  • 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

  • How minimum investing IS NOT the same as low cost investing
  • Do you know the difference between minimum investing and low-cost investing? Well, most investors would usually say they're the same thing. But this is far from the truth. Low-cost investing deals with the investments associated with investing your money, while minimum investing implies the least amount of money you can invest. In fact, failure to understand this can actually lead to... ››› more

  • Read this before you rush out and buy an Uber car
  • Uber is no doubt one of the most convenient and cost effective transport solutions in the country right now.

  • Investing for attractive returns could be an investor's worst mistake…
  • Recently I came across an article on MoneyWeb with the headline, “Preference share offering 14.5%”. Preference shares returning 14.5%? I've only really seen a preference share offer investors around 10% and that's Grindrod, which is a solid proven company. So I was sceptical when I read this headline and I immediately investigated how this investment was offering such a good yield. ... ››› more

  • Why you shouldn't believe that investing in high-risk stocks will make you more money
  • There's a common belief in investing that the higher the risks you take on, the greater the potential reward may be. Long-term performance of stocks and bonds provides evidence to back this up. Historically, stocks have outperformed bonds. This implies greater reward for investors taking on the higher risks of investing in stocks over bonds. But it may not be as clear cut as this.

  • Get ahead on the stock market by paying attention to ‘mean reversion'
  • If a company posts a bumper profit, it's easy to get over excited about the future prospects of the business and what its share price may do. It pays to err on the side of caution when investing. You don't want to risk investing in a company that's done well this year, but fails to meet expectations next year. Its share price will pay the price. So what's the best way to handle this?
