1. Anheuser-Busch InBev SA NV. JSE: ANB

AB Inbev shares

Background of AB InBev

  • Anheuser-Busch InBev is a global multinational beverage and brewing firm and the world’s largest brewer in terms of earnings, as well as one of the top 5 biggest consumer goods companies in the world. The globally renowned group commands a 30% share of the global market. The group was formed through successive mergers of three international brewing groups namely Interbrew from Belgium, AmBev from Brazil, and Anheuser-Busch from the United States.

  • AB InBev has over 200 brands in its portfolio with 16 of them individually generating more than US$ 1 billion annually in revenue. Some of its brands include Budweiser, Corona and Stella Artois and Beck’s which all form part of Anheuser-Busch InBev.

  • In 2016, the brewing giants were in the process of acquiring South Africa’s biggest brewer and multinational competitor SABMiller for a purchase price of £69 billion ($104 billion).

  • AB InBev shares are available to buy through a primary listing on the Brussels Stock Exchange, and inward-listed as a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 2016. More than a billion shares were listed for sale at R1 934 per share, and the company became the JSE’s largest company by value with a market cap of R 3.2 trillion.

  • The company currently employs over 155,000 people in 25 countries. In 2015, the company achieved revenue of more than US$43 billion.

AB InBev Shares Growth Driver

  • AB InBev boasts a geographically diversified portfolio which gives balanced exposure to both developed and developing markets. AB InBev has achieved its remarkable growth through a series of massive mergers and buy outs with some of its largest global competitors. The recent approval of the acquisition of SABMiller will continue this history, and further cement AB InBev’s status as a global powerhouse. With many of its brands being some of the most well-recognised and valuable beers in the world, AB InBev is unrivalled in its scope, capital resources and diversity, and is set to continue the extraordinary growth of AB InBev share price.

AB InBev Group Investor Tip

  • As AB InBev continues to dominate its existing markets and buy into emerging markets, the forecast looks good for the brewer and its investors. The live online stocks chart shows that AB InBev share price has recorded steady growth, with the share barely dipping once over the past five years.

  • The acquisition of SABMiller is likely to boost AB InBev’s already strong financial data and overall performance, with a resulting rise in AB InBev share price. The merger will give SABMiller shareholders an opportunity to gain exposure to a much larger global brewer, as SABMiller is replaced with a bigger and more geographically diversified asset.

  • Shareholders can therefore expect their shares to yield a strong performance in years to come, particularly as AB InBev grows so large that it becomes difficult to compete with. Investors who buy AB InBev shares could be in for a profitable ride.

2. BRITISH AM. TOBACCO PLC (JSE:BTI)

BAT shares

Background of British American Tobacco

  • British American Tobacco (JSE:BTI), is one of the top 5 tobacco companies in the world, owning popular tobacco brands like Palmal, Kent, Lucky Strike Dunhill, Kool, Benson and Hedges, Peter Stuyvesant and Rothmans. With its headquarters in London, BAT has global operations in more than 180 countries. BAT shares are for sale on the London Stock Exchange and have a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), with BAT share price flourishing.

  • Today, the cigarette maker controls almost 11% of the international cigarette market. 71% of BAT’s volumes are widely distributed in emerging and developing markets. The group is split into four regions: the Americas, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, and EEMEA (Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa). The company sold over 667 billion cigarettes in 2014, available to buy in more than 200 markets around the world, and employs more than 50 000 people.

  • 9 of the group’s 44 factories are located in Africa and BAT has had a presence in South Africa for more than 100 years. Established in 1976, the factory in Heidelberg is the eighth largest BAT factory in the world, producing more than 27 billion cigarettes a year for local and export markets.

British American Tobacco Shares Growth Driver

  • BAT has a long history of being one of the largest players in the tobacco industry and will continue to command this position for the foreseeable future. The group’s wide geographical scope and extensive product range (which it continues to expand) have allowed profits and BAT share price to flourish over the years. Cigarette sales in developed countries are continuing to decline year-on-year, but BAT has put more emphasis into targeting emerging markets, where sustained volume growth is predicted. Despite increasingly harsh regulation in many countries, the group has forecast strong performance over the coming years.

  • Barclays’ strategy is driven by four clear themes. As an African financial services provider, the group aims to buy into growth opportunities to connect Africa to international markets. Second, as a client-focused organisation, the primary focus is to make lives easier and to help customers prosper. Third, the group is simplifying business processes to better serve customers, reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Finally, the group uses a dynamic workforce and information technology to connect clients with innovations such as online and mobile banking. Barclays Africa share price and performance largely hinges on the health of African economies, which has been struggling.

British American Tobacco Group Investor Tip

  • BAT’s global reach and geographical diversity makes it an attractive proposition for investors. Despite the tobacco industry facing challenges, BAT is continuing to buy into emerging markets and has forecast intense development of Next Generation products.

  • The live online stocks chart shows that BAT share price is currently at record levels, indicating that the tobacco industry is still booming. Add to this the new Next Generation product category, and investors who purchase BAT shares could be laughing all the way to the bank.

3. SABMILLER PLC. JSE:SAB

SABMiller shares

Background of SABMiller

  • SABMiller is a South African established brewer now headquartered in London England, and has the distinction of being the second-largest brewing company on earth. SABMiller’s portfolio includes more than 200 South African and international beers, with prominent names including Fosters, Pilsner Urquell, Miller, Grolsch, Coors, Peroni, Castle and Carling. Today, the company brews, sells and markets its products in Asia, Africa, Europe, South America and North America, across 80 countries.

  • SABMiller’s successful history started during the Johannesburg gold rush of 1886, when Charles Glass founded the Castle Brewery to make alcohol for sale to the booming population. SAB was thereafter established in 1895 and became the first industrial company to list on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

  • The company has achieved worldwide dominance due to countless acquisitions over the years. SABMiller employs more than 69 000 employees, with 140 000 bottles of beer sold every minute. The company also recently started a growing soft drinks business and is one of the world’s largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products. SABMiller shares are today available to buy through a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the JSE.

  • In 2016, it was announced that an offer from Belgian-based brewer AB InBev for the full purchase of SABMiller has been approved. The deal is estimated to be valued at R1.7 trillion.

SABMiller Shares Growth Driver

  • The live online stocks chart shows that SABMiller share price has enjoyed a track record of strong gains, with the company managing to record huge year-on-year growth in revenue and profit.

  • SABMiller has been able to increase the availability of affordable beers, increasing share from the informal alcohol market in Africa and Latin America. The group has also continued to buy into investment in premium brands, including reinvigorating high-volume core lagers so they remain relevant for today’s millennial consumers, and broadening beer’s appeal so it’s the drink of choice for more people on a greater variety of occasions.

  • The acquisition of SABMiller by AB InBev will create the largest beer firm in the world by some distance, to the benefit of SABMiller share price and those who buy the shares.

SABMiller Group Investor Tip

  • SABMiller share price has already risen dramatically since the announcement of the merger with AB InBev. The forecast is that shareholders should see good dividends payouts as a result of the deal. Over the past five years, SABMiller share price has more than doubled. The consensus forecast amongst investment analysts is that SABMiller investors should hold their position in the company, whilst new shareholders could see good gains when buying SABMiller shares.

4. NASPERS LIMITED. JSE:NPN

Naspers shares

Background of Naspers

  • Established in South Africa in 1915, Naspers Limited is a media, internet and entertainment powerhouse with a footprint in more than 130 countries, and is one of the largest technology investors in the world today. The group’s principal operations are in e-commerce, video entertainment, print and online media.

  • Naspers shares are for sale through a primary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), as well as an American Depository Receipt listing on the London Stock Exchange. Naspers operations span across all six continents, reaching all major markets. The group owns market leading brands such as Multichoice, Mnet, OLX, PayU, Takealot.com and Mweb.

  • The group is organised into six business areas: Classifieds, Payments, B2C, Ventures, Video Entertainment, and Media. It has also decided to buy sizable investments in listed Chinese media company Tencent and Russian social networking platform Mail.ru

  • Naspers history lies in print media, and this section of the business has since grown to incorporate more than 60 magazine titles and 60 newspapers. The news and print businesses have been organized under the umbrella brand Media24, which also has interests in digital media, eCommerce, book publishing and print distribution.

Naspers Shares Growth Driver

  • In 2016, Naspers became only the fourth JSE-listed company with a market value of more than R1 trillion and is now the biggest local share on the JSE, accounting for 13.2% of the bourse’s value. Naspers share price has been one of the strongest on the bourse.

  • The company has achieved good results from its large international investments, particularly its 34% stake in Chinese company Tencent. Having already dominated the South African media landscape, the group is also benefiting from the weaker rand due to its international diversity.

  • The latest financial data reflected good progress across Naspers video-entertainment and internet platforms. The company further bolstered its position in most markets by aiming to buy into people, technology, content and marketing. This led to Naspers share price growth well ahead of competitors.

  • In 2015, Naspers core headline earnings, a measure the company views as a reliable indicator of its sustainable operating performance, grew 30% to R11,2 billion. This was mainly due to contributions from Tencent and some of its profitable eCommerce businesses.

  • During the period of March 2015 Naspers Media24 managed to successfully list their printing business, Novus Holdings, raising R1,1 billion capital with this listing.

