Small Cap Shares

  • Three JSE small caps that could become acquisition targets before the year is out
  • Small companies on the JSE have become popular takeover targets. In 2021, 25 companies were delisted from the JSE, many of these were companies being bought out by management teams or acquiring companies from abroad. Think of companies like Value Group, Adapt IT, Anchor Group and Spanjaard. These companies are delisting because their share prices have remained too cheap - and that's creat... ››› more

  • When fear grows - these stocks soar
  • The rand is at R15.37 to the dollar - the weakest we've seen since the Zuma era. We can blame this on NHI, EWC or a string of other three lettered government policies that aren't business friendly. But at the end of the day the whole world is running scared right now. Thanks to the US trade war, negative bond yields in many European countries and increasing world debt. In fact, for t... ››› more

  • Why I'm bullish on buying small cap stocks right now
  • No question about it… There is a mountain of reasons to be worried about the South African stock market. Since March 2017, the JSE Small Cap index is down 19.62%. At the same time, the mainstream media is bombarding investors with “Take all your money offshore now” messages. But there are groups of investors that are bullish as can be. And they're buying small cap stocks like the... ››› more

  • A dangerous trend to watch out for on the JSE - and Warren Buffett's advice
  • In the past month or two, I've realized a worrying trend on the JSE. This trend has been behind Sibanye Gold's 58% drop in the past year. It's also been behind Woolies losing 25% of its value since 2016, and Brait dropping 41%. What is this trend? Well, it's “making offshore acquisitions at ALL costs”… And Warren Buffett has just warned investors against the trend. Let me... ››› more

  • The Double-Your-Money stock plays your advisors will never tell you about…
  • The mainstream media will only tell you about the biggest of the big shares. You'll often hear about Naspers, Richemont and BHP Billiton. And fund managers will make these big shares the centre points of their investment funds. That is - the Balanced Fund your advisor will suggest you invest in for retirement so you don't need to take much risk. But that means you can expect 9%, 10% and if... ››› more

  • Thanks to the weak rand these commodity shares are set to rocket
  • The rand started out 2017 at 13.78, and quickly strengthened to R12.42 in mid-March. This would've negated strengthening commodity prices world-wide. The price of copper, ferrochrome, gold and aluminium all rose during 2017. But - fortunately for South African producers of these commodities the rand weakened yet again, now trading in the R14 range. And that means all of these commo... ››› more

Recommending these large companies is th... ››› 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.

  • Why there's never been a better time to buy small cap shares
  • Over the past three years the JSE has gone nowhere! On 4 July, 2014 the JSE All-Share Index stood at 52,060 points. By the end of 3 July 2016 the same index stood at 52,164. And yet it's PE is near an all time high of 19.94. This makes the index ridiculously ‘expensive' and the average investor extremely despondent, crying where's the value. But I'm hear to tell you, there's ... ››› more
