MarketViews - October 2016 Edition
Welcome to the October edition of MarketViews.
The saga of Deutsche Bank AG has been in the news a lot lately, and uncertainty surrounding the fate of the world’s second largest investment bank has created a good measure of volatility in financial markets. If you’ve missed out on the news so far, we’ve put together a comprehensive summary of the DB situation, including a sketch of the bank’s surprisingly shady history.
In previous articles, Dwaine van Vuuren has written about the JSE being at nosebleed P/E’s and propped up by a few large cap rand-hedges. In this article Dwaine discusses what you can do if you’re still keen to buy shares at reasonable earnings yields. By looking at mid-cap shares below a P/E ratio of 16, you may find what you’re looking for, since the smaller cap indices perform better than the larger cap TOP40 and with lower volatility. Read his article for more details and video tutorials.
In his article this month, AJ Cilliers looks at why so many of us fail to reach our potential, and what we can do to change this. By arming us with the strategy of the ’Miracle Morning’, based on the book of a similar title by Hal Elrod, we can learn what people do to best position themselves for life - and investing - success.
Wishing you good reading and a prosperous month’s investing,
