Welcome to September’s issue of MarketViews.
We have three quite different articles in this Spring edition to help you think through current issues whether you are a beginner, intermediate or experienced investor.
AJ Cilliers examines the state of global markets today and summarises what analysts expect for the foreseeable future. If recession does hit (and this is likely), Cilliers suggests that investors turn their focus to income from dividends rather than capital gains. He then provides four guidelines to selecting dividend-paying shares to your portfolio.
If you’re fairly new to investing, or are keen for a quick refresher course, you might appreciate Nicole Cameron’s article demystifying common jargon. If there’s another term or phrase you’d like MarketViews to explain, please add it to the comment box below the article, and we will do our best to translate it into plain English!
For those interested in technical analysis, Dwaine van Vuuren of PowerStocks explains why the SA Top40 has gained 8% from historically low valuations and has the potential for further gains. He also explores the rather strange situation where the rising JSE is accompanied by a struggling or shrinking economy, and what the impact of another wave of quantitative easing could be on the local bourse.
Wishing you a successful month’s investing,
