Is South Africa worth the risk?

From 1900 to 2018, the JSE was the best-performing stock market in the world. Fear, uncertainty and a difficult political history have always been with us and fortune seems to favour the brave.

Opportunity knocks

Portfolio managers share the investment ideas they think are worth getting excited about.

  1. Show me the value
    Value stocks are at historic lows compared to growth stocks. Nicholas Kirrage believes that this is not sustainable and looks at where the biggest gains will be made when things normalise.
  2. Should you bet the farm on this?

    Kundayi Munzara


  3. Party like it’s 2002
    Some exceptional South African companies have become cheap as declining profits and poor sentiment combine to provide what may be a buying opportunity similar to that offered in 2002.
