Mark Twain wasn't wrong when he said:
“History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”
The more things change, the more they stay the same - this is true when it comes to the fear, greed and herd mentality in the markets... If you've been investing long enough you will see the same patterns on repeat.
Just think back to the 2007/2008 financial crisis…

2020 has barely begun yet we're already set to be flooded by hundreds of companies set to report financial results between February and March.
Results releases are even more important for small-cap and penny stocks.
That's because these companies don't have as much interest from institutional analysts - so results announcements are the main way for news about these companies' potential to ... ››› more
So, you want to invest in JSE-listed penny stocks….
But you don't know where to start?
There are hundreds of stocks out there, and so little freely available information.
Today I'm going to run you through four crucial questions you should ask yourself before making any penny stock investment.

JSE listed stocks are selling at their cheapest levels in a decade.
And that's created an opportunity for internationally listed, and private equity companies to make a mint.
You see, these companies borrow money internationally at 3%, 4% or 5% interest. They then buy these South African companies that are selling cheaply and the dividends they receive from them are enough to repay their b... ››› more

Q. “Hi Timon, I read the weekly article where you expect the JSE ALSI40 to rally.
My question is, if Moody's does eventually decide to downgrade South Africa to junk what would happen and when is the next grading?”

We all know how ‘Black Friday' sees the most incredible deals in shops every year…
These deals are typically 30%, 40% and 50% discount on everything you buy.
In the same way I foresee great ‘Black Friday' specials on the JSE this year.
What am I talking about?
Well, since 2018 there have been around 35 companies delisted from the JSE. Around 10% of all the small cap shares on... ››› more

There is a continuous debate that goes around both local and global markets during the ninth month.
It's called the ‘September Effect'.
This is a well-known theory where stock prices perform worse, on average, compared to how they perform during the rest of the year.
However! No one has come up with a plausible reason for why that is.
Today, I'll go through the facts and stats to... ››› more
Sometimes the stock market behaves inexplicably.
Quality companies trade at unbelievable discounts. Or they sell at prices so high that you might flinch.
What makes this difficult to muster is the fact that these ‘discrepancies' tend to keep going on for much longer than you'd think possible.
One such share was Curro Holdings.
The company listed in July 2011 and investors could p... ››› more
Q. “I received a trade signal last week to buy Reinet… I am a new member with Red Hot Storm Trader and wanted to know what the big difference is between buying 200 Reinet CFDs versus buying 200 Reinet shares and what instrument I should buy with Red Hot Storm Trader?”

Landing winning stocks doesn't have to mean investing in small, high-risk operations. Even big companies offer the potential of rich returns over time. But some small businesses will turn into tomorrow's biggest winners and create massive wealth for investors that got in at the right time.
Small-cap stocks, or the penny shares we invest in, are generally companies with market caps of less than... ››› more
There are 275 dividend paying shares in the JSE today. They average a dividend pay-out of 3.88%.
While a 3.88% dividend is surely better than nothing - this doesn't even cover the interest you'd have received on your cash with a fixed deposit.
And, once that money is paid out by a company the money is lost to it forever.
But what if I told you there's a better option - a company that d... ››› more

What a month it's been, especially last week!
We saw giant companies like Tongaat, Lonmin and Basil Read suspend their shares.

In this article we'll briefly catch you up on what happened in June with the m... ››› more

Before Donald Trump escalated trade wars, which sent shockwaves through the markets, stocks were performing well overall.
The major US indices like the Nasdaq and S&P500 were flying.
Even the JSE All Share was showing good returns. From its lowest level to its highest, the JSE was up around 14%. A great comeback from 2018's negative return.
