is the international market undervaluing this share by 90%?
  • The rise of the World Wide Web turned the world of shopping on its head. One company that cashed in massively was the USA's Amazon.com. This company is now the biggest eCommerce retailer in the world. And, in spite of Covid-19, lockdowns and (in case you've forgotten) a simmering trade war between the US and China, Amazon's share price has just reached all-time highs. When looking eas... ››› more

  • 3 Checks to Protect Your Portfolio as Airlines Crash and Burn…
  • It was quite a week for airline stocks. It started with the announcement from Warren Buffett that Berkshire Hathaway had sold stakes in four major US airlines: United, Delta, Southwest and American Airlines. This is an exceptionally uncharacteristic move from the legendary value investor. Firstly, Buffett is all about “buy and hold”. He rarely sells investments unless, the prospect... ››› more

  • The Butterfly Effect may blow up Africa
  • You may have heard of the Butterfly Effect. Chaos theory predicts it is possible for the flap of a butterfly's wing in China to cause a hurricane in the US. Though this sounds like fantasy, we may actually be witnessing one of the greatest “butterfly effects” in history. A little while ago, likely in 2019, a single virus particle made a jump from bats to humans. In terms of scale, this... ››› more

  • Vaccinate your portfolio from COVID-19 with these 4 shares
  • Last week was a scary time for most investors as global markets racked up new records for the fastest 10% pullback in history. The worst weekly decline for the American indices since the 2008 financial crisis. And, the biggest single day decline for most markets as the bottom fell out of the market. These concerns are over the impact to global growth from the shut down and restrictions in Chi... ››› more

  • COVID-19 Virus sell-off gives buying opportunity
  • Yesterday saw markets react decisively to the risk of COVID-19 to global growth. With most markets pulling back over 3%. This is due to an acceleration of new infections outside of China. It has hit Europe as Italy reports the 7th death and puts the town of Cologna on lock down, with others in the Lombardy region of northern Italy (a manufacturing hub) on unofficial lockdown. The cause for ala... ››› more

  • You need to make sure you're using the right investment method when picking stocks

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.

  • How to expand your investment universe and tap into the online gaming mega-trend

  • The tide is turning on this small-cap education stock
  • The most lucrative opportunities are found in times of maximum pessimism. Investors just need to filter through the noise for the right shares to invest in, that have potential tail winds in the months and years ahead. Small caps have lost favour with investors.

  • Bargain hunting in “bear” territory
  • Following on from last week's article where I quoted Sir John Templeton as saying “tell me where there is the most pessimism and I will tell you where to invest”. That describes global equity markets now and more accurately the South African market. Most investors are bearish and pessimism is high. But that doesn't mean you should be buying every stock making 52-week lows or in bargain territo... ››› more

  • 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
