  1. I can do you better - in my stock picks for this year I had Resilient and Capitec
  2. I would (and do) invest in unit trusts and ETFs that put a cap on how big the share's allocation can be. Example - CTOP50 ETF caps at 10-12%, 10x's unit trust uses their top 60 index but caps at 6%.
  3. Oh, and I get what you are saying about the phone camera but it is not going to do this: Ok fine, if you risk losing your finger to get close enough and keep the image small enough sure you'll get close but a phone's little sensor is only going to get you so far.
  4. Currently a Huawei P9 Lite. Bought it for R3000 odd on a WeChat special and it is still going strong. The minister of home affairs has an iPhone 8 - we have different views on the cost/necessity ratio of phones. But then on the other hand I buy cameras that are more expensive than phones so whatever
  5. Well, there is the price and the pre-configured droplets. The only experience I've had with a VPS in SA was with WebAfrica: 1) they are expensive and 2) there is a stupid cancellation period. On Digital Ocean if I destroy/stop the droplet the per usage billing stops accordingly and immediately. EDIT: And signing up with that link doesn't hurt. Once your are in there are a couple of vouchers you can get. Easy to get up to three/four months free hosting
  6. Just want to highlight something about Naspers: That there is a screen grab of Sygnia's flag ship fund: Skeleton 70. It is a high-risk fund but look at the Naspers exposure and consider that this is a reg 28 compliant fund meaning people can and are using it for their Retirement Annuities. 10% of all your holdings are Naspers. Wouldn't touch that fund with a 10 ft barge pole.
  7. Now we're talking. /moves everything to Digital Ocean Oh, that reminds me (shameless): if any of you ever sign up with Digital Ocean, pretty please use this referral link: https://m.do.co/c/3e171e9e1206
  8. Google "factor investing" This is the first "value" ETF we have as far as I'm aware, but we've had low volatility and momentum for quite some time and of course recently we've gotten a quality ETF.
  9. Pfft, crypto schmytco. I'm looking for a new camera. Tired of using the big DSLR. Reckon a point-n-shoot with a 1" sensor will be much more useful.
  10. Finally. They initially said the value ETF will be listed mid 2017. Better late than never.
  11. I just like food...WAAAAY too much
  12. 1. Place pizza stone in grill and heat that bitch up to high 2. Walk over to fridge and relocate the tortilla wrap, cheese, tomatoes, onions, spinach leaves to counter top 3. Dust breadboard with flour and place wrap on it 4. If you want a cheap tomato base, a squirt of tomato sauce and a splash of tobasco schmeared over the wrap will do 5. Proceed to donner the cheese and rest of stuff into the wrap 6. Slide, what is now a mini pizza, onto the stone and burn it for 10 or so minutes. If it starts "burning" brown or becomes hard (damn straight) it's ready. 7. Slide into plate, apply pizza cutter and thank the gods for your good fortune.
  13. Government won't take over the bond ("... without compensation") If it comes to that either you are going to keep paying for the loan, default or the bank will be forced to take the hit and cancel the loan.
  14. Nice, will be having T-Bones and braaibroodjies (without chutney you heathens!) tomorrow night. Tonight was homemade pizza night: yoghurt base, pizza stone, Weber... 5-10 minutes for dough, another 10 on the Weber...
  15. FIRE - Financial Independence, Retire Early ...go away.

    RA Question

    I'd stick with the original. The difference in fees isn't that great. A more important question is what the penalty fees for moving RA are one day. If there is any kind of penalty fee I wouldn't touch it. Anyway, the answer to your question is 10X (EDIT: or Allan Gray if you go the managed route)
  17. I wish he'd explain how this will work in cities' and what about people who have dumped their fortunes into their property, REIT companies etc.
  18. The benefit is that you can use a specific provider's platform (CoreShares, Sygnia etc) and have all the portfolio building blocks there (ETFs). MUCH lower fees.
  19. The Investec one is worth a look I reckon, the rest just duplicates of already existing funds so fees are the only thing separating them.
  20. "Ain't nothing but a crypto party.."
  21. There's a "spinning top" right before it. Pretty sure some TA strategy would've signalled.
  22. Comair at the moment, but that might change by tomorrow [emoji14]
