  • 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.

  • 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
