    The Banking fees for 2019

    2019 banking fees Fees at Standard Bank, Absa, and Nedbank have all been hiked this week. FNB updates its fees in June, while Capitec’s fees will be updated in February 2019. Old Mutual’s Money Account fees are effective from October 2018, while Bidvest Bank’s new Grow account launched in December. The tables below show how fees for South Africa’s five major retail banks have changed, year-on-year, taking into account the April 2018 change in VAT to 15%. The accounts used are the respective banks’ mid-market accounts, where applicable. The calculations are based on an R500 transaction, which the banks have said is the most common range for cash-based transactions in the country. One of the big changes between 2018 and 2019’s fee schedules is the restructuring or ’rounding’ of fees that were raised to be in line with the new VAT rate. In some cases, this has led to a slight decrease in prices, which appear to be have been absorbed by hikes elsewhere. Nedbank’s fee structures for 2019 have changed significantly, bringing it more in line with competitors, and seeing a significant reduction in some fees. Bidvest Bank’s Grow Account is a new account that will ultimately replace the current transactional account, so its fees are compared to the standing fees for the latter account. Other new entrants that qualify as traditional retail accounts (such as African Bank’s myWORLD) will be included upon launch. Digital-only banks (Discovery Bank, TymeBank, BankZero and FNB eWallet eXtra) will have a separate feature when the banks have launched. You can review Capitec’s full 2018/19 pricing here.

    Well, this was quite an extraordinary read? So it seems their board needs to be replaced. https://www.moneyweb.co.za/news/companies-and-deals/grand-parades-truly-extraordinary-general-meeting/ Do we have anyone that is invested in them, do you guys think they will be able to turn the ship around with a new board? Somehow R2.40 feels cheap for a stake in Burger King, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Baskin-Robbins?

    I did my best to work through their results and I do not understand why their share price is down? They have virtually no debt and they sit on more than a billion rand in cash. long4lifesens23102018.pdf

    I just saw this on sharenet. GABORONE (Reuters) - Botswana's stock exchange has suspended trading in the shares of food retailer Choppies Enterprises because the company missed a deadline to publish its financial results, the bourse operator said on Thursday. Choppies operates in eight African countries and has a secondary listing in Johannesburg, where its shares were also suspended. It failed to release its annual results within three months of its financial year-end, breaking the stock exchange's rules. "The trading of the Choppies securities will remain suspended until the company complies with the Stock Exchange listings rules or until further notice," the Botswana Stock Exchange Limited (BSEL) said in a statement. Choppies has 1.3 billion shares listed in Botswana and on the Johannesburg stock exchange. In September, Choppies said the delay in publishing its results was due to its new auditors' reassessment of the company's balance sheet. New external auditors appointed in January 2018 are reassessing the company's past accounting practices and policies including valuation of inventory, impairments on property, plant equipment and the value of acquisitions by its South African subsidiary. In a separate statement on Thursday, Choppies said it was still not able to determine when it would be in position to issue financial statements for the year ended June. Shares in Choppies have dropped more than 70 percent so far this year compared with a 10 percent decline for the Botswana stock exchange. Choppies runs around 200 stores mainly at home and in north-western parts of South Africa. It has a market value of around 50 million rand ($3.44 million).
