    Your TFIA/TFSA

    Any promising ideas for that aggressive growth? Right now I have what I thought would be a high risk, but with high growth portfolio, but its not growing as I had hoped. Looking to change things up as I said in the other thread, looking for something to do with gold... Any ideas??? Currently: 1. Satrix FINI (15%) 2. Satrix INDI (20%) 3. Ashburton MidCap (10%) 4. DBX World (25%) 5. DivTrax (15%) 6. PTXTEN (15%) For aggressive growth I'd go with STXIND and DBXWD. I'd heavily go for STXIND because of Naspers (dangerous though). I combined those with some DIVTRX as well because even though it is geared for dividends there are some good stocks in there and it is growing pretty well atm.

DBX World (25%) 5. DivTrax (15%) 6. PTXTEN (15%) I am not a big fan of Dividend stocks since you need 100's of thousands of rands before it reaps any reward since dividend ETF's themselves barley grow they go horizontal at best. As for my current thought that I want to start at the end of this month is the following: JSE : MAPPSG (40%) JSE : DBXWD (15%) JSE : PTXTEN (15%) JSE : STXINDI (15%) Cash (15%) in the account accumulating for when the new EFTs gets released then I will buy some of them. Not a fan of dividends, buys property...
  3. BWHAHAHA! This is not going well for that psychologist.

  6. Currently 4.2% Pa If you used today's price you could buy roughly 710 shares. With last year's data you would've gotten about R770 for the year. Sent from my LG-V490 using Tapatalk
  7. a portfolio in otherworld's? BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. Sounds like you are looking for an ETF...
  9. No, not really, but figured what the heck, this is their "winning" strategy, so might as well try it. But now with everything being separate, I'll just sell whatever whenever as I'd much rather clean up my screen. And incur costs. See, this why that basket is such a kark idea unless you are prepared to manage it yourself. I don't see the point unless you can trim it down to whatever you want and get it for a better cost. Their "winning strategy" involves selling as well.
  10. Waiting for that as well. Wonder if it will be the Black Rock ones or if there are others coming.
  11. Did you even want all of the shares in the basket?!
  12. Would seem so. There is SBAOIL you can try.
  13. Indeed he doesn't. To be honest, if I prefer CTOP50 over it because I don't like one share getting such a high weighting (especially in an ETF designed to prevent it). At the moment though it is paying off but I'm watching it. MAPPSG though is still very good for somebody starting out and "scared". FNB's Share Saver is another option (where I started): Top40+MidCap

  15. It is good if you combine it with some DBXWD. But if you only ever invest in a single share on the JSE, MAPPSG (and later MAPPSP) is the way to go IMO. 75% of it is equities (NFSWIX, which I own). The only problem is that if you combine it with DBXWD your exposure to bonds etc become a lot less (20% of 50% of portfolio for example). You could always go do it yourself and get those bonds through separate ETFs (NFILBI and NFGOVI). More costs but greater control. This also allows you to swap out NFSWIX for STXIND or CTOP50 or whatever "local equity" ETF you prefer. Also worth noting that MAPPSG is a total return ETF meaning dividends etc. are automatically reinvested for you, which is a very nice feature because that is exactly what you should be doing when looking for growth.

    Your TFIA/TFSA

    TFIA's to me is an option between EasyEquities and ABSA. If memory serves ABSA's is cheaper if trades are more than R10k. EasyEquities have the benefit of fractional shares which means almost all the funds in the account can be invested whereas ABSA only trades in full shares meaning some money is always left over after a trade. It is minimal but could make a difference. You can't really go wrong with either of them. Easier to open an account on EE though.
  19. PTXTEN already contains NEP and ROC (10% each) so why bother buying them at all? Sent from my LG-V490 using Tapatalk

    I use Easy Equities, might switch to ABSA come November. Made up of: DBXWD (33.3%) - offshore and Rand hedge STXIND (33.3%) - local and offshore, historically good growth and some dividends DIVTRX (33.3%) - dividend focussed and showing great growth. Also gives me exposure to equities not in STXIND so more diverse. I try to allocate my R30k as soon as possible instead of R2500 pm. As far as growth goes ...I made some silly mistakes (sold at a lost, missed out on recovery) but recently recovered. I now sit at a nice and round 0% growth Sent from my LG-V490 using Tapatalk
  21. So we're in our second year of Tax Free Savings/Investment Accounts being available. Would be interested to know what everyone is doing with theirs: their holdings/savings, strategy etc.
  22. I think 45% property is way too much and would push it to more than 15% at our age. With that said, some reckon it is a good start to just go full R30k PTXTEN in your TFIA because of the dividend tax you'll save in the long run (which you'll need to reinvest for growth). I went DIVTRX for similar reasons but only R20k.
  23. Let's hope it is a sign of good things to come. I have this knack for pushing lump sums on highs and then watching it all crash :/
