  • Why you need to be wary of this accounting trick before you invest in stocks
  • Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic there was a ‘nerdy' accounting joke doing the rounds saying that soon we'd see EBITDAC - Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortisation and corona. While there's no ‘official' accounting term like that - companies results do show the effects, the pandemic has had on them. And many are opting to call it ‘once-off expenses. Suddenly the ner... ››› more

  • A BOOMING sector to bet on for the rest of 2020 and beyond!
  • Almost everything sold off big earlier this year. But after that, one US sector was the first to hit new highs again. And it did so in April. Since then, this sector's uptrend has been accelerating. In fact, stocks in this sector continue to shatter old "new high" records almost daily. They've been on an impressive rally - up more than 45% since bottoming in March. Despite this… ... ››› more

  • Gary Booysen: When should you sell stocks?
  • 2020 has been one hell of a year. Coronavirus has ravaged most markets and yet certain stock markets have hit record highs. Unbelievable! Whatever the reason for the run up, the obvious divergence of share prices from the underlying reality seems to be all too apparent to professional investors. So, is it time for you to hit the big red button? Is now the time to sell everything? ... ››› more

  • 3 Stocks to Buy in value territory
  • The global stock market indices continue to rally, with a handful of companies contributing to the positive performance since the march lows. And while the anecdote says, “a rising tide lifts all boats”, this isn't the case. Many sectors in the market are just bobbing up and down and not moving decidedly higher. These overlooked companies offer value, still 20% or more below their pre Covi... ››› more

  • If I only held one stock, it would be this
  • Everyone has favourites. A favourite food. A favourite colour. A favourite vacation spot. And, even though you'll never admit it, some people even have a favourite child. For me, this pertains to the world of stocks too. So, what is that one stock? The one I just have to hold no matter what anyone says? Well, it's a company that, for the longest time, operated in the shadows of its mai... ››› more

  • This 2007 report predicted what the Covid-19 crisis would do to our economy
  • While there have been epidemics in our lifetime, none have had the level of response from government's that we're now seeing. And while it's now become clear that we'll have to deal with lockdown measures for longer than many initially thought - we're also far enough through this crisis to start looking ahead. How will our economy recover, will it be quick or slow? Will we see inflatio... ››› more

  • 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 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

  • Black Friday is almost upon us. And many shoppers are already hunting for potential “Black Friday” bargains. But I have another idea for you… As ordinary South Africans head to the stores, set on spending more, owning more and having more, why don't you park the trolley and, instead take this opportunity to treat your future-self. Now I'm totally for saving money. And, I ... ››› 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

  • 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