Naspers Group Investor Tip

  • Naspers shares have continuously been one of the JSE stocks, outperforming the all share index by almost 300%. Investors who decided to buy R 10 000 worth of Naspers shares in 2001, would be sitting on a return of more than R 1 million.

  • The live online stocks chart shows an astronomical rise in Naspers share price, and this growth is expected to continue as the company makes more international acquisitions and investments. There is a forecast that profit growth will slow slightly due to unstable conditions in sub-Saharan Africa, but the media giant has all the clout and resources needed to continue attracting investors to buy the shares.

5. Glencore Xstrata PLC. JSE: GLN

Glencor shares

Background of Glencore

  • Glencore Xstrata is a globally famous multinational commodity trading and mining company with its headquarters in Switzerland. It has a huge global market share in internationally tradeable zinc, copper, grain and oil. Glencore shares are listed for sale through a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and it currently the 6th biggest company by market cap on the JSE. Glencore merged with Xtrata in 2013 to make up the current company.

  • Glencore is today South Africa’s largest exporter of thermal coal and is also the world’s largest ferrochrome producer. Under the name Glencore International, the company was already one of the world’s leading integrated producers and marketers of commodities. It was previously the largest company in Switzerland and the world’s largest commodities trading company.

  • Glencore International boasted a 2010 global market share of 60 percent in the internationally trade able zinc market. This was in addition to 50 percent in the internationally trade able copper market, 9 percent in the internationally trade able grain market and 3 percent in the internationally trade able oil market.

  • The current Glencore Xstrata has a significant portfolio of production facilities all around the world and supplies metals, minerals, crude oil, oil products, coal, natural gas and agricultural products to international customers in the automotive, power generation, steel production and food processing industries.

Glencore Shares Growth Driver

  • In a bid to reverse a declining Glencore Xstrata share price, the company plans to increase its market share and portfolio of worldwide activities in the marketing of metals and minerals, energy products and agricultural products and the production, refinement, processing, storage and transport of those products. Glencore hopes that it will further reduce capital investment, to around $3.5bn in the current year. They expect this to be done along with a further $400m of operating cost reductions.

  • Glencore reported a net loss of $5bn for 2015 (2014: profit $2.3bn) after the impact of write-downs and impairments caused by low commodity prices. Recently, the group raised $1.6bn from asset sales mainly from forward selling precious metals output streams. The remaining asset sale processes are believed to be proceeding well, with $4-5bn of proceeds forecast in the medium term. This is expected to increase investor confidence to buy Glencore Xstrata shares.

Glencore Group Investor Tip

  • The live online stocks chart shows that Glencore Xstrata share price has failed to deliver over the past three years as commodity prices suffered a major down turn. This unfortunate circumstance directly affected Glencore Xstrata share price, revenue and other financial data, and made investors reluctant to buy the shares.

  • Gelncore Xstrata’s strong history and global scope however makes it a good commodity to buy with the expectation of long-term growth. The share has proven itself as a great performer when global economic growth is strong.

6. COMPAGNIE FINANCIÈRE RICHEMONT SA. JSE:CFR

Richmont Holdings shares

Background of Richemont

  • Richemont is an international luxury goods group which was created in 1988 through the spin-off of the international assets owned by Rembrandt Group Limited of South Africa. These assets included significant interests in the tobacco, financial services, alcoholic beverages, gold, diamond mining and luxury goods industries. Based in Switzerland, the group currently trades on the SIX Swiss Exchange and has a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

  • Today, Richemont is the second-largest luxury goods company in the world, with a particular strength in jewellery, watches, writing instruments and premium accessories. Prestigious names include Cartier, Piaget, Vacheron Constantin, Alfred Dunhill, Van Cleef & Arpels, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Montblanc and IWC Schaffhausen.

  • Richemont has a considerable global reach across the Americas, Europe, Asia and South Africa. The group employs some 30 000 people worldwide and has a history of being on the JSE’s Top 40 Index.It is currently one of the JSE’s largest companies by market cap, at R479 billion, and Richemont share price has historically been strong.

  • Their companies’ (known as Maisons) products are for sale through a network of boutique shops owned by the group, franchise operations and boutiques owned by third parties.

Richemont Shares Growth Driver

  • Richemont has a truly global reach which gives it a long-term competitive advantage, as the group does not depend on one particular market. Richemont believes that the independence of each Maison is integral to their overall growth strategy. The group aims for long-term growth through investment in Maisons, ensuring high product quality and outstanding customer service, attracting creative management and skilled craftsmen, increasing manufacturing performance and adapting to changes in the economic environment.

  • Huge capital investments in state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facilities are now nearing conclusion, which should act as a significant driver of growth in the near future. For Richemont, the luxury goods sector has recorded weak performances recently due to the ailing global economy and an increasing unwillingness of consumers to purchase premium goods. The live online stocks chart shows that Richemont share price has taken a sharp dive in recent months, with investors reluctant to buy the shares.

Richemont Group Investor Tip

  • As a rand hedge buy in the rarified luxury goods market, Richemont shares present a unique investment opportunity for South Africans.

  • Richemont share price is likely to be affected by the consumer’s willingness to buy luxury products in a time of economic slowdown. From June 2015 to June 2016, Richemont share prices dropped by more than 27%, and the sale of luxury goods is forecast to remain slow for the foreseeable future. Richemont does however have a strong brand visibility and a global footprint which will act to its advantage.

  • The consensus forecast amongst investment analysts advises that investors currently hold their position in the company. Investors who buy Richemont shares can only hope for significant improvement in the global economy if consumer demand for luxury goods is to increase.

The live online stocks chart shows that BHP Billiton share price have taken a drastic fall. In the latest financial year, dividends were cut for the first time in the group’s history and huge financial losses were recorded.

  • The executive team has however outlined a strategy focused on creating value and growing cash returns for shareholders, believing that the group can create value in all market conditions due to its strong portfolio and financial capabilities. In terms of increasing productivity, gains of US$3.6 billion dollars are expected by the end of the 2017 financial year, in line with unit costs for all BHP Billiton’s major business decreasing by almost half. The group has identified several promising prospects for capital investments which could offer attractive medium-term growth options, whilst exploration activity is increasing to take advantage of falling costs.

  • The group has further identified opportunities to buy into at a number of their major assets which are expected to create significant value over time. Further operational productivity is forecast to stretch the capacity of existing operations in order to safely increase volumes at very low cost, and increase capital productivity.

BHP Billiton Group Investor Tip

  • BHP Billiton share price plunged to record lows in 2016. The company does however have unique, high-return growth opportunities within their portfolio, and their cash flows and disciplined capital management structure allowed them to progress these when the time is right.

  • The focus remains on businesses that generate the majority of earnings and those that increase the potential for further productivity gains and shareholder value. The company still presents an opportunity for investors to buy BHP Billiton shares at a low price. An upswing in commodity prices and effective implementation of recovery strategies could significantly strengthen BHP Billiton share price.

8. Anglo American PLC. JSE:AGL

Anglo American shares

Background of Anglo

  • Founded with £1 million worth of capital in 1917, Anglo American is a global mining giant with head offices in Johannesburg, South Africa and London in the United Kingdom. Anglo is known as the world’s largest platinum producer, currently accounting for 40% of the world’s output, whilst it is also a major producer of diamonds, nickel, copper, iron ore and coal.

  • Anglo American shares are available to buy on the London Stock Exchange and the company is a constituent of the FTSE 100, whilst it also a part of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) Top 40 Index. Anglo American share price has been weighed down by difficult trade conditions, but the stock is becoming a popular buy once more.

  • Anglo’s six core businesses include Kumba Iron Ore, Iron Ore Brazil, Coal, Base Metals, Platinum and Diamonds. The group also commands an 85% share of the De Beers Group. The asset portfolio today extends across southern Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, North America and Australia. Overall, Anglo employs more than 128 000 permanent staff and contractors worldwide.

Anglo Shares Growth Driver

  • Due to weakening economic conditions and commodity prices globally, Anglo American has been forced to reposition the company, holding assets in less important sectors for sale. The company will buy into its leading positions in the platinum, diamond and copper industries. These have been identified as assets which are long-life, competitive and well-positioned for organic growth.

  • In 2015, the group announced or completed the disposal of $2.1 billion worth of assets, and another $5 – $6 billion will be disposed of in 2016. Overall, asset number has decreased from 65 in 2013 to 45 today. Due to negative pressure in most of Anglo’s markets, underlying earnings decreased to $800 million in 2015, compared to $2.2 billion in 2014. Capital expenditure was reduced from $6 billion to $4 billion.

  • The company believes that its new, streamlined operating model will enable it to deliver positive cash flows by 2017 and reduce net debt to $ 6 billion in the medium term, to the benefit of Anglo American share price. This is in line with a forecast of a gradually strengthening economic environment, slightly stabilised commodity prices and better conditions for trade.

Anglo Group Investor Tip

  • After a steady decline on the live online stocks chart, Anglo American share price slumped to the lowest point in history at 226.7 cents at the beginning of 2016. Anglo
    American share price has however recovered, indicating strides made by the new cost-cutting initiatives and a more focused portfolio. The strategic plan has been implemented by a very capable management team who are capable of mitigating negative impacts by focusing on areas such as platinum, diamond and copper.

