    TFSA + mutual funds/unit trusts

    Their fact sheets don't have the price, or anything more than the last two distributions. Hence the question.

    TFSA + mutual funds/unit trusts

    One more question on this: anyone know where I can find historical unit prices and distributions? For some I can look at the ETF for a rough idea, but for some funds the ETF and unit trust actually track different indexes (e.g. the property fund).

    SA Computer Buyer magazine - 1990s

    These all appear to be from 1995. I think the Linux column only started in 1996.

    Are AirBnB honest, or do they hide behind loopholes?

    I hope she meant travelling at all would be foolish, and not that flying rather than cruising would be foolish. Because flying is absolutely the safer option here. There are several factors, in my view: - Departure/Arrival: Airport vs Ship port - same same - Duration: Several days on a ship...

    SAA is an "airline for the elites" and must be sold off - Minister

    I'm confused, why is Matashe talking so much sense lately? Wonder if he's eyeing the top spot. Getting behind the **** stuff the tax payers care about could land him a good deal of power. Edit: FFS man, why can't we swear on this forum?

    Big tax hikes coming in South Africa

    Besides the fact that government really should be spending less, particularly on the public sector, raising taxes isn't the only other option. What they really should be focusing on is expanding the tax base. Particularly, formalising the informal economy. This may sound like a tall order...

    Woolworths suspends employee for wearing isiphandla (sacred wristband)

    I heard this discussed on the radio some time ago (not in the context of Woolies, long before this). I don't remember the exact content of the call, but the long and short of it was that isiphandla (sometimes, I guess) can start to smell pretty bad. Bad enough to be toublesome to...

    Big tax hikes coming in South Africa

    Care to share the link? Serious question: What are the factors that result in that steep drop in 2019? It would be useful to see the revenue and spending separately.

    Become a millionaire. It’s easier than you think

    "millionaire" just means you have a million, which you and I both agree isn't "rich" by any definition. Here's a list of literary devices. See if you can figure out which one I was using. I know what I wrote, and what the purpose of my post was. The rest is in your head. Thanks, that's...

    Sorry I misread his question as pertaining to the tax-free account.

    Become a millionaire. It’s easier than you think

    You are completely missing the point of both my post and the OP. It's not about getting the best possible returns. It's about convincing non-savers that it's worth saving. Overcomplicating things with inflation and tax calculations is not going to help. Besides, even at 10% pa, it will take...

    Become a millionaire. It’s easier than you think

    Hey, did you not understand the bit about this being a demonstration of compounding? You realise you can put some of the money in a TFSA and the rest in a regular account and add them totals together, right? Property in high-demand areas is not a measure of inflation in general. It is only a...

    Become a millionaire. It’s easier than you think

    I believe interest is added to your income, so it depends on your top tax bracket. In a TFSA, nada.
