  • What a third interest cut means for US stocks!
  • Last week, the US Federal Reserve finally cut interest rates again. The rationale behind this move is to help sustain US growth. Now the quarter-point cut marks the third rate cut this year. And this can be good news for stock investors. In fact, following the latest announcement, US stock markets hit new highs. But even better…. If history is anything to go by, we could see US stock... ››› more

  • Small Cap, Mid Cap and Large Cap stocks - what's the difference?
  • So you've heard the terms bandied about. Small Cap, Mid Cap and Big Cap stocks. What does this mean - and how do stocks get labelled as either a small or mid cap for instance? It is important to know the differences between these different categories of shares - as it will affect your investment strategy… ________________________________________   ‘The Great JSE Takeove... ››› 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. Companies that have been grabbed up by astute investors, companies and funds that know the profits they make are worth a lot more than t... ››› more

  • Goodbye China and hello 30,940 for the Dow Jones!
  • Trump may have imposed 100s of billions of dollars on tariffs in the US China trade war and it seems he isn't about to stop there… In fact, the trade war could escalate to a new level of madness where we see the US delist a number of Chinese companies from the US stock exchanges. Just to put it into perspective, in February, as per government data, there were 156 companies that traded on... ››› 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

  • 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

  • Drink up stoners and investors because this $146 billion industry is about to explode
  • To think that just five years ago, if you mentioned anything about cannabis, marijuana or weed, it was a major taboo and they might have thought you were a druggie or a drug dealer. Fast forward to today and already it's become not only a legal industry, as of the end of 2018, but also, it's become a multi-billion dollar industry world-wide. In fact, there are major developments for cannab... ››› more

  • 3 Small-Cap Stocks with BIG potential
  • Landing winning stocks doesn't have to mean investing in small, high-risk operations. Even big companies offer the potential of rich returns over time. But some small businesses will turn into tomorrow's biggest winners and create massive wealth for investors that got in at the right time. Small-cap stocks, or the penny shares we invest in, are generally companies with market caps of less than... ››› more

  • What share buybacks and director dealings mean for these penny stocks

  • 3 Penny Stock predictions in this week's Q&A
  • Q. “I've recently bought Advanced Health shares. On Friday, the share price suddenly moved from around 90 cents down to 85 cents. Was there a news event announced or what happened? Where do you think the share price will move to next?”   A. Unfortunately, there has not been one SENS news announcement since December 2018. The news announcement only mentioned about the upcoming AGMs an... ››› more

  • When investors lose patience at precisely the wrong time
  • Most investors are losing patience with the JSE as returns have been non-existent. The JSE All-Share index is back in it's previous trading range - which is pretty much 2014 levels. The problem with investors losing patience and selling, is they do it at precisely the wrong time. The Magellan fund managed by Peter Lynch achieved a remarkable 29% annualised return between 1977 to 1990 b... ››› more

  • What 2018's double digit gainers have in common
  • 2018's been a tough year on the stock market. Based on the data I've filtered through there hasn't been a share that's returned more than 100% for the year to date! In fact, there have only been six shares to return more than 50% for the year so far! In total, there are 53 shares with 10%+ gains for 2018 to date… So, what do these companies have in common, and why are they up while ther... ››› 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

  • The five biggest lies you've been told about penny stock investing
  • When you've been around the penny stock investing industry as long as I have, you get tired hearing the same old lies about penny stocks over and over. While these stories don't affect me at all, I am tired of how they discourage investors that are eager to start, and to learn more about the opportunities out there. So, give me a moment of your time today to tell you about the lies, and myth... ››› more

  • It's time to be greedy... Buy these 5 shares today!
  • Volatility provides buying opportunities, as investors panic sell and then buy after the shares inch higher. Investors were complacent leading up to last week due to low amounts of volatility experienced in the past two months. The sell-off caught almost everyone by surprise. But this is a normal function of the market. Over the past 90 years, the S&P 500 has had a 5% decline around every 2... ››› more

  • Two things to look for when investing in dividend stocks
  • 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 81.84cps in dividends - a return of 186% from dividends alone. Based on the latest dividend of 17.1cps, you'd make 38.8% on your original investment THIS YEAR ALONE.   ... ››› more

  • How you can make massive returns off other people's money
  • I have a number of interests in private businesses. One startup that I invested money in is about to pay off in a big way. Suddenly I'm getting calls from investors wanting in on the opportunity…. But mere months ago - when the startup was burning through capital in order to get its products market ready investors didn't even want to give it a second glance. They were saying that there'... ››› more

  • A TRIPLE whammy of catalysts will send this penny share higher in 2018
  • I always look for a catalyst that'll send the price of a penny stock flying. Being a good business isn't enough if there isn't something big that'll attract the attention of investors to the stock. But even better, every once in a while I find a stock that doesn't just have one catalyst but THREE catalysts that are behind it, which will push the share price up. And today I'd like to share wi... ››› more

  • The best investing strategy to weather volatility
  • The rand lost 4% of its value in mere days last week. At the same time, between 13 and 15 August the JSE lost 4% of its value. As uncertainty at home and abroad causes this kind of volatility, there's a simple kind of investment that warrants a place in portfolios. I'm talking about dividend paying stocks. The appeal is simple, dividend payers can provide investors with tangible returns (... ››› more