  • Shareholders cannot expect significant dividends or returns just yet, as the business grapples with the challenging environment in most of its markets. Financial performance is likely to continue being under par for the foreseeable future, making Anglo American shares a volatile purchase at present.

9. Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. JSE:SNH

Steinhoff shares

Background of Steinhoff

  • First listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 1998, Steinhoff International has today grown into a diversified retailer, manufacturer and sourcer of furniture, household goods and merchandise for sale in Africa, Europe and Australasia. Steinhoff shares listed on the Franfurt Stock Exchange in 2015, with a market cap of more than €19 billion, making it the biggest new listing on the exchange. This was a reflection of the group’s revenues, with 60% generated from Europe and 40% from other markets. Steinhoff shares are now for sale under a secondary listing on the JSE.

  • In Europe, Steinhoff’s portfolio includes 280 Conforama homeware stores in eight countries, employing over 13 500 people, as well as 228 European Retail Management outlets in four countries.

The car rental group Hertz, as well as diversified vehicle seller Unitrans, are also owned by the group. Globally, the group has more than 40 brands trading in 6500 shops.

Steinhoff Shares Growth Driver

  • The group’s success is based on sourcing and manufacturing products in low-cost locations and retailing them in developed markets, positioned towards budget-conscious consumers.

  • Steinhoff’s landmark decision to buy Pepkor in 2015 has given the group a massive boost and allowed them to quickly expand markets in Africa and Europe. The primary listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FSE) will also allow Steinhoff to enhance access to global capital markets, expand European operations and source new opportunities to buy into. Steinhoff’s history of success can be attributed to the development of products in low-cost locations, which gives them the chance to target developed markets whilst offering highly affordable prices.

  • The live online stocks chart shows incredible growth in Steinhoff share price.
    Steinhoff share price rose by 28% in 2014, 32% in 2015 and 17% in the first half of 2016. This has largely been due to the group’s highly-regarded and immensely popular brands, as well as continuing diversification and acquisitions. Steinhoff’s main strategic objectives include footprint expansion, continuous investment in stores, E-commerce, a vertically integrated supply chain and logistics expertise.

Steinhoff Group Investor Tip

  • Steinhoff is an extremely diversified company and is therefore shielded from difficulties in any one market. Steinhoff share price has done nothing but rise over the past few years, despite the unstable global economy. The listing on the FSE should make Steinhoff shares a good Rand hedge buy.

  • The company’s financial data makes good reading for investors, with profits and earnings per share increasing by significant amounts. Investment analysts forecast that Steinhoff shares will once again outperform the market for the foreseeable future, making Steinhoff an extremely promising purchase. Top asset management companies have been recommending Steinhoff as one of the best shares to buy.

10. FirstRand Limited. JSE:FSR

FirstRand shares

Background of FirstRand

  • FirstRand Limited is a South African financial services provider which provides services through a portfolio of leading franchises including Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), First National Bank (FNB), Wesbank and Ashburton Investments (the group’s newly established investment management business).

  • The original business was established as a specialist investment bank in the 1970s, but became what is today in 1998, through when Anglo American’s interests in FNB and Southern Life were put up for sale, and merged with the assets of RMB and Momentum. This was one of the largest transactions in the history of local financial services.

  • With FirstRand shares listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and the Namibian Stock Exchange, the group is one of the largest financial institutions in South Africa, offering an all-ecompassing variety of financial services ranging from corporate, investment, retail, personal and commercial banking, to installment finance, insurance and investment management.

  • FirstRand operates in eight other African countries: Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Lesotho, Zambia, Tanzania and Nigeria. The group also has offices in India, China, Dubai and London.

FirstRand Shares Growth Driver

  • FirstRand aims to deliver long-term franchise value and superior FirstRand share price growth within acceptable levels of volatility, with this vision driven by two growth strategies: becoming a leading South African player focusing on existing and under-represented markets, and growing African franchises positioned to benefit from trade and investment flows between Africa, Asia and Europe.

  • FirstRand recorded good performance in the latest financial year, with profits of R 15 billion, a rise of 22%. The group’s main profit contributor, FNB, performed well with a 20% increase in profits, while RMB and WesBank also recorded gains through new business volumes. Overall profit growth was however muted somewhat by the challenging economic environment in key markets. Despite this, FNB grew its presence in existing and new markets on the back of innovative products and delivery channels, particularly from electronic and digital platforms.

  • FirstRand has high levels of surplus capital for investment across the African continent, allowing it to expand its geographic reach and revenue streams, to the benefit of those who buy the shares.

FirstRand Group Investor Tip

  • In response to an increasingly pressured economy in South Africa, FirstRand has announced that it will close some branches and focus on cost efficiencies. After reporting minimal headline earnings per share of 3% in the second half on 2015, investors lost confidence in FirstRand shares. The live online stocks chart shows that FirstRand share price has suffered as a result. Shareholders did however receive a solid 20.9% increase in dividends.

  • Growth is anticipated to be slow in the near to medium term, but FirstRand shares have proven to be resilient and able to recover from slumps. The forecast for FirstRand share price is uncertain, but investment analysts have advised that investors hold their position in the company, with several also hinting that investors buy shares due to FirstRand’s innovative offerings and growth prospects.

11. SASOL LTD. JSE :SOL

Sasol shares

Background of Sasol

  • The global powerhouse that is Sasol was established in the 1950s, when the original coal-to-liquids complex at Sasolburg in South Africa started producing synthetic fuels and chemicals. The company privatized in 1979 and Sasol shares were listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

  • Today, Sasol is an international chemicals and energy company that employs more than 30 000 people in 36 countries. Sasol has been a pioneer in innovation ever since it was established, and is well known for its technological capacity, world-scale facilities, and high value product portfolio that includes liquid fuels, chemicals and low-carbon electricity. The company is one of South Africa’s largest investors in capital projects, skills development and technological research and development. Sasol is currently a dual-listed stock, as it listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2003.

  • Sasol Mining runs six coal mines that supply coal for the Secunda (Sasol Synfuels) and Sasolburg complexes. Coal is also exported from the Twistdraai Export Plant to a variety of international power generation customers. Meanwhile, the Sasol Exploration and Production Inetrnational division develops and manages oil and gas exploration in South Africa, Mozambique, Gabon, Canada and Australia. Sasol has an extensive reach in the United States, with chemical operations located in six states, as well as in Eurasia, with production facilities in Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Italy, the United Kingdom and China.

  • With a market cap of R311 billion, Sasol is one of the JSE’s Top 10 biggest stocks, and one of the most popular to buy.

Sasol Shares Growth Driver

  • The group has been expanding its footprint throughout the world by partnering with major international projects. Mega energy projects are currently a work in progress in Mozambique, USA, Qatar and Uzbekistan. Sasol has managed to revamp its business model to two upstream business units, three regional operating hubs, and four customer-facing strategic business units, supported by fit-for-purpose functions, making the business model leaner and more efficient.

  • A plunge in commodity prices has left Sasol share price vulnerable and exposed to a volatile market, making the shares an unpopular buy of late.

Sasol Group Investor Tip

  • The live online stocks chart shows that Sasol share price hit a record high of R652.99 in 2014, but this was followed by a dramatic plunge to around R400 a few months later, following the implementation of a new operating model. Since then, the company has been struggling with lower oil costs which have forced it to cut thousands of jobs and close some operations.

  • Sasol share price growth has therefore been largely stagnant over the past few years. However, a rising in oil prices in 2016 has coincided with an increased willingness to buy the shares. The consensus forecast amongst investment analysts is that the share is currently undervalued and could outperform the market in the near future, meaning that Sasol shares may be a surprisingly good purchase today, especially when coupled with the good dividends generally paid out by the company.

13. MTN GROUP LIMITED. JSE: MTN

MTN shares

Background of MTN

  • Established as M-Cell in 1994, the MTN Group is a South African multinational mobile telecommunications company which has evolved into one of the largest groups in its sector. The company now has a footprint in Africa, Europe and Asia, and enjoys a 37% share of the market in South Africa, totaling 20 million customers. Globally, the group has over 300 million subscribers.

  • The MTN Group operates from three business divisions, namely MTN-SA (South Africa), MTN International and Strategic Investments. MTN shares are available to buy on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) under the Telecommunications Service sector.

  • The group’s product portfolio includes voice, data, wireless and telemetry offerings for sale to both individuals and businesses. MTN employs more than 21 000 people, has invested more than R130 billion in capital projects over the past five years and achieved dividends growth of 273% over the past five years.

MTN Shares Growth Driver

  • The MTN Group has continued working towards achieving their goal of “leading the delivery of a bold, New Digital World” to its customers.

  • Despite a few years of negative performance, the group’s new operating structure, together with its strong cash platform, has positioned the company to take advantage of the next phase of evolution in the mobile telecommunications sector. MTN group is confident that their operations will continue benefiting from strong growth in data together with their many investments and related activities in the digital space. This will be underpinned by organic growth, partnerships and acquisitions and will position the group to become the leading digital player across its markets over the next few years.

  • MTN continues anticipating the resolution of the ongoing suspension of regulatory services which continues to restrict emerging tariff plans and promotions for MTN Nigeria.

  • The continued easing of sanctions in Iran and related economic uplift in that country has continued offering significant opportunities to expand services, particularly in the digital space where the group commands a strong market position.

