With turbulent markets abound, share your thoughts on the darlings and dogs out there on the stock markets which we could discuss on a daily / weekly basis as the markets ebb and flow.

Let's help each other make a buck or save a buck with some tips and suggestions on local stocks, ETFs, funds, foreign stocks, investments, opportunities, new products etc

List your picks for buy and/or sell and tell us why you think so. Share some useful insights and information to keep the passive / occasional / armchair investor informed, and lets have some water cooler / coffee machine banter on the picks ! :D

Made a few bucks on RDF - Redefine - seems to have made some ground in the last week - up about 30% for me

THS - Tongaat Hulett Sugar seems like one to watch - looks like they are moving beyond their dark cloud with some news of some positive numbers coming through, still down on the holding but hoping for a positive run.

COH - Curro - beaten badly :crying:

Holding on a beaten SHP - Shoprite, seems like the best of a bad basket at the moment.

Telkom is on the up again.
I'm not personally getting into it this time, but I did time last time almost perfectly.

I think India banned tik tock.. Mobile gaming is massive in Asia (saw this first hand in Singapore and Hong Kong) and Naspers owns a 1/3 of Tencent so the future looks bright although this is a mid to long term investment

I wanted to say that's not too bad but then I remember that a 30c drop on R1.91 is a more than 15% fall. feelsbadman
Yeah, it really is not that bad. I only bought like R900 worth of shares so its not breaking the bank money. Just think I should have done a bit more research and waited a couple of days to see where the share price goes before buying.

I have about 4 stocks that I researched and kept my eye on. Bought 3 of them. The 4th might happen today.

But with RMH, I did not do any research and I am seeing it in the result.

Hindsight is a bitch.
