We all want to buy low, sell high. Or buy a property at the lowest price possible, and get the best possible rental income from it, right?
So, is there a best time to invest in property? Is there anything to look out for when making your investment?
The reality is, great investors learn to make the best of every market cycle. The key is to have strategies that fit the different market cycles.

Last week the Federal Reserve pushed US interest rates up by 0.75%. This was an attempt to fight inflation which has risen to multi-decade highs.
By raising interest rates, the Fed hopes to slow economic growth and stifle employment. This will reduce the demand for goods and services within the economy and (hopefully) get inflation under control.
It's important to understand reducing growth,... ››› more
A year ago, banks were saying they don't want to finance coal mine development any longer.
European countries were closing down coal power plants.
It looked like there was little interest in the commodity going forward.
But now the price of coal is booming.
In October last year a ton of export coal sold for around $90.
Today it sells between $300 and $400!
That's a big change…

Last week, I mentioned Elon Musk's controversial claim that a falling population would result in a serious threat to humanity. I also briefly touched on my own controversial call on Tesla (TLSA). After the feedback from readers, I've decided to expand on Tesla and my current view on the beaten down tech stocks.
Firstly, it's important to know there has been a lot of buzz around Artificial Intel... ››› more
Even though I started my investment ‘career' during my university years, I still wish I had done so earlier.
Even a year or two, well timed, can make a world's difference. There was so much money I wasted on games, gadgets and expensive clothes…
Possibly the most important investment idea not to miss out on…
Investment Idea #1 - The earlier you start - the more you will end up with

Hi, I'm Francois Joubert, Chief Investment Strategist for Red Hot Penny Shares
And today I'm going to show you how a modest investment in a single R2 stock could become the cornerstone of your million rand portfolio.
I call it my “One in a Million Stock Play.”
You might find the idea that one or two stocks could turn a portfolio into more than a million unbelievable, yet many investor... ››› more
In April 2021, I shared a company that I believe SA investors should own.
Capital Appreciation (JSE: CTA).
You see, CTA is what I called a “Below-the-Radar” stock.
These types of companies usually small, and largely ignored by the big money investors.
Yet they demonstrate huge growth potential, generate consistent profits and in many cases, pay attractive income.

If my research is correct, It has the potential to generate as much as 741% in as little as 4 years!
The best part I expect at least 150% in just the next 18 months…
And this stock is selling for less than R2 today!
Imagine…. Buying one R2 stock and seeing it turn R10,000 into R74,100, R20,000 into R148,200 or even R100,000 into R741,000!
Hard to believe right!
But even if this ... ››› more
“The South African economy is BOOMING.”
“The South African economy is BLEEDING.”
Both these statements are true at the same time.
South Africa's economy is back at the size it was before the coronavirus pandemic struck, after growing faster-than-expected in the first quarter.
Gross domestic product expanded 1.9% in the three months through March, compared with revised growth of... ››› more
Elon Musk recently courted controversy by claiming a population collapse, not overpopulation, is a significant global threat. You might think that sounds strange. The world population is at the highest it has ever been and is still rising. A higher population also means more competition for finite resources.
Given these facts, why would you worry about a population crash? If anything, you shoul... ››› more
South Africa is making some progress toward adding new generation to its underpowered electricity grid.
The government recently signed a power purchase agreement with Scatec SA for 150 megawatts of capacity from private projects.
Scatec is an Oslo-based company that constructs solar and battery storage technology. Ultimately, this deal (and future renewable energy projects) will do a lot to ... ››› more
The bulk of the market is presenting a pretty picture right now.
As I've told investors over the past year - higher oil and rising interest rates would take their toll on the bull market. And it has.
The last time economists were this worried about the economy was during the 2008 financial crisis.
April inflation in the US was a whopping 8.3%, whilst in South Africa it was 5.9%. However, ... ››› more
As a novice trader, it's easy to try and guess where the market's bottom is.
It's easy to see a bounce in a falling market, and assume that things are going up from here.
But calling a bottom is one of the most dangerous things a trader can do. In fact, with trading we say you're trying to ‘catch a falling knife'.
Most traders pile up their positions with a whole bunch of longs (buys) a... ››› more
There's nothing like inflation and rising interest rates to make institutional investors flipflop out of growth and into value!
Just take a recent comment made to Kiplinger by JP Morgan's David Kelly,

“This is a personal invitation, from me to you, to give Red Hot Penny Shares a try for a whole year with no pressure or obligation whatsoever.”
Since I started with Penny Shares in 2011, we've had 191 share tips closed - with 130 winners.
That's a win rate of 68%. So just more than two out of three shares are winners.
On average out of the 191 shares - the gain is 30%. The average win... ››› more
Editors Note: There is a certain group of overlooked stocks that thrive off extreme market conditions like the ones we're experiencing. Make no mistake - the crash in growth and tech stocks is no passing blip. A new decade of Value has already begun and the window of opportunity to capture returns of 200%, 300%... possibly more…. is closing fast. It's a once in a generation opportunity that cou... ››› more
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
If you've heard of ‘value investing', you may automatically think of Warren Buffett or Benjamin Graham, the man who coined the term - Value Investing - and, arguably the world's greatest value investor.
However, there's another person who revolutionised value investing, back in April 2000.
And he doesn't even invest!
He's a little-known accounting professor, who wrote a 57-page research... ››› more
For years, many in the West have admired the ability of the Chinese Government to push through policies that would never fly in a democratic country. This has allowed them to build structures like the Three Gorges Dam.
This hydroelectric project is the world's largest power station and provides about 10% of the country's electricity. But it also required the relocation of over 1 million people.... ››› more
Uber is one of the most amazing success stories in recent history.
As I write this the company is worth $88 billion today. But it doesn't own any vehicles. And it doesn't pay salaries to employees.
In fact - the company is estimated to have between 3 and 4 million drivers around the world.
Yet the company doesn't have a fraction of the overheads a business with 3 million employees would h... ››› more