  • MTN has managed to successfully migrate voice bearer interfaces to internet protocol, hence improving scalability and network simplicity. Significant amounts have been invested in building its transmission infrastructure, including submarine cables and fibre optic cables to buy into improved broadband capacity and link South Africa and the east coast of Africa to Europe.

MTN Group Investor Tip

  • The live online stocks chart shows that MTN share price took a massive hit in 2015 after the $3.9 billion fine it incurred in Nigeria. MTN share price has been battling to recover ever since and growth in established markets has been relatively slow compared to previous years, with investors cautious to buy the shares.

  • MTN has however established itself as a global player and MTN shares should make some gains in the future as the company expands its product offerings. MTN shares could therefore be a bargain buy at present, as they are currently undervalued.

By driving greater contribution from international operations, deepening enterprise offers, and staying up to date with new technology such as fibre internet and other services such as M-Pesa, insurance and the Internet of Things, Vodacom aims to cement its place as one of Africa’s leading companies and grow Vodacom share price further.

Vodacom Group Investor Tip

  • The markets in which Vodacom operates are highly competitive, and challenged by regulatory and macroeconomic risks. The buy in of new customers in South Africa is expected to remain under pressure in the near term, and Vodacom is not expected to enjoy explosive growth. The live online stocks chart, however, shows that Vodacom share price has enjoyed tremendous growth in the past five years, doubling in value.

  • Vodacom is an historically strong share which continues to deliver steady gains for shareholders who purchase them. Vodacom shares are considered to be a solid buy which delivers good yields in the long term.

15. Old Mutual Plc. JSE: OML

Old Mutual shares

Background of Old Mutual

  • Old Mutual was established in Cape Town in 1845 as the first mutual life insurance company in South Africa. Today, the group is a diversified insurance, investment, savings and banking services provider with 18.9 million customers and over 64 000 employees spread across Africa, Europe, the Americas and Asia. Old Mutual shares have been for sale through a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). It is also has secondary listings on the stock exchanges of Namibia, Malawi and Zimbabwe and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 index.

  • Old Mutual consists of four main businesses: Old Mutual Emerging Markets, Nedbank, Old Mutual Wealth and Old Mutual Asset Management.

  • Old Mutual provides the full portfolio of financial services to both personal and corporate clients. As of December 2015, the company had £303.8 billion worth of assets under its management.

Old Mutual Shares Growth Driver

  • Following the appointment of new CEO Bruce Hemphill in 2015, Old Mutual initiated a strategic review and formed a new strategy to separate its four underlying businesses by the end of 2018. All four of the divisions had benefited from significant capital investment and were registering strong performance in sizeable markets, but there were found to be limited synergies between them, which hampered growth in Old Mutual share price.

  • Management has said that the separation of the group will be effected in a manner that maximises value to shareholders over time, but details of exactly how this will happen are yet to be confirmed.

  • Commentators suggest that Old Mutual may shrink down to a company focused on South Africa and emerging markets banking and insurance, with shares available to buy through a primary listing on the JSE and a strategic minority stake in Nedbank. UK-based Old Mutual Wealth and Us-based Old Mutual Asset Management will most likely be sold, with Old Mutual shareholders receiving good payouts.

  • The decision follows Old Mutual undergoing substantial changes to simplify their business, focus on customers and core competencies, buy into operational performance and reduce risk through lowering of debt and investment in governance and controls.

Old Mutual Group Investor Tip

  • With Old Mutual not having released many details about the separation process, there is currently uncertainty about the prospects of the company and Old Mutual share price. Current shareholders may see good profits coming from the sale of key aspects of the company though. Market analysts are currently predicting that Old Mutual may outperform the market, with the forecast that Old Mutual share price could rise by 10% on the live online stocks chart in the near future. The South African and emerging market businesses, which will form the basis of Old Mutual in the future, have been performing well and recording positive growth. This should give investors the confidence to purchase Old Mutual shares.

16. Sanlam Limited. JSE: SLAM

Sanlam shares

Background of Sanlam

  • In 1918 die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Lewens Assuransie Maatskappij (Sanlam) opened its doors and in 1998 the company was demutualised and Sanlam Limited shares were listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and the Namibian Stock Exchange. Today the company has operations in South Africa,Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, India, the UK and Malaysia. Sanlam has also made moves to buy into Australia, the USA and the Philippines.

  • It also has a stake in Micro-Ensure Holdings Limited, a UK-based company specialising in micro-insurance. This company has more than 10 million enrolled clients across India and Africa. Sanlam is well known for lending services in the following fields: financial planning, insurance, trusts, retirement, asset management, short-term insurance, portfolio and risk management, investment and wealth, and capital market activities.

  • Sanlam shares have a history of producing good returns for those who purchase them, while the company focuses on providing regular dividends to its shareholders.

Sanlam Shares Growth Driver

  • The group is achieving strong performance in the affluent market, and the buy in of investment portfolio manager Glacier will further enhance current product solutions in line with regulatory changes such as retirement reform. There was also an aggressive focus on ease of doing business for intermediaries and the end client. Improving risk business sales in the middle and affluent markets have been a special focus area to buy into. This was achieved through product enhancements, underwriting and process improvements, improved product support and training. Sanlam Sky, which offers a wide portfolio of simple and affordable financial solutions, has the potential to deliver good growth despite economic challenges. This business will grow its agency and affiliated intermediary footprint as well as group relationships. Expanding the product range in line with client needs is another focus area.

  • MiWay Insurance and Sanlam Life launched MiWay Life. MiWay Insurance is a direct general insurance company owned by Sanlam and has had very encouraging performance. More growth is expected from this affordable insurance company, which should benefit Sanlam share price and encourage investors to buy the shares.

Sanlam Group Investor Tip

  • The diversified nature of the Group’s operations, combined with the strength of the Sanlam brand and the brands of international partners, contributed to total new business volumes that grew by 18%, the combination of 24% growth in new insurance business and 15% growth in new investment mandates received. Net result from financial services (net operating profit) grew by 27%, with the live online stocks chart showing that Sanlam share price rose by 26%. This is a very satisfactory achievement in an environment where the South African economy is growing by less than 2%.

  • Sanlam shares have always been a popular buy on the JSE, and Sanlam share price should continue its upward rise.

17. South 32 Limited. JSE: S32

South32 shares

Background of South32

  • In May 2015, South32 successfully demerged from BHP Billiton and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and the London Stock Exchange.

  • South32 is a globally diversified metals and mining company with high-quality and well maintained operations mining and producing bauxite, alumina, aluminium, energy and metallurgical coal, manganese, nickel, silver, lead and zinc in Australia, South Africa and South America.

  • The roots of South32 are in the Southern Hemisphere, with a head office in Perth and regional hubs in Perth and Johannesburg. Management of South32 Marketing is based in Singapore, with offices in London to support customers in Europe, the Middle East and Atlantic regions and in South Africa and Australia to service their domestic customers. South32’s stance as a producer, refiner and marketer of commodities allows it to minimise costs and maximise returnsacross the supply chain. A fully integrated marketing function allows the group to deliver a differentiated sales proposition to its customers relative to other producers and enables South32 to optimise its supply chain to meet customer needs.

  • The company’s portfolio includes assets with a strong and successful history, which have been working in Africa for 78 years, Australia for 80 years and South America for 25 years.

South32 Shares Growth Driver

  • South32’s strategy is to buy into high quality metals and mining operations with proven track records. South32 aims to maintain financial discipline and optimise its portfolio to deliver sector leading shareholder returns and a rising South32 share price. Shared value drives the company’s decision-making process, which is implemented by directors with decades of experience in resources, finance and corporate governance. In August 2015, the company’s first annual report showed marginal profits: an impressive feat in a sector which has been severely impacted by stuttering commodity prices worldwide.

  • In line with the difficult trade conditions, the company is planning to reduce controllable costs by US$350 million per annum or more and reduce capital expenditure by 9%.

  • South32’s asset base is fortunately well capitalized, having received significant investor buy in. The group is seeking to optimise the performance of its existing assets, without venturing too much into new acquisitions at this stage. South32’s geographic, commodity and technical diversity are viewed as advantages which will shield it from further drops in commodities.

South32 Group Investor Tip

  • Prudent management has seen South32 managing to control and streamline costs, with the live online stocks chart showing that South32 share price has performed better than most other stocks in the sector. The mining sector is currently a very risky market to buy into, but investors who do so may consider South32 shares a viable option, based on the company’s strong industry experience and impressive performance in its first listed year.

  • Polled investment analysts are advising investors to hold their position in the company while commodity prices make a turnaround. The company is still trying to negotiate the strong trade winds by developing a more streamlined business model, so there is still some uncertainty as to the future for those who buy South32 shares.

19. Nedbank Group Limited. JSE: NED

Nedbank shares

Background of Nedbank

  • The Nedbank Group is South Africa’s fourth largest banking group and a constituent of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) Top 40 Index. It forms a part of the Old Mutual Group. Nedbank’s history can be traced back to 1831, with the establishment of the Cape of Good Hope Bank in Cape Town.

  • The group provides transactional, corporate and investment banking services to a diverse client base including leading corporations, financial institutions, state owned entities and governments in South Africa and the rest of Africa. The group is split into four major divisions: Corporate and Investment Banking, Retail and Business Banking, Nedbank Wealth and Rest of Africa.

