Heard Kumba Iron Ore's six month dividend was double the price of their share price back in 2016, wish I didn't sell in 2018
They were one of my first investments on Easyequities. Bought at R35. Also had to sell reluctantly in 2018 at about R285 because I needed the cash otherwise I would have held longer. I think they've always paid really good dividends.

This false narrative around inflation is really coming apart quickly.

The Bank of Korea now considering rate hikes and any illusions of transitory inflation have gone.

jobless claims coming out in 20 minutes, I expect it to be higher than last week's figure and higher than the forecast

this may signal a reversal in the downward trend and together with inflation impacting prices, may signal the start of the metrics picking up stagflation

jobless claims did nothing and then the employment numbers hit me hard in the commodities

Has anyone heard anything regarding the Metrofile buyout from last year? Considering selling Metrofile and buying some more SSW.
