  • The most important thing to look for when investing for dividends
  • When you invest in shares there are two things that can make you money - capital appreciation as the share price rises. And dividends putting hard cash in your pocket. Most investors focus mostly on capital appreciation. But the fact is dividends can make you massive returns. If for instance you bought Adapt IT in 2009, you'd have paid 44c per share. Since then the company has paid out... ››› more

  • Three ways to identify the ‘Double Your Money' shares from value traps
  • What if I told you there's a way to find shares that consistently outperform the market? Sounds too good to be true. But the fact is, fourteen shares I invested in between 2010 and 2016 provided me with returns outstripping 100% each…. In their 2013 paper titled “Fundamental Based Market Strategies”, Dr Angelo Aspris (research leader), Sean Foley, (researcher), Nigel Finch, and Z... ››› more

  • I believe this is the only way to make big money from the stock market
  • March 2009 - that was the first time I ever bought a share… It was Old Mutual. And while Old Mutual was a massive company, the 2008 financial crisis decimated it, and the share became a ‘penny stock'. I bought my first shares in the company for 603c, with the money I made from vacation work as a student at the mine I had a bursary with. I bought 990 shares with around R6,000. By No... ››› more

  • Two to Buy and none to sell this week!
  • PSG has pulled back to a good buying level around the R235 mark. We've been trading the R230/R270 range this year very well. When you buy PSG you get exposure to a number of companies, like Capitec, now one of South Africa's “big 5” and growing by over 100,000 clients per month. Through PSG, you also gain exposure to Curro and Studio, which has been unbundled from Curro and starts tradin... ››› more

  • One way to find growth in shares when the market's going nowhere
  • In the past six months, a little known JSE listed company, Insimbi, is up nearly 50%. And on 26 September 2017, it announced its revenue increased 247%, and earnings per share increased 142%. Growing profits by as much as 142% in an economy that's in recession is nearly impossible. But Insimbi achieved this - how you ask? Well, the company made a smart acquisition at the end of... ››› more

  • There's no trading statement from Rolfes yet, what does this mean?
  • Throughout 2016 and early 2017 Rolfes had a great run, up from R2.76 to a high of R5. But the share has suddenly dropped in the past two weeks. A number of investors and analysts attribute this to the fact that the company hasn't released a trading statement. So what does a trading statement have to do with share price?   The JSE requires companies to release trading statemen... ››› more

  • The JSE is overvalued, should I sell?
  • The JSE All-Share Index is just 10% off from its all-time high. It's sitting around the highest PE level of all time for the index, at 23.24. At the same time, US markets are at all-time highs, and interest rates are threatening to go up. With this in mind, I was recently asked by an investor, whether the JSE is overvalued and set for a massive correction. So, should you hold on or sel... ››› more

  • The Year that was - The biggest winner of 2016 was the Rand!
  • 2016 has been a year many will quickly forget, but for the shock results of the Brexit vote and the US elections; it was a year where many cans were kicked down the road. Global growth remained benign and potential silver-linings have yet to gain material traction because of lingering uncertainties such as the future US foreign policy, the tensions in South East Asia, lingering debt problems i... ››› more

  • The one industry I'm most excited about for 2017…
  • As I predicted last year, 2016 was a year of consolidation. Our market went nowhere. But shares are much cheaper today than they were a year ago. And that makes me optimistic about 2017. But there's one industry in particular that I've got my eyes on. It was arguably the worst sector for 2016. Agriculture. One of the worst droughts in decades hit South Africa. Farmers lost crop... ››› more

  • The most important investment decision you can make, in two minutes
  • Please don't let your portfolio fall because of this single mistake… In 2014, I got a mail from an investor: “Francois, I'm not investing in a single investment recommendation of yours again. I've bought Mr Price shares with my whole portfolio. And at the rate it's going now, I'll retire in a few short years. I bought Mr Price at R136 in February, and now that it's August, the sha... ››› more

  • The one income investment that pays you FOUR times more than the JSE
  • These days, investing for attractive income returns is extremely hard to come by. Money market funds at most pay you 7.3%. The average share on the JSE is only paying investors around 2.9% in dividends per year. And once you factor in inflation, you're basically getting nothing! But there is a way, you can invest for income and receive a return… That beats every money market ... ››› more

  • You have to “Go Small” to add big returns to your portfolio
  • As an advisor to the South African Investor board I deal with investors that are looking for long term returns that'll help them live, and retire securely. That means we typically look at companies like Vodacom, Naspers, Bidvest and the like. Large blue-chip shares that have been around for years, and will continue to be there for years to come. Recommending these large companies is th... ››› more

  • Why I'm calling a buy on the JSE, even though many call it expensive
  • “The JSE is too expensive, rather buy these offshore stocks”, if read this headline, and variations of it many times in the past year. Yet, my Red Hot Penny Shares readers would've banked an average gain on shares we sold of 22.21% in 2016. Whilst there are still calls to drop the JSE and put your money elsewhere I am optimistic. I believe 2017 can be just as good, or better, than ... ››› more

  • Four “must knows” before you invest in a single share
  • The biggest lie you'll ever hear in the stock market is that: “As a private investor you're not smart enough, and you lack the information to invest and make money on the stock market.” It's a lie presented by fund managers, personal financial advisers and media analysts alike. Obviously, they don't say it quite like this, but it's what they mean. The essence behind their big lie i... ››› more

Their confidence masks the growing dissension from all sides, including members of its own party, eventually pressure will come to bear. Fitch followed S&P in downgrading SA, but again the reaction was relatively muted. Clearly the market had been preparing for this eventuality. Of more concern is that som... ››› more

  • This company is slowly burning, make sure you don't own it…
  • More bad news for the Lonmin share price In 2012 Lonmin asked shareholders for R7.12 billion in capital to keep the doors open. At that stage the company was worth R8 billion. But investing in Lonmin was a bad idea. By 2015 the company burnt through all of that money. Its value crashed, with the company being worth a mere R1.2 billion in November 2015. And then, as the creditors came knock... ››› more