  • Nedbank’s primary market is in South Africa, but the group also has a widespread presence in the rest of southern and East Africa, with subsidiaries and banks in Swaziland, Namibia, Mozambique, Malawi, Lesotho and Zimbabwe. The group has also decided to buy into partnerships in West and Central Africa. Outside Africa the group has established a presence in key global financial centres, providing international financial services for SA-based multinational and high-net-worth clients in the Isle of Man, Guernsey, Jersey and London, Toronto and Dubai.

  • The group has approximately 7.4 million clients, 30 000 employees, an asset value of around R900 billion and a JSE market cap of approximately R90 billion.

Nedbank Shares Growth Driver

  • Despite the tough economic and business environment in South Africa and emerging economies in Africa, Nedbank has managed to maintain solid performance, with headline earnings coming in at a record R10.2 billion in 2015. Corporate and Investment Banking contributes almost half of the group’s earnings, with Nedbank managing to establish itself as a leading industry expert in mining and resources, oil and gas, telecoms, energy, infrastructure and commercial property finance.

  • The group’s client base is expanding year-on-year, and a number of key partnerships have allowed for healthy expansion out of South Africa. Most important of these is the alliance that was formed with Ecobank in 2014. The decision to buy 20% of Ecobank, which is Africa’s largest banking network expanding across 39 countries, is forecast to drive long-term growth for the group and Nedbank share price.

  • Despite a muted forecast for South Africa’s economy and the financial sector as a whole, Nedbank is making substantial capital investments in client-centred innovation, growing transactional banking volumes and establishing a pan-African footprint.

Nedbank Group Investor Tip

  • Nedbank share price has suffered due to economic certainty in its main market, but the group is continuing to deliver strong dividends and solid increases in net asset value per share. Growth is expected to be slower in the short-term, but a strong management team and good strategies are in place to mitigate the effects of economic instability.

  • For sale on the JSE, Nedbank shares are currently an attractively priced purchase and offer good investment value, with great potential upside once economic conditions improve slightly.

20. Barclays Africa Grp Ltd. JSE: BGA

Barclays shares

Background of Barclays Africa

  • Barclays started out as a goldsmith banking business in London in 1690. In 1736, James Barclay joined the business as a partner. Several years later in 1896, a group of banks in London and in the English provinces united to form a joint-stock bank called Barclays and Co.

  • With shares available to buy on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) Barclays Africa Group Limited was formed through the combination of Absa Group Limited and Barclays’ African operations in 2013. With its head office in South Africa, the group also has majority stakes in banks in Mozambique, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Mauritius, Ghana, Seychelles and Zambia. The group has representative offices in Namibia and Nigeria, and insurance operations in South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia.

  • The group offers a portfolio of products and services for personal and business banking, credit card facilities, corporate and investment banking, portfolio investment, wealth and investment management, and insurance.

  • The group has grown to service 12.3 million customers, at more than 1 250 branches across Africa. Barclays Africa share price continues to remain pressured due to the unstable global economy, but is still a popular share to buy and trade.

Barclays Africa Shares Growth Driver

  • As one of Africa’s largest banking groups, Barclays Africa has access to massive capital resources which have allowed it to extend its reach across the continent. The latest financial data demonstrated above-average performance, with the bank increasing headline earnings by 10% and upping return on equity by 17%, the highest percentage gains since the global financial crisis started in 2008.

  • Barclays’ strategy is driven by four clear themes. As an African financial services provider, the group aims to buy into growth opportunities to connect Africa to international markets. Second, as a client-focused organisation, the primary focus is to make lives easier and to help customers prosper. Third, the group is simplifying business processes to better serve customers, reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Finally, the group uses a dynamic workforce and information technology to connect clients with innovations such as online and mobile banking. Barclays Africa share price and performance largely hinges on the health of African economies, which has been struggling.

Barclays Africa Group Investor Tip

  • From May 2015 to May 2016, Barclays Africa share price experienced a drop of more than 26%. The forecast from polled investment analysts who advised that Barclays Africa would outperform the market earlier in the year, has deteriorated, with analysts now advising investors to hold their position in the company. Very few are recommending that investors buy Barclays Africa shares.

  • Barclays recently reduced its stake in Barclays Africa Group, by putting shares up for sale and selling 12.2%, leaving it with a holding of 50.1%. This is part of a plan for Barclays to raise cash, shrink on a global basis and lessen capital burdens. With current uncertainty as to the future of the group, confidence in the purchase of Barclays Africa shares has been hampered, with Barclays Africa share price erratic.

21. Aspen Pharmacare Holdings. JSE: APN

Aspen shares

Background of Aspen

  • Aspen Pharmacare Holdings Limited is a global supplier of branded and generic pharmaceuticals and nutritional products in selected territories. Aspen has a proud history of more than 160 years, operating in more than 150 countries across the world. The company supplies a large portfolio of products, with more than 650 branded medicines, specialising in generics and treatments for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis.

  • In 2003 Aspen was already the largest generic medicine distributor in South Africa, when Boehringer, Ingelheim and GlaxoSmithKline filed anti-competitive charges against the company. After this, Aspen was granted licenses from the companies to create generic versions of antiretrovirals (ARV) for sale to governments in Sub-Saharan Africa.

  • The group has 26 manufacturing facilities, with an active presence in 76 countries on all 6 habitable continents. Aspen manufactures approximately 23 billion tablets annually. Aspen shares are up for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), where Aspen share price has enjoyed a strong history of growth.

Aspen Shares Growth Driver

  • Areas of focus for Aspen in the latest financial year included lowering the cost for the anti-coagulant portfolio, improving margins in infant nutritionals, bringing new manufacturing capacity and technologies online, building the third party API business and leveraging intellectual property that Aspen recently made moves to buy. The value created by these initiatives is expected to grow progressively after 2016, with a resultant rise in Aspen share price. Aspen is aiming to earn an additional R2.5 billion from these synergies by the 2019 financial year.

  • Revenue from customers in Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (“Europe CIS”) increased 45% to R10.5 billion. Finished dose form pharmaceutical sales to healthcare providers comprised R6.9 billion of the total sales.

  • Sales to customers in Latin America, excluding Venezuela, grew 44% to R3.4 billion, and were supported by the infant nutritionals purchase in the prior year. In Venezuela, sales to customers were up 143% to R2.7 billion after adhering to hyper inflationary accounting principles. Revenue in the Asia Pacific business was 5% lower at R8.1 billion whilst EBITA declined by 10% to R1.7 billion.

  • In Australia sales to customers were 8% lower at R7.2 billion. Sales to customers in Asia accelerated by 39% to R1.3 and were led by strong advances in Japan. In Sub-Saharan Africa, revenue was 1% higher at R2.8 billion.

Aspen Group Investor Tip

  • Aspen share price has risen from R100 in 2011, to more than R300 in 2016, making Aspen shares a profitable purchase for JSE investors. As of May 2016, the consensus forecast amongst 12 polled investment analysts covering Aspen Pharmacare advised that the company will outperform the market.

  • The company expects that new acquisitions, capital investments and a branching out into international markets will start to reap dividends for shareholders and investors within a few years. Shareholders will therefore be well advised to hold onto their shares in anticipation for this, whilst new investors should be encouraged to buy Aspen shares.

22. Shoprite Holdings Limited. JSE:SHP

Shoprite Holdings shares

Background of Shoprite

  • With its headquaters in South Africa, Shoprite Holdings Ltd. is an investment holding company whose combined subsidiaries constitute the largest fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) retail operation on the African continent.

  • This giant group today operates in 1751 corporate and 360 franchise outlets in 15 countries across Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. Shoprite shares are listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), with secondary listings on the Namibian and Zambian stock exchanges.

  • Shoprite has a history of providing quality food and household items to buy at some of the most affordable prices possible, with a goal to target consumers of all income levels.

  • With a market cap of R311 billion, Sasol is one of the JSE’s Top 10 biggest stocks, and one of the most popular to buy.

  • The Shoprite Group became part of the JSE Top 40 Index in 2008 and a solid Shoprite share price has maintained the group’s position as a blue-chip stock to buy ever since. The group has a massive annual turnover of more than R120 billion.

Shoprite Shares Growth Driver

  • Shoprite‘s South African supermarket division generates just more than 83% of total trading profit and has also continued dominating the country’s food retailing business in terms of trading area, number of outlets and loyal support from customers who buy its products. The brand has become immensely popular and renowned for its affordability and mass market appeal. In its main geography of South Africa, the customer base closely mirrors the demographic profile of the country, with more than 28 million customers shopping at the group’s supermarkets per month.

  • Growth has also been driven by catering not only to low income markets, but
    also high and middle income groups. An ambitious and quick expansion has led to the group becoming the 107th largest retailer in the world, 41 places ahead of its nearest African rival.

  • Despite a difficult 2015 financial year due to the global and local economic crises, the group managed to increase sales by 11.2% and increase market share for the ninth consecutive year. The group managed to contain internal food inflation at 4.6%, below the official inflation figure of 6.8%, which played a huge role in maintaining profitability.

