  • Have you spotted this recovery opportunity?
  • 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… I remember buying ... ››› more

  • Are you ready to cash in on the next growth revolution?
  • Electricity is fundamental to the way we live our lives. You simply can't live without it. Just consider the disastrous effect of load shedding this past week.

  • Are the JSE's small caps good buys - or not?
  • There are 322 shares on the JSE with market capitalisations of lower than R5 billion. These shares (bar a few ETFs and Preference shares) we can call ‘small caps'. These are the smaller shares on the JSE that don't fit into the Top 40, or the Mid Cap indices. We can further segment these shares - looking only at PENNY SHARES. These are small caps with share prices below R10. Of these sha... ››› more

  • What you need to know about stock buyouts
  • 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

  • The JSE is on sale - and these investors are pocketing big time
  • In 2019 alone there have been 19 shares delisted from the JSE. Not because they're bankrupt… Or have violated regulations Or just because it's too costly No… They are companies that were selling for WAY less than what they were worth.

  • When low cost passive investing becomes expensive
  • Many retail investors are bombarded with ways to invest through exchange traded funds (ETF), most of which passively track an index. The ETF platforms highlight how cheap they are, but in actual fact they aren't cheaper. If you have more than R80,000 in the account, its expensive. The ETF platforms charge between 0.35% and 0.65% ex VAT just for annual admin fees. That's on top of the other fees... ››› 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.
