Small Cap Shares

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 5 Reasons why you need Small-Cap stocks in your portfolio!

  • The ‘special' segment of the JSE I'm rushing to invest in right now…
  • I get it… This has been a tough start to 2016. Between 28 December 2015 and 21 January 2016 the JSE handed you a ‘New Year's' gift of -11% and the market is still down year to date. And when you look at the largest companies on the JSE, the concerns don't magically disappear… Intu Properties reported a 10.6% decrease in earnings for the year, Liberty Holdings profit dropped about... ››› more

  • The ‘must know facts' about penny share investing
  • Over the last three decades, the small-cap sector (which houses ‘penny shares') outperformed nearly every other market by a landslide. In fact, if you had spread R10,000 across the entire small-cap universe in 1996, you would have turned it into R171,021.60 by 2015. And since 1929, the average annual return on small-cap stocks has been 11.9%, according to Morningstar Ibbotson data on inter... ››› more