Shoprite Group Investor Tip

  • Shoprite is continuing to grow its operations by catering to South Africa’s growing population, opening new stores in areas that were not previously served by the group. Meanwhile, the group continues to buy into its geographical distribution across Africa, has managed to open new stores and increase its employment base. This all signals a very healthy company which has a proven ability to weather a negative financial forecast and maintain Shoprite share price and dividends. The live online stocks chart shows a stable Shoprite share price for the past five years. As economic conditions improve, the group is likely to continue and improve on its status as Africa’s largest retail chain. Investors who purchase Shoprite shares will most likely see good long-term returns on investment.

24. MONDI PLC PRE. JSE: MNDI

Mondi PLC PRE shares

Background of Mondi

  • Mondi is a large international packaging and paper group, with Mondi PLC shares available to buy through a dual-listed structure on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and the London Stock Exchange. Today, the group boasts a staff complement of around 25 000 employees, with operations stretching across 30 countries.

  • The company’s history stems to 1967, when Anglo American built the Merebank Mill in Durban. Since then the company has grown through the purchase of numerous other businesses and expansions into Europe and Russia. In South Africa, the company currently manages more than 300 000 hectares of forestry plantations, directly employs over 1 900 people and has a contractor base of more than 15 000 people. Since 2004, the company has made significant capital investments to ensure its mills maintain international standards of product quality, competitive costing and environmental management

  • Mondi’s product portfolio includes office paper, recycled and virgin containerboard, kraft paper, corrugated packaging, consumer goods packaging, industrial bags and extrusion coating for sale to numerous industries. These include the automotive, building and construction, chemicals, agriculture, food and beverages, medical, pharmaceutical, pet care and home and personal care industries.

  • The group recorded a 25% increase in operating profits in 2015, at €987 million.

Mondi Shares Growth Driver

  • Mondi registered excellent financial performance in 2015. Apart from the 25% climb in profits, the business increased underlying earnings per share by 25%, cash generated from operations by 24% and return on capital employed by 20.5%, although Mondi share price has slowed on the JSE.

  • Completed major projects played a huge role in driving this positive data, contributing €50 million. Mondi also has the advantage of a strong capital investment pipeline including €450 million worth of approved and in progress projects. The company is continuing with its portfolio optimisation and refinement, whilst a number of acquisitions have been made recently which will further enhance the company. Six operations were closed in 2015 and four were sold to optimise cost structure and refine product mix.

Mondi Group Investor Tip

  • In line with the recent slowing of the South African economy and the weakness of the rand, the live online stocks chart shows that Mondi share price hit a slump in early 2016, but the losses have been relatively minimal. Whilst there is currently some weakening of markets for certain packaging paper grades, this is being offset by firmer prices in the European markets following recent industry capacity rationalisation. Lower energy and related production costs, as well as an incremental increase in the contribution of major completed capital projects, should benefit the group’s performance in the short term and encourage investors to buy Mondi shares.

  • Mondi is currently focusing on developing ‘Green’ product ranges which is forecast to create more diversification, market exposure and a firmer Mondi share price. The group’s robust business model, high-quality low-cost asset base, clear strategic focus and philosophy of continuous improvement makes Mondi shares a relatively safe buy.

25. REMGRO LIMITED. JSE: REM

Remgro shares

Background of Remgro

  • Remgro Limited’s history stems back to the 1940s, when the Voorbrand tobacco company (forerunner to Rembrandt) was established by Dr Anton Rupert in South Africa. With significant capital resources, the company steadily started diversifying into other sectors and began to gain an international foothold. Remgro itself was incorporated in 2000 following a major restructuring of the Rembrandt Group. Today, Remgro is an investment holding company with shares for sale in the Diversified Industrials sector of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), with a vast portfolio that includes investments in food, liquor and home care; banking; healthcare; insurance; financial; industrial; infrastructure as well as media and sport.

  • The group currently includes more than 30 investee companies. The group has achieved the buy in of notable multi-million rand investees such as Unilever South Africa, RCL Foods, RMB Holdings, Mediclinic and Total South Africa.

  • Their major profitable activities are focused mainly on the management of investments and the provision of support rather than being involved in the day-to-day management of business units of investees.

  • Remgro‘s subsidiaries that are not wholly owned include listed companies with independent boards of directors on which this company has non-executive representation. Non-subsidiary investments are made up of both listed and unlisted companies that are not controlled by Remgro and which are mostly associated companies due to significant influence and board representation.

Remgro Shares Growth Driver

  • Working with its decentralized investment philosophy, Remgro achieves growth in its investees through active strategic, managerial or financial support or creating an environment conducive to deal-making. Remgro aims to provide successful management through a proper understanding of the investee companies’ businesses and the selection of appropriate executives to serve on boards. Remgro also focuses on boosting the sustainability of companies through the identification of market trends and new technology which can impact on busineses.

  • Remgro further minimises shareholder risk through its exceptionally diverse portfolio, which allows it to weather difficult times in certain markets. The group
    continues to have large capital resources which allow it to buy majority shares in a wide variety of companies.

  • Remgro’s major investments in the food, liquor, home care and healthcare industries have delivered solid performance recently, but the challenging economic and trade conditions in South Africa saw subdued earnings for the insurance, industrial, infrastructure and media and sports investments, putting Remgro share price under pressure.

Remgro Group Investor Tip

  • The live online stocks chart shows that the firing of Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene in December 2015 had a negative effect on Remgro share price, but the company has since made good gains. Investment analysts are currently predicting that Remgro share price will outperform the market, hinting that these are good shares to purchase at present.

  • Core businesses in the financial sector are expected to bounce back in the near future, restoring confidence to buy Remgro shares, whilst other businesses such as Mediclinic are also forecast to record strong performances.

27. Capitec Bank Holdings Limited JSE: CPI

Capitec shares

Background of Capitec

  • Established in 2001, Capitec has become South Africa’s fastest growing bank, and today has more than 7.3 million clients, 720 branches and over 11 000 employees. With shares listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 2002, the bank is renowned for its affordability and simplified model of banking, which has received superb buy in from clients of all income levels. Capitec already commands more than 20% of South Africa’s banking market share and has a market cap of almost R70 billion. The bank is also the first in South Africa to offer clients branch banking over weekends, with branches open on both Saturday and Sunday.

  • Capitec believes in harnessing the power of technology to make banking easier and more convenient. The bank offers all-inclusive solutions such as Global One, which enables clients to transact, save and access credit in real-time. Capitec also offers personal money management and business banking services.

Capitec Shares Growth Driver

  • In its latest financial report, Capitec reported the highest annual client growth in the bank’s history. A remarkable 1.03 million new clients were netted by the bank in the 2016 financial year, and headline earnings shot up by 26% to R3.2 billion. All of Capitec’s other key performance indicators such as net interest income, net loan fee income and net transaction fee income registered remarkable growth for the year. Capitec share price also increased by 16% for the year, whilst shareholders enjoyed a 26% growth in dividends.

  • To facilitate the increased demand for Capitec’s services, capital expenditure for the year stood at R704 million, which was used for the growing ATM and branch network, as well as the purchase of property.

  • The bank’s affordable and simplified services have been the main factor in its growth, and this has made Capitec particularly well-positioned to attract new clients during the currently unstable economic environment. Capitec has laid out a number of short, medium and long-term goals which it looks well capable of achieving. These include increasing the number of branches by 50 per year, increasing internet and mobile banking, increasing awareness of the bank throughout all income groups and offering a lower cost of credits to clients.

Capitec Group Investor Tip

  • The live online stocks chart shows that Capitec share price has boasted astronomical growth over the past two years, increasing from R20.70 at the beginning of 2014 to more than R57 by mid-2016.

  • The bank is continuing to deliver services which are simpler and more transparent than most of South Africa’s other big banks. This, along with the affordability of its services, gives Capitec a distinct advantage during the economic downturn, and will also attract new clients even during times of economic prosperity.

  • Capitec stocks are extremely prosperous at present, which may suggest that there isn’t much potential for upside growth, but analysts forecast that the shares will probably achieve even more growth for investors who buy them in the years to come. Capitec shares are therefore still an attractive buy today.

28. MediClinic International plc. JSE:MEI

Mediclinic shares

Background of MediClinic

  • In 1983 MediClinic International was founded by Dr Edwin Hertzog. He was commissioned by the then Rembrandt Group, which is now known as the Remgro Group to undertake a feasibility study to determine how profitable private hospitals could be. A mere three years down the line, MediClinic shares were listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in South Africa. In 1986 the group already had three hospitals under construction and a further four in commission. Today the group’s head office is situated in Stellenbosch and prides itself on having deep operational expertise. The company does business in Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and also has roots in the UK through its minority stake in the Spire Healthcare Group.

  • Looking at the revenue basis of the enlarged group, it will soon be the third largest private healthcare provider in South Africa, the largest in the UAE and the largest private medical network in Switzerland.

  • The enlarged group will operate 73 hospitals with about 10 200 beds and 37 clinics, and nearly 32 000 employees. In 2006, MediClinic entered into an agreement to buy a controlling interest in Emirates Healthcare in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In 2007, MediClinic went on to buy Hirslanden – the largest private hospital group in Switzerland. The group subsequently went on to purchase a 29.9% interest in Spire Healthcare, a UK-based private healthcare group.

MediClinic Shares Growth Driver

  • In February 2016, MediClinic completed a big merger with Al Noor Hospitals. During the same period, the healthcare group officially started trading on the London Stock Exchange. MediClinic International was officially replaced by Al Noor Hospital Groups in the JSE/FTSE indices. Al Noor was later renamed to MediClinic International and will be the biggest private hospital group in the UAE.

