  1. ETNs: FirstRand have listed 9 Exchange Traded Notes on large US stocks on the JSE (plus one on MSCI World) Google (Alphabet) Amazon Apple Coke Facebook McDonalds Microsoft Netflix Tesla Each stock has 2 codes: With exposure to the USD/ZAR (C) or without (Q). Note that with an ETN you carry the counter-party risk that the issuer will not fulfill its obligations. With FSR/RMB you should be pretty safe, although their market making is less than desirable. Dividends are not paid out but are reinvested and added to the NAV of the ETN. Source:

  4. What a load of hogwash "people in cars don’t pay their fair share in terms of the taxes that they pay "
  5. Are the deals MTN are going to have on Black Friday in-store only or online as well? I don't want to stand in a queue if I can click buy on the website for the same deal.
  6. Boom! Don't care what the bloggers say, nothing beats owning property. Welcome to the club.

  8. The Minister of Public Enterprises, Mr Pravin Gordhan, and the Chairman of the Eskom Board, Mr Jabu Mabuza, address the media on Eskom and the current electricity supply problems. Watch live:
  9. I have been seeing some news about them lately, do any of you have stocks in Trustco? Is this a company worth looking into, I am struggling to find info on whether they are good or bad the articles seems to be a mix bag of opinions.
  10. I assume generators accross the country will require a lot of Diesel. Is it possible that we will have a Diesel shortage?
  11. Bank or Pick n Pay I don't know where to get discounted airtime, I think the retailers are all full price.
  12. MTN is up 12% at the moment.
  13. I bought some BLU today, I glanced over their financials (I do not understand anything), but what seems to be the case is that they have cash and generate it quickly and I like a business with cash. Then my main motivation is Cell C, I think with the right strategy they can easily compete with other networks especially given their MVNO structure.
  14. Do we know when they are launching? I am really interested to see what they can offer to match or beat Tyme.
  15. I assume Naspers' shares will go down now as Multichoice moves off its books or does that not effect share price?
  16. 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. You can find FNB’s 2018/19 pricing guide here. Absa’s full 2019 pricing can be found here. Nedbank’s Savvy Plus 2019 pricing can be found here.
