Structured Product

  • My Structured Product Pick for June 2020
  • It's very hard to make sense of markets right now. On the one hand, it's crystal clear the economy is in a mess. Unemployment is even higher than the worst of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The damage done by lockdowns cannot be easily undone. On the other hand, governments have pumped unprecedented amounts of money into the system and the market seems to be on an unstoppable rise.

  • The Rand has recovered over 12%, now is the time to invest offshore
  • Many investors rush for the exit at the same time, causing a whip-saw effect in asset prices. The Rand is particularly vulnerable to this as one of the major currencies. Emerging market (EM) investors can use it as a proxy for less liquid EM currencies, and use it to hedge as it has the benefit of straddling trading hours in parts of Asia and America. There are two ways for you to get ... ››› more

  • How to invest to protect your portfolio in 2020 and beyond
  • Central banks have vowed to do what ever it takes to ignite economic growth. Growth is the only thing that will address the Covid-19 unemployment crisis facing the world. That means there will be a lot of cheap and seemingly “free” money thrown at this problem. We have several central bankers talking this week and our own monetary policy committee is due to make an interest rate an... ››› more

  • Vaccinate your portfolio from COVID-19 with these 4 shares
  • Last week was a scary time for most investors as global markets racked up new records for the fastest 10% pullback in history. The worst weekly decline for the American indices since the 2008 financial crisis. And, the biggest single day decline for most markets as the bottom fell out of the market. These concerns are over the impact to global growth from the shut down and restrictions in Chi... ››› more

  • My structured product pick for February
  • Many analysts have predicted 2020 will be a choppy year for investors, but NO ONE could have anticipated a threat like the Coronavirus. And, although many of you have likely heard of the disease, I believe most people are yet to understand its implications. According to most estimates, this appears to be a very infectious sickness (twice as high as a normal flu) with a moderate death rate (l... ››› more

  • One stock to buy that could net you more than 40% gain in 10 months!
  • As predicted, Telkom's (TKG) share price has fallen since I tipped it as a sell above R94.00 eight months ago. It has plummeted 60% so you could have made some good money shorting this stock. Now I believe the tide is turning on Telkom as it bounces from R30. The slide is over, and patient investors could make money buying today. Here's why...   ___________________________________... ››› more

  • Viv Govender's January 2020 Structured product pick
  • 2020 is set to be a nervous year for South African investors. At home we have this triple whammy to look forward to… load shedding, a potential ratings downgrade and low growth. Internationally we got Brexit, the US election and the ongoing trade war. And maybe even an actual war! All this when many global indices are at record high and way overdue a reset. In such an environment... ››› more

  • Buy Naspers before the smart money piles in
  • Naspers result are due on Thursday and we should see buyers push the share price higher into year end. Yesterday's trading update provided some insight into what to expect as it highlighted core earnings from continuing operations will increase between 7% and 10%. Last week Tencent released results, and while it didn't excite traders and investors, it highlighted that a maturing business c... ››› more

  • Grow your portfolio with these JSE “Safe Haven” investment opportunities
  • Week after week, market commentators highlight how investors are not making positive returns in USD. The US dollar is king now, with it paying a positive yield and investors who have missed the gold rally are hording it. This has caused liquidity to be squeezed. It's increasingly likely that President Trump will use the 1934 Gold Reserve Act to sell US Dollars and buy foreign currency as a way... ››› more

  • Concerned about the yield curve? Find out what to do when recession hits…
  • Markets have been incredibly skittish over the last week. And, while there are many reasons for concern, one of the main issues driving share prices lower is fear over the “inverted yield curve”. If you skim the financial news, you'll see headlines like: “Yield curve inversion hammers US small banks” “Bond market yield curve inverts, signalling Fed may be too slow to cut... ››› more

  • Never let a good crisis go to waste
  • As Winston Churchill once said “Never let a good crisis go to waste”, we believe investors should be ensuring they have enough exposure to offshore assets that will be a hedge against a “deeper crisis” and should be slowly buying depressed local assets if they have cash on hand. Most investors have been sitting on the sidelines not fully exposed to equities You can't blame local invest... ››› more

  • The ZAR's Eskom induced downward spiral
  • I'm sure you have seen the headlines signaling the Rand is on a downward spiral. We highlighted the Rand being at risk of weakness when it was below R13.90 to the USD two weeks ago. It's lost almost 3% but recovering steadily. This bout of weakness is on the back of Eskom's new lifeline of R59 billion, over the next two years. After government committed R69 billion over three years earlier thi... ››› more

  • Why you should go long the USD/ZAR
  • The Rand has staged a stellar rally. Strengthening from above R15 against the USD to below R13.90. It came within half a cent of our R13.8550 target against the USD but the price is consolidating. It's time to bank our profits after a 6.24% gain, with gearing your gain could have been more than ten times larger. Trading the other way and going long the USD against the ZAR has good risk to rewa... ››› more

  • Bidcorp rally runs out of steam
  • Bidcorp's attempted breakout above the R320 per share resistance level failed, this is the third time since 2017 that Bidcorp's share price failed to move above R320. The share price has pulled back over 3% with further advances unlikely, investors should look to lock in profits as the share price is on a standard deviation of 2.4. This signals a pullback is likely, and a retracement has starte... ››› more

  • My favourite structured product so far in 2018
  • April is almost over, and I can't believe this is only my second structured product pick for 2018. Originally, I planned to introduce at least one structured product per month, but the financial markets have just not played ball. And, given the nature of these products, I would rather send you nothing than introduce you to a product that didn’t meet my stringent criteria.   You s... ››› more