  • MediClinic has established a dominant foothold in the South African private hospital market, and MediClinic share price has enjoyed a strong performance which reflects the company’s returns on capital investment, both locally and internationally. MediClinic focuses on putting science at the heart of its healthcare approach, providing facilities with international-standard technology, backed up by sound medical expertise and empathetic nursing staff. The company is aiming to buy further into the South African and international markets with the development of numerous new hospitals earmarked through its dedicated expansion programme.

MediClinic Group Investor Tip

  • MediClinic’s increasing reach on the global stage, and its partnerships with prominent private hospital groups, should stand it in good stead for the future. The
    live online stocks chart shows that MediClinic share price has been wavering with the new acquisitions and the Al Noor merger, but is forecast to deliver strong returns once the full effect of these transactions takes place. MediClinic shares are therefore a good buy, particularly when considering expanding demand for healthcare in South Africa, the company’s biggest market.

29. RMB Holdings Limited. JSE: RMH

RMB Holdings shares

Background of RMB Holdings

  • Royal Merchant Bank (RMB) Holdings is an investment company, with its main holding being a 34% interest in FirstRand Bank Limited, one of southern Africa’s premium banking groups. The group’s history can be traced back to the consolidation of Rand Consolidated Investments and Rand Merchant Bank in South Africa in 1987, giving the group a wide interest in the financial services sector. RMB Holdings shares were listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 1992 and the group currently trades under the ticker RMH, with a market cap of R78 billion.

  • The group has a significant influence on FirstRand Bank (which has a market cap of R 300 billion) through non-executive representation on boards, in line with RMB’s decentralised management philosophy. FirstRand Bank currently has control of First National Bank, Wesbank, Royal Merchant Bank and Ashburton Investments.

  • The group recently announced that it will expand its current single investment in FirstRand through the purchase of a 25% stake in leading South African property group Atterbury.

RMB Holdings Shares Growth Driver

  • The live online stocks chart shows that RMB Holdings share price has been fairly stagnant on the JSE, as a result of the tough economic conditions.

  • RMB largely aims to be a value adding long-term partner to FirstRand bank, enabling strong leadership and innovation in the banking and financial services sectors. The group positions itself amongst the key shareholders, aiming to buy heavily into decision-making on a strategic level.

  • The group has three strategic priorities, comprising portfolio optimisation, structural benefits and growth. In line with RMB’s vision of long-term growth, portfolio management includes holding investments for as long as needed to optimise their value. Value is created through growth of intrinsic value and paid dividends, with the objective to deliver RMB share price performance that is above market average. The group is continually seeking to contribute to the diversification of FirstRand’s portfolio and reach throughout South Africa and globally, to maintain balance between growth, yield and consistent RMB share price.

  • In the weak local and international economic environment, FirstRand has maintained respectable performance, with FNB, RMB and Wesbank all outperforming the market. The group’s intense buy in to technological innovation has led to great success in attracting new customers.

  • Meanwhile, the Atterbury investment seeks to establish a diverse variety of entrepreneurial and owner-managed businesses with good track records of managing and building property portfolios in the commercial, retail and industrial sectors.

RMB Holdings Group Investor Tip

  • RMB Holdings has recorded good performance in the face of the economic downturn, consistently reporting profit growth and distributing higher dividends. FirstRand bank is continuing to attract new customers and is undoubtedly one of the most stable powerhouses in South Africa’s banking industry.

  • All the data suggests that RMB Holdings share price will climb in the near future. This is echoed by the consensus forecast of investment analysts, who are recommending RMB stocks as a good buy, especially since they are currently hovering at lower than normal prices due to the recession.

30. BID Corporation Limited. JSE: BID

Bidcorp shares

Background of Bidcorp

  • Formerly a division of Bidvest, Bidcorp is a diversified, large-scale food services group which listed as a standalone entity on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in May 2016. The company was unbundled by Bidvest and listed at a value of around R90 billion, making it the largest primary listing on the JSE since Vodacom in 2009.

  • Bidcorp’s businesses focus on everything from catering to food processing, operating in more than 20 countries in southern Africa, Europe, Australasia, South America and the Middle East. Services are for sale mainly to pubs, restaurants and hotels. The group occupies well-established, leading and rapidly growing market positions across a good balance of developed and developing countries. The live online stocks chart shows that Bidcorp share price has been volatile in its short history on the JSE, but this data is expected to improve as more investors buy into the new company.

Bidcorp Shares Growth Driver

  • Bidcorp historically accounted for more than half of the Bidvest Group’s operating profit. Bidvest decided to unbundle Bidcorp after it reached fantastic success in its market, with the belief that it was more valuable as a standalone listed company.

  • The unbundling was aimed to provide Bidvest and Bidcorp with their own identities and independence. The move has been widely lauded as a significant step in boosting Bidcorp’s journey to becoming a worldwide leader in the food service industry, positioning the company perfectly for organic and acquisitive growth.

  • The listing will further allow management to fully buy into realising opportunities in the food service industry, mitigate and manage specific risks, and create a more comprehensive and clear platform for growth. The listing of Bidcorp represents a significant development in the growing consumer services industry, and gives investors a chance to buy specifically into Bidvest’s extensive food assets.

  • Another factor in Bidcorp’s success is its wide geographical footprint. With operations across five continents, in both developed and developing economics, the company is well set to deal with global economic challenges.

Bidcorp Group Investor Tip

  • Bidcorp’s executive team have acknowledged that Bidcorp share price will be volatile at first, as would naturally be the case for a company which has just listed on the JSE. The company is however now superbly positioned for the next phase of its growth and internationalisation. The forecast is that Bidcorp will effectively capitalise
    on its powerful position in the food services industry and grow its global footprint. With a range of global opportunities and the potential to boost the performance of its existing asset portfolio, the prospects for investors who buy Bidcorp shares look promising. Analysts are of the opinion that Bidcorp share price may record strong growth going forward, making the shares a solid and low-risk purchase.

31. Discovery Holdings Limited. JSE: DSY

Discovery shares

Background of Discovery

  • Discovery Holdings is a diversified South Africa-based company offering a range of products in the medical aid, insurance, credit card and investments spheres. With Discovery shares listed for sale under the Financial Services sector of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 1998, the group specializes in health insurance and wellness, life assurance and short-term insurance.

  • The company was established in 1992 as a small specialist risk insurance company. From this humble history, the group has grown to cover around 5.1 million clients across its various divisions today. Discovery first entered the global market in 2004, when it decided to buy into a partnership with Prudential to open PruHealth in the United Kingdom. In 2009, the group expanded into China with the purchase of 25% of Ping An Health Insurance Company. Since then, the group has expanded significantly into Asia, the UK, the United States and Australia.

  • Operating divisions include Discovery Health, Discovery Life, Discovery Insure, Discovery Invest, Discovery Vitality and Discovery Card. The company currently covers around 5.1 million clients across its various divisions. Main clients are large, medium and small-sized employers for health insurance, and individual clients who buy health or life insurance and investment products. Performance highlights for the group in 2016 included a 16% rise in headline earnings, up to R 4 billion. Market cap stands at R76 billion.

Discovery Shares Growth Driver

  • Over the past several years, the company has invested significant capital in strengthening its insurance, behavioural and technology assets to succeed in the markets in which it operates and build a global business of scale. The concept of shared value insurance has been of particular importance, under Discovery’s Vitality programme. The company is working on building a network of global partnerships under Vitality.

  • In its main market of South Africa, Discovery reached some significant milestones in 2016, with Discovery Health exceeding 3 million clients and Discovery Invest reaching R50 billion worth of investments under management. Discovery Insure and Discovery Life are both showing strong growth in profits and new business, to the benefit of Discovery share price and those who buy the shares.

  • Meanwhile, the UK market has been consolidated and continues to be effectively tapped into with new product offerings and digital innovations. The group’s partners in Asia, North America and Australia are also performing well. Discovery’s overall strength is illustrated in its financial data, which shows that new business grew by 51% in 2016 and shareholders received an average equity return of 18%.

  • In addition to targeting new acquisitions and partnerships, Discovery plans to launch an innovative full services retail bank in the near future, based on considerable successes achieved by Discovery Card.

Discovery Group Investor Tip

  • Discovery has recorded a slowdown in earnings of late, and the live online stocks chart shows that Discovery share price reflects this. The company has however said that investments into new businesses have been muting operating profits, and that this should turn around as the new investments start to reap dividends.

  • As Discovery rapidly expands its offerings and geographical diversity, some analysts are concerned that the group is putting too much onto its plate and that Discovery share price may underperform the market. Historically a very strong stock, Discovery shares may currently be in a period of dwindling, but will still be viewed as a potential long-term buy.

Background of Anglo American Platinum

  • Anglo American Platinum’s history dates back to 1995, when Johannesburg Consolidated Investments unbundled and its platinum interests became Amplats. Later renamed Anglo American Platinum, the group is today the world’s leading primary producer of platinum group metals, accounting for around 38% of global supply. Anglo American Platinum’s head office is situated in Johannesburg, with sales and marketing offices located in London and Singapore in order to service a global network of customers. Amplats shares are listed for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

  • Most of the group’s asset portfolio is located in South Africa, where it owns eight mines and is involved in seven joint ventures. The group also aims to buy into international expansion, with a number of smelting and refining facilities, as well as exploration partners in Brazil, China, Canada and Russia.

  • Anglo American Platinum employs more than 45 000 people, recorded revenue of R 10.9 billion in 2015 and has a market cap of more than R100 billion. The live online stocks chart shows a strong recovery in Anglo American Platinum share price after several years of tough performance.

  • The Anglo American Platinum name is synonymous with quality products, commercial success and a top-class executive structure. The refinery team strives to deliver purity levels that exceed global market standards, with platinum and palladium typically achieving 99.99% purity, and rhodium, iridium and ruthenium achieving 99.95% purity. This industry-leading product quality has been a major factor in customer willingness to buy Anglo American Platinum product.

  • Anglo American Platinum recently became a founding member of the World Platinum Investment Council, which is funded by six of South Africa’s leading producers and aims to stimulate global demand and enhance the sustainability of the industry. The group also supports Platinum Guild International, which focuses on the jewellery industry in the high potential markets of China and India.

  • Due to huge labour unrest and an unstable economic climate, the group is in the process of selling many of its mines in South Africa in order to stay profitable.

Anglo American Platinum Group Investor Tip

  • The live online stocks chart shows that Anglo American Platinum share price reached record lows in 2015, but has since recovered by more than 40% as investors begin to buy the stock again. Investment analysts forecast that Anglo American Platinum share price may continue to make good gains and have advised investors to hold their positions in the company.

  • The group has a highly experienced and capable executive team who have implemented effective capital expenditure control measures and streamlining processes which have kept the company profitable and maintained the confidence of shareholders.

  • The company remains an appealing buy for several reasons. It is the world’s biggest producer of platinum and has a strong parent in Anglo American. The group was previously burdened by high costs but management’s focus, but been on selling off the higher-cost operations and improving productivity. The market is however still volatile, which could deter the purchase of Anglo American Platinum shares by new investors.

38. Kumba Iron Ore Limited. JSE: KIO

Kumba Iron Ore shares

Background of Kumba

  • Kumba Iron Ore is a South African iron ore mining company and a subsidiary of Anglo American. The company is the largest iron ore producer in Africa and the fourth largest in the world.

  • Kumba’s flagship project is the Sishen mine in the Northern Cape, which accounted for 70% of the group’s production (or 31.4Mt) in 2015. Also in the Northern Cape, Kolomela mine is the company’s newest operation and contributes around 12Mt of iron ore per year. Thabazimbi mine in Limpopo is the company’s other asset, producing approximately 1Mt per year. Domestic sales accounted for 4.3Mt of product in 2015, with export sales accounting for 43.5Mt.

  • Kumba holds a 73.9% interest in Sishen Iron Ore Company (SIOC), which owns the operating assets of Kumba. The company employs over 11 000 people and makes product for sale to customers in South Africa, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Europe and the Middle East.

  • Kumba shares are available to buy on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) with a market cap of R44.5 billion

Kumba Shares Growth Driver

  • Kumba share price and overall performance has been driven down steeply by the difficult conditions within the global steel industry and the local mining industry. The live online stocks chart shows that Kumba share price has fallen from a high of just over R600 in 2013, to R137.50 by August 2016.

  • The group’s latest annual report described the 2015 financial year as the most challenging in Kumba’s history, with the company having to contend with steeply reduced iron ore prices and depressed financial markets. This forced Kumba to change its life of mine plans and implement restructuring across the group through retrenchments and a refined operating model. The group is in the process of closing operations at Thabazimbi and has increased production at the successful Kolomela mine. Capital expenditure has been reduced by 20%, whilst savings have been achieved on overheads and project and technical study costs.

  • The group’s financial data for the year indicated a sharp drop in operating profit to R2.6 billion from R19 billion the previous year. The forecast doesn’t look good for the company in the short to medium term, with iron ore prices expected to remain depressed. The company believes that the restructuring process has better prepared it for these difficult trade conditions, and continuing attention will be paid to further reducing costs in future.

Kumba Investor Tip

  • Whilst Kumba share price has staged a slight recovery in 2016, the company still faces significant challenges in a very difficult market. Anglo American recently announced an intention to exit their 69.7% interest in the company, which will further dampen the confidence of investors to buy the shares.

  • Despite the drastic austerity measures put in place, investment analysts still predict that Kumba shares will under perform the market. It would take a brave investor to buy the shares today.

39. Investec PLC. JSE: INP

Investec PLC shares

Background of Investec PLC

  • Investec is best termed as an international, specialist bank and asset management company that focuses on providing a diverse range of financial products and services for sale to a niche client base in three principal markets: the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Australia, in addition to smaller markets in other countries.

  • Investec was initialy established as a small leasing and financing company in 1974 in Johannesburg by Larry Nestadt, Errol Grolman and Ian Kantor. From this humble history it has since grown and expanded through a combination of organic growth and strategic moves to buy other companies. Investec shares are available to buy on the London Stock Exchange and started trading on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 1986 after merging with Metboard, a trust company.

  • Investec’s portfolio of services includes banking, financing, lending, investing, equities, commodities, financial advisory services, property development, acquisition and fund management and stockbroking.

  • The company’s market cap currently stands at R30.66 billion. The live online stocks chart shows that Investec share price has enjoyed strong gains over the past five years, although performance has recently been dealt a blow but the weak rand.

Investec PLC Shares Growth Driver

  • Investec’s operations are split into seven primary divisions, namely Asset Management, Weath & Investment, Private Banking, Specialist Banking, Investment Banking, Property and Capital Markets.

  • The Asset Management and Wealth and Investment divisions recorded the strongest growth in 2015, growing by 8.8% and 9.5% respectively. Specialist Banking also registered significant growth and is forecast to be a big contributor to Investec’s profits and Investec share price in future.

  • Despite difficult trade conditions, Investec has effectively managed to penetrate its key markets and has a history of remaining fairly stable through tough times. The tide is starting to turn in a positive direction for economies in South Africa and the UK, which remain a critical factor in determining the group’s future success.

Investec PLC Group Investor Tip

  • Investec has produced solid results during the last couple of years but weaker market conditions and overall growth concerns have recently weighed on the stock and Investec share price has come down from its December 2015 peak of more than R120 to just above R100 by mid-2016.

  • In volatile and irrational markets, good-quality assets can be bought at relatively low prices and Investec is one of them. According to the bank, their opinion is that most of the negatives surrounding the falling rand have been factored in already, meaning that there should now be a return to profitability for the company and investors who purchase Investec shares.

  • As the economy starts to turn and Investec continues to diversify and expand its services through digital platforms, acquisitions and better penetration of exisiting markets, Investec looks to be a fairly good share to buy.

40. Rand Merchant Investment Holdings Limited. JSE: RMI

RMIH shares

Background of RMI Holdings

  • Rand Merchant Investment (RMI) Holdings is an investment holding company with a portfolio of insurance and investment products targeted at the commercial, corporate, retail and public sector. The group’s history can be traced back to 2010 with the spinning off of insurance assets from Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) Holdings, FirstRand and Remgro. RMI Holdings shares were subsequently listed separately on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), although RMB Holdings and RMI Holdings still share the same management team.

  • In order to diversify its traditional financial services offerings, RMI Holdings recently decided to buy into asset management through RMI Investment Managers, and significant stakes in Discovery (25%), MMI (25.5%), OUTsurance (84%) and Merchant Capital (25%). The group will also buy into next generation businesses in the fintech sector, and has established AlphaCode, an innovative financial services platform bringing together various roleplayers to advance the fintech industry.

  • RMI Holdings has a JSE market cap of around R60 billion, with RMI Holdings shareprice enjoying a strong showing on the bourse.

RMI Holdings Shares Growth Driver

  • RMI Holdings had a subdued performance in the 2016 financial year, due to rising inflation, interest rate cycles and muted GDP growth in South Africa. The group recorded an 8% increase in normalised earnings, up to R3.3 billion. Discovery increased its earnings by 7%, driven by increases in Discovery Health, Discovery Life and Discovery Investment, although overall growth was stifled by a 73% increase in investments in new initiatives. Merchant Capital also continued its strong operational performance, whilst investing in core operations and product development.

  • MMI registered disappointing data for the year, with a 16% decrease in normalised earnings driven by low underwriting profits, muted equity investment growth and operational challenges. OUTsurance continued on its upward growth path with a better than anticipated 43% increase in normalised earnings, thanks to improvement in contributions from the Youi Group and good results from operations in South Africa.

  • One of the group’s newest offerings, RMI Investment Managers offers a unique affiliate investment manager model involving investment in and partnership with independent investment managers and specialist investment teams. The company completed its first year of operations, with activities including the appointment of a distribution and operations team, establishing a corporate structure and obtaining regulatory approvals. Investment in next generation businesses will continue to be a focus going forward, expecting to contribute increasingly to profits.

RMI Holdings Group Investor Tip

  • RMI Holdings share price has had an impressive showing on the JSE, with the live online stocks chart highlighting a rise from R22.35 in 2013 to more than R40 in October 2016, although the shares have taken a dip recently due to the stifled economic climate in South Africa. But the company has proven to be a perennially solid contender in the financial services trade, making RMI Holdings shares a worthwhile buy for investors.
